AM - 3. you don't get to my kind of mileage without gaining an uncanny ability to know what pains to run through and when to cut a run early, I felt the latter in my right calf on the third run yesterday. I wouldn't even go as far to classify it as pain and I felt it on maybe 4 steps on the entire 3 miles, but I could tell it probably wasn't something that'd fade as the run went on so I stopped 2 miles short. didn't feel it this AM, but thought it over and decided on a couple of things:

1.) today should be an off day, which by my standards means a morning and evening shakeout. while the calf pain is gone I think the legs could use a little recharging, and after 45 mile days I'm thinking my recovery time should be crazy good right now so hopefully a day should be enough.

2.) my original plan was over 4 weeks to go 200, 225, 255, and 300 weekly miles. got the first week done, and for the most part felt pretty good at 200 so I think if I started doing the little things(diet, supplements, etc) that number could be something I could stay at. I'll probably start implementing workouts after finals and upper body lifting either then or the start of the next semester. I believe 300 is a number I could reach, just not until I can sustain 200 a week. maybe spring break 2020. mainly mentioning this so everyone can understand that i'm such a potent mix of narcissism and confidence that I believed without a doubt I could run a 300-mile week before I'd even ran 200. so I can't say I'm gerry lindgren-level yet, but I can say I'm better than cam levins

3.) I might not be the first blogger to hit a 200-mile week but at 21 I'd wager I'm the youngest

4.) 2020 I'll be returning to racing(track) after over 3 years of a hiatus and it's gonna be one hell of a revenge tour. so I hope these next few months are fun to read :)

also while I'm making a longass post on my 10 miles on Sunday I thought out my top 10 rappers list, being a huge fan of hip-hop since I could disappoint my mom by listening to eminem, so here's the list with a song of theirs I'd recommend(in no order(except andre being #1):

Andre 3000 - Aquemini, as Outkast(that last verse blows my mind every time)

Biggie - Suicidal Thoughts

Big L - Devil's Son(most underrated rapper ever imo)

Pac - When I Get Free II

Nas - One Love

Ghostface Killah - Mighty Healthy

MF DOOM - All Caps, as Madvillian

Q-Tip - Excursions, as A Tribe Called Quest

Jay-Z - D'evils

Kendrick - Sing About Me, I'm Dying Of Thirst

Honorable mention to Kanye, Scarface, Em and Ice Cube

I vote for honorable mention, Busta Rhymes, When Disaster Strikes... if you're going to go 90s rap like that.

i’m convinced he has the remote from that adam sandler movie “click” and puts the world on half-speed every time he records a verse lol

The really embarrassing part is how long it took me to figure out his name stood for "bust a rhyme."

Flo Rida took me even longer to figure out, (he's from Florida... so he's a Flo Rida...)

what’s your go-to pre-run hype song? for me it’s probably a tie between mama said knock you out by LL cool J or brooklyn zoo by ol dirty bastard. during the 200 mile week the rocky theme song got me through the whole “i already ran 30 miles why am i doing another 15” mindset though.

Definitely Timmy Trumpet & Savage "freaks"
