Post-run Friday Random Ten

Tomorrow is the peak of the Chicago Marathon training season: a 20 mile run. After tomorrow, it's three weeks of tapering off to race day on October 7. After the 14 miler last week I developed a wicked sore muscle in my left calf, almost a charlie horse feeling. I've iced, stretched (obviously not enough or it wouldn't have gotten that sore in the first place) and poor MizBubs has worked her talented little fingers to the bone trying to massage the knots out of it, but it still nags. We'll see how it goes.

I did a brisk three miles when I got home from work tonight to try and work it out a little. I should have run 20 miles this week, but I've only run 8.

Anyway, I fired up the iTunes and here's what came up:

Blue Moon of Kentucky—Elvis Presley

I'll Be Your Mirror—The Velvet Underground

She-Wolf—Jessie Mae Hemphill

Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart—Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds

It Can't Happen Here—Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention

Ace of Spades—Link Wray

Hiccups—The Empallos

99 Chicks—Ron Haydock and the Boppers

Cousin Family—Lord Invader

Waiting At The End Of The Road—Fats Waller

Here's hoping y'all have a good weekend.

20 miles? Ouch! I'm still aching from switching to a 5:30am session. That's going to take some getting used to.

Run Bubsy run! I know you can do it!

I bow down to your commitment. I could hike from dawn til dusk, but if I had to run a mile I think I'd nearly die.

"Only" eight miles? That's eight miles further than I ran this week.

I bet you had a great weekend if this was your send-off. What a fantastic set!
