Mind over Matter

Finished Week Three with a good four mile Willow Road-Shangri-La loop. Made it in time for breakfast at Golden Corral before the trip to College Park to work the DC Breeze game. I underestimated the time because the game was an 11:30 start; the game ended about 2 and cleanup took about 45 minutes. Just got in the door half an hour ago.

My six month workout defines “recovery” as some “light aerobic exercise.” This can either be any form of exercise other than jogging or running. My choices are 1) walking, 2) swimming, 3) cycling (spinning?), 4) elliptical or rowing machine. For now I’ll settle for sleeping in tomorrow and getting a nice walk when I get home from work.

I have a pretty big week ahead at work (a few big decisions on some things), then memorial Day Weekend. the only thing I have set right now is that I am going to watch some married friends renew their vows. I have some financial commitments, so I am not sure about my yearly Memorial Day Weekend trip to DC. It usually involves  Hilton hotel, watching the UEFA Champions League final at a nice sports bar (or just a nice bar with ciders and good bar food), and memorial Day at the various war memorials in DC. usually there’s  DC United soccer game, but the Screamin’ Eagles don’t have any home games on any holiday weekends this year. I guess that’s the price you pay for being the worst team in Major League Soccer.

The longer runs are coming, so I need to get over to the Pax River gym and find some maps on their on-base road courses. I am doing okay on the runs, but mostly because I focus on things other than the physical impact of the run. I don’t ignore my form and pace so much as i try to shift focus away from the pain, especially for not having run so far, so long.

Tomorrow’s post is going to be a rant of sorts, since it’s really hard to discuss a brisk half-hour walk.

In honor of the opening weekend of the latest Godzilla remake, I offer this for today’s video:
