    I find the idea that I've done it a bit beyond belief as well, to be honest.

    That method is actually kind of a thing in running training. The fancy runners call that interval training. If you did that 5 days a week, I bet you'd be able to hit the 30 minute 5k thing. I remember well the first time I could do a 5k in 30 minutes. I was elated. It took me the better part of six months to get there!

    60 minutes ran a story tonight about Shalane Flanagan, who is probably my favorite female runner and her quest to win the Boston Marathon. About halfway through the story Anderson Cooper tries to keep up with her as she runs her marathon pace. He is clearly at an all out sprint and she lopes past him, giggling madly, within about 100 meters. The women run about 30 seconds per mile slower than the men.

    Ah, yes ...I have ran for a period of time with improper shoes before. It was when I was in college and I developed some gnarly cartilage on my heels. I have adjusted and it doesn't really effect my running now that I have been using the right equipment. But they heels look like they should be in a Circus Side Show, haha (jk).

    Bristol, Tennessee? Haha. How for is Bristol from London?

    Bristol is about 2 hours west of London by car. Its right next door to Bath.

    You guys know where Bath is? I'll have to remember that. I was joining a conference call with some Americans the other day, and rather than an automated service had some form of greeter signing me in. She asked me were I was from:

    'The UK.'
    'England?'
    'Yes, England.'
    'London, England?'
    'No, Bristol.'
    'London, England?'
    'No, Bristol, England. It's in the South West.'
    'London, England?'
    'Yes, London, England...'

    I dunno if its widely known. It probably depends on the degree to which you've been a tourist in the UK. I think it is a pretty popular spot on the tourist crawl of England for Americans who are contractually required to see Stonehenge. I spent a summer in Exeter while Suited was learning the law over there, so I'm probably not typical in that regard.

    I'm fat and I walk a 5K in 50 minutes. Do one a month. What do you set that treadmill to? The Queen Mum setting?
    Harold Camping was wrong. The world ended on April 15th, 2011.

    Last night I dreamt that I got into some kind of zone where jogging was effortless like floating. Part of it was the music in my ipod. Today I went jogging with no such music and no such feeling of floating. Still, it was a fun little run.

    The last 3 mornings I've run farther each time. Tomorrow I should be ready to cover more distance.

    This is the first week I've gotten really serious about training this season and I've finally been back on the 5 days a week schedule that I usually do during a training cycle. Everything hurts.

    There is a big misunderstanding between the concept of talent and skill, talent you have naturally but skill is only developed by hours and hours of beating on your craft... nobody got to where they were without hard work.

    And then run away?

    Setting out for 6 days a week is more sustainable than 7. You can flex the day off as you need it, without feeling like you failed.

    Just got back from Hawaii where I jogged 4 days in a row. My calves got a little bit sore. Apart from jogging itself, what exercises do you guys do to strengthen your calves and get them ready for longer runs?
