Day 298 (T, 111025) — Songs that Get Me Pumped, Part 2

Music Helps. Number two in the series of the songs that get my blood pumping.

Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies.  One of those crazy punk songs from back in the day.  I thought I was so IT listening to this stuff.

Despite my delusions of cool, the song is still fun,  funny, and tight.

Here Comes Sickness by Mudhoney.  I saw them play at Castaic Lake near LA in 1992 with Sonic Youth and Pavement.  Kurt Cobain even came out and played with them a bit.

The pit at that show was on sand and there was so much dust kicked up I could hardly breathe (in addition, of course, to the crush of a few hundred bodies around me).

[Do you do torrents?  If so, here is a recording of that show. I haven’t downloaded it so proceed at your own risk.]

Blister in the Sun by The Violent Femmes.  I was introduced to this song as a freshman in college.

I got to see them play this tiny little bar made of a few double-wide trailers hooked together.  (Mississippi.  Go figure. ;-))  Still, it was a helluva show.

Health-wise, this period was one of the worst in my life: I started smoking.  I gained 20-25 pounds.  I lazed around and bitched about having to walk about the whole third of a mile or so across campus to classes, etc.  Boy was I a winner.

(Hells . . . at least I survived to become the SuperJohn I am now!  ROFLMAO!)

More tomorrow . . . .

Exercise.  Yesterday’s Ups testing day was a success: for each exercise, I hit a good mark.

Exercise Max Rep Results
Pull-ups
3
Sit-ups
100
Push-ups
100
50 lbs. Kettlebell Swings
20

Review (from Yesterday).  I did the kettlebell swings last and I could tell it was gonna be tough. I probably could have done a few more but I wimped out.

I pretty well on my push-ups, with only a few seconds of rest during the whole set.

The pull-ups still sucked, but at least I got the three I needed to move on to the JV level.

Of all the exercises, I was surprised that the sit-ups seemed to be the easiest. They still killed me by the very end, but getting there seemed to be smoother than the other sets.

Plan for Week 43.

Day Fast? SCD? Run/Exer?
Sunday No No No
Monday Yes Yes Yes
Tuesday Yes Yes No
Wednesday Yes Yes Yes

Red = a negative deviation | Green = a positive deviation | Blue = a note
