plan: 400 800 2x1600 800 400 abs
I did: 800 2x1600 800 400 abs 400
Woke up late at 5:40 without my alarm because its sound was fully muted, so I warmed up on the jog to the track, and missed the first 400 for a pit stop. Made up for it afterwards.
Also it was a much colder than expected morning. Like hurt your lungs cold when you inhale too deep. They didn’t feel warmed up until after the second 1600.
Still, made good times according to Nike+ Running so I’ll take it.
Another solid track workout in the books. I’m counting this as having done the whole thing even though I swapped the first 400 to after abs.
You think you’re ok, at peace, and then a memory hits you.
Last time you drove through Vegas, stopping in artificially glowing darkness only for fuel, Starbucks, and to switch drivers to finish the last leg of a half-cross-country-road-trip before midnight.
You honestly thought, and felt, that despite twists and turns, like driving those roads, you were working together towards something, when actually you were just part of a transition, even if neither of you knew it at the time. Or you want to believe that at least, in good, honest intentions.
Things didn’t work out, and there's no one to blame because everyone was honest, with themselves, with their feelings, with each other. And respectful. No wrong was done so there is nothing to forgive, nothing to ask forgiveness for.
And yet the feelings linger. The feelings not of loss, no those were months ago, but the feelings of what could have been. Not expectations, but hopes. Not imagined, but actively worked.
Then you exhale, inhale, and keep going with your yoga class, figuring no one will notice a tear or two streaming down your face mixing with your sweat.
bicycled 30+ miles solo (incl. two ~10mi stints) today, more than ever.
focusing on one thing (cheering), accomplished something else much harder that I would have otherwise not attempted directly.

Reopening of Kezar Stadium has definitely brought a bigger crowd. We had 29 people today.
Though I need to build back up to doing the full track workout, I did have a couple of minor personal achievements this morning.
During part of the second 1600, when I was starting my 800, I managed to draft Jeff drafting Andy Cochrane for 200m (half a lap). Though Andy is still in recovery mode he's still ridiculously fast from my perspective. Being able to "keep up" with Andy, even for just a half a lap, even when he was "taking it easy", and in the middle of a 1600, felt like doing the impossible, and emboldened me to push harder on average in my other runs, including...
On the second 200 I made sure to take-off exactly when Kate said go. As I exited the turn onto the back straight, I started kicking farther back & up, and managed to pass & finish that 200 ahead of a couple of people who are usually much faster than me. I could barely breathe afterwards.
Also my 1 year trackiversary was 2015-063 (20 days ago) tantek.com/2014/064/t2/yesterday-npsf-track-kezar-trackattack
Hard to believe I've been running track workouts (on & off, mostly on) for over a year.

IndieWebCamp Cambridge 2015 is over. Having finished their ice cream and sorbet while sitting on a couch at Toscanini’s watching it snow, the topics of sameAs, reuse, and general semantics leads to a mention of Dublin Core Application Profiles.
Is Replaced By: Not applicable, wait, isn’t that supposed to be an inverse relationship?
I’m used to this shit.

We decide that the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) meet our needs. - I’m not sure the rest of the world would agree.
No surprises there.
The person has a name, but we want to record the forename and family name separately rather than as a single string. DCMI Metadata Terms has no such properties, so we will take the properties foaf:firstName and foaf:family_name
Wait what? Not "given-name" and "family-name"? Nor "first-name" and "last-name" but "firstName" and "family_name"?!?
Clearly it wasn’t proofread.
But it’s in the following table too. foaf:firstName / foaf:family_name
At least it’s internally consistent.
Oh, this is really depressing.
Did they even read the FOAF spec or did they just hear a rumour?
