Disliking someone/thing that you want to like youblueollie

Fri, 26 May 2017 18:08:22 +0000

Recovery day workout thoughts. There are some people and some things that, while you really don’t like them…you still want them to like you. That only applies to a few. Yes, that applies to people. But right now, this applies to an event: the marathon. Yes, running or “speed walking” a marathon is hard work […](image)

Reporters Trump and behaviorblueollie

Thu, 25 May 2017 17:50:21 +0000

Last night, I responded to a Yglesias tweet about the Montana candidate who ended up physically attacking a reporter. I had read the campaign statement and was under the impression that the reporter had crashed a private event. Yes, I know, physical violence is wrong but I still believe that reporters don’t have license to […](image)

Blog post one: Lynnor Special FAILblueollie

Thu, 25 May 2017 17:26:12 +0000

I have a few things to say…more than I had anticipated. So here goes: Workout: it was 52 F outside but my legs were a bit dead. So I went to try a Steamboat 15K simulation indoor, on a track and treadmill. 11:20/10:46 2 miles (lane 2 track) followed by some hills at 5.3 mph..I […](image)

Trump’s budgetblueollie

Wed, 24 May 2017 18:42:35 +0000

Ok, President’s budgets are almost always DOA in Congress. But they do provide some insight into what the administration wants, will sign onto and…yes, competence. And yes, Trump’s budget has a yuge accounting error. This is the kind of mistake you might expect of high school students. But there are other issues. For one, it […](image)

Damn you Father Time…blueollie

Wed, 24 May 2017 16:05:36 +0000

An unrelated post about Track and Field got me to thinking about my own performances. Yeah, they are declining. Reasons: 1. One’s potential decreases with age. Competitive athletes told me that they notice this in their early 30’s. Of course, if one starts later in life, or decides to up the level of their training, […](image)

Forget about Impeaching Trump…for now.blueollie

Tue, 23 May 2017 17:19:58 +0000

If you read my twitter feed, some are under the impression that Trump will be removed from office. Nate Silver does a very detailed analysis and concludes: All that work … and I’m still not going to give you a precise number for how likely Trump is to lose his job. That’s because this is […](image)

Almost felt like a training walk…blueollie

Sun, 21 May 2017 16:09:01 +0000

I did this 15.46 mile walk plus a .73 loop (Bradley to Glenwood, back of Bradley Hall, past the basketball arena, Main, cooper) and the segments were: Out: 1:48:30, back: 1:47:23 (3:35:54 for 15.46) and then 10:10 for the .73 mile loop. The pace was “deliberate” but not “race”. Ok, perfect temperatures, somewhat breezy, but […](image)

My own “triggers” (of knee jerk responses)blueollie

Sat, 20 May 2017 21:11:45 +0000

I’ve often chuckled about “trigger warnings” and snowflakey things in academia. But I have my own “triggers” which, well, set off an illogical knee jerk reaction in me. NO, I don’t need to be “warned” or protected from them. An NO, this is not the same as what is meant by the way the word […](image)
