Yesterday was an unplanned rest day. I am wholly disappointed in myself, but the only course is to get up and try again. The path to victory begins with discipline.

Typing Test Results: (wpm, keystrokes, rank/total in past 24 hours)
147, 733, 33/74684
142; 709; 60/74717
139; 693; 87/74716

A one minute typing test is like a 400m. Perhaps I should build up my base before doing intervals lest I invite a hand injury.

Running 39:00 [1] 7.3 km (5:21 / km)
shoes: 201108 Asics GT-2150

Easy run around the river. My body seems to be less destroyed than it appeared earlier this week - possibly restored by two accidental rest days. I think the neighborhood of 5:20-5:30/km is a great pace for me to be right now. Whatever is tweaked in my bum was more cooperative, though I still don't have full strength and control throughout the range of motion of my leg. It feels like a smallish muscle is hurt - perhaps a strain; it doesn't hurt while I run, but I sense weakness.

It's a busy time for me right now with NEOC logistics; I'm further behind than I planned to be, but I'm trying to delegate and recruit help. I decided to direct the race at Menotomy Rocks in 9 days because it was a bit impromptu; two sprints on a Saturday morning will be about the same amount of work as a Park-O on a more convenient day. Still, I don't plan to direct more than one meet this fall besides the sprint - and if I can get away with it, I won't set any. While I hope to thoroughly use all communication avenues, I want help - if you're interested in directing, co-directing, or volunteering at registration, control pickup, or results, please let me know! Every bit helps a bunch.
