Personal:

I know a secret technique for opening mangos taught me by a Wolof sorcerer. I was briefly a political appointee at the U.N. I am intimately familiar with a disciple of David Hume.

Stunning day. Felt great-- so great that I didn't even pay attention to the slight abrasion on my ankle where the sock was too low. Bled all over my new shoes! Other than that they are perfect, like no shoes at all.

Nice day, partly cloudy pleasant fall temperatures. Hard to believe it's December 4. The gauze over the blister kept riding up so had to stop two or three times but other than that a pleasant run. Feeling stronger progressively. Another week at this rate and then will start adding back-to-backs.

Beautiful fall evening -- on Dec 6! Light drizzle, or mist rather. Felt good. Stretch at 2.5, seemed to untie something near the Achilles. Had a little burst at about 5.25 (catching the green light at River St.) Nice rhythm, just need to take off 10 pounds or so before looking too hard to find it.

Worked out on the elliptical and treadmill. Feeling pretty heavy, weight doesn't seem to be much higher but time to ditch the visceral fat. Nice to be back in Washington state.

Ok, here it is. Up to the track which has a great forgiving surface. Five reps of stadium-steps too. Cooldown on the elliptical 15 minutes.

AM: Just the run and five reps stadium steps. Would be great to go home to Cambridge in January at 160.

 PM:  35 min on the elliptical - 500 calories (by Procor calculation). Weighed out at 169 - somewhat demoralizing.
