not slow down

Song of the week: "Savannah" by Relient K, off their album "Forget and not slow down". Here is a version recorded live.

This Relient K album nearly made my top five albums of 2010.

Plan A
Weather permitting, I shall pace tomorrow's 8:00pm 3000m at 1:58 per lap. Then carry on to 5000m and not slow down. If someone were trying to run around 23 minutes the challenge would be to catch them. Although, to run 23 minutes would involve picking up the pace from 4:55 per k to 4:07 per k. Challenge indeed.



  1. That Simon's Cat today just made me laugh out loud - loved it!

  2. Plan B: Stay home and watch TV?

  3. ... I only typed "Plan A" as a contrast with "Relient K". You could call it "Unrelient A".

  4. Plan B for bucketing if it's bucketing down. Someone hopes you catch him with one lap to go and run 22:59.9. Someone will be ahead in the first 3k and doing his usual trick of slowing down in the 4th kilometre.
