Dave has built up the Looptionary (see link at top) to help us remember and newbies learn our lingo. If you haven't noticed, bloops and comments will have underlined words which you can hover your mouse over and see the meaning. The challenge now is to see how many of those you can fit in, preferably misused. Or possibly see if you can avoid use of any of them in one bloop.
So my company's name is BIB and our HRM department can Junk Miles of paperwork assigning DNS settings, encouraging LSD Minimalism, and designating half the parking lot to Pick-ups. Yesterday, I biked across the RR tracks to the Bank and Bonk went my head after Hitting the Wall. Then I saw my friend Cody Abby* who is an RB for the local college football team.
I was registered for a half-marathon last year, but deferred due to PF. I figured I would have to pester the Race Director to get registered. A few weeks back I checked the participant list and did not see my name and decided not to worry about it. Last Friday, an email advertising the race reminded me to check the list again. And I found my name, age and town listed. More than a coincidence.
I feel like I'm having a pop quiz. I've been in class, doing the assignments, but can't say I've really studied specifically for this test.
Last Sunday's assignment was given to me by RB Tim who is training for the Phoenix RnR marathon. He wanted 18 miles with 10 at MP/GMP/MGP. He hoped for a 7:10 pace on those. After a 6 mile loop warmup and quick water stop, we picked a mostly flat out and back, though it was more downhill on the way out. It was a challenging workout, but we got the 10 done with an average of 7:04. That gave me a bit of confidence that I could run a decent half.
I have mostly taken it easy this week with just some strides at the track. I'll run pick-ups on the ~100m straights and recover on the curves. I like a middle or outside lane for these to give a slightly longer recovery curve. All other miles have been junk miles.
*Dave may change Cody to Code even though it sounds cuter.
