A Good Week

That's right! Double posts today. Look out blogosphere here I come!

I had a good week of "training" this week. I wrapped it up with an easy 4-mile run this afternoon. A run that started with redneck, inbred assholes purposely swerving their giant, jacked-up pick up at me. I'm sure they'll pass their ignorance along to their 6 children. As I was finishing my run, I nearly got clipped by another guy with a bumper sticker that read "My Other Ride is My Girlfriend." Ah, Maine.

Of course, I caused a little ruckus on this run, too. As I was turning the corner into our street I passed a mother here approximately 6 year old daughter. Mom was on the cell phone and turned one way to see me. Her daughter turned the other and turned directly into her mother's bent elbow. Sorry.

Even with all that, it was a good week. Another short mileage week, only 10. But with the skiing, I ended up with 8.5 hours of training. Pretty solid for an old man. I'm definitely feeling tired, but really good overall. I'm hoping to put in another good week next week, and then a quasi-taper heading into the race on Feb. 3.

Hey Ryan, gotta love running in Northern New England! At least you were able to stay upright throughout your whole run.

Kevin - I find running upright easier than on my hands. Hope to see you on Tuesday. I'll definitely check out your blog, especially when I'm feeling fast. Your results can put me back in my place.
