As for my training, it was a little wonky last week. Since I had Monday off, I jammed in one of my loooooong runs - I set my record of 22 miles. I'd done 20 before and really didn't think another two would be a big deal. I was wrong. I mean, I didn't die or anything, but I mostly walked them. Up to 20? Still feeling pretty strong. After 20? Not so much. Therefore I think I'll make my next looooong run another 20-miler and then give 22 another shot.
I have a musical selection this week! I'm not against but not a particular fan of The Lonely Island of "I'm On A Boat" fame, but Elizabeth has introduced me to a song of theirs called "Lazy Sunday" which features a chorus that goes like this: "It's the Chronic-WHAT?-cles of NARNIA!" And as a lifelong Narnian, I am honor-bound to play it every hour on the hour for the rest of my life. It's deeper magic from before the dawn of time, you know.
