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.
