Doing More With Less Since 1972

Category: Watching (Page 2 of 9)

Played this in my head on loop for roughly 35 minutes this morning.

You can stand me up at the gates of hell, but I won’t back down.

I saw two men keenly interested in the Presidency have a lively discussion about the roles and responsibilities of the job.

Still, I can’t bring myself to vote for Jim Lehrer.

@Newscoma is sad to report the death of her trusted vehicle, “Steve Austin“.

The upside is that this leaves room in the garage for a new car, “Colt Seavers”. Reportedly the sound system will be much better and will pay a very catchy theme song every time the ignition is turned on.

Heather Thomas > Lindsay Wagner >  Markie Post > Asha Greyjoy

It can’t be stressed enough:

If you are a senior or nearing retirement, your funk will not change under The Uplift Mofo Party Plan.

Best. Cover. Ever.

I wonder if Lionel Richie wrote this song about the same thing all other Faith No More songs are about.

Till I Reach The Highest Ground

I love data analysis. Here’s a look at a snapshot of my week 17 volume and pace comparisons from three different 18 week training periods.

Notes:

  • The other two periods were 2003/2004–I’m much older now.
  • I’m down 20-25 pounds now from where I was for the other two periods.
  • I’m running 3 days/week now instead of 4 back then
  • In 2004 I pretty much stopped training at the end of the program…only 50 miles of running the last month, and that included two 20s. That doesn’t come into play here, but explains the different performance on race day between 2003 and 2004.

I don’t plan on doing this often, but I’m hoping it puts me in a good frame of mind to set a PR.

Week 17 Comparison:

  • 2003: 16.35 miles @ 9:37 avg
  • 2004: 22 miles @ 9:33 avg
  • 2012: 20 miles @ 9:12 avg

I’m so glad that I know more than I knew then.
