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!

    Way to go, Don!

    Love the music you shared, ESPECIALLY that Pat Metheny piece. Dang, they were musical geniuses. Lyle Mays on keyboards gets me every time! Each ONE of them is so damned talented, and then there's the further genius of Metheny who brought the sound together. The core group has been together since 1977!!!

    Interesting comment on there, "Global top flight musicians that ran beside the better strategy architects of staying to what they were as individuals. Smart, saavy, and intelligent blends of so many modes of the multiple ways to be happy´╗┐ without lyrics; the music equates to lyrics according to Einstein..."
