The ace of base

Remember that terrible band? Oh, to have been born in 1993 and missed all those horrible late 80s/early 90s bands. But then your musical experience would have *started* with Christina Aguilera. Which is worse?

Anyhoo. This post isn’t about sub-standard pop bands from Sweden.

One note: “Iron Man” was a lot of fun. I haven’t enjoyed a superhero movie this much since “Batman Begins.” Good story (although the ending was a little lame), great script and an outstanding performance by Robert Downey, Jr. I could even stomach Gwyneth Paltrow, which is saying a lot. Unfortunately, you don’t actually get to hear Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” track in Dolby Surround Sound. Big disappointment! I’m resigned to pumping it out of my feeble 100 watt receiver and annoying the neighbors with it right here at home.

No, aside from the digressions, this a proper running post: an introduction to my new series of training posts to track my basebuilding for the fall marathon.

I officially started my basebuilding period two weeks ago, although that first week was a little screwed up since I spent three days traveling and couldn’t run as much as I wanted to. I compensated for a lack of quantity with some quality, running a lot more of the miles at easy (rather than slower recovery) pace. I only managed 49 miles that week, but that was o-kay.

Next up, post number one on basebuilding.

Are you excited?

I am.
