pm--4.5 I took a little break to see if anything would heal or if I would mentally want to get back at it. The aches seemed to slumber for a few days, but they are tossing and turning now. I went up the big hill on the way to the turkey farm and flipped to make the run 35 minutes. Wanted to go farther, but it felt like I forgot how to run, and my legs never really loosened up. RHR--49. 

Last year, I kept track of the books I read and ended up with 62, a mixture of fiction and nonfiction. Since the turn of the new year, I've finished 4 more. 

Totto-chan: The Little Girl at the Window by Tetsuko Kuroyanagi was a pretty quick read about a curious, fun-loving girl who gets expelled from school and the fantastic experience she had subsequently at a nontraditional school. Helped me see what can happen when we seek to understand others. 

Beartown by Fredrik Backman tells the tale of a desolate hockey-loving town and how people choose to handle a criminal act by the star player of the junior team. Made me think a lot about how we are more willing to make concessions for those we see as extraordinary. 

The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare an Elizabethan hit. Proof that those who seem insane often have the sanest perspective. 

The Self-Made Olympian by Ron Daws recounts a self-admitted average runner's pursuit of Olympic glory. My favorite quote:

No runner is so untalented that he cannot improve vastly enough to beat the more talented ones whose approach is less intense. I'm not claiming that any runner with club feet and asthma can, by scheming and whipping himself in training, beat those of world-record caliber who combine great natural talent with stone-hard discipline, but that in fully extracting his innate capabilities he may venture into worlds never dreamed of.

I felt rough when we started but perked up a bit and really felt handsomely good when we finished. That's good. The frustration was high throughout the day.

I finished Exit West by Mohsin Hamid. It's a book about two young folks falling in love in a war-torn country and finding a way out through a mysterious dark doorway. Decent contemporary fiction w/ some magic thrown in.

No run. Doc-in-law says I have walking pneumonia, so I decided that I would play it safe and get better. I've been wheezing and having trouble feeling any fitness gain over the last 2 weeks. Perhaps there's a reason for that. 

I finished The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. It's a top candidate for Great American Novel. I wonder what percentage of my AP Lit kids have an educated opinion on that. Quiz? Should I?

I biked around the 'hood a few times. The heart was pumping pretty hard after a so-so effort. The lungs are not firing on all cylinders. 

I also finished a book that was highly rated on Amazon. It's a graphic novel by Eleanor Davis called You & A Bike & A Road. The book chronicles the author's bike trip from Tucson, AZ to Athens, GA. She's on the road for around 2 months before her knees say uncle and force her to forgo the last 10 days and hitch a ride from her husband. It was a quick read and an interesting topic. If Spandex is optional, some bike tripping might be cool one day.

pm--5.5 Looped over by the mall and finished with some hill circuits. OK day.

While proctoring the ACT, I finished Bob Schul's In The Long Run. I was most interested in the training he did with Mihaly Igloi, and, while the book didn't go into great detail about the training, it is apparent that Schul feels like he owes a lot of his success to the training Igloi introduced to him. On another note, there were a few quotes I enjoyed.

"Many things could have stopped me if I had looked on the downside of circumstances and perpetuated the negative. I would never have gotten to this point of running with the greatest athletes in the world. It is important, of course, for healthy thinking to feel and discuss injustices and disappointments, but the mind takes in as many thoughts as it is given and we must let the negatives go as quickly as possible.

"This includes, most importantly, self-esteem. All those disappointments in life are just that--disappointments. They are not because 'I am a bad person and deserve bad things to happen,' but because that is the way life is." (103)

"I now fully believed in myself. It was a long, gradual process that came one small step at a time. It wasn't enough that I just mouthed the words. I had to believe, deep within my soul, completely. I dispersed all doubts and replaced them with the knowledge that what I had done to prepare myself had placed me in a position where I knew I could overcome any obstacle. I found ways to build a solid wall of knowledge, confidence, and self-esteem; and if that wall should become cracked within the final months of preparation, I could repair it quickly with my strongest block. That block, the one that I mention so often in this writing: the resurgence of positive thinking and its domination over self-doubt." (110)

"There is a big difference in the pain levels among athletes and while some are able to continue driving even when their bodies are hurting, others will succumb to the pain and slow down. In my training I brought my body to the pain threshold and forced it through time after time. In the process I conditioned my mind to handle more and more pain." (162).

I did finish The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. It’s a dystopian novel that is getting some buzz because of its serialization on Hulu and our current political climate. Not sure if it’s timing or what, but I didn’t love the book. The heaviness of the story and the way it affected my mood subsequently left me cynical.

No run. I did do some cleaning and mowed the lawn. I also finished A Sense of Where You Are by John McPhee. McPhee is an engaging writer who makes you interested in subjects you would’ve previously never pursued. This book is about Bill Bradley and his playing days at Princeton. What a phenomenal read! A few great passages follow. 

“After watching Bradley play several times, even when he was eighteen, it seemed to me that I had been watching all the possibilities of the game that I had ever imagined, and then some. His play was integral. There was nothing missing. He not only worked hard on defense, for example, he worked hard on defense when the other team was hopelessly beaten. He did all kinds of things he didn’t have to do simply because those were the dimensions of the game.” (7-8)

“One effect that Bradley has had on Princeton has been to widen noticeably the undergraduate body’s tolerance for people with high ethical standards. ‘He is a source of inspiration to anyone who comes in contact with him,’ one of his classmates says. ‘You look at yourself and you decide to do better.’” (41-42)

I also finished Going After Cacciato by Tim O'Brien. It's a Vietnam novel w/ a nice dose of Magical Realism. The basic premise of the novel is that Cacciato deserts and decides to walk from Vietnam to Paris. His squad goes after him. Near the end of the book, I found a great quote:

"Peace of mind is not a simple matter of pursuing one's own pleasure; rather, it is inextricably linked to the attitudes of other human beings, to what they want, to what they expect. The real issue is how to find felicity within limits. Within the context of our obligations to other people. We all want peace. We all want dignity and domestic tranquillity. But we want these to be honrable and lasting. We want a peace that endures. We want a peace we can be proud of. Even in imagination we must obey the logic of what we started. Even in imagination we must be true to our obligations, for, even in imagination, obligation cannot be outrun." (320-321)

I finished a book of essays, Maps and Lengends, by Michael Chabon. He's a good writer who uses lots of $100 words. This book tackles the underestimation by the literati of genre fiction--Sherlock Holmes, comic books, horror stories, etc. It also gave some insight into his writing process and research. Probably not a book for everyone.

Earlier this week, I finished A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It's the first Sherlock novel and includes a lengthy middle section about Utah and the Mormons. Everything ties in at the end. I promise. 

I am also just wrapping up Candide by Voltaire. Lots of terrible things happen, but Candide has trouble shaking the philosophy of his first teacher--"It all works out for the best." Like I read somewhere, you laugh out loud as you read it, not because it's funny but beacuse you don't know what to do when more terrible things come to pass.

I finished a short novel, The Wave: the classroom experiment that went too far by Todd Strasser, a student recommended to me. It's a quick read and an interesting look at an experiment a teacher used to teach students about the momentum in a fascist movement. It's based on a true story from the life of Ron Jones.

I actually enjoyed the eating aspects as much as the running aspects because this old body keeps telling me that what I eat does affect how I feel and move. I just might try some recipes in the next few weeks.

I just finished The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis. It's fantasy-lite w/ a slew of different critters and sailing to the end of the world. Not as heavy as something like Tolkien or Martin but a quick, fun read. I'll make it through the series in another week or so.
