Nine mile progression run on the track at the Oval. Started out very slow and then progressed to slow by the end of the run.

Easy mental health run in the afternoon. Tried to focus my thoughts on some goals and plans for the upcoming year. Decided that I would start training for something tomorrow morning.

AM: Best Buy loop. Awesome!

PM: 6.5 treadmill miles with a couple up tempo miles. After that, I went to Abby's swim practice and watched her for a while. When we god home, Ann had a huge pot of chili ready which was great because I was starved after my first double in a few decades. So I had chili and a cold Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for dinner.

You know who else likes chili and beer? Quenton Cassidy.

Speaking of that, I'm going to try and get in touch with Mr. Parker and try to convince him to write another book. I want him to bring Quenton into the present struggling with advancing age and decrepitude.

Ran the SLTC 10K today and forgot to bring money to the race to register so I had to bandit.

Decided to take advantage of the nice tailwind going out to see if I could run the first 5k faster than I did two weeks ago. Then I jogged back to the finish.

Enjoyed a cup of coffee with Steve Ashbaker after while we talked about training, racing, and getting old.

I finished Seth Davis's big new biography of UCLA basketball coach John Wooden today. I've been a Wooden fan since I was a kid. It was a very compelling read. Wooden was born in 1910 and died in 2010 just a few mnths shy of 100 so the story included the sweep of an entire century. I reccomend it to anyone interested in basketball, coaching, or leadership.
