~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Onto the important stuff. Last night I did hill repeats. Pretty good stuff Another circuit workout. 5 hill repeats and in between each one we did a set of push ups, lunges, squats, some other thing that I don't know the name of (just like the other workout). Interestingly, the hill repeat after the sets of push ups was by far the hardest. Which was odd, because it didn't involve any leg strength. I guess it illustrates how much your core is engaged while running. My heart rate maxed out at 192. I think if there was a competition and whoever had the highest rate rate won - I would easily take that title. What is up with that? Total: 3 miles (but it felt like 10!)/1351 ft elevation gain Swim this morning: 200 w/up 600 free 200 kick (no fins) 200 IM 200 pull 200 free ~ 400 fly kick (w/fins)* *I have decided I am going to learn how to butterfly. I guess I'll start by watching you tube vids. Any helpful tips?

Rants & Raves...and workouts
What I am about to say might alienate some of you and drive you away from reading my blog, but just know this - I have listened to a shitload of comments that I either consider ignorant or that I just disagree with regarding politics, and though most of it makes my skin crawl, I respect you and your opinions enough to keep following. As a staunch individualist I disagree with the majority of America right now on most issues, and I despise DESPISE people who are head-over-heels in love with Obama (Obomunists), or any politician for that matter. I don't think it's a coincidence that the drivers holding up traffic usually have Obama bumper stickers -- bottom line, I think people who trust politicians are idiots. Contrary to popular believe, the sun does not shine out of his ass. Ok, if your still with me...it's sad when people die. MJ, Farrah, Ed -- whatever. Unless you won the publishers clearing house, chances are none of these people changed our lives in any noteworthy way. It's crazy the headlines are saturated with this nonsense that in no way shape or form will really affect America. It's always a little crazy when someone we "know" passes, but meanwhile the socialist in office are passing some pretty crazy shit RIGHT NOW. Hello -- does anybody know the House is voting on Cap and Trade today? Ok, this is not a politico blog, and I certainly don't want to alienate any of my followers. It just sickens me that the mainstream is so obsessed with pointless shit and that there is no debate in America anymore. And yes, I am boycotting ABC. Which is a shame because I was really into the Bachelorette. End Rant
