mon 13 1:28 ran on the west warwick bike path and got into it with a group of obnoxious high school losers. here is a brief summary of the argument. a dumb kid said the highly original 'run forrest run'. i turned, switched to running backwards so i could argue with him, and said 'wow did you come up with that all on your own?' he said 'yeah'. how could he be too stupid to not notice my sarcasm? then i asked him 'did tyring to give me sh*t make you feel better about yourself?' he said 'yes', i said 'good, cuz your clearly stupid and need all the help you can get.' it took him a while to come up with a something to say, so i was about 100 feet away when he started yelling at me again. i couldnt make out the words so i said 'come up here and tell me that.' i couldnt hear his response except for one word, 'fag'. well, that train is never late, is it? i knew it was only a matter of time. i responded by telling him to 'come tell it to my face, you f**king pussy. you cant do what i can do cuz your a pussy." he kept yelling as i got further away, but he wouldnt come after me, even though i continued to call him a pussy. looks like i was right about him. after that, my sluggish legs came to life and i ran faster the rest of the way. thanks for the help, losers.
tues 10 on the trails, trying to stay away from the gunshots the whole time. still, more enjoyable than yesterdays experience. bullets kill, but at least they dont say dumb things.
weds 10 track workout 525 80/woods shitbreak 238 73 74 73 71 pleased with the 400s but not the longer stuff. had a bad night of sleep and didnt get up early enough to eat a good breakfast, which most likely is why i felt tired and not very strong. fun to workout with muddy, jonny, and jeff. they pushed me the whole time. they asked if i wanted to be on their running team, and i think itll be cool to be on a team that i can help, instead of one that ill never be better than the 20th man.
