20 miles later.....

ran a fun 20 miles on Sunday. Great day and on a route i had never done before. Left the house and only took my garmin and mp3 player.

Stopped for water around mile 11 and a quick gatorade at mile 17. total time 2:49....that includes total walk breaks of 12 minutes.

Now, here's what not to do after a 20 miler....Do not go and sit in for two hours watching Iron Man, great flick by the way....and yeah....comic book fanboys out there....definitely worth the "Ferris" moment at the end of the credits....

Back to the point.....about 20 minutes into the movie the cramps started to set in. Both legs, from the ankles to the tops of the hamstrings....major charlie horses.....oh the humanity!!!!

And yeah, not like i can stand up in the crowded theater to stretch.....Nooooo, i gotta stretch out, by making my best.....congressman-picking-up-a-quickie-in-the-next stall...sit down stretch.

Christ, the things i'll do to get outta mowing the lawn.

Also, Tuesday was an easy 7 miler at a 7:48 pace.

Guess, i'm done as Fun Guv wants the computer again.....Go figure after being gone all day, i get to scarf down a pb&j and have about 15 minutes to throw a post together before getting booted.....i'll never get to any political sarcasm.....

thanks for reading

You've got to put your foot down and demand more computer time. I'm tired of these biweekly updates.

Wait a minute....I didn't boot him off the computer. I finished up what I was doing and then turned it over to him. I just asked him to leave it on when he was done. I never said he had to hurry, he decided to do that all on his own.

Enjoy that taper.

Is that you that's been tapping your toe under the stall door? I thought you might be our senaor so I didn't respond.

Luki,

Really nice long run. It looks like you will be ready for Bayshore.
