It’s time for a special Mr. Squirrel tribute to Billy Smith and the BSB.
While you’re at it, check out this old school video of Billy too…classic Billy stuff.
Today it came to about 6 times around the track today at a very slow pace. Probably about 1.7 miles total including the walk back to the apartment. I find it hard to believe that I could be any slower than yesterday, but there you have it. Apparently, yes I can. Now, I really should quit harping on my lack of speed. Let’s put this in perspective, shall we?
Let’s see, I had to take last year off due to a nasty ‘ol plantar faciitis injury and the year before that when I was in Shandong, I injured my knee and by the time I recovered it was too cold to run and then when the weather broke in the spring, Fukashima was raging across the Bohia/Yellow sea.
Hmmmmm…I guess that kind of puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?
All the experts say that I should rest or cross train on alternate days, but I just couldn’t stand the thought of sitting on my duff another day without getting out there this morning. I’ve already trained myself to wake up around 5-6 AM, so now I really have no excuse. Worst case scenario – if I don’t feel up to running then I can always walk a few laps around the track and call it a day. With the understanding that I can always come back the next day.
So in reality, I guess it really is time to celebrate and get funky with Mr. Squirrel’s toe tapping harmonica blues.
