Jeff: "Annie, c'mon get up we gotta go run."
Annie: **blank stare, one eye closed, the other half open**
Jeff: "Babe, get up, this is what it takes to be a champion (said in sarcastic tone)."
Annie: "I don't want to be a champion I just want to stay in bed."
She is a saint for putting up with me! See rolled out of bed and we left!
Thanks to Jennifer, Jama, and Mike for meeting us at the track and getting in a butt-kicking workout.
The workout goes like this: 3 lap (400 meters) warm up at very easy pace.
Then - 1 lap @ 10k pace/ 1 lap @ marathon pace/ 1 lap @ 5k pace/ 2 minute rest/hydrate then repeat the sequence. We did this 6 times. Annie, Jama, and I then did a 2 lap cool down and then it was time for me to try my 400 Meter Dash (440 yards).
So, Annie and Jama worked the stop watch and I took off. Back in my football days I used to have the perfect sprinter technique nailed down - now? Not so much. I wanted to lean forward and dig in with my toes but ended up with my head and chest up and back like a kite! About 300 Meters in I started to hurt real bad and could feel some acid starting to come up my throat. Since I am a meat-head I put my head down and ran harder and crossed the finish line at 59 seconds on the dot! Let out a big burp and the puke taste passed.
So who guessed 59 seconds? The prophet Jennifer at TheRunningArtist guessed exactly 59 seconds - spooky! Hey Jennifer got any suggestions on lotto numbers today?
I am going to try it again, the next time it will be before the track workout on fresh legs. I think it can me done around 54-55 secs!
LOST is on tonight!!! When the alarm went off at 4:15 this morning my first though was, "Yes! LOST is on tonight!" ... The description for tonight's LOST on the DirecTV guide says:
"Across the Seas" Locke's motives are finally explained.
All you other LOST junkies are probably as excited as me when words like, "Motives" and "Finally Explained" are used in a description! I mean we have been waiting six freaking years for these words to be listed in a description. This is epic and I am stoked. A couple of my buddies have already called me today because they are like a bunch of giddy school girls waiting for 9PM EST. My only hope is that it doesn't suck, I don't think that is too much to ask for?
Is anyone other than me and my father still watching "24" ?
The only reason I wonder about this is that last night's episode was quite possibly the most violent and disturbing torture scene that I have ever scene on network TV. And considering I haven't heard any extreme lefty groups proclaiming outrage at the Fox Network I am just assuming only my dad and me are the only remaining viewers. Even by Jack Bauer standards this was brutal. Now I'm not saying it wasn't cool and the Ruskie terrorists definitely had it coming but it was graphic!
Okay, I am off to get in 25 miles on the bike!
Thanks for Reading,
