|I’m Adding Soy milk to This|
There’s no doubt; I’m losing what little speed I had. I made it to the oval torture chamber this morning. I started out with 1.5 mi of warm up and easy drills. I did a an easier version of what I used to do; 1600m, 2x800m, 4x400m, 2x200m. I ran half the distance of an interval between sets. I felt like quitting during the second lap of last 800m. My splits were a lot slower than they used to be. I was expecting this so it didn’t come as a surprise. I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me. I haven’t pushed so hard in a long time. I miss my high school cross country legs and lungs. The weather was nice; there was just enough breeze going to keep it cool.
I do core workouts three times a week. I find them really boring to be honest. I tell myself that these workouts are going to keep me running without injuries for a long time. I’ve been lucky without any serious injuries all these years. I just have this chronic back issues that really affect my running on some days.

I’m one of those people who never go to a doctor. I just don’t like doctors and hospitals. Let’s hope I won’t have to spend any time at clinics and hospitals.
When I see somebody I haven’t seen in a while he/she typically asks if I’m still running. They know the answer. Instead, he/she should just say, ” Why do you run? ” I’d answer, ” I just do. “
I’m really disappointed in Lance Armstrong and all the others who cheat in sports. He has let a lot of people down. The person he let down the most is his son who believed in him when everybody else didn’t. I’m a parent. I don’t know how Lance can look at his son after all this. I wonder what his VO2 MAX. would have been without the drugs.
My next run is a 17 miler on Monday.
