Badassness Galore ...

Congrats to KC @ 140 Point 6 Miles for crushing out 100 push ups tonight.  She takes the center of the podium as the first female victor and we are all very proud of KC for ripping it up!

Here is your badge, post it with pride:

The real reward though is being done with this freaking challenge!

Okay, I am leaving for San Antonio for a convention the next 4 days and will not be back until late Saturday night.  It is going to be hard eating and drinking on the Riverwalk for 4 days but I will somehow manage to get by!  Plan on doing some early morning runs around the Alamo and the Riverwalk.  I love running in cool places.  But the blog will more than likely be MIA during this time as I will be quite busy.

Did a track workout this morning (Got up at 4:10am, yeah!) with Annie, Jennifer, and Mike from the Tri Club.  They are some good peoples and we had a great workout.  The track is your typical 1/4 mile high school track and our workout was:  1 lap 10K pace, 1 lap marathon pace, 1 lap 5K pace ... Repeat this sequence 6 times. I absolutely love running on the more "cushioning" track surface and feel so darn fast.  We are going to try and make this a Tuesday morning staple.  I could have pushed harder today but was instead social.  Next week I am going to push until I puke on the track .... seriously, that is my goal.  Then after that it will be a mini-taper for the HIM.  

During yesterday's post I revealed that I enjoy campy B movie, SyFy flicks.  I know they are horrible but for some reason the more far fetched they are the more I enjoy the utter absurdity of the movie.  Since I am going to be AWOL for a few days I figured I'd leave you with the Trailer from the movie I watched on Sunday, ENJOY:

Thanks for Reading,



  1. Have good trip and enjoy your morning runs! See ya when you get back.

  2. Thanks Jeff! And thanks also for starting the 100 pushup program and motivating me to do it. I'll be posting all about it today. I was just looking at some coworkers pictures of the Riverwalk area you mentioned. There was a big underwriting convention there a couple of weeks ago and a few people from the office went to represent. It's beautiful there. Have a safe trip. Hope it goes by quickly...we'll miss you : (

  3. Wicked track workout! I'll have to try it out sometime. Have a good trip!

  4. If you saw KC in person, you would get it.... she's ripped.

    Now that the little thing called IMSG is over, I can start working on my 100 PU challenge...

    Not too many margaritas my friend... after all, it is Cinco de Mayo and you could get carried away (literally)

  5. Jeff, I am also a big fan of B sci-fi films, especially when they are in the context of Mystery Science Theater

  6. If I ever get rich and famous, I am hiring KC as a bodyguard.

    Ok, I let yesterday pass on the sysfy b rated stuff, go out and earn a pukie or something, geez, sysfy, really? You better been on the trainer

  7. Nice job on the track workouts! That sounds like it will be a fun weekly workout!

    Have a good trip!

  8. oooh how i love 400s...but man 410 is early. 430 is usually my limit. if i cant get it in then forget it. crazy triathletes! have fun in san antonio and hope ya have time to squeeze your workouts in :)

  9. Awesome track workouts! Have a safe trip. KC is a rock star! But we all knew that about her, didn't we? Ouch, 4:10 am. I have done it once or twice, but can't get up that early regularly or I am in bed at like 7.

  10. I love 4am....barrrrfffff, but it works, got to get it in when you can. That's why I hate it when people say, I can't, sure you can, you just don't want to.

  11. Hi Jeff,
    I hope that you have a safe trip..have fun:)

    Congrats to KC....way to go!! Lets hear it for the girls:)

  12. Before I heard of this 100 pushups thing I would have thought it was impossible. Now with all this buzz it seems do-able...and I want is that orange badge of honor. I'm going for it.
