Spaghetti, Sex, Sports! No its Adidas....(if it was redheads blog shed say cue monster mix of RUN DMC's MY ADIDAS!). What it means is that as all these barriers fall so does the reign of Nike over me. It has been in the works for a while. It used to be that if someone saw me running they would have thought it was a Nike commercial. However, lately the nike brand has slowly sold themselves out and since they do not have a hold what so ever in the endurance world....they are losing me. Yesterday, I walked through the Nike outlet and found nothin..zip.zilch. My wife though suggested we hit up the Adidas store and I was beside myself. They had the coolest stuff in there. Good thing there was a monster sale. Why have I limited myself this whole time? It is a sign of things to come. NO MORE ARBITRARY BOUNDRIES. Here is how the weekend went.
Originally I was supposed to have an out of town softball tournament this weekend but it turns out its next week. I spent all of last week and the early part of this week moving things around so I can have Friday and Saturday off. So what should I do? I planned on doing 30-40 miles of the silverman course but I didnt. 30-45 mph winds and 60-70% rain kept me in bed. Plus I thought I havent slept in in over a month and I have 11 miles on Sunday...may be ill just rest. AND SHOP.
Sunday-Long run. My last long run before the Disneyland Half marathon. I hyped it up inside as a challenge to see where my running fitness is at. FAIL. i wanted to run in the 1:40-1:42 range...NOPE. How about 1:55 range. Yup 10:28 per mile. A lot slower than I wanted to be. My sub 2:00 goal is serious peril. QUOTE:
