It’s A Mystery

What’s been aggravating my food allergies, that is. AGAIN, misery. Oh mystery, please be solved. Sigh…

So after feeling like doo doo for a couple days, I went to the gym tonight and did a little RPM cycling class and some core. Tomorrow we’re due winter weather tomorrow, so maybe I can use those Yak-Trax [...]

Is That It?

So I did my short, little 12.2 trail miles today. Yeah, short, compared to the previous 22 miles. Since I’m all rested and stuff from riding only 4 hours yesterday, I do this run quicker than my other trail runs. It was good. I gazelled and loped up hills and floated down them, finishing in [...]

Crazy Done Rubbed Off

So last night I’m deciding how far to ride today considering I’m tapering off some volume to rest up for the Uwharrie 20 miler in a week. You know, some decent mileage, but nothing too long so I don’t tire myself out. Something “shorter”. So I decide on 4 hours.

Later, I realize, “Good [...]

The Inverse Relationship of Layers & Responsiveness

p5rn7vb

It’s a well know organizational truism, at least in Human Resources circles, that more layers means slower responsiveness. In other words, more layers of management, the more people have to review and approve something before anything can get done. That’s why small companies are “nimble” and big ones “slow and bureaucratic.”

Tonight, I have [...]

Treadmill Dance

Let it be known that I abhor running on treadmills. It’s totally not bad at all to run in the worst of conditions so long as you’re properly dressed for it. Why in the world run on a moving rubber band to nowhere in a stuffy gym. Plus, it makes my calves more sore than [...]

Gluten Sensitivity is The Pits

Argggh!!!! I was doing so well avoiding those evil glutenous poisons.

For those that don’t know, I have this stupid gluten sensitivity that is pretty obnoxious. If I eat anything with gluten (no wheat, rye, oats, or barley) or a derivative thereof, I feel like kaka for days and not back to normal for a [...]

Good Intentions Great Outcomes

I have one of those Deepak Chopra books that’s been hidden among the other tomes on my overfilled bookshelves for years. For some reason, I pulled it down and put it somewhere so it will get read every now and then. The pages I landed on when I dipped into it today talk about Intentions.

Running Videos – Flocasts

I thought I’d share part of the reason it took me so darned long to post a long run report– many hours after I actually completed the run. Recently, I found these Flocasts, which are short clip videos about the elite running world. I particularly enjoyed some of the Deena Kastor interviews.

Enjoy!

Longest Run

I didn’t beat the sleet, but I did beat my previous record for longest time running. Not longest distance, longest TIME by a few minutes. I covered a little over 22 miles, I think, which took 3 hours and 36 minutes. It was cold with freezing rain. It’s official. I’m hard core.

What surprised [...]
