you can be able to define the following.
I can not be able to define:
FLM, DSQ, Fn, Rk & Fertlek.
Is DSQ- DQ, disqualified?
Is Fertlek- Fartlek?
Also, I can not be able to define what I mean by, I can not be able to define. I can not be able, I can not.
You might be a runner if you've ever skipped weightlifting class because you had a meet that afternoon.
-You hate taking two week breaks because you know you'll be cranky by the end and you'll be sore when you run again.
-During the two week break you see a treadmill at the Y and instantly want to cry because you know you can't use it.
|you are lame|
why the hell would anyone take a two week break
...the football team has shut up with insults because you ran three miles while they just ran one.
...you've finished your training run and the baseball team asks you to do a mile with them and you have to hold back b/c your warmdown pace is too fast for their workout.
...you wear white shirts to winter practice so you can win the "muddiest t-shirt" award.
...randomly start doing (sometimes slightly akward) stretches in public places because you feel sore or tight.
...you think nothing of stopping in some starbucks or gorcery store just to relieve yourself so you can run longer.
...you drove several hours to the state xc meet just to watch.
...went (or ran) to ANY running meet just to watch.
...can play the "chariots of fire" theme on your instrument of choice.
...you have been seen running in any weather at all hours of the day (and night)
...know how to run to your job/school/friends houses faster than you can drive.
...tried to convince your school's band director to take the band to a cross country meet.
...your teachers have stopped asking if "you have to race today"; they just let you leave.
...you know what all the colored lines and triangles on a track actually mean.
...rather than swap drinking tales, you prefer to compare funkyest runs to strange team events.
...you get sick of hearing "how far did you run today?" or "how fast can you run the mile?" (i know theses aren't original, but they are extreme pet peeves of mine)
Your're definitely not a runner if you think Dean Sucks.
You are just plain bitter and jeleous not to mention petty. Dean will always ROCK!!
You take your heart rate after sex, just to see if you hit aerobic. I took it right after one that was so intense I thought I was going to pass out - 96. I was really dissapointed. I'm sure my wife loved that....
