Sunday’s workout: 8 miles; 1:22:27
today’s workout: Biggest Loser Cardio max DVD; 50 minutes

I don’t have my Garmin with me so I can’t give you splits from Sunday, but no worries. They weren’t too impressive. I tried my hardest to stay around 10:15 minute miles and it was hard on the hills. I’m getting better with keeping pace at slight, long hills. But I can’t seem to manage the short, steep hills. *sigh* It’s so frustrating. I mean, I run up Mt. Everest (didn’t know it was in the ‘burbs of Maryland, did ya??) almost every Sunday and it always punches me in the face.

This morning I completed the entire Cardio Max DVD. wowzzas. That is all I have to say about that.

Since it’s Monday and I’m tired I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Ryan Adams songs, “Wildflowers”. Listen to this song. It’s so good. This weekend I read that he might do an acoustic tour this fall. Um, heck ya! Do it, buddy! Acoustic Ryan Adams is the Ryan Adams I fell in love with back in 2001. I accept his “Magjik” phase, but I’d really rather not talk about it.

Instead, I like to think about the summer when my college roomie, Jessica, and I traveled to see him in two different states in three days. That summer included the following:

  • me not being able to look at Ryan Adams while he was 15 feet away from me on the sidewalk
  • me semi-stalking Ryan Adams in a mall
  • me leaving Jessica pale-faced and sick to keep my front row spot right in front of Ryan Adams (she understood, such a good friend)
  • Jessica hitting the guy next to her because I complained he was on his cell phone when Caitlin Cary walked on stage to perform with Ryan Adams in a Whiskeytown mini-reunion (she got him off the phone!)

Such fond memories.

In the meantime, enjoy one of my favorite songs about New York by my all-time favorite musician, Ryan Adams!

workout: 3.33 miles/32:36

mile 1: 9:57
mile 2: 9:50
mile 3: 9:46
.33 mile: 9:12

Why? Are those negative splits in 80 degree weather on no sleep for the past two days??? YES! My run wasn’t particularly interesting, but I did find new places to eat, besides McDonalds, on the other side of the conference center here in Orlando.

I’m tired of being stuck around three miles lately, but it’s all I have time for right now. Maybe tomorrow morning I’ll have time for four miles? I hope so. Although I should just be happy I get to run at all!

Now, as the title of this post mentions, it’s song time. My iPod knows me so well, that when it’s on shuffle, it tends to play a lot of Ryan Adams and Jesse Malin, two of my favorite artists. But yesterday on the plane, it randomly played “One Day” by Matisyahu. I downloaded this song months ago and forgot I had it. After it played, I repeated it a few times to listen to the lyrics closer. It’s been stuck in my head ever since and I’ve decided that it’s the perfect song for this blog.

Matisyahu sings of hope and a peaceful world. Just the beat makes you feel good! Enjoy it!
