National Running Day (Read 231 times)

    Apparently Nobby doesn't know, I have a rest day today according to RunningWizard.  Seeing as my legs need the rest day, I'll take it Wink

    "Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"  - Peter Maher

     

    "Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run."  -Monte Davis

      I'm celebrating this high festival day by recalling two good runs earlier in the week, planning tomorrow's run, and maybe buying one of those Runner's World marathon training plans.

      Goals for 2014:

      Sub-3:30 marathon; run for a year free from major injuries or interruptions

      PRs: 3:27 marathon; 1:41 half; 45:07 10K; 23:26 5K; 6:02 mile; <12 parsecs Kessel Run


        I will celebrate by sleeping in and working late.

         

        Couldn't sleep in.  Did work late. Walked to the grocery store at lunch time. I hate to follow a crowd, unless I've paid an entrance fee.

          I will celebrate by sleeping in and working late.

           

          I retired from USN a few weeks ago, my plan was to actually sleep late now.  (Can't wake up too early and spend all my time bored watching "Days of our Lives" and shit!)

           

          What has happened since?  I have woken up at 5:30 am every single day, no alarm clock, just as the first twilight is on the horizon.  Morning doves and Robins make a couple hoo hoos and chirps, and boom, I am up!   I then run 6 miles or so, come home, and the wife and kids haven't even gotten up yet to start getting ready for work/school....  So much for me sleeping in.  :-)

           

          PS.  GOOD NEWS!  Days of our lives is off the air!   After 97 years, finally!   Hallelujah!!    BAD NEWS:  The $h1t they replaced it is just as bad!

           

          ....So now I plan to run at midday on some days too.....  Big grin

          The Plan (big parts)→  /// April:  Hampton, VA 24 Hour Run for Cancer  ///   May:  3 Days at the Fair (12 Hour)  ///  Nov:  New York Marathon (Staying at the Waldorf Astoria, its a "Bucket List" thing.  Can someone loan me some Zamunda money to help pay for it?)   ∞

            Did you?

             

            Who comes up with this stuff, anyways? Not like holidays the card companies make up. Shoe industry?

             

            Had I bothered to read the about section, it is actually sponsored by groups I do support. BAA, ATC and so on.

             

            I did, as I did for the 209 consecutive days before it, and hopefully 200+ after it.

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

              I was at the track at 6 am running intervals (my wimpy version) yesterday & did not know it was national running day.   did I get extra bonus points?
