First Class Eveblueollie

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 03:05:41 +0000

Ok, time to get to bed as classes start tomorrow. I’ve had some interesting political discussion today and…ok, watched a lot of short videos about some of the “100 greatest NFL players” and focused on the linemen, especially the offensive linemen. Workout notes: 5.1 mile Corntalk course; jogged to the start of the dogpark hill, […](image)

Tired and cranky…blueollie

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 18:17:24 +0000

I sometimes get snippy when I am lost in thought (even not-so-profound thoughts) and today I got snippy. I also felt tired, so today was “weights only”: rotator cuff pullups, 4 sets of 10 then one more set of 10 after bench presses. So-so. bench press: 10 x 135, 5 x 190, 8 x 175 […](image)

Great Playoff Games! (for a change)blueolliepackerscatchchiefholdingchiefsholding

You can tell that the games are good when I get nervous watching them…and none of the games involve *my* teams (*) Packers vs. Cowboys: a classic; 3 50+ yard field goals in the final 1:38. The Packers were leading 21-3 in the first half, but the Cowboys rallied to tie it. Here is a […](image)

I saw two women’s games in person, and watched part of the men’s game at Indiana State. Men Fell behind 44-22; rallied in the second half but lost 81-71. If you are 22 points down at the half, you will lose..the vast majority of the time anyway. League leading Illinois State is up (they creamed […](image)

Sluggish 10 mile walkblueollieillinoisriverjan20171illinoisriverjan20172

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 22:44:50 +0000

Today’s 10.1 mile walk took 8 minutes longer than a walk on the same course back on December 29, but it did come after leg work and some intervals two days ago. And this was certainly “comfort, not speed” today. It was just under freezing and there wasn’t much wind. Footing was excellent; almost no […](image)

Weather aches, hypocrisy and footballblueollieruntoremembercrop1

Paul Krugman noted that economic conditions are different (no longer zero interest rates..and companies are interested in borrowing and employment is up) and so we should look at deficits differently. Yes, public investment should be done, but not upper end tax breaks. OF COURSE, the right wing is calling him a hypocrite. And OF COURSE, […](image)

What’s the deal with the ACA Repeal?blueollie

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 21:38:47 +0000

The House followed the Senate and set it up so that most of the ACA could be repealed via “reconciliation rules”, which require only a majority vote in the Senate. This is really just step 1 of the repeal process. Now a bill has to be written up (negotiated, etc.) and then signed into law. […](image)

Glowing shouldersblueollie

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 21:30:10 +0000

Yes, my shoulders have that glow. I slept in and decided to do a weight workout followed by a recovery walk on the treadmill; I don’t know what conditions will be like tomorrow morning (icy roads?) I did weigh at 197 afterward (no shoes, no shorts) and was 201.5 with shoes and shorts beforehand (thank […](image)

Trump: being deliberately divisive in an unprecedented wayblueollieobamabushpoplarity

I’ve never seen anything like it from ANY President Elect from either party in my lifetime: have been allowed to run – guilty as hell. They were VERY nice to her. She lost because she campaigned in the wrong states – no enthusiasm! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 13, 2017 .@CNN is in a […](image)

I am finally getting back on track, in terms of sports. Good thing too, as classes start up again next week. Defined goal: sub 26 5K. I barely made that a year ago. Priorities: running, walking, lifting, add some swimming (say 20 minute swims) Today: 21:50 2 mile, which included 2:15 of 6.7 mph running […](image)
