Once a Runner - now available

For fans of Once a Runner by John L Parker, you know that it was out of print for a long time and only available here and there via a used book seller. The wait is over. It is now available in hard cover in a new printing.

Here is the link to the Amazon page.

My book review of Once a Runner can be found here

5 miles, felt like 10

How is that?

I did this route a couple of weeks ago and felt great. Today, I did it but not easily.

Maybe biorhythms do have something to do with it. According to the calculations on a couple of web sites (here and here), they all agree that my physical rhythm is low but rising. Which would make sense.

The charts also showed that two weeks ago, it was much higher. Which also makes sense to have had the great run at that time.

Have you mapped your biorhythms to your runs? How do they work out? Does it make sense?
