JRAD delivered the goods once again last night. These guys just tap into that psychedelic vibe. So good. Also the Capitol Theatre is just outstanding. They’ve got that place dialed in.
Thinking I should try and catch a few more shoes this winter.  :sbw:

Sick! You should try and get to some more shows, too.  :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

Your pace is coming down too!
I think if you put a half on your radar, sub-2 is in your reach.

Man, I literally just checked that this morning, and made a chart of paces I'd need to break 2:10 (9:54/m), 2:05 (9:32/m), and sub-2 (9:09).

Yesterday I did a half in 2:16:37 (10:26/m), and my PR from Fall 2017 was 2:14:27 (10:16/m)...so I was only 10 sec off pace...I could beat that. And I checked the calendar and there's a half in 8 weeks, I was thinking, can I shave off 32 sec/mile in that much time to break the 2:10? And maybe progress thru the year to break 2hrs in 2019? That'd be amazing.

I have a feeling being 21 weeks nicotine free has something to do with this.  :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

Yo aug, what's this book you posted you're re-reading? I meant to write it down, but I can't find where you posted that, on strava? IG?

I've been reading this one called Slow Burn, by Stu Mittleman, talking about running slower to burn energy more efficiently and get more efficient with your heart rate, etc...basically all leading to improved running. And someone else rec'd 80/20 by Matt Fitzgerald, but I haven't picked that up or know what it's about yet, but I'm guessing something similar. Every read either of those?

(Sorry you're still sick and not out crushing miles.)

I reread “How Bad Do You Want It?”, also by Matt Fitzgerald.
Although I haven’t read his 80/20 book (or Stu’s), that’s exactly how I train.
80% easy runs and 20% goal oriented.
“Most” of my crew follows the same ratio, although some are just balls out all week.

If you haven’t read it already, Ultramarathon Man by Dean Karnazes is a great read.

What’s on your calendar???

Yeah, I read Dean's Ultramarathon Man already...and that was cool as a memoir and motivation, but I've been wanting to read something more about training, and my brother in law got me that Slow Burn book. I'm only like 40 pages in so I can't really judge it yet, but I know the back is full of work out plans.

I don't have anything really on the calendar, after that full last year, I felt really burned out, and just kinda drifted, but the last 2 months or so I've just been trying to build base miles again. The last 2-3 weeks though, I've been really enjoying getting those longer distance runs in again. Like a lot. And doing the whole "active" recovery miles, as opposed to taking the next day off after a long run.

2 great games
Major blown call

Re- OT. I would argue that there is no way to make it totally fair. In the college way, the team that gets the ball 2nd has an unfair strategic advantage. Knowing if they need 3 or 7 changed strategy and play calling, especially 4th down.

So it snowed for a good 24 hours+ here in the upper Connecticut River valley, VT/NH central border region. Easily two feet in the hills, probably three for the ski areas, a solid 20+ inches even down at the river...

Stopped falling around 5 or 6 tonight and the temp dropped FAST, which is fine--I'd rather have dry powder to drive in than wet slop or ice.

CRAZY thing though? The wind gusts up on my hill are blowing enough snow to trigger the motion-activated lights in the driveway. It's like a less annoying version of an over-sensitive smoke detector.
