Two Runs

Not much to report over the last couple days. Still in recovering mode.

Did a 3-miler on Thursday. Didn't feel that great. I basically had no energy. I've chalked it up to lack of fuel. I was hungry when I started the run, and I just got hungrier. Luckily, it was a short run, and there were Pringles waiting at the end.

Took Friday off, but ran today. Another 3. Felt relatively really good...if that makes sense. My hamstrings are tight. Have been this week. I'm not sure if it's marathon of recovery or the fact that my runs have been sporadic....or at least less frequent. I'll keep stretching and keep an eye on them. But overall, I'd say I'm feeling good.

Speaking of marathons, check out this article from the NY Times.
Two points:
1. D and I decided that it's really great that we both run, so we both get it.
2. Everyone in this story, on both sides, struck me as self-absorbed jerks. It would have been nice if the NY Times had found some normal people. Then again, it probably wouldn't have been as good of a story.

Greatest Invention Ever? Greatest. Invention. Ever.

Probably invented by the same clever folks in Virginia who distributed posters trying to convince democrats that in order to ease congestion on election day democrats would be voting on Wednesday while republicans vote on Tuesday.

I'm musing that the same folks in that article are related to the guy in that picture you posted a while back from the ad of the hotel. $900 muscle stimulator needed to recover from long runs?!?! An ice bath or elevating your legs is much cheaper and probably works five times as well. Yuppie idiots...
