I was a little unmotivated today; the long day at work not helping matters. For extra motivation I decided to wear my flats for my usual 8K+ route. I usually save this particular pair for the track, and I thought it might help put me in the mood for some faster running. I was to do the last 4K+ at 3:40/k pace. I only measured the last k, and it came in at 3:47. I did the back portion in 15:57 tonight, compared to 15:52 a week ago.
Link 'o the day:
This is the 2005 PBS documentary, "The Persuaders". A fairly interesting look at marketing, advertising, and its influence on American (yes, Canadian too) culture.
