Some training

Last night saw a visit to the treadmill. Warmed up then busted out 3 miles in 21 minutes 45 seconds. First 2 miles and first 1/2 of the 3rd mile at 7 1/2 minutes per mile, then up paced to 6 minutes a mile for the last 1/2 of the 3rd. That's a 7;15 mile average, not bad but I'd like to get sub 20, few more weeks and I think I'll try it.

Had the mp3 going:

Metallica - Whiskey in the Jar
Twisted Sister - We're not gonna take it
Beastie Boys - She's Crafty
Dropkick Murphy's - Tessie
Dropkick Murphy's - Kiss Me I'm Shitfaced

Then I pulled the cord out accidentally and had to finish in silence, tried to plug back in but but at 10 mph I couldn't do it and didn't want to really go off theback of the treadmill.

I also have started to monitor heart rate. At the end of the first mile my heart rate was 84 bpm, second mile was 111 bpm and end of third was 154.

Some plans in the works for next year if you can attend, Korea and I are hoping to be there:

Moat Mountain Smokehouse & Brewpub
Tuesday, February 6, 6:30 p.m.

"With winter upon us (sort of ), it seems like a good time to sit down, socialize, and figure out some plans for '07. I have no specific agenda but would like to discuss potential trail projects for '07, set a few maintenance dates and get ideas for our annual summer/fall weekend of fun."

Might try tonight to get out for a sort ride but temps are pretty low, -1 at 8:30 this morning and looks like it will be much colder by tonight. Maybe I'll just bring my bike outside and lick it to see if my tongue sticks.

sounds like a pretty decent playlist on the mp3. billy idol, meat loaf, and the stones for me.

take some beer along to unfreeze your tongue from your bike! (i'm pretty sure cuervo would work too, but why spill that?) :)

peace out, yo!

Blue, I'll use the Cuervo before I'd waste the PBR in the fridge. I guess I'll need to run a little further to get to Meat Loaf on the list. "what's it gonna be boy..."
