So I just did an hour or so of semi-serious blogging, got a little adventurous with the html… didn’t save properly and lost the lot….. Bollocks!!
Let’s try again:
We’ll start with the running: I think I’ve decided that the ankle thing is good enough to stand up to a diluted version of whats left of my Daniels Pfitzinger 55mpw/18 week plan which I haven’t even looked at for the last two weeks. Next weeks total milage should be 55 miles ending with a twenty-miler on Sunday, normally this wouldn’t be a problem [other than the usual lack of time], however I’ll see how the body feels/reacts to picking it back up. It’s a bit of a coincidence that the last time I prepared for Boston I got injured, albeit through stupidity [overtrained/lack of rest/pushed way too hard] and not by a dumb pothole. So yesterday I dodged the lousy weather and ran on the TM at the gym. 1 mile w/up 8:30, 4 miles steady-state, 1 mile LT 6:40 total: 6 miles 44:59. No real discomfort, just a dull constant ache above the ankle. I’m taking today off and will go meet the CR folks for a 3 hour LSD in the morning, which I’m looking forward to. Shame that Irongoddess can’t make it….. Hope you’re feeling better after Friday’s accident
So what’s with today’s pic? I hear you ask… On Thursday evening I went to a belated Valentines concert at the tiny church around the corner from here. Not really my bag but it was for a good cause, The Montreal’s Childrens Hospital. Anyway I really don’t care for musicals…. with the exception of Westside Story. The voices were awesome, Marie-Annick Béliveaue is now my fave classical sweetie, if you ever get a chance to hear this lady sing, go! Anyway they sang a couple of tunes from Westside Story… so grommit got his cultural fix for a while.
On another note, it seems like the car will be sold I will miss it, it’s right up there with my running… well almost. However, K & I took grommit jr. for a test drive in one of these and although it’s a little heavier it’s almost as zippy… the AWD is like glue, even on yesterday’s ice. I’ll miss the 337 all the same, ho humm.
Bought a couple of albums today… actually I swapped an Xmas gift that I already had. I’m still stuck on the Artic Monkeys check out the video I also picked up the “she want’s revenge” album. As an old Joy Division fan this appeals…. cute vid too … seems to work best in real audio… sorry about all the vids to day but hey… blos is self-indulgence right?
