Playoffs! You want to talk about Playoffs!!!
If I was not laughing right now I would be crying. This entry should have been posted before the Patriots 60 minute Suck-Fest against the steelers and it would have been in a much nicer tone. Did we ever blow it out our butt today with the 5 turnovers and I don't even know how many drops. It was truly tough to watch. Maybe next year with a healthy Brady we will make the playoffs but after tonight it doesn't look like anything other than a major overhaul of the defense will help our cause. The good news is next week we have the Seahawks and they stink as bad as we do.
On to running related news, today was a nice little cartpath/fairway race. The Andover Striders 6kish Cross Counrty race at Andover Country Club. I always enjoyed this race and figured why not head up and give it a go again. Good race today with Double J out there on the course on a cold crisp day. I was a little surprised at first at how my legs responded at the start because I thought they would be slow in responding to any sort of race pace but they actually wanted to run faster. I felt great on the up hills but sluggish and slow on the flats and downhills. Not quite sure what to make of that as of yet but it must be because of the workouts I have been doing which have involved a lot of strength and no speed at all. I will start working on that pronto. Well, maybe not, but I will think about working on it. I think I could have pushed the pace a little more in the middle section but I think my knowledge of the last hill through the townhouses slowed my roll. Good race to everyone out there, especially the over 30 crowd who dominated the top 10. Geezers Unite!!!
I am the speck in blue shorts.
I am now in the no mans land of my schedule. Nothing really on the agenda until February but I don't want to shut it off either. Just going to maintain for a while and then start a another build up. Things would be so much better if I was going to club nationals, but alas, it was not be this year.
That's all I got.
