Well I will get to the stupidity last, first let us dispense with the information and maps.

It wasn’t a very promising morning.  For the first two to three hours of the day I was wedded to my toilet- if you know what I mean.  But after some Imodium and a serving of Pepto-Bismol I finally got my inner-rumbling in order and was able to walk around the house.  Unfortunately, my prime window for running between 8 and 9:30 a.m. had passed. It was already 10 a.m. before I even got my stuff together and stepped out of the house.  Thanks to the late start is was already 90 (according to weather.com “feels like 95”) degrees. It was a good thing that I left my shirt behind.  It was a good chance to work on my tan.

Keep the above information in mind, because it plays a large role in the events that would define my stupidity.  (more…)

Here is the in depth info for day 1 of the 10 weeks to a ripped body total transformation challenge. (more…)

Despite going to bed at 172.6 lbs a good 15 minute run this morning landed me on the scale at 168.8 lbs. Not only was the weight good, but the run was excellent.

The problem with running is that when you fall off the horse it takes SO LONG to get back on again. For weeks (sometimes months) running can be a chore that hurts your feet, ankles, shins, knees, and lungs. Your stride can feel odd; twenty minute miles leave you feeling ashamed; and you would rather be ANYWHERE doing ANYTHING else, other than running.

But then comes a day like today. Your feet hit the pavement like pistons, firing exactly as programmed. Yeah your sucking air pretty hard BUT your lungs don’t hurt. For that matter, neither do your feet, ankles, shins, or knees. For that firs time you actually enjoy running.
