The quote is from my favorite comic series ever: The Maxx, by Sam Kieth.
Uh, well. Adapted, I mean. Swap "writer" with "runner" and you have the real quote.

I've logged 54 miles so far this month.

Feel somewhat more rested today. I didn't make the full 4 miles and pile of hill intervals yesterday. Rather, I made it two miles, got tired but convinced myself to do at least one more interval which turned into three more intervals for a 2.58 mile run up and down the hills by my house.

So, it was a mental win - sort of.

My body didn't much care for all that strenuous effort but, in retrospect, I feel very good about it. I'm starting to see the appeal of this sort of punishment. Subsequently, I'm setting a mental goal of being able to sprint the up hill run from the corner of the lowest street to the water tower on that hill in less than 4 minutes.

It's half a mile at about 4% grade. I'll probably sneak in intervals on it occasionally during the next two months before my race after short runs when I've recovered. At the least, it'll built strength and (I think) anaerobic capacity.

It'll hardly hurt anything

Well... not in the performance area, I mean.

TGIF, people. TGIF. Market tomorrow and brunch with labelle77 which is nifty.

See? I do other non-running related stuff. Did I turn all of you off my blog with this sudden change in focus? It's been dead lately.

Watching the video of The Maxx together helped me fall in love with Erik. True story.

Aw. :) Nothing breeds love like purple underwear.

I loved the Liquid Television cartoons. I wish I could find a DVD of them somewhere of The Maxx and pretty much everything on that show.

Yeah, we have The Maxx on VHS and will probably keep it even though we can no longer play it. :)

I watched all of The Maxx on youtube. Dunno if it's still up there, but it was a year ago. And free!

Any time I make a dramatic shift in my blog and its contents, I get no comments. It's par for the course. Just wait until people are used to it and your focus turns away from running - they'll want those entries back! ;)

I'll start posting ASCII art every day. That'll teach 'em.

I hate running, so I just don't have much to say on it, other than expounding on my laziness.
