Would someone please help me get this dude's crappy music out of my head? Every morning, when I go down to the work cafeteria, they are playing one of those stupid "light rock" stations that specialize in workplace music. Invariably, I get some horrid song stuck in my head for way too long. Yesterday it was the damn Goo Goo Dolls, with their song from that Meg Ryan movie where she dies and Nicholas Cage is an angel that lives....*vomit* Today, it's "Endless Summer Nights" by one of the mullet brothers, Dick Marx. (The other being Sir Michael Bolton) Oops, I guess he goes by Richard. Anyone know how to reset the inner jukebox? I gotta reboot this thing. Grrrrrr!

In other news, I had a decent run at lunch. My standard 4.28 mile loop, in 29:22. Not a record pace, but only about 35 seconds off. All this talk about the plank is making me want to try to incorporate it into daily life. The other day Nancy inspired me to do it for as long as possible. After 150 seconds I was shaking like a dog passing a peach pit. I would like very much to get that higher, and not look like I'm in the middle of an earthquake when I'm doing it.

Tomorrow evening it's off to the Atlanta area. I hope to get a nice long run in Saturday afternoon, on the Air Farce base (sorry, fly boys), and then cruise through Sunday until I can come home. If I have internet, I'll be in touch. If not, have a great weekend, and race/train hard!

Edit: A big shout out to my home girl Jess - have a great half this weekend!

Not that running around the AF base isn't fun, but you have a couple of other choices if you have wheels.

Kennesaw Mountain is close by as is the wonderful Silver Comet Trail...

Just passing it along :-)

150 is pretty damn long. No wonder you were shaking.

Dude, that's an aero-mullet! Grow it out like that you're bound to PR that 4.28 loop.

Let's see...if I was trying to get a song out of my head I might start with a little

Can't touch this
Can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh)

J~mom said...

And then if I still had the song in my head I might try a little

My-my-my-my music hits me so hard makes me say oh my Lord
Thank you for blessing me with a mind to rhyme and two hyped feet
It feels good when you know you're down
A superdope homeboy from the Oaktown
And I'm known as such
And this is a beat uh u can't touch

J~mom said...

And then


That's word because you know
U can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh)
Break it down
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh)
Stop Hammer time

J~mom said...

Let me know if that helps.

From a fly boy to a squid :) Enjoy the base, you will do fine, and they do not have easy listening music on an AF Base, so if you want some, you will have to bring your ipod. Have a great weekend.

Marcy said...

No, no, no!! This will totally help :P

Can I touch you there, touch you deep inside
Can I touch your heart, the way you're touchin' mine
Can I touch you there, touch you deep within
Can I touch you there, can I touch you...there

You know you love it. And Michael totally got with the program and FINALLY chopped his mulletude off.

Hotlanta, eh? Have fun homie!

Eric said...

DECENT MY EYE! Dude, that's smokin' fast! Sheesh!

Jess said...

That's the kind of song I probably slow-danced to in middle school -- ahh, the memories!

Have fun this weekend and good luck!

Nikki said...

Peach pits and mullets...ahhhhhhaaaaahahahaaaa!

Have a safe trip and enjoy your weekend.!

(i might have to try a plank, but there is no way I can do 150 seconds)

Lori said...

ROFLMAO Lisa!!! OMG!

I was going to suggest the new musical toothbrushes. I got the kids each one for Christmas and Payton's sings Shake Your Tailfeather...it totally gets stuck in her head all day and cracks my shit up! Does it mean I'm a crappy mom because I laugh at my child's agony? LOL

*added courtesy Payton...
"bend over, let me see you shake your tailfeather
bend over, let me see you shake your tailfeather"

Mendy said...

That's a lot of choices, David to choose from. I'm sure they are better than what you have stuck in your head.

Good on you doing those planks. I'll join you next time.

Gotta Run said...

So you are out of town...looked for your name in the Greenville News 5k run. Now I know why I could not find it.

I am hitting the delete keys for your now. Can some change the music in this town???!!!!!

Running Hoosier said...

from a former fly-boy and seabee (notice I did not say squid), Nancy seems to have gotten the plank fire started through out the blogs. I too am going to incorporate it into my regimen.

I thought to myself, when I saw you last Monday running in the cold, wow, my ass is warm! Thank God for seat warmers...David must be COLD.:oP
You ran by and Gracie said "HEY, that's Grace's daddy!!!! Where's Mendy?" I told her she was smarter than Grace's daddy and inside...with heat. :o)
