Saved by the Sprinkler

You maybe wondering what has happened to the Drive to 185! Well, It is all but over because I am planning on doing an Ironman in October. This being said, I figured it would be a good idea to go running. . . .

So it is Saturday around 12:30pm, and it is all of 93 degrees outside. I got up 2 hours ago and I've had my morning coffee. I figure, what better time to go run for an hour then now! Keep in mind, I haven't seriously run in weeks. I drink a glass of water, throw on my asics, and get my ass out the door.

I start out easy enough. Running a shady but rolling hill route to keep myself cool. I get 20 minutes into the run. I'm feeling pretty good. (Keep in mind the shade) In my infinite wisdom I choose to head down hill and run on Devon Park Road. This is a road through a treeless industrial park. I get there. It is an oven! At times I could feel my skin stinging from the sun. It was 2 miles of pain. By the time I reach the end of Devon Park Road, I'm a defeated man. I am talking to elephants that are drinking Margaritas as they read Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. It was a bad scene.

When I realize the elephants aren't really there, I decide to head back up the hill and get in the shade, even though it may make the run longer. Cursing my way up the hill, I run in the shade and tell myself I'm almost done. Then what do I see, but the greatest gift in the world. Someone is watering there front yard with a SPRINKLER! I was estatic! I run over to the sprinkler, and stand over the thing for 3 minutes. It was beautiful. I felt great! I continue my run, and within another 3 minutes I'm dry. By the time I got home I was hurting again, but damn that sprinkler saved my life. It was a great run.

I was going to write some funny bit about procrastination. It was gonna be great. I mean it was gonna be the funniest thing you ever read on the internet. But then I realized how absolutely tired I am since I haven't had any coffee yet this morning.

Life begins after coffee. . . . and this includes blogging.

Lovely Day, Lovely Day, Lovely Day
Love - ly - Day.
Lovely Day, Lovely Day, Lovely Day
Love - ly - Day.
Lovely Day, Lovely Day, Lovely Day
Love - ly - Day.

Look at how early this Post is . . .

Sometimes all I need to do is lift some weights and everything is right with the world. Needless to say yesterday was one of the best workouts I've had in some time. I think taking 3 days off due to a busy weekend helped.

Other good news, I am no longer officially the smallest guy in the gym. I'm still fighting for the basement, but some skinny puke usually enters the gym and pretends to lift weights. That makes me feel really good. It used to be incredibally frustrating to lift weights while being out gunned by dudes twice my size. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a skinny puke myself, just a less skinny puke than the other skinny pukes.

I didn't get a chance to weigh myself this week but I think that is a good thing. I'll keep on lifting and see what next week has for me.

From the weekend news . . .

The US Pro Cycling race on Sunday proved in my mind without a doubt that cycling is the single hardest endurance sport a man can do. I don't care if you can run 500 million miles by yourself, cycling is a sport that is all about trying to make other cyclist feel pain. It kicks ass!

Stephen Malkmus is a rock god. If you don't know, you best find out! Stephen Malkmus

That is all I got people, hopefully this has quenched your thirst . . .
