My brother-in-law, Dave, and I had a GREAT "man date" on Saturday night.
Here are 2 clues as to where we went:
First, we were WELL BELOW the average age while waiting in line outside the theatre:
Great fun watching Fred Newman (the "sound effects" guy) to the far left.
During his "Lake Wobegon" skit.
This is why Dave and I wore our red shoes... ;)
The 3 levels of the Fitzgerald Theatre with Garrison and Topsy Chapman singing
on stage as the show was winding down.
Then, on Sunday, Pharmie and I both got in a nice run. She went in the late-morning with a friend while I put Henry down for a nap. Then I went while he was still sleeping after Pharmie got back. I ran 8+ miles with the middle 3 as fartleks. I warmed up for 2 miles, and then I did 3:00 hard, 1:30 easy, 2 h, 1 e, 4 h, 2 e, 1 h, 0:30 e, and 5 h. (Basically 50% "easy" running time after the duration of "hard" running.) That took me just barely over 3 miles (in 6:25, 6:44, and 6:38). When I'm doing a bigger fartlek workout, I'll do 2 rounds of those.
I didn't run them SUPER hard because I think I'm heading to the Metrodome tomorrow night for some intervals, and I didn't want to kill my legs. We'll see what the Dome holds for me tomorrow night... I haven't been there for intervals in a year! It could be ugly....
