  8. Got a cold coming on. Maybe rest day or afternoon run. Presentation for work is the priority today, and my fitness was determined months ago. I suspect last minute runs this week are more for menta... read more

  9. How long will it take to get from NY Penn station to JFK? Thank you!

      Harry L K.

      I've never been to JFK so I'm not much help. How are you going? Have a ride; cab/bus; subway? I'd wild guess an hour to allow traffic and general craziness of NYC!

      Probably an hour by train and 45 minutes by cab depending on the time of day. It's a hassle, especially with bags, give yourself plenty of time.

    Last LSD 18 km

    Felt really odd, like, I ran for 6 km. My body didnt seem carb depleted or dehydrated. It was raining, and after I thought about it, 18 is a mid-week medium slow run, if I had been obeying Pfitz. T... read more

      Not boring at all Mel..the ocean is very life affirming! Never heard of a moving stitch. It's quite the opposite where I'm at right now..people do get out and exercise but the avg bmi here must be 27 or more. Maybe that's why I got a couple wolf whistles when I ran without a shirt yesterday:-)

      Yeah either he's talking to a young girl and that's really gross or he's talking to a woman married to an uptight guy?? and calling her husband Daddy? But I think that's a rather generous interpretation.
