I haven't run today yet, but I just feel like announcing that my left leg feels a lot better today (as far as just walking around and sitting is concerned). I will give it a thorough thrashing tonight though, because like Clairie, I believe that the body is evil and must be punished.
Tesso, those "builders" face masks you were talking about are actually very commonly used in Japan, often by people who have a lurgy, but also by people who don't want to catch one, and also to protect against kahunshoo (hayfever). The recommended way to wear them is like this. ;-)
