Breathe, Praise, Let It Out

The tests never cease.
So, we must stand strong in praise,
And walk on with ease.

HealthyWage Challenge Day 121

Weight: 158 lbs. I ran another 15 miles today. That’s 4 days in a row. (But Wait! There’s more!) Like I said yesterday, I’m not sure why I felt like this would be a good idea. I think I just wanted to prove to myself that I am capable of a lot more than I think. I watched some motivational Navy SEAL stuff, and that made me feel like I had an obligation to push my limits. In particular, there was a story about a guy who hired a SEAL as his trainer. The first night the SEAL made him do as many pull-ups...

Straight To The Punch Line – Truth as 100 Proof

Even when I was a child,
I knew I was the truth.
Mom bought all my school photos,
And they all said proof.

Done in the Dark

It was a face on an easel
Covered in oil,
Staring at the people,
A picture of evil.
It had a greasy smirk
And was the bane
Of the owner’s
Vain existence
Staying ever persistent
In it’s effort
To return the resistance.
Alas,
The pressure, perhaps,
Grew to massive;
The carotid collapsed,
The facade paled,
And Unveiled
What the true brush strokes
Had Painted.

HealthyWage Challenge Day 120

Weight: 159 lbs. I ran another 2 hours today. That’s 3 days in a row. I’m not sure why I felt like this would be a good idea. I think I just wanted to prove to myself I am capable of a lot more than I think. However, after 3 days my legs feel terrible, and it is not really good for weight loss either. I eat too much food to try to recover from the run. Also, I don’t think it would be good for weight loss even if I didn’t eat too much because my body would still be...

If You Can Dodge A Wrench…

Patches O’houlihan
Was caught today
With Criminal amounts
Of clean urine.
He did not dispute.
He politely obeyed;
Yet, sternly conveyed
“It’s sterile,
And I like the taste.”

HealthyWage Challenge Day 119

Weight: 157 lbs. I ran another 2 hours today. I felt pretty good when I woke up despite not getting 8 hours of sleep (I’m not sure that barely ever do, but I only got about 6 last night); however, my legs, my knees, and the tops of my feet have been sore ever since I finished my run. My arches started cramping up when I was coming down the home stretch with about 1 mile left to go, and I felt like I was hitting that infamous marathon wall. However, God willing, I would like to run another 2 hours...
