So far I've got 9 songs out of the 20 new songs for my challenge. It's hard work thinking up songs. Thanks for the suggestions - I already have heaps of RATM and Pistols on my ipod though since they both rock :)
Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen
From Small Things (Big Days One Day Come) - Bruce Springsteen
Held Up Without A Gun - Bruce Springsteen
My Pants Keep Falling Down - Frenzal Rhomb
Sometimes - Spearhead
Alright - Supergrass
Fee Fi Fe Fum - Candy Girls
X-Files Theme - Triple X
Okay, the last two are dance music, even though I hate it. I found a CD of dance tracks from 1996 or so that I'd borrowed off a friend (which is why you should never loan me CDs) and thought I'd bung them on. I downloaded some Sleater Kinney but a lot of it's slower than I thought. Everything else I've thought of, I can't find. Will go raid friend's CD collections on the weekend.
I think I mentioned before that I've suspended my Fitness First membership. So today I looked up the timetable for my cheap and basic gym up the road and found out they are doing a women's bootcamp program. I rang about it and the next starts after Easter. Perfect, because I think I'll need a new challenge after the Run for the Kids. The price is right too - $100 plus the normal $3.95 gym entry. The downside is that it's on at 6.30 am. I'm not a morning person. The trainer sounds great too - she's also training for the R4TK atm. I think the sign that you've become a real runner is not anything to do with running times or distances, but when you get happy about finding someone new to talk running to.
I did no exercise apart from a bit of yoga today. Lately, I've not had the time or inclination to work through a whole yoga dvd so I've just been doing some of the sequences I remember from classes. When I do a class or dvd, I get all caught up in trying to keep up or worrying what comes next whereas just doing stuff myself, I focus more on getting the posture right and my breathing and all those things I should be thinking about. I'm thinking of grabbing some books from the library and doing more stuff just on my own.
I was going to clean the bath and have a soak but remembered I throw out my epsom salts cos they'd got all icky. Damn it. I want salts to soak in. A bath might be nice anyway.
Boot Camp sounds like a great idea but I have to agree with you on the time though, 6.30am sounds a bit rude, lol!
Agree about how great when you find another runner. It's amazing the people at my work that I've found out are runners, and I had no idea until I started myself. I have done two boot camps and they are great. I was too late registering for the last one and missed out. Go for it I'd say.
Several songs on teh footloose sound track that have a great beat.
Hey, what does Yoga do for you exercise wise? I hear lots of people talking about it, but have never tried it. Do tell...
The running sounds like it's going great guns. I'm loving the muscly calves. You gotta love a bit of muscle.
The bath sounds nice. I've moved into a new place and there is no bath - just a shower. How I long for a bath!!!
YAY for finding another running buddy to talk to. I get excited when I meet other yogis :-)
