Scene From Princess Bride as told by Planet3rry as the role of Inigo Montoya and Life in General as Count Rugen

I know that Monday April 13th existed, but I don’t really remember much about it. I was only really coherent for about the last 1 hour of work and from there it was basically just going home for Date Night. And while Date Night did include us being in bed, we were totally asleep. There was no dinner… there was no movie, there was nothing. Next thing I knew it was 5am on Tuesday and I was ready to look at the finances.

So, I am scratching my head wondering what I am going to do and now I have more stuff to do today, that I should have done yesterday and I have to plack it in today… which is filling up fast!

Over the weekend, I did not run at all. I had wanted to make last week, the last tough week of training before I started tapering here in the next few days. Now, I have to cram an extra long run in here somewhere and make do. I think what I will do is something that I did LAST year, but I have forgotten about until now… the 2-Fer! That’s right. I think today, I will do a 5 mile at lunch and then a 10 miler after work. I need the extra time tonight with the many errands I have to run, but I HAVE to get the mileage in! I realized that today that I probably have not trained properly to shoot for a sub-4hr marathon given my training to date. I should look back and see what I have run (hence the need for the Trusty Rusty Running Log) and perhaps a sub 4 isn’t really in the cards (unless the planets are aligned and Mercury isn’t in Retrograde) but a PR might be something that I could touch (take that MC Hammer)… 4:06 or so.

AND… there is a NEW episode of Gravity@1053′ just about finished! I PROMISE! I am starting to catch back up on podcasts, but still way back in last year and I have the compulsion to listen to each one, in order, just ANOTHER reason for some long runs. Also, look for a new feature on Planet3rry.com! I am going to roll that out in the next couple of days or maybe hours… let’s see how motivated I can be.

Inigo Montoya Planet3rry: Is very strange. I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it’s over, I don’t know what to do with the rest of my life.
Westley: Have you ever considered piracy? You’d make a wonderful Dread Pirate Roberts.
