These last 7 days have been pretty rough on my running schedule. Usually, my days to run are tuesday, wednesday, thursday and saturday, with the longest run of the week on saturday, a 4 mile run on tue/thur and a 7 mile run on wednesday. Of course, last wednesday I was traveling down to new mexcio for the opening rounds of the NCAA tourney (my team won the first game, lost the 2nd). I ran tuesday of last week, but not wednesday, and I did thursdays run on friday. I missed saturdays run (which I had kind of expected to), then ran again this tuesday. Had a meeting run long last night , so it got dark before I could hit the pavement, but I’m looking to get back on the saddle tomorrow. Either way, it has been a rough week, but that will happen to anyone doing a 3 month training program – that’s why you just have to keep plowing through. Missing was bad for my momentum, but not so awful for my training that I cant recover and quit training. On to the links this week:
Kevin at thousandaire thinks that it’s time to legalize pot. Never having been a drug user myself, I do find his point of view interesting, and am honestly kind of shocked that the tentacles of the government havent gone after this revenue source.
Van Beek has a post on why to invest internationally. I think it’s important to be diversified when investing, and this is just another slice of the pie.
Suba at broke professionals has a post about simple work problems, and how to fix them. I think that just about everyone has dealt with this from time to time, and it’s a matter of being clear about what you want, and staying on task (Big for me).
