This Week in Running: 6.28 to 7.4.10

Weekly Numbers
25 1/2 miles in 4 runs

2 core workouts

Spent the week on the Jersey Shore and as planned didn't get much running done. Now that the down week is over, it's time to get back into serious training mode. Both with the diet and the running. No more ice cream, ice cream sundaes, smores, cheesesteaks, fried anything, chips, doritos, or other such shore/boardwalk food. The boardwalk, though, is quite the place--scantily clad orange people (surely the opposite of the crakers from Atwood's Oryx and Crake) hocking paraphernalia every ten feet--and if I didn't have so many running t-shirts, I would have been sure to pick up either a "Snooky!!!" or "Jersey Girls Don't Pump Gas" or "I Love My Guidette" or "Free Weezy" t-shirt. After all, they were 4 for $10.


On another note, a cool quote from Anthony Burgess' A Clockwork Orange:
"The attempt to impose upon man, a creature of growth and capable of sweetness, to ooze juicily at the last round the bearded lips of God, to attempt to impose, I say, laws and conditions appropriate to a mechanical creation, against this I raise my swordpen--"

We, runners, lift our flats and spikes against anyone trying to impose a limit or boundary on human potential.
