Weekend Off

It is strange to have a weekend off from racing. We're racing at BU next weekend in a pretty big meet so coach whaled on us this week. Tuesday's workout was incredible - 3 * 200, 2 * 300, 2 (600, 400, 300, 200, 100) - all fast! Thursday's workout was a little more reasonable - 9 * 300 in 48-51. I hit 50-51 each 300 and was at the end of the pack. It is incredible to run with such talented people. I'm really excited to see how our team does later in the season...I'm thinking of the big outdoor meets in June/July. Wow. We could have some outstanding races.

I'm feeling my age. Every day, I have to stretch twice - once after my morning run and once at the end of the day. I didn't have to do this a few years back. I wish someone would have warned me that this would happen in my later 20s. Ah well...

Superbowl tomorrow. An excuse for the American public to get drunk, eat a bunch of fried food, and sit around cheering on a bunch of semi-overweight, testosterone-y men grunting around the field running into each other. Our sport is so much more civilized than that. Except for that race when I peed on myself.
