  1. Scott Lynch's THORN OF EMBERLAIN

    Well, the joke update was a result of a lack of the real one, which was earlier announced by Scott.
  2. Exercise and Fitness: sticking to resolutions

    It was a great race after all. Perfect weather, thousands of runners and supporters, and I did manage to break my PB. Only by 8 seconds, but I'm glad anyway. My official time was 48:46. And my incredible wife has beaten her PB in marathon by 5 minutes, to 3:38:14!
  3. April Reads: What, fool, are you reading?!?

    I am able to (barely) understand if someone is confused with this series while reading Caine's Law. But after or while or even before reading The Blade of Tyshalle, the best of the series? I just can't wrap my head around it.

    @baxus Congratulations man, that's a great result, especially considering that you haven't been running much lately. I wish I could get there someday. But my trainer insists I will, so I believe him. I've just colected my starting package for tomorrow's race. Spent half an hour in a line, and that was a line only for people with numbers from 10000 to 11000. It's quite cold today and very windy, and the race starts at 9 am, but thanks to that I should quite comfortably catch my plane at 5 pm tomorrow (going for a business trip again).

    There will be almost 20 thousand runners in Sunday's marathon and 10k race in Warsaw, and it is slightly less than year ago.

    Damn, I stretched the muscle just above right knee (or is it muscle insertion?) during one of this weeks' trainings and it hurts, especially while climbing the stairs. Just two damn days before 10k race I participate in. I'm going to take it easy till Sunday, but I'm not sure it would be enough. It's not that I can't run because of it, but I do worry it can only makes things worse. And of course it lessens my chances for a PB.
  7. Andrzej Sapkowski II

    Sapkowski simply can't stand the fact that the games has become more succesful than his books. I can even partly understand him: someone else is making much bigger money on his own creation than he does. I can imagine I would be pissed off too, and signing wrong deal with the game producers obviously played a role in it. But that doesn't change the fact that he is indeed an arrogant, narcisstic jerk, always has been. Not to the extent of Goodkind though, let's preserve proportions here.
  8. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: On the fringes of the MCU

    Um, do I misremember something, or a person not being an inhuman exposed to a broken terrigen crystal should die? I'm not familiar with the comics, mind you. The episodes in the Framework were great. I wish it could last for a few more.

    Congrats Leap! I didn't know you were doing it in Budapest. Choose Warsaw next year (one of the biggest half-marathons in Europe, more than 12 thousand participants) and we can run together. On Sunday I run my first race since my HM, though it's just 10k, I hope I'll be able to run it progressively and under 50 minutes.
  10. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: On the fringes of the MCU

    I wonder what would killing Madame Hydra/Aida in the Framework mean in the real world. Could she just reappear like nothing happened?
  11. Andrzej Sapkowski II

    Really? Care to elaborate? I have originally finished the series almost 20 years ago, so my memory might be slightly clouded, but I do remember being seriously pissed off. And Season of Storms is definitely not on the same level, so I wouldn't expect much.
  12. Yeah, well, the power of social media. If it were in before Internet era, no one would ever hear about it but the few other passengers.
  13. Can't wait for the first Slowdive album in 22 years. Seen them live after they reunited and it was a magical experience. And now they actually make new music, that's more than I could hope for for such a long time. Just few more weeks. First two songs they already released set my expectations very high. It's their unmistakable sound allright. I'm a great fan of shoegaze in general (I'm also excited for a new Ride's album), but Slowdive was always very special to me.
  14. Iron Fist [SPOILERS - after page 3]

    All painfully true. And the conversation between Davos and Joy at the end? Really? Them, of all characters, that might actually have a reason to get rid of Danny? It wasn't easy to watch, that's for sure.

    I managed to sign up to the functional training session last night for the very first time at ARW and boy, it was intensive. I've got blisters on my hands from the medicine ball we were throwing for more than 45 minutes. And a quick tabata with burpees (8x20 seconds with 10 seconds breaks) in the end, before stretching. Just 70 minutes of work, but I was pretty tired. Today it is hills, and tomorrow I'm flying to Estonia for three days and probably won't have time for training, maybe some smimming in the hotel pool. I'm running my first 10k race since March half marathon on April 23th, it's a race accompanying Orlen Warsaw Marathon, the biggest in Poland. I'm aiming for a sub 50 minutes result, I wonder if I'm able to repeat the result from November last year.
