Is it Saturday yet?

I'm chomping at the bit to run another marathon! I haven't run 26.2 miles or longer since last March, and I'm not sure I've had a break of that length in 3 years...which is most likely why I had the break I did---injury.

Last night I ran 3.5 miles with Parsenn at very casual "Parsenn Pace," then dropped him off and picked up the pace a bit for another 4.5 miles. I really tried to keep my stride smooth and not really get out of sorts breathing-wise, and ended up running 6:30-6:45 pace that entire time. I wasn't expecting that pace at all, and it only ramps up the anticipation for the marathon this weekend. I'll be driving down on my own (too much work for E&E to try and get down there) and meeting up with a friend who will crew for me. Because I don't want to taper too much, I'm still going to run relatively hard on Thursday.

Until then, I'm in full mini-taper madness!

Hey, your blog's back! Time to alert Glaven...

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

Um ... you're aware you've lost your domain name, right? That the only way to get here now is through the http://left-right-repeat.blogspot.com/ url? Because if you use this one - http://www.left-right-repeat.com/ - you get a site that wants to SELL YOU BACK your domain name.

I hope they charge you ONE MEEEELION DOLLARS because, hey, that's capitalism baby! It CAN'T be wrong!

Hey Guys!

Yes, I realized I lost the domain, and then when I tried to get it up again, it kept telling me it was already registered. I know! By ME!

So...like most things with me and the intertubes, I got frustrated and quit. Back to the blogspot for me.

G- are you saying capitalism IS wrong? I'd give that more thought, but I'm busy reading about Chris Christie right now :)

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

My point was even simpler and more fundamental than that (so simple that even C. Christie might be able to grasp it) - viz., nobody in teh blogosphere, other than SteveQ and me, knows you¹ are alive or how to get to your blog.

And your blog, unlike Chris C., is not so big that it can be seen from space using Google Earth (Oooo! ooo! There's Christie right now, shoving six hot dogs down his gullet while stealing a retired widow's pension money!), so you need to get out there in teh blogosphere and let people know your new url.

In fact, when you try to subscribe to http://left-right-repeat.blogspot.com/ in Google Reader, it still tries to resolve to your old domain name ... or was still doing so yesterday.

So DO something! You want the widest possible audience² for your teatard rants, right?

Because if little Eddy ever does learn how to kick you in the nards, I for one want to see the video.
¹ Speaking metonymically here, where "you" = "your blog", which latter, come to think of it, is more three-dimensional than the actual you, I suspect.

² "Widest possible audience" = a. As many foax as possible; or b. Chris Christie.

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

Yep. Just tried to unsubscribe from http://www.left-right-repeat.com/ and then subscribe to http://left-right-repeat.blogspot.com/ and GR still resolves to the former.

Might wanna go about trying to reverse that now, considering ...

SteveQ said...

I don't know who Chris Christie is... and I'm fine with that.

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

OMG OMG OMG!1! SteveQ admitting to being ignorant of something ... AND being fine with that?!1!?


I tried putting in left-right-repeat.blogspot.com, http://left-right-repeat.blogspot.com. etc. - GR still resolves to http://www.left-right-repeat.com/

I don't know why.

You HAD to put those bloody hyphens in there? Do you have any idea how long it takes a hunt-and-pecker (do NOT shorten that to "'pecker"!) to type these addresses?

Keep at it, though.

Or, at this point, Eddy should be a bit more 'net savvy than you. Let him have a bash at it.

In blogger:

Settings --> Publishing --> Switch to Custom Domain.

Switch it back to l-r-r.blogspot.com.

That should fix it.

Did you already do this? Because sometimes it takes a while for that to kinda cascade through the various servers involved. So if you DID already do this, maybe you just need to wait a bit ...

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

Look at you! Effed your domain all up and STILL getting 9 comments!

Way to suck, Nic.

nwgdc said...

10 comments!!! TEN COMMENTS!!

Yes, I already switched back to the domain thing.

Hoping that works, or I'll have to begin harrassing you and Steve via anonymous posting.

Hey, I admit to being ignorant of a lot of things: niceties of civilization, women (just learned the crus of the clitoris is wishbone-shaped and 5 inches long - thought that had to be a joke), linux-based operating systems...
