The length of this weekend’s long run is up in the air. Because of my 10K race last weekend, I didn’t get in the suggested 8.5 mile run. This week’s LSD is supposed to be 10 miles. Do I act prudently and just run the 8.5 or try my luck at the full ten? I guess I’ll see how my legs are feeling tomorrow morning.
Speaking of the 10K, during the race I saw two guys in military fatigues and boots running the race with gigantic military packs strapped to their backs. All I could think was holy hell. The last time I had to carry a pack that size, I was backpacking around
Throughout those weeks though, I never had to actually run with the pack on, except for twenty or so meters to catch a train or something. Hell, running with just a CamelBak is apparently uncomfortable sometimes, I can’t imagine what it was like for those two military guys. It gives me a whole new respect for people who even attempt boot camp.

Bet you never thought you’d see Sean Connery in an S&M get-up, huh?
Buon weekend, tutti.
