60 minutes in the gym & music

I spent another few hours today at school. I was able to get through another filing cabinet and get rid of a handful of old books. Now, I am not one to throw away books, but when there are books on a shelf with copyrights spanning from 1954-1972, pages ripped, and coloring on some pages, I just had to toss them. They weren't worth saving. Now, if I can get the approval to have a few large items taken from my room, I can actually start re-arranging and getting things organized.

Afterwards I went to the gym. I wanted to get in a good run with some sprints, and then a heavy duty lift session working on arms and legs. By gosh, that is just what I did. Hopefully the lifting today won't affect my swim and pushups tomorrow!

As for the rest of the day, my Dad is in town on business and I look forward to joining him for dinner, a few drinks, and possibly catch the Twins game on tv. They beat the White Sox last night, who are in first place in the AL Central Division; Twins are in second. I am looking forward to them doing it again tonight... and the next.... and the next!

BTW, I don't know how many of you really look at my sidebar. I try to update the video every other day or so with a variety of music that I love to listen to .... if you are looking for something new. What I have up today is one of my favorite punk bands, Something Corporate ... enjoy.

ORN: 3.3 miles, 35:26, avg. 10:44/mile
(there were some definite sprinting going on)
Strength Training (ST) - arms & legs

I would give those books the stamp of approval as well.

But lately I would give a lot of things the stamp of approval for the trash can...I just finished moving and I always seem to throw a ton of things out while moving.

I always have the sound off, so I don't check out the music. My loss, huh?

And I love the video!
