      I've read Running Times exactly once in the last year--last night in the waiting room at my daughter's dentist's office--and it was this article. Pete Magill is wise.

       

      (I also read the article on Meb which was good too.)

      Happy to be here.

        That was a good read.  Every time I read something like that I start to second guess everything that I'm doing.

            Actually it's too good an article: I started to score myself on how many of the 12 I'm guilty of but it could depressing so i didn't tally it up.


            I'm back!

              NO ONE SETS OUT TO TRAIN INCORRECTLY

               

              For some reason I had a hard time parsing this correctly. However you start to train, it's not incorrect?? Is this one of the mistakes??


              Finally PRed!!!

                Hmm, I read it as "No one starts their training with the intention of training incorrectly, but runners often do end up making mistakes in their training"...seemed to make sense to me, but I guess I didn't analyze the sentence in great detail...

                I'm back!

                  Yeah, I got it, it just took me a minute.

                   

                  I was happy to see I'm actually pretty good about all of these.

                   

                  MISTAKE 1: START TOO FAST

                  I'm especially good here. My race pacing is awesome. I haven't gone out too fast in a race since last weekend.

                    Running is stupid

                      Thanks for posting that. I loves me some Pete Magill.

                        That is a great article.  I am glad to see I have corrected most of those mistakes in my last year of running.

                         

                        However I did make a BIG mistake a couple days ago that I will call mistake #13....

                         

                        #13:  I put on some new-skin on nipple #1 and was beginning to put some on nipple #2 before a really long run... All of a sudden I noticed a burning sensation.  Then that burning sensation really got worse, and quickly......  I looked at the bottle and it was not "new skin", it was a bottle of "Compound W" that someone had set out!   (((Talk about Nipples on fire, Jeeeeezus!!!!)))  :-D

                          Mistakes !?  Are they kidding!?  These are the 12 key points of training plan!  (Come to think of it, I do get injured 7-8 times a year and my times are getting slower and slower and sower....)

                          There is only one acceptable pace...all out suicide...

                          ...and today is a good day to die!
