Bead porn

Wonder what kind of hits I'm going to get with that title?

Does it or does it not look like this bead is covered in wee little breasts? For the right kind of breast-cancer survivor – like, for instance, my neighbor – it will be the perfect focal point for a necklace.

Running Report: 3.5 miles in 50 minutes. I did a quarter-mile walk to warm up and cool down, and ran the middle three miles. It's a wonder I didn't short the treadmill out; I was quite a little puddle of sweat at the end of the workout. Jonathan suggested yesterday I not throw in the towel, but rather use it on these treadmill runs – an excellent suggestion.

[It's really hard to write with that photo staring me in the face as I type. I suppose this must be what it feels like to be a bouncer in a strip joint.]

The run was harder yesterday, but I was determined not to quit before I'd well and truly run three miles. The reason I did the cooldown was because one of the new Dylan tunes ["Thunder on the Mountain"] popped up on the Shuffle. At a little more than five minutes long, it just seemed like the right thing to do.

In other workout news, I'm still not doing any kind of meaningful weightlifting on any kind of meaningful schedule. I guess it will happen when it happens. Every once in a while I pick up the dumbbells and do a few moves, but it's lackluster and, most likely, ineffective. I'd rather concentrate on aerobic fat-busting right now.

I'm planning to use the rowing machine today, for at least 30 minutes and perhaps longer. Then do a 20-minute walk on the treadmill. It would be pushing my luck as far as my foot – or knees! – goes to run for three consecutive days.

You know, you come to a blog thinking it's family-friendly, and then you see giant boob bead porn. What's the world coming to?

OK, for real I never expected this to be family-friendly, and also the bead isn't giant. Just the photo.

3 MILES! WHOOT!

Way to go! I am trying to get healthy too and I keep wanting to be a runner but I really, really dislike it. Still it's such a good, portable workout, I might give it another try.
