In Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia, the 1,500 metres is described as "the greatest race of the Games." Today that has bifurcated into the marathon and the finals of the 100-metre sprint.

"Riefenstahl's films develop the concept of dynamic form in Boccioni and the mobile cut in Deleuze/Bergson to arrive at a reassertion of the ways in which movement privileges expression over content. The foregrounding of dynamic form suggests that Riefenstahl composes with fascism but does not compose a fascist (disciplinary) body. What she composes is the expression of a becoming-body symbiotically linked to fascism but in excess of its disciplinarity. Riefenstahl composes-with. She begins with the beautiful, the young, the strong, but what she composes is never a particular or individual body. Movement is the commanding form of her work. … The becoming-body in Riefenstahl is a force to be reckoned with, not least of which because it reinvents space-time. It is a force for the future. Certainly, its dynamism remains imbued with the charisma of Hitler's fascism. Yet it is also more-than: it becomes beyond the boundaries imposed by the era of its inception. It is more dangerous, more powerful, more evocative than what has been called a 'fascist body' or an 'aesthetic of fascism' because it is infinitely more malleable than even the regime itself" (Erin Manning, Relationscapes, p.135).

"Mr. Vitanza runs both the marathon and sprint of discourse, a 2-inch thick dissertation or an oratory in 420 characters or less. (Have you *heard* him perform at Facebook Square?) He shows that we can in fact be speedy with our thought and its expression, with our language and its related language games, with our performativity. (The societies of control demand we develop these strategies, do they not?) But his technique also suggests we must remember to root this rhetorical action cooking in a gesture of slowness, to be polyrhythmic in approaching how communicative action shapes our very thought itself. This rootedness is rhizomatic: bend what the ingredients can do with every linguistic turn; multiply connections. Call it style. Or a virtuosity compromised by overexposure. Or a minor literature, performed. Indeed, like Mr. Yamada, Mr. Vitanza strives to be a minor character in his own play."

50 Subroutine One: Running
(

Day 1 – 8 x 400 meter repeats @ current pace. Recover between each repeat with 2 minutes of passive recovery.

Day 2 – 2 mile fartlek run.

Day 3 – 2 x 1600 meter repeats @ 5K pace. Recover between each repeat with 4 minutes of passive recovery.

Day 4 – Run 2 miles @ easy pace.

Day 5 – 6 x 200 meter repeats @ 400 meter pace. Recover between each repeat with 1 minute of passive recovery.

Day 6 – 2 to 3 mile fartlek run or rest.

Day 7 – 2 x 200/400/200 compound sets. Run 200 meters @ 800 meter pace, 400 meters @ current mile pace and then another 200 meters @ 800 meter pace. Take no recovery between the distances. Recover between each set with 4 minutes of passive recovery.

Day 8 – Run 5 kilometers @ easy pace.

Day 9 – Run 4 x 400 meter repeats @ current mile pace. Recover between each repeat with 3 minutes of passive recovery. Then run 4 x 200 meter repeats @ 800 meter pace. Recover between each repeat with 2 minutes of passive recovery. Then run 4 x 100 meter repeats @ sprint pace. Recover between each repeat with 1 minute of passive recovery.

Day 10 – 5 kilometer fartlek run.

Day 11 - Run for 12 minutes alternating between 1 minute @ mile pace and 2 minutes @ easy pace. Then run 6 x 100 meter strides.

Day 12 – 5K fartlek run or rest.

Day 13 – Run 8 x 100 meter repeats up a steep hill. Run @ current pace. Recover by running down the hill @ easy pace.

Day 14 – Run 5 kilometers @ easy pace [adapted from running planet].

60 Subroutine Two: Writing
(

After each running subroutine the program will write, which will involve the use of multiple interfaces (such as notebook and computer).

(
70 Subroutine Conditions
(

1. all distances and times will be estimated, using low-fidelity measuring devices to assist the estimation.

2. the exchange rate between [distanceTraveled] and [wordsWritten] shall be approximately 20:1 (eg. 8 x 100 meter repeats = 8 x 5-word fragments; 5k fartlek = 250-word blog post).

3. the performances, seismologies and exposures of skin tectonics must be regularly recalibrated throughout the program.
