Blowing Through my Clock-Watching
Sunday, October 23, 2011
I admit since returning to the treadmill I've been babying myself with only 35 mins. at a time on the treadmill. I excuse it as I'm usually on the treadmill before going to work and I can't drag my sorry behind onto the 'mill any earlier. BUT: on the weekend my time is a lot more flexible.
I decided tonight I wouldn't look at the clock and just go until I felt tired. I was feeling better on the 'mill than I had been in a while. Well I kept going and going and finally stopped at 52 mins. but even then I really didn't feel tired, just awfully sweaty and couldn't put off the lure of a hot shower any longer...lol! I usually start sweating at 15 mins. by 35 mins. I'm dripping. Tonight I was sopped with all the windows steamed up!
Nice to get out of my own way sometimes!
I had some help with some super tunes that hadn't been served up on my shuffling mp3 player in a while:
10cc had a super album way back in 1974 that never got the recognition it deserved. Here's one oddball tune with a driving "clockwork" beat:
Some oh-so-smooth bossa nova from one of my favs, Celso Fonseca:
And a great movin' along tune from Pat Metheny:
Keep 'er Sparkin' out there everyone!
ps...adding this WAY COOL video of a 100-year-old man finishing the Toronto Marathon! What an inspiration!
