Day 493-495 Greetings world

Breakthrough day.  I did a run that did not reach the level of excruciating pain today.  Hooray!  I'm hoping it was just an over use/strain type of thing.  There aren't really ligaments in that area to be strained, but who is counting?  

I actually spoke the words out loud "I want to go do a long run."  Sheer craziness.  Not being able to do one is making this like extended taper madness I suppose.  I don't want to lose all the endurance that came from such painstaking efforts.  Have to pull in the reins to avoid exacerbating injuries.  Ah the balancing act.  

Also, for some reason, I can not stop watching this....

And I am always rewarded.

Too bad my wedding-rap-in-progress is only 1/20th as cool as that.

Great news! Can't see the video on account of the firewall at work, but will check it out later. And it will take a bit of time and non-activity to lose all that conditioning, so don't sweat it.

Oh yeah, I love me some barbacoa! Right there with ya.

I'm pretty sure if I close my eyes and concentrate really hard, that commercial seems like something the Flight of the Conchords might come up with.... NICE.
