"When I’m in writing mode for a novel, I get up at 4:00 am and work for five to six hours. In the afternoon, I run for 10km or swim for 1500m (or do both), then I read a bit and listen to some music. I go to bed at 9:00 pm. I keep to this routine every day without variation. The repetition itself becomes the important thing; it’s a form of mesmerism. I mesmerize myself to reach a deeper state of mind. But to hold to such repetition for so long — six months to a year — requires a good amount of mental and physical strength. In that sense, writing a long novel is like survival training. Physical strength is as necessary as artistic sensitivity."
Haruki Murakami’s daily routine. Also see Murakami on writing and running, then dive deeper with his What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. (via explore-blog)

Somewhere down the line, jersey design went all wrong as sponsors logos became more plentiful than plain fabric. But thankfully times have changed, and the discerning rider can now choose from an increasing range of more considered attire for his or her upper half. Click the website link in my profile or visit www.cyclelove.net to see my new selection of jerseys which don’t look like someone vomited logos down their fronts. (at CycleLove HQ)
