    Look at you guys with your offspring and responsibilities. Meanwhile I’m over here smoking blunts and sluggin bourbon like a fuckin loser. I don’t even wear my wedding ring for shits sake.

    When does one stop being a 30-something year old selfish piece of shit and start allocating discretionary resources towards a greater good? Asking for a friend.

    It sobers you up when the hospital lets you leave with another life that is your responsibility. That first drive home I felt like my car was a bullseye and the world was trying to hit me.

    30 minutes on the track running intervals today, no idea how fast or far I went but it felt good to actually be outside in the brisk air

    I may have to ditch the treadmill while the weather is still nice in TX

    Another 2 yesterday to stay on track with my twice per week plan. Stronger. Probably will do 2 again next week and then up it to 3 the following week. Really trying to avoid the little injuries from pushing too hard to get back to where I was.

    4.5 miles with the dogs in a couple of inches of slushy snow. Temps in the mid 30s.

    3.0 miles on the treadmill this morning.

    Is that the VaporMax Flyknit?

    Rookies on the job, but I’ll cut these 7-year olds some slack. It’s only their 4th year in the factory.

    This is the ‘Vaporfly 4%’ — at this point I just collect and stockpile them for future road races. It’s a controversial shoe that allegedly yields the highest evergy return in ‘lab tests’. People cite the full length carbon fiber plate as a cantilever-type mechanism and thus being an unfair advantage. However Misuno has been using the tech since the 90’s, so it’s nothing new. Others say it’s all about the ‘Zoom-X’ foam.

    Net/net its a bunch of marketing bullshit. But placebo or not I feel faster pushing a hard pace in this model so I buy em.

    6.5 miles with the dogs (8:58/mile pace, 58:32 total time), much of it on partially frozen slush. Temps in the mid 30s.

    I also PR'd the .63 mile Strava segment that contains most of the climbing in mile 5.
