holy hell I'm old

I just went with my wife to see a friend's band play at a bar here in Denton and they didn't go on until 10:30. I should have been in bed for like an hour already but instead, I'm surrounded by college kids 10 years younger and completely out of place. My good friend, Adam, was there too... he and I used to be in a band together. We were watching our old bass player's new band, Constant Seas, at a dive in Denton. It was a great show but we are not built to stay awake longer than 10:00. After a few Shiners and Camels, we were doing alright but I'm so freakin tired, I can't stand it. The show was great and it was good to have a break from the 5 kids but couldn't Emo-kids do their shows like at 7 instead of midnight?

Oh ya, it was too loud which means I'm officially too old. Bring on the Viagra and a pillow...I'm good.

day whatever

Today's schedule was 4 miles. I ran/walked for 50 minutes covering 3.5 miles...suck it.

day 23

For some reason I'm fat. I haven't quite figured it out yet. Maybe I shouldn't eat popcorn at 10:30 at night or perhaps I shouldn't eat 10 Oreo cookies right after dinner either. It seems like these examples are hindering my ability to lose weight.

today's schedule was 3.5 miles. I did run 7 laps without stopping and then my left leg almost exploded on the treadmill. To avoid any carnage, I decided to do the last distance on the elliptical.

I'm going to continue to ponder other possible reasons that I'm not losing weight...

day 21

Today's run was scheduled to be 5 miles. I don't think I have ever run 5 miles at one time in my life. I am still recovering from strep throat so my body doens't have as much energy as usual. I still decided to go to the gym and give it what I had. I went 4.5 miles by walking a lap and running a lap. I ran the first 2 miles at 6.0 and the 2nd 2 at 5.4. I ran one lap at 7.0 and half of a lap at 9.0. I thought I was going to die. It was still a great work out. So far, I'm down 5 pounds from when I started.
