290/1000

Not a lot of warm up time today. Need to go get a nice 100 for a few days in a row.

Slowly getting closer. I need to warm up anyway and an easy 5 minute spin does the trick.

An interesting thing about Facebook…

An interesting thing about Facebook is that 10 years ago it prompted you “Paul is…” and then you just did a brief blurb. No news, no stories, limited photos. As a result I get blurbs like this from 10 years ago that I cannot really decode anymore.

I assume I was caught in a rainstorm of some type. Or maybe went running?

I finished reading “The First…

I finished reading “The First Law Series” recently. You can find info on Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/series/43644-the-first-law. I enjoyed the series for the most part. I panned & scanned on a lot of the battle pages but somehow I wound up liking the characters across this trilogy. We have an anti-hero that never quite gets his heart of gold. A berserker warrior who most of the time seems kind of old and crusty, and a heartless female warrior who was really well written I thought.

My gripes? The ending. It just left me cold and bored and wondering why do authors not partner with others? For instance I love Neal Stephenson’s writing but half the time his endings are just a huge let down (looking at you “Baroque Cycle”).

One hundred pushups

I’m still looking for a better program but while I look I’m embarking on this one again.

The problem with this one is the ramp around week 3. Too steep.

After many years of using…

After many years of using the Reddle theme on my WordPress site I’ve decided to shift to the “famous”* P2. I want something light, easy, as simple to use as Facebook for example but of course I want to own/control/retain the data myself vs. having Facebook do it. Will anyone else show up to collaborate with me? Probably not. I’ve also thought about moving most of my content to a separate space and restricting access so I can enjoy the things I like about Facebook (discussions, photos, keeping up with distant/former friends) without the bad stuff.

Give me a shout if you’re interested in talking more about this.
