AntiRabbit - Its been cool to watch you get back into fitness after that surgery man. You are completely back. Awesome. Get those nipples body glided up.
I ran 6 tonight with 2 up tempo miles (probably like 5:55 pace). Felt like shit. I have lost a lot of fitness. Still I was f*ckin stoked to run at all!
Looking forward to racing next month and getting back into shape. Hopefully I'm on the other side of this injury.
Man, 1:30 would be an epic PR for me. I don't know why, but things go a bit haywire on race day and I never, ever, do as well as I think I should. My PR is 1:42, and that day I had a head cold. I was hanging on at the end but turned 1:42 for the last lap and still ran home after, so I still had something in the tank.
Good luck for a speedy recovery!

I never, run to classical, which I might have to remedy. I don't get Mahler in general, but I do like the 2nd.

Okay, I can see Shotakovich 5th or 10th, maybe the 4th. 24th prelude and fugue. But now that I think of it, I would pick Tchaikovsky (4th Sym) and maybe Prokofiev.
Interesting realization: I have to meditate on a major run the day before, or I struggle to complete it. Also, my successful long runs have started with a podcast, not the normal music. Mental slight-of-hand? Probably.
Today: was going to run an hour, then dialed it back, then dialed it back more, 4 miles, 35 minutes. It was awfully humid and a bit warm out there, and I tanked after about 3 miles. ah well.
