Welp, this will be my last post here. I finally got a blog working on my main site sonofwau.com. So all future updates will be there.
Just a word of warning about the site, the RSS works, but not for chrome. I don't have safari to test that, but I assume since IE and Firefox work that Safari will.
As for the old posts here...I'll probably move them over to the new blog slowly. At least the important ones, wow ones and really random ones (like the ones where I whine about not posting enough) I might not move.
So I can run 2.1mi in 29min. I'm not entirely sure if I'm happy about this or saddened by it. On one hand that's a lot more than I could do earlier this week...on the other hand that's a long way away from 1.5mi in <13min (the end goal).
Also to clarify not all of that is running. 4min walk, 8min jog, 4min walk, 8min jog/run, 3-5min walk back to the apartment. Next week is 4/9/4/9/3-5. And then the week after that (finally) will be 4 walk/13 run/3-5 walk. After I do that for a week I start picking a day of the week and try to improve running speed.
The ideal goal would be to do a 5k sometime next spring in <20min. Failing that I wanna do it in <25min. I mean, Rusty can do one in <30 and if someone that old can do it a youngster like me should be able to whip it out in no time.
Also: overall blog changes coming soon! They'll be shiny!
So, in response to a pseudo challenge from Dammerung and just because Rusty keeps posting his here is a rough breakdown of what I do:
5mi bike ride in the morning (five miles kinda sounds impressive, but it's not.
23 pushups in one minute (my wife wasn't there to insure that I was perfect form but I think I was)
1.5mi run/walk in ~20min
I'll probably start posting other sorts of stuff now too. But until then: school takes lots of times, the whole real life thing outside of school takes lots of time, and Civ5 is amazing at filling in that in between portion.
Ah how things can change in a year. This time last year I still thought of myself as a WoW player (though a very passive one). Two years ago and I was a heavy player! And now? Now I rarely think of it, unless someone brings it up in conversation. And even then I don't miss the game. I miss the people, but not the game itself.
What brings this up? Well, I decided to clean up my blogroll. While a number of them were just gone (like Nas's blog), others I just didn't care about anymore. Actually I think pretty much all the ones I removed were by people who weren't posting. Except one where the link was broken and had gone unfixed because I didn't care.
Why bother with a past that I don't care about, and practically no one who reads this cares about? Well, that's because I'm a sucker for things nostalgic. Give me enough time and I will miss even the crappiest of jobs, or even friends (though I've had blessedly few of those).
Hmm, I need to update my google reader for Scott's new blog, dang people and their blog moving! *shakes fist*
Anyone curious about the rambling nature of this post? Well, mostly it's 'cause I'm at work and have no work to do. At all.
Oh! One last call out, if anyone reading this is really familiar with linux holler at me. Working on setting up my computer with Suse and having some issues with it.
P.S. If anyone has beaten Starcraft 2 on hard holler at me. I'm stuck on the last protoss mission.
