  1. RUN
    good Therapy in the field 6.3 km 00:40 10:13 pace

    Headed to the small sports field and found it swarming with tots in team outfits playing soccer. It was actually a highly amusing spectacle verging on the ridiculous and I wish I'd had my phon... read more

    good planks again 00:08:00

    Last night. Planks again. I was reading the next book in the series, "The Cool Impossible" by Eric Orton, and thinking, well, probably gonna make myself some wobble boards etc.

  3. walk
    good just a short stroll 2.5 km

    Just a little stroll to the café. It was hot. I didn't wear my knee brace. All is good. Happy Saturday! BTW I just finally read "Born to Run", it was excellent.

      Although I also used to run barefoot as a teenager (because we couldn't afford to buy me running spikes :) BTR changed my running life pretty completely a few years ago. I run barefoot or in sandals quite a lot now, and love it. Even though I'm running ultra distances and getting old, I still wear very minimal shoes.

      My knee, having no cartilage to speak of, needs the cushioning of Altras for road racing, but offroad I wear my minimus trails and have a pair of huaraches I've been planning to try out but never got around to yet... BTR is definitely a good book, I enjoyed it a LOT. It might have changed the entire running conversation to the point where I benefitted even without reading it before.

      Thanks, everyone, the ankle swelling and pain have gone down, now it's just stiff the way it usually is these days! LOL Ric and John re the cologne, I hope you got the double pointed joke about that ("If you want to unfairly beat your close rivals... wear cologne.") I agree though, it's senseless, and what's worse, I am sure they can't even smell the nice fresh air they're out in, so it's even more senseless...

      Wow, $90 for 5K is crazy! I'd have opted for a different race too. Great race today, Pierre, and congrats on the AG3!
