'Heart of Gold’ put me in the middle of the road. Traveling there soon became a bore, so I headed for the ditch.” – Neil Young, comments written for the liner notes of his 1977 compilation, Decade.
Here we go folks.
I’ve been running a couple of miles every other day. Now I’m increasing the length and will start increasing the tempo.
I’ve been looking to refresh my running music lists. Here’s a list of tunes from Outside Online. Not bad. I’ll post the list of 160 BPM tunes that I run to shortly. I’m open to suggestions!
Anyway, here’s the Outside post.
Nice morning. Going to get into the 90’s here this afternoon so decided that I had better get this in during the early AM.
Another run, just a bit faster and consistently into the 9 minute mile mark.
Did a bit of a longer run yesterday. 4+ miles. Felt really good.
Then spent the morning helping my Dad remove a stump.
I changed my modus operandi today. I got up early-ish and went for a run. Generally, I’m not organized enough to get up in the morning and then go for run.
Time to make some changes though and this is one of them.
The thing is that running in the morning is generally a LOT better than running in the afternoon. The temp is cooler and it’s a great way to get the motor running in the AM.
The traffic on our road starts getting a bit crazy @ 7am so I need to get out earlier to avoid that.
In case anyone is curious below is one of the songs from the playlist I had going. Love the guitars slinking around on this one.
Hasta la vista…baby.
Went for a run last night right after a big rain. It was pretty humid out and when I got to the end of the driveway I looked left and saw this.
I did go into the light.

“on the road again…”
3 mile Saturday. 3 miles this morning. Not
Signed up for the Grand Rapids River Bank run 10k and the Chicago 1/2 Marathon in September. Also participating in the ‘Warrior Dash’ in July. Probably do some 5k’s as well.
Hoping to dump 30 lbs. Not using the Nike tracking stuff since I’m running inside. Instead using the FitBit One for now.
Now I just need to figure out how to get the FitBit stats on the web site! They do have an API…Hmmmm…
This was still a hard run. It was 91 degrees when I started and the climb up was pretty tough. For a comparison the first time I did this run it was…69 degrees. H.O.T.
Regardless, fun and a nice accomplishment.
