MCM 2019/T-Minus 44: Split

Sooo…I got up at 0345 for my 0445 workout of intervals and circuit cycle. I did do the three laps of 0.8 mi. around the Abberly Crest Apartments parking lot. However, when I went back to the apartment to pick up my logbook and towel, I forgot my key fob that would electronically allow access to the Apex Clubhouse gym.

Sooo…I had to walk back to the house, and then i couldn’t find my keychain with the fob, and then I had to go take a No.2…

And I made it back to the gym.

At 1750 (5:50 p.m.) this afternoon.

The bad thing about it was, I was all stretched out and warmed up; I just had to take my cool down walk back to the apartment for my stuff, mosey on down to the Apex gym, and just jump straight into the workout.

But, nope…just another one of those things.

Sooo…tomorrow is the Zion 6 run. Oh, I was talking with a friend of mine who  is the information technology/cybersecurity chief at my workplace. The reason why my phone was acting up yesterday, hitting the “pause” button on my MapMyRun app? Well, my model of Samsung smartphone isn’t waterproof, so it can be really sensitive to damp objects rubbing against it…like a very sweaty Flipbelt that hasn’t been washed since the Sunday run, and then got fished out of the clothes hamper.

Learning all the time.

So tonight I am going to start prepping for 1) my run tomorrow, 2) my company picnic on Saturday afternoon, and 3) my drive to Rockville for my Sunday run, which i will also have to prep for…starting with eating a lot more and a lot better. Tonight, it’s Uber Eats (cha-CHING!), and some good eating out Friday and Saturday night so I can load up on good protein and carbs to burn on Sunday.

I also need more bananas. But at least I’m eating them before they’re all brown and soggy.

Song of the day: Kongos/”Come With Me Now:”

This whole song sounds like an invitation to whipping’ someone’s ass! Love the steel pedal solo in this one, and yes, I can dig the accordion as well. To be honest, I don’t remember how I found this song on YouTube, or maybe I remember it from an ad campaign?

“Even though it was released in 2011, it became popular after finding ad spots with “The Originals” and NBC Sports. It recieved renewed attention in 2016, when it was featured in Amazon Prime’s advertising campain for their show “The Grand Tour”. (HT: Genius)
