Day Two: Short Run & Les Mis

First off, a bit of housekeeping. It seems that it will be more practical to write here in the mornings. This will be especially helpful for the days when my run comes later in the evening. So, I typically will wrap-up the previous days events on the following morning. Typically. But not always the case.

Anyway, yesterday I ran 3.87 miles in 30:54. That brings the total mileage for 2013 to 18.07 miles. Only 1,994.93 miles to go. So, far I am 7.03 miles ahead of pace. Back to yesterday’s run. It was way too fast! Extremely windy as well! As I’ve said before, running these miles at close to 8:00 minute-mile is a disaster in the making. I really need to focus more on slowing down these runs. But I was glad to be able to get something in yesterday after the 14+ miles the day before. Tonight looks like a 4-6 mile run.

Food consumption: 3 cups of coffee, spinach salad, vegetarian tortilla soup, spinach smoothie, 2 hot dogs (hands head in shame!), peppermint candy

Movie recommendation: You should see Les Miserables if you enjoyed the play, enjoy musicals in general, or if you enjoy being bombarded and beaten over the head with emotion-bursting scenes played out one after another. I’ve seen it twice. It was even better the second time. Unpopular opinion, but Russell Crowe’s performance is spot-on.

Running playlist: Memory Tapes

Space ails us moderns: we are sick with space.
Robert Frost

All the best.
