Said Tie Returneth

After much fan fair, the Bigun's tie has been returned to it's rightful owner. Surprisingly, Jr has come through as agreed to in prior negotiations, and the exchange took place at 9am. The siege is over - no one was injured in the process. Call off Mrs. Bigun - put your weapons on "safe".

I say "exchange" - actually we are experiencing a snafu in the process. Jr wants his tie back cleaned and pressed - have you ever? Never! "Ugly" will remain here, in my office, until such time as either it is removed by it's owner or it just gets lost somehow. There's a very good chance that some harm may come to this tie - I'm not saying what or when, it's just, well, you know, things happen...

You need to be running 35-45 miles a week. Once you have your run in order, the rest of your times will benefit from the increase in stamina and the loss of weight. For an endurance athlete, the long run is the most important workout of the week. It teaches your body to burn fat, builds muscles, adds blood capillaries to increase circulation and boosts confidence. Studies have also shown it increases mitochondria, the work-horses of the cells. The long run should last 1 1\2 hours and up and increase no more than 10% or 15 minutes per week. Beginners will need to build up to this slowly but the rewards will be great. This is the workout that makes you an endurance athlete and a triathlete is an endurance specialist. The best pace for the long run is one or two minutes slower per mile than your marathon pace. If you don't know what that is, then don't run any faster than you could run while carrying on a normal conversation. Beginners should only do one long run every two weeks. Seasoned veterans long runs shouldn't exceed 3 hours. Get to it.

That would be great - 35 - 45 miles per week - 6 miles every day on average - now I just have to get my 15 year old ACL repair to stop screaming at me and my 245lb body to quit pounding my knees and ankles and I'll be able to do that. As I build my running mileage ability (slowly) and get used to 20 - 30 miles per week, I'll bike and swim as much as I can, to keep from getting injured. My bike is nice to me - it doesn't care how much I weigh. But thanks for the advice!
