Ennui sets in. Almost eight weeks to go, feeling not just tired but disinterested. I am sure this is a direct result of post-opening night let-down. Yay, I did something big ... now what?
Well. Train for a freaking marathon, I guess.
Distance: 12 miles
Route: Neighborhood loop 2x
And then we run, and I feel much, much better. Next week, according to my schedule, I am supposed to run 20 miles. The first of three twenty-mile runs prior to the event. This is a good idea, for my last training session, six years ago, I ran one 20-miler and it was like summiting Everest to me. Last week I ran 18 miles, and thought, eh. Hurt a little for a day. Not much. Still got on with life just fine.
So, the question is, I guess, do I depart before dawn and try and reach my parents' house by breakfast? Got a week to figure that out.

Furioso (167 BPM)
Mustapha Dance * - The Clash (128 BPM)
Overground (165 BPM)
* Just a note, including a down-beat songs in the midst of long, bpm-orietned playlists doesn't really do anything for me.
