Morning all.

Gotta be careful with that Colombian coffee there Major.  It'll sneak around and bite ya'.  Cool

Well, I forgot to set my alarm this morning, so instead of getting up at 0530, I rolled out of bed at 0715.  I enjoyed the sleep, though I still haven't gotten my morning run in yet.  Roll Eyes

And to answer your question from teh last thread about the Beretta, Major, it's the Tomcat 3032.  Little mouse gun, tip up barrel.  Actually, it's pretty much the gun James Bond used in the original book, though his was a 25ACP instead of a .32ACP. Grin  I did put the money down on it, so I'll be getting both the Smith & Wesson, and the Beretta.  Whichever one my mom likes better, I'll keep the other one.  Tongue

And, to wrap things up, I think I came very close to getting mugged last night.  Shocked  I was walking home from the other side of town as it was getting dark, and by the time I got to my side of town, the street lights were the brightest thing out there.  Anyway, as I was about to turn from one street onto the main highway, there was this bush that created a very dark shadowy area, and I swung about ten feet wide of it.  As I was going past, a fellow of about six feet, wearing gang-like clothing stepped out of that shadow and fell in behind me.  I increased the speed of my stride, and he stayed right behind me.  He followed me for almost 100 yards through a well lit part of the street, until I crossed the highway under a street lamp and cut through a neighbor's yard, which has motion activated flood lights and a loud German Shepard that knows me.  As soon as I got out of the neighbor's yard, I bolted into the shadows and didn't stop until I got my porch.  I'm here to tell you, I ran an Olympic-level half mile.  Adrenaline anyone?

   “Yer' getting slow.  Better work on that.”  She said and walked back into the house with the empty coffee pot.

Morning all, I brought some fresh cream for the coffee if anyone is interested. Cheesy

First, I must voice that technology is very confusing.  YouTube says that it should not take more than 8 hours to process a video before it goes live.  I have one on hour 45 and it's still not done.   Undecided  This is why I like guns, they're never late.

I also think I found a small meteorite last night.  At least, it looks like it was melted in certain areas, and I found it in a spot that hasn't had a fire (or river) in at least 200 years.  That and it's magnetic. 

Finally, I'm confused about my run times.  For anyone that knows/cares about those things, Sunday, I ran an 11:30 mile and felt like I was three steps from an early grave.  Monday, I ran a 10:30 mile, and could have gone for a second.  Tuesday I ran an 8:49, and while I was pretty wiped out, ten minutes later I did over 50 each pushups/situps/flutterkicks. And then Wednesday, I ran an 8:44 in the morning, and walked 5 miles in the evening in under an hour.  Now, I can normally walk at a fast pace forever, but running, I've always been that guy pulling 10-minute/mile.  Confusion.  Roll Eyes Huh

TK,

Thanks for the creamer!

Here's a little story from my running past (I've done nothing but get fat for the last 5 years)...
I registered and trained for my first marathon in 2008 (the event was to be held in January 2009).  I had a good summer of training behind me, and I did my first half marathon that October.  I finished with under a 9:30 pace.  Well, I figured if I could run a half at this pace, I should be training at that pace!  I was injured by Thanksgiving (IT band issues), and ended up not being able to train for about a month.  I ended up having to back out of the long run and enter the half that January.  Lesson learned ... Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. 

Make your routine training runs moderate...1:00/mile at least under your race/best pace.  Build endurance, stability in your muscles and aerobic capacity.  Free advice, worth exactly what you paid for it!

Off now to finish packing....going to my first NCOWS event at Berger Sharpshooters!

Have a safe and fun Labor Day w/end, y'all!

Thanks for the advice Troy.  Cheesy  I'm definitely taking it much easier this go around than last time.  Last time I went from my longest run being a game of tag, to 5k a week, to 55k a week.  All in about two weeks.  Shin splints, knee pain, etc, and I stopped running.

 This time, I'm going more moderately.  Roll Eyes  Started this week at 1 mile, with Thursday and the coming Sunday off, and Friday being a test day.  Next week up to 1.5 miles with Wednesday and Sunday off, and Friday again a test day.  My goal is to finish a 5k about half way through October, and maybe a 10k in January, if I can hack it. 

My final goal is Air Force Special Tactics, but that won't be until January or February (What is this, Plan G for my life? Roll Eyes ), so I have time to work up to physical standards for that. But, running is my biggest weakness, so I need to work it.
By the way, my final time for this week (pushing myself hard on test day) is 8:12.

And good luck at NCOWS!

Evening y'all.

I ran track in HS. I was not the fastest. I was not in the middle of the pack.  Roll Eyes If memory serves me correctly, I ran everything except the 1/2 mile.

Have fun at the NCOWS event, Troy.

HS grad party for daughter number 2 tomorrow.

I ran track one year in school, was also never at the front of the pack in areal race.... now at practice? I was often near the front, I think that's why the coach kept putting me in races, the other guys were faster, but they weren't putting much effort into thepractice. For me, longer distance was better. At one time I was running low 6 minute times on the mile. In my army days, usually in the 13-14 minute 2 mile range. Pushups, however, Embarrassed usually barely passed the minimum on PT tests, upper body strength was never my thing.

Nowadays.... got "Arthur" living in my hips, and that brief attempt at getting in to shape and joining the Nat Guard about a dozen years ago, trying to do pushups ended up with a torn Rotator, so none of that anymore.

Spent yesterday on our first September event.  Bunches of craft and vendor booths were explored (including my annul donation the Wounded Warriors support group – one of these years I’ll win that Shelby Cobra).  Had 23 rib cookers from across the country.  This year tried the menu from Texas Outlaw.  Good meaty ribs and a great sauce!  Have to wait ‘til Monday to find out how they did overall.

Next up is this coming early Friday morning for the Great Reno Balloon Races.

Afternoon all.

Spent most of the morning splitting my time between cleaning the yard and trying to get out of cleaning the yard.   Roll Eyes

Finally convinced the YouTube fairies to cooperate, so now I have my new video up, and the second is uploaded and is set to automatically go up tomorrow at 7am.  We'll see if it actually does. Smiley
