Ugh

Today didn’t go well.  Ugh. (see yesterdays post to learn what the hell I’m blabbing on about now.)

On positive news, I discovered that That Mitchell and Webb Look is now on Hulu, so, that’s cool at least.

Jogging vs Running, or, My Next Big Failure

leave a comment »

I am a jogger, not a runner.  I want to become a runner.  “What’s the difference?” you ask?  In my mind, speed and distance.

Joggers are slower and don’t travel nearly as far.  Right now, I jog through the woods a mile each day to a local dog park.  Then, after my mutt has been social for 30 or 45 mins, I jog back home.  (see map below)

I want to do more then this.  I’ve been motivated by friends, real and online, who are currently competing in 5k’s, 10k’s, half marathons and full marathons.  Two years ago I was doing 3.5 miles 3 times a week; I want to do that again, and more.  Also, sadly, I am also getting closer and closer to 40, and need to feel active.

Why am I mentioning all this?  Because I have been reading up on how to run, or rather, how to run well.  Yes, as stupid as it seems, there are techniques and styles to learn about something as simple as how to run.  I’ve learned that running takes a bit more work then just running each day.

So, the point I am trying to get to is… starting tomorrow, I am beginning a 90 day running workout plan.  As embarrassing as it is to advertise something so… sweaty and personal, I feel the need to do so.

Why?  So that I don’t slack off.  As I’ve mentioned many times before, I have a very hard time completing anything I start.  But, if I mention this fact publicly, I will be motivated not to quit.  Because quitting would be even more embarrassing then talking about this crap in the first place.

So, I’ve put this out there.  Wish me luck.  I’ll try not to go on and on about this, that’s not my goal, but I’ll keep you updated.

WTF-Awesome!

I don’t know anything about Bollywood cinema, but this clip left me wanting to learn more!

Apparently, it’s a Russian dub of an Indian movie.  Michael Bay should learn something from this before the next Transformers is made.

Lately, I’ve been enjoying photography that is as technically amazing as it is artistically stunning.  I found this one today, really enjoyed it, and wanted to share.  It’s a 24 hour shot of the sky.

(Note: Having an issue getting the photo on this page.  Please click these links for now, and I’ll try to fix this tomorrow.  Thanks.)

RED – A good popcorn, gun shootin’ movie with a touch of wit. Coulda been more stylish though. They tried, but, coulda gone further.

Best. Confessional Video. EVER!

Saw this on Tosh.0.  Loved it!  (Good Gawd I Hope This Is Just A Joke!)

I must confess, I watch a bit too much of the WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE.  But then, I have a 10 year old daughter, so… that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!
