..that where we before just saw a gutter, we will now try to see small rivers,
39 My hair should be parted not spiked and green
My nights should end at 10 and not 6 am
But it is and they don’t
I still get excited when the Adolescents play
Wake up not knowing what I did last night
Finding out and thinking that was cool and not sad
I might be an adult but I’m still a minor at heart
OK my liver is my senior part
But that’s a part you can trade in
When your band has been a band longer than the Ramones
And critics coin you “the punk Rolling Stones”
That’s when you know this is for life
Running is intensely psychological. It’s psychological because you JUST DO IT. « hope I don’t get sued for that.
You run and lots of people won’t understand it. It’s easy but it’s hard. If you want to run well, and you want to run fast you need to take it seriously. You do that by taking control of your training and convincing yourself that you’re getting better — and that you MUST get better.
The Tempo is a critical part of the Kenyan running diet. Here’s why the Tempo Works…
Tempo running improves a crucial physiological variable for running success: our metabolic fitness. “Most runners have trained their cardiovascular system to deliver oxygen to the muscles,” says exercise scientist Bill Pierce, chair of the health and exercise science department at Furman University in South Carolina, “but they haven’t trained their bodies to use that oxygen once it arrives. Tempo runs do just that by teaching the body to use oxygen for metabolism more efficiently.”
How? By increasing your lactate threshold (LT), or the point at which the body fatigues at a certain pace. During tempo runs, lactate and hydrogen ions—by-products of metabolism—are released into the muscles, says 2:46 marathoner Carwyn Sharp, Ph.D., an exercise scientist who works with NASA. The ions make the muscles acidic, eventually leading to fatigue. The better trained you become, the higher you push your “threshold,” meaning your muscles become better at using these byproducts. The result is less-acidic muscles (that is, muscles that haven’t reached their new “threshold”), so they keep on contracting, letting you run farther and faster.

.. Keep looking and keep improving. It WILL get better.
- Abandon the idea that you are ever going to finish. Lose track of the 400 pages and write just one page for each day, it helps. Then when it gets finished, you are always surprised.
- Write freely and as rapidly as possible and throw the whole thing on paper. Never correct or rewrite until the whole thing is down. Rewrite in process is usually found to be an excuse for not going on. It also interferes with flow and rhythm which can only come from a kind of unconscious association with the material.
- Forget your generalized audience. In the first place, the nameless, faceless audience will scare you to death and in the second place, unlike the theater, it doesn’t exist. In writing, your audience is one single reader. I have found that sometimes it helps to pick out one person—a real person you know, or an imagined person and write to that one.
- If a scene or a section gets the better of you and you still think you want it—bypass it and go on. When you have finished the whole you can come back to it and then you may find that the reason it gave trouble is because it didn’t belong there.
- Beware of a scene that becomes too dear to you, dearer than the rest. It will usually be found that it is out of drawing.
- If you are using dialogue—say it aloud as you write it. Only then will it have the sound of speech.
