Hail my running brothers and sisters! Week 10 of marathon training is at an end. This week I ran 32.9 miles at an average of 8:37/mi. I turned in 2:20 hrs of cross-training of golf and weights. My weight came in at 162.2 lbs. Not too bad overall. The highlight of the week was my long run. My training schedule called for a 20 mi run at an easy pace. I was feeling pretty good yesterday, so today I opted for a long run at marathon pace for as long as I could. Turns out that distance was 16 miles. After that I cooled down with a sloooooow (walking slow) 3 miles. I was glad to get that 16 miles out of the way. The pace felt easy and I didn't have any physical problems until mile 15.5, when I felt twinges of a cramp come on. Tonight, I'm tired and my muscles are tight, but otherwise, I feel pretty good. Next week I'll probably try to post that 20 miler.
Geek love: I'm still digging my Droid X. I've transcoded a DVD and it looks AWESOME on my phone! I still haven't named it though. The name should be smart and sexy much like my phone. I got Spartacus: Blood and Sand this weekend. From what little I've seen, it reminds me a lot of 300 cinematically at least. That's it for now. Later kids!
P.S. Today is my dad's birthday. Happy Birthday, Dad!
