Session #32: 3.3mi / 43m53s. 1.5mi at a 5.0mph jog, cooldown, .5mi at 5.4mph, cooldown, final stretch of a bit over a lap at 5.8mph. That's right, close to 2 minutes clipped off my best time. What was different? First, I ran yesterday, so today defied the conventional "train every other day" wisdom. But the every-other-day thing is intended to promote cross-training, so that a) stressed tissue gets a chance to heal and b) the little oddball muscles that don't get worked in your main exercise do get some...

Session #31: 3.3 mi / 46m26s. 7.4mph is sustainable for a half-lap, but that's my limit - I shot for 7.5, and it just takes more core muscle power than I have. I can feel a pronounced difference in my calf tone, and somewhat in my quadriceps; but the off-day calisthenic schedule has been spotty at best, so my hamstrings, glutes, hips and abs just aren't up to sprinting yet.

"Every one who is familiar with MMOG's (massive multiplayer online games), knows the stories of people who are so addicted to playing these games that it costs them their real life friendships and relationships. There are also stories though of people who meet in a MMOG and fall in love"

Session #30: 3.3mi / 45m26s, peaking at 7.4mph for a half-lap. I haven't found that full-mile-at-a-jog groove again since that one time a few sessions ago, but you know what? It's OK. Because I will. I'm already routinely taking full laps at 6.0mph. Remember when that wasn't even my half-lap top speed?

I always thought "keine(r) macht für dich mehr" would translate as "no more power for you" or "no power for you anymore", but "no one does more for you" makes a lot more sense in the context of the song in which it's most prominent ("Light"), of which this might be the kickin-est remix: Musik ist Macht, eine ausgesprochene Verbindung von Schlau und Dumm. Geraüschsüchtigen wird unter immensem Druck und Leidenschaft grosste Freude und Vertrauen abgesaugt. Der Heldenriff ist der Froschfresser, De... (...more)
