Reindeer Milk Popsicles

This past week went pretty well. I was able to put in 59 miles, including one faster eight mile run and a 16+ mile run. There is still the slightest hint of my lingering quad/hip injury, but stretching and warming up well are keeping it in check. In the next week or two, it will hopefully get over the hump and go away completely.

The weather here is starting to turn 'seasonal'. We had a nice 82 degree day on Friday, and another nice 70+ day on Saturday, but I think our Indian Summer has come to an end. This morning it is a crisp 30 degrees with a bit of wind. Mornings from now on will be cool and getting cold in the next month. After that, continuously cold, with morning temperatures registering the kind of cold you don't get used to. Lasse Viren trained in worse and didn't complain. Must have been the beard.

You've been reduced to actually stretching? Poor bastard. I'm glad to see the mileage total, and I'll be even happier when your old injury isn't even a blip on the radar screen.

Yeah, but Lasse Viren spent a lot of time in Brazil, too. He wrote a crazy Finnish version of the Thong Song back in 1974. Apparently, 150-180 mpw was harder on him than we thought.

Nice to see you running again. You'll have to pass the collection hat so that you can stay properly attired in Caribou loincloths this winter so you minimize your treadmill time.

I think I have that on 8-track. Rum made him crazy, the miles kept him sane.

Yes, I'll put in a PayPal button forthwith. All funds donated will go directly to loincloths. Sealskin loincloths. Harvested humanely from Naturally Departed Baby Seals (tm).

Hey, it's free money, so why not go pimp? Good to have to commenting again, Manuel. Can I call you Manny?

Sundog, the movie is called "Lasse Viren: Running is Your Life". Maybe you can find it on U-tube.
