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.

Greenlake. Tight calves. Objective today was to keep HR below 150, which made for 8:30-8:45 miles. Hip/back still a bit sore: weird, since it's not really by a joint. But I guess you can sprain/strain anything with connective tissue. Didn't affect my stride in any obvious way.

AM: Greenlake. Woke at 4:00 and never got to sleep again, so did another sub-150 HR special, keeping it mostly under 140 until the very end.

PM: 3.5 at 8:00/mi. A little faster than I'd intended for this experimental two-a-day. Totally unforced, body just seemed to want to go there. The mileage isn't unprecedented or anything. We'll see how it feels in the morning.

Greenlake in the AM. Right hamstring a bit sore, otherwise OK. Took a couple miles to warm up, then hit superluminary speed beating the light across Aurora. Fittingly enough.

PM: a distinctly subluminary 4. Many young persons underfoot in the dark; did my best not to trample them, and the rabbits neither. But it was hard to see, so I can't be sure.

super slo-mo after work around the lake. Did mix in 6x100m strides at 6ish pace. After the final go my slo-mo was barely mo, though -- whoa! -- so I go home.

postscript: 6ish pace, hah! Garmin claims I topped out at 16mph on the second set. Now if only I could sustain that for a mile....

Yes, boys and girls, today's word is S   L   O   W.  Mr. Shin was very displeased with our attempt yesterday to make like Jeremy Wariner. Kept looking around for a pace that felt alright, started at 8:30, descended into the 9s, finally settled on 10:15.

My highest mileage 7 days thus far, at 41, though a fairly modest 28 for the "week." Tomorrow is off, and we'll start off right on Sunday with 14.
