Day 72/365: I got off my….

well, you get the picture, trying to keep it clean 🙂

One of the things I use on an hourly basis for help in programming is Twitter.  I ask and answer questions all day long and it’s wonderfully helpful.  I tweeted something the other day about getting in shape without running a marathon day 1.  A friend of mine posted http://www.c25k.com/podcasts.htm back and said it was instrumental in getting him out there and keeping him going.

They’re podcasts dictated by a guy named Robert Ullrey – just  a NOCal guy getting off his …well, you know … and sharing his experience with the masses.

They….Are…EXCELLENT!  I have always had problems pushing myself, but when I’m with someone I feel like I have to go their pace, and I don’t know what mine is….  This is cool because you do a 5 minute warm up, then intervals of 60 second runs with 90 second brisk walks for about 20-25 minutes.  Just having him in my ear saying “Here comes your next run, ready?  GO!” and the music jumps up and a faster song comes on.

Me?  I’m part sloth, but when I do get into something, I tend to do pretty well.  I think this is the thing I’ve been looking for to get me moving.  It also didn’t hurt that it was BEAUTIFUL outside today.  Going out during lunch on Thursday, keep me honest!!!
