Went out for 9 easy miles this morning. My legs are feeling less beat-up every day, but they're still not fresh. I spent the run lamenting the days 5 or 6 weeks ago when I just couldn't stop myself going sub-8 on easy days. Today, when I pushed into the first circle of discomfort, the pace would be something like 8:13. Ach. I should stop lamenting, I guess.
Watched part of Garden State today (the stock market's closed, so it's a day off from work for me). After about an hour I got up to check email and never went back. There was a time I would have maybe liked it more - hell, there was that whole year about 10 years ago I spent chasing after a deep-but-not-really guy that very much resembled the protagonist - but it just left me cold. Too precious, too self-conscious. I found myself thinking, this guy's trying to be Hal Hartley, this other guy is trying to be young Bill Murray. And the movie appropriated a song I really like ("The Only Living Boy In New York") for its soundtrack. Maybe I'm finally too old for something.
I have a job interview tomorrow, and another either later this week or early next week. I figure I may as well keep trying.
I really, really, really wish that Emily LeVan would keep a blog.
Not sure if it's the incresed mileage or something else, but I just want to eat all the damn time.
