Lenten Discipline Day 18

Day 18, 3.05 miles in 35 minutes. WOOOOOHHHHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!


For all the musicians out there...

I totally jacked this from the internet, but I have enough musician friends and know enough music lover that I figured I would share

A guy calls the musicians' guild to get a quote on a 6 piece band for a wedding. The rep says "Off the top of my head, about $2000".He says"WHAT? FOR MUSIC?. "The rep responds " I'll tell you what. Call the plumbers' union & ask for six plumbers to work from 6 to midnight on a Saturday night. Whatever they charge you, we'll work for half." Pass it on! (From Absolute Underground TV)

Lenten Discipline Day 17

Day 17, didn't think I would get much of a run in today, so I thought I would work on my running "form". Worked on lengthing my stride, keeping my back straight and breathing in threw the nose and out of the mouth.
I got 2.61 miles in 30 minutes and I feel GREAT!!! The theme for todays run was provided by The Japandroids!

Lenten Discipline Day 11

Day 11, fell off my pace a bit. Couldn't find my groove, even the sweet bassline and guitar riffs of Fugazi didn't help, till the last five minutes. Only made 2.4 miles in 30 minutes. BBBBBOOOOOOOOOO for me!!!


Lenten Discipline Day 10

Day 10, no specific time, no specific distance. It's day 3 of St. Patricks celebrations, and today was the parade. Did alot of walking but nothing I can report.
Luckily the lord is forgiving of our short comings.
I am wiped out and ready to sleep all day tomorrow.

Lenten Discipline

The question of the last few day has been what are you giving up for Lent?
The short answer for me is NOTHING!

I don't know when, how, or why, but the Episcopal Church believes that if you take on positive habitat it is as good as giving up a bad one.

So I am taking up running, again. I was running almost everyday in the fall and I don't really know why I stopped. Lazy? Cold/Rainy Weather? Etc, etc.....

So for my Lenten Discipline I am Running. And to help me stay focus and honest (and to shame me into maintaining my discipline), I am going to be posting my results for the 40 days of lent.

Day 1(today): 2.26 miles in 23 minutes

Not my best time. Back in November I was up to 5 miles of solid running in 45 minutes. But it not a bad place to (re)start.

You all should be scared!
