    Boston Marathon

    Saw this from Runner's World, talent + hard work = results Yuki Kawauchi, surprise winner of the Boston Marathon earlier this week lives in a two-story suburban home with his mother and younger brother in Saitama Prefecture, about 34 miles north of Tokyo. Since graduating from college, he's worked 40 hours a week (1pm-9pm Monday to Friday) in an office for the Saitama Prefectural government. He answers phones, enters data, and collects tuition and meal payments. As a government employee, he gets about 25 days off and uses most of them for racing and traveling. Straitlaced and serious, Kawauchi spends most of his spare time running. Four mornings a week, he'll log 18 to 20 kilometers (11 to 12 miles) over about two hours in a park near his house. At night, he'll strength-train in his room with homemade equipment, using an old bike tube as an exercise band and a 33-pound weight bar from which he hangs his retired running shoes. He does speedwork on Wednesdays and uses the weekend to make up some mileage. He might hit mountain trails for anywhere from three to seven hours, but often, he competes. Kawauchi targets monthly “main” races before which he'll run various distances in preparation. Since 2010, Kawauchi has run an average of 12 Marathons and 10 Half Marathons per year. Add to that, about 15-20 other races (5k's, 10k's, 20k's, 50k's etc). Kawauchi tries to find a race most weeks and uses them for training. [information from: Runner's World]

    Boston Marathon

    Congrats both of you!!! Really good times too despite the conditions. It was reported to be one of the slowest pro marathon times in Boston history.

    New TT/TRI bike from Wilier

    Not really keen on disc brakes on triathlon bikes, it just adds another element to worry about on the bike for me. Besides, who brakes in a triathlon.

    Arthroscopy of the knee

    My missus showed this to me yesterday, never knew the meniscus can be replaced. Probably should sit down with the doctor to discuss all the options available, would really want a way to avoid surgery. Not sure if there is a way to manipulate the folded flap back?

    Arthroscopy of the knee

    OMG, that is the same thing i have, doctor says apparently this is very common and can happen to just about anyone. Some just don't realized it until get too painful. But getting back on the bike in 1-2 weeks sounds promising.

    Arthroscopy of the knee

    That doesn't sound too good, think I'll be heading that direction too... How long was your rehab after the surgeries? How many months after only did you started running again?

    Arthroscopy of the knee

    Are you still able to run with these tears? I can't seem to run, as the muscles around the knee lock up.

    Arthroscopy of the knee

    Anyone gone through this medical procedure before? I would like to know their review/feedback on recovery times, impact on activity levels, etc I got an mri scan on my knee, and it shows a tear on my lateral meniscus. Doctor suggested getting it repaired or replaced.

    Running shorts

    I have a pair of the C3s, they don't soak up that much sweat, but the inner liner does...
