I was riding with her on the street, trying to teach her how to jump when it happened. I must have said something wrong, or maybe it was because I touched her front break in a way she didn’t like. It’s hard to tell now, but the fact is that the next moment I was plunging into the air, kissing the ground, with her landing over my head. Fortunately I was wearing a helmet so I’m still in one piece, otherwise it could have been a lot worse. My friends still recommended me to see a doctor for dinner, but I think it’s too early to date someone else. Even though she is with one of my friends now, maybe there is still a way we can go over this, get back together and make our relationship work.
Wanna see what she did to me?

This is my new goal: running a half-marathon by the end of this year. This is twice the distance I am able to run right now, but with enough training and determination nothing is impossible. Not even a marathon.
And good luck to my mentor! Jan is doing his first “Ironman” Triathlon this summer (it includes a marathon).
[Added 2007-03-18] Half Marathon? Done. It took only a little more than a month.
After more than one week of staying in home because of a prolonged flu, I finally went running again, and surprise: I beat my best running time by another whole minute, finally reaching 35 minutes. While physically I am surely not fitter than usual, this being the last chance to reach the milestone this year gave me plenty of motivation.
So what are my milestones for the next year’s running? 30 minutes for the same track (that’s aprox. 15% faster), and then gradually increasing distance. For this however I need to measure the distance I am running, that’s why I’m considering buying an iPod Sport Kit. So if Santa is still around, that would be the perfect Christmas present, even if it comes with a slight delay.
About the “slow dancer” part of the title there is not so much to say. Just some online test that might accidentally be right, but I wouldn’t bet my life on it, considering the poor overall quality of the test and the fact that I skipped many stupid questions. Anyway, here are my results:
Added 2006-12-08: I finally managed to beat my best running time. The previous best was 37 minutes, and I matched it at least four or five times. Today I improved by one whole minute, and hopefully I will go below 35 minutes soon. So running with imaginary friends like Hammy seems to pay off. I wonder if a little caffeine would help
