I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Arrived at my house between 1:00 – 1:30 p.m. this afternoon.

Less than 24 hours!! That’s fucking sick! My Garmin is fucking sick (so’s the $ I paid)!!

I’m an 8K a day guy!!

… every morning, everyday!! Ain’t easy at times, but I haven’t missed a single day since I began. Am posting a few RunKeeper pics … funny enough, my first two attempts were my best (maybe my body needs a break), and I did manage to squeak under 40 minutes on my second run, but the GPS shortchanged me on the distance, didn’t credit it for a full 8K. I did time myself once for half my circuit, and was under 20 minutes (while being a tad over 4K), putting me under the 5 minute per km barrier … but, as you can clearly see, I’m more of a 5:05/km runner. Ain’t the fastest fucker … but certainly ain’t no slowpoke either. I’ve NEVER been a runner, NEVER considered myself a runner, so now starting something so hardcore strenuous at my advanced age, AND, meanwhile achieving these times … well, let me say … am as proud as the proverbial motherfucking peacock!!

RunKeeper

Downloaded this app last week, and this was a trial walk (not run) … a brisk walk. Great app, very useful and helpful. Here’s my results minus the route GPSed … wouldn’t want any fellow bloggers banging down my door.
