Slow Sunday

Up at dark o'clock for join my friend for about 21K of his (much longer) run. Further evidence in the "I'm not young anymore" file is that, in conjunction with yesterday's race, I'm now shuffling around like I just ran a hilly marathon.

Re: Feeling blah when running - is there a better way?

Some of it might just be a gradual adaptation over the months ahead. Other things to consider: (1) Shoes — when shoes lose their cushioning (or if you're using a less-cushioned model), it can increase the impacts on your legs. (2) Surfaces — cement sidewalks are a very unforgiving surface. If you ha...

Pi Day Tuesday

How I need a drink, alcoholic of course, after the heavy lectures involving quantum mechanics.

(All aspects of that last sentence apply to me right now.)

Brisk 14K this morning to take advantage of some warmer temperatures (and burn off some frustration).

Sorry for going off topic Way out of line, in my opinion. An 86 year-old dying of cancer is hardly an unnatural tragedy that warrants proselytizations about how best to eat and exercise.

The usual 14K but with weather that can't be dressed for" -20 WC -30 with dry blowing snow. Wear a mask and I'll slow-cook, go without and the headwind sections will freeze and scour my face.

Hmmmm...things seem to be getting a bit heated in this thread, and I think it will help if people just take a breather Note to newcomers: Jennifer and I have met many times in real life and there's no hostility here. I just happen to be a bit of a contrarian when it comes to this particular topic.
