It's Not Rocket Science: Week 35

Still here and still kickin'! About 14 job applications, a couple of phone calls, and that's about it. Admittedly, not a great week. Some weeks are easier and some are more depressing. Next subject please.

I ran 102 miles with a 7k fartlek and 7k tempo. That counts as a good week. My rolling week Thursday was at 111 miles and that was more than I wanted so I took it easy the last two days. I really like getting into the triple digits for mileage after that it's about doing more quality and less volume. That's what works for me. Mentally I feel good about myself when I see that 1XX in my running log. Physiologically speaking it is far more valuable to run a few miles faster than a lot of miles slower when the goal is racing fast.

The unemployment figures came out this week, unemployment is up from 9.6% to 9.8%. Awesome.

  1. On the other hand, unemployment is over 18% in Spain, so it could be worse...

  2. Oh I totally agree, however bad I may make it out to be for me, I am definitely near the top of the jobless heap. As bad as the economy may be in the US it's still way more stable and prosperous than most of the rest of the world.
