Week ending July 10, 2011

7/4 - Friends on the Forth 5K - 16:03, 1st. Scored some big points with the wife, and probably all wives in the greater Portsmouth area. (10 miles) Oh, and this is the women's winner.

7/5 - 6 miles AM, 10 miles PM

7/6 - 8 miles (hotter than tits on a bull)

7/7 - 6 miles AM, 8 miles PM

7/8 - 10 miles

7/9 - Harbour Trail "5K" (16:08, 1st) 4 miles warm up, 3 cool down. Course isn't certified, but I still feel like crap. I don't sandbag like JJ, so when I say I think I'm going to get my ass handed to me in Stowe next week, I mean it. (10 miles)

7/10 - 11 miles with Dan and Leslie

Summary: 79 miles. Still feeling flat. Going to rest up and hope for the best at the next couple of races.

Wilesthing being ripped off

Seriously...you would think America's best marathoner could come up with original material. Nope, he's hoping to become the same internet sensation that the Wilesthing is by copying my training videos. RIGHT DOWN TO THE SAME MUSIC.



I know I'm generally ahead of the curve, but this is just ridiculous. I'm not sure he hasn't violated some copyright laws somewhere in this little video.

Wilesthing = trend setter
