Wanna see my splits?



It's been so long since I was injured, it feels like I have nothing to write about. You know runners like to talk about injuries? But what if they are ok? .....

In summary, I am running at my best EVER. Why? I think a recent article made sense. ttp://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203550604574358764211082766.html

It is about Kara Goucher and my take on it is to balance out all the programmed stuff and just have a go on how you feel and give it a bit of grunt.

Hope you all enjoy your own grunting and have dodged the dreaded flu going around.

nice splits!

I agree that there comes a point when describing ones training gets kind of ho-hum unless you are a real comedian. Congratulations on having a good run of things, so to speak.

Great to be running without any major niggles. Your mate Pat Carroll once told me: if you can simlpy run consistently for a decent period of time then you will see improvements.

I think that the more we are running the wiser we get and stronger all the bits, that get injured, get. So it is only after a sort of "trial period" that any real progress is seen.

That is why I reckon you and I have our best races in front of us.

All the best Toasty.

Damn fine splits there Toasty! Your flexibility has improved of late.

That was a good article. Kara makes a good point when she says: "it's just sometimes we get obsessed with time. You can't win a race like that."

Not that we're ever trying to win a marathon (unless your name is Scott Brown).

Good luck with the next big thing, and also with staying uninjured!

Your running sure has improved tremendously Toasty. It sure makes a difference to run injury free. I hope you are able to stay that way with the help of your new strategy.

I enjoyed the article. You would really enjoy a book by Christohper McDougall titled Born to Run. It is one of the best books I have ever read and I have read a truck load of books.

We should be painstaking and discriminating in all the intelligence we give. We should be signally careful in giving advice that we would not about of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to refrain from giving recommendation which we don't imitate when it damages those who woo assume us at our word.

To be a adroit benign being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an gift to group uncertain things beyond your own pilot, that can lead you to be shattered in uncommonly exceptionally circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something remarkably weighty relating to the condition of the ethical life: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a prize, something kind of dainty, but whose extremely special attraction is inseparable from that fragility.
