SIDE STITCHES. That is sad. It's been 2 years since an "easy run" gave me side stitches.
Yesterday's run, 5 miles in 45:28 (9'06" pace) -- side stitches for last 1.5 miles.
This morning's run, 6 miles in 54:21 (9'04" pace) -- side stitches for over half of the run.
Legs felt fine, knees and ankles need a break at this point.
20 mile week. Maybe next week I will shift to 3 or 4 workouts with a long run on Saturday.
7 miles in 2 days.
3 miles in 27:22 yesterday (9'07" pace) at a 2% incline
4 miles in 36:27 today (9'07" pace) at a 2% incline
I'm feeling a little sore, but nothing too noticeable. I definitely wasn't slowed down by any pain today. The one thing that I *am* having trouble with? Running for such a *long time*.
The Trouble with Twitter
The trouble with social networking... (see The Social Brain Hypothesis, page 184, column 3)
British anthropologist Robin Dunbar [...] noted in 1992 that humans—like other primates—can handle only 150 relationships. If we try to add many more connections, our little brains get overloaded.
The conclusion from a ballpark example...
Thus Twitter has a real value of $12.26 per user. Compare that with Facebook, which has a perceived value of $300 a user—or at least it did last year, when Microsoft purchased its 1.6% stake for $240 million and the site had 50 million users.
Even with this example, there is the difficulty of inserting the ads... In messages? On the front end interface?
I'm probably a couple of weeks away from being able to run any kind of long run outside--in part from recovery, but mostly from happily being blind-sided by the responsibilities of having a second child at home.
I'm glad I never thought about the implications of having a new baby in the house; the initial stress on the body is much like the first few miles I ran two years ago... except for the fact that the baby doesn't always stop crying within 30 minutes, and the fact that running does not involve much responsibility, etc...
2 miles in 18:19 @ 2% incline (9'10" pace)
11.27 miles in 30 minutes @ level 20 on StairMaster/Speed Intervals
4 miles. That's it--that's where the warm-up part ends and the running begins. Feels good to finally get past that point.

52 mile week at the end of July.
July was a 155 mile month.
Where can I go from here? Cardio isn't completely gone... I've been cross-training a decent amount...
Ok... that doesn't say much. 2-3x per week for 30-45 minutes each time for cross-training.
Flying Monkey is November 23rd.
