England vs new zealand match will go down in history.

Quick recap
New Zealand bat first. Do ok and start picking up the pace and score 241. England do Well but new zealand make it difficult. 39 runs required with 12 balls. 15 points required with 7 balls. 2 points requires and 1 ball. It's a tie.super over. England go first and get 15 in one over.new Zealand given gift wide ball . Score six and 2 points needed and 1 ball left. Tie again. But England win as they scored more field runs or something like that. First time champions. :headbang:

Note: Pakistan vs India got me into cricket recently

people here were just beside themselves with joy that NZ beat india in the semis. hurray for england, finally not sucking at one of the sports they've given the world.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest

i don't know anything about cricket. but one of my co-workers is from India and he's huge into it. he can also play pretty well. he cricket-pitched a tennis ball at me once and it was very impressive.. 3 perfectly thrown pitches from way out.

and ya he watched the finals. said it was epic.

seemed so excited. hah.

He may have been sad when India didn't make it but what happened in the finals made up for it.

A tie, which mean going to super overs, nail biting through out. Super over has never happened before in world cup. That also ended in tie. Match of entire world cup.

I was at the farm and watched a little on someone's phone and then he had to go so I searched all over internet and could only find audio commentary and just had it placed by my ear as audio was low and that was intense especially when you can't see if a person scored for so commentator increasing his voice as ball goes far and either caught or 4 or 6. Listening was definitely intense but video is better.

I was so pumped throughout listening. Enjoyed it.
