Consistent run.

11 PM

Bike 1:00:00 [2] 26.55 mi (2:16 / mi)

A chill bike ride which started at 12:15AM, but I am still consigning it to 9/3.

On the recumbent and the mileage is fishy.

Weight training 7:00 [3]

Arms, pushups, and situps.
8 PM

Run 1:00:00 intensity: (52:00 @2) + (4:00 @3) + (4:00 @4)
shoes: Reebok Bobby Curtis

Level 8 hills. Back up to my baseline speed from last year, and last 8 at 8. Also, accelerate for last 4, to 10.5.

1,008 calories. There could be some hope for the fall yet. Still, not likely to be fast, but will be able to negotiate hills.

The key thing, of course, is to be able to maintain a sufficient level of training. And that requires fighting the man and keeping my ankle intact.

Weight training 5:00 [3]

pushups, situps.
7 PM

Run 1:00:00 intensity: (50:00 @2) + (6:00 @3) + (4:00 @4)
shoes: Reebok Bobby Curtis

Level 8 hills. Faster for the last 10.

Weight training 10:00 [3]

Arms, pushups, and situps. Several hundred less than Tom normally does.


During my rather mellow ride, I looked at my HBR. I'm not really a fan. Either it is drivel or way over my head. I haven't been able to figure out which over the past year.

Anyway, one of the best articles I can recall. "Timberland's CEO on Standing up to 65,000 Angry Activists."

Good on so many levels. First, it indicates one (or many) reasons I'm not CEO material (or as Dasha points out, lawyer material.) When someone gets in my face, so to speak, on many occasions, I want to destroy them. In other words, I have the wrong temperament. Maybe Jeff Swartz had the same notions--who can tell, because he obviously couldn't write it if he did--but he did correctly feel under attack.

The response, and the crisis management anecdotes conveyed are great. It had some elements (obliquely) of Sun Tzu.

And it also offered a plausible interpretation of the "enemy's" motivations. While I am not a fan of Greenpeace, I am not opposed (on a certain level) to their aims in this case. I'll need to figure out how to reconcile all this...


Enjoying a Duvel. Thinking about a moratorium on AP.
10 PM

Bike 1:00:00 [2] 20.02 mi (3:00 / mi)

Level 8 hills.

Enjoyed The Fame Monster during most of the ride. What a great album. Not remotely original, but pop feeds on itself.

Run 1:00:00 [2]
shoes: Saucony Progrid Ride 11/9/2009

Easy run.

Run warm up/down 4:00 [1]

Weight training 4:00 [2]

Some pushups/situps.
7 PM

Run 1:26:00 intensity: (45:00 @2) + (21:00 @3) + (20:00 @4) 11.43 mi (7:31 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Progrid Ride 11/9/2009

I managed to get out and back on this run with less than 15 seconds total delay at crossings. Pretty remarkable. So, my time is what it is.

I didn't really have it today, and just wanted to cruise. It started getting dark at the turnaround, which was just as well. But, at the Harvard boathouse there was a dude that passed me, and after watching him for a bit, had to get him back. I did vanquish him but the next guy that challenged me at around Mass Ave I could not defeat.

The return trip was 41. Out was 45.
