4th Run

I went for my 4th run today. I just need to keep doing the leg curls. I am also studying openings in chess now. I have completed reading Blink and now want to go to Outliers or Kuhn.
My sweetheart will be resuming her studies soon meaning I can start doing some interesting activity in the evenings, like playing chess.
Here is Anderson Silva, the best middleweight in the world. He makes some of the best look like they dont know WTF they are doing in the cage. He ownded Forrest Griffin then punched Demian Maia's eyes shut and left his nose leaking like a hole at the bottom of a barrel.

3rd Run

Did my 3rd run today. Longer distance but too short to even discuss.
Meanwhile, Patrick Ivuti is preparing to defend his Prague Marathon title on 9th May.

Ran again

I went further today. Its lovely. I am still feeling out the dawn air, my feet, the road and my body.

Started Running Today

Was up at 5:20. Did a short run. Didnt even break to sweat.
Whats important at this point is that I showed up. I want to make that a habit then we can start talking time and distance.
I should watch this movie even though the reviews have been harsh.

Kebede takes London

Kebede won the 2010 london Marathon in 2:05:19. With Emmanuel Mutai comin second, Gharib third and Abel Kirui 5th. Tadese came 7th. Wanjiru and Duncan Kibet dropped out.

Stretching Complete

I have stretched for the last 5 days and I can now start running next week. I targeted my hamstrings and compartment muscles which I rely on to protect my knee. I also worked on my abs, back and waist.
I have added a new site called the basement tapes to my list of fav sites. I like the content, the angle and the presentation of the material the guy has on his site.
Meanwhile, Wanjiru, Abel Kirui, Duncan Kibet and Tadese have arrived in London. I cant wait.
Here is myself, my lovely wife (on my left) and a friend.

Cheruiyot Sets Boston Record

Kenyan Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot ran 2:05:52 to demolish the course record at the venerable B.A.A. Boston Marathon in that event's 114th running on Monday (19). Cheruiyot took a staggering minute and twenty-two seconds off the previous record of 2:07:14 set by Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot (no relation) in 2006.
Amazing shit.
I have no words. It means one can even set a world record on a hilly course like Boston.
Amazing shit.
Hall and Meb took 45th and 5th respectively while Kebede and Merga replayed the 2008 olympics debacle with Merga fading at the last Km and Kebede cruising past him to take second place. I am looking for the video.
Meanwhile, Wanjiru, Kirui and others are stuck in Nairobi due to flights to Europe being grounded. They are to travel to London and demolish the course record and possibly the world record.
 I am still stretching.

Ryan Hall (USA) leads the pack near the one-mile marker. He finished fourth with a time of 2:08:41, the fastest ever for a U.S. runner at the Boston Marathon. (Greg M. Cooper/ US Presswire)

I am Back

I started with stretching today. I am enjoying and settling in in my married life. I have added so much weight and I want to lose it as I progressively get back. I want to spend this week stretching and waking the muscles up then next week I start with short distances.
Today is the Boston Marathon and next week we have the London Marathon and I would like to watch how Abel Kirui and Wanjiru tackle the latter and how Merga handles the anticipated American onslaught in Boston.
UFC 113 is scheduled to take place on May 8th and features the biggest rematch of the year. I cant wait.
Mealnwhile, Mohammed King Mo Lawal is the new Stikeforce light-Heavyweight champion after beating Gerard Mousasi.
