Chasing the Morning Muggies Away!

Thursday, July 17, 2008

Woke up feeling *blech*...telling myself, okay, back off on the treadmill today, already muggy out...you can slog through this and get 'er done...

But THEN my mp3 player came to the rescue and dished up the Allman Brother's "Mountain Jam" and WOW! Just what the doctor ordered! I had started with a slower than usual 3.8 mph, but soon I couldn't resist and bumped it up to 5.0 mph and was jogging along to Duane, Gregg and Dickie just jamming their hearts out! I couldn't go the WHOLE jam (over THIRTY MINUTES LONG...lol!), but made it @ halfway before kicking the pace down and switching to something else. I'll catch the awesome bass and double drum solos another time. :-)

Here's a link to a sample of the song:

Unfortunately this track is the ONLY one not for sale as a single mp3 (most likely as it runs 33 mins. long...lol!) but the whole album is a keeper...blast from the past...originally recorded in 1972.

Later on I'm looking forward to a bike ride after work, despite 90 degree weather! And THEN planning to catch up with a few of our local Sparkies at the park @ 6.

    We all experience those "blech" days, but the important thing is you didn't let it stop you and you got a great workout while "jamming"! Awesome dude! Hey, you're so lucky to get to go to a hangout with local Sparkers! I wish Conway had some! You GO guy! Rock and Spark ON!

    P.S. Thanks for your as always, GRRREAT posts today!
