Could walking improve running?

Since I started the new assignment I bop around the building walking probably faster than I should to the tune of about 25 minutes a day. I was out of running shape previously and last month had a hard time going my normal speeds for norma times on the treadmill. The other day I hopped on and busted a move that was about a about personal best with little adverse reaction. I also just make sure to climb about 15-20 floors of stairs a day  (i.e. take the long way back in stairwells) when time permits often going from the basement to the fourth floor at a go, then walking fast to my wing , then trotting back down by my desk ( 2-3 times a day). When I started I would be somewhat winded at the top and worry about sounding like a panting elephant walking across the 4th floor, now today I did it fairly easily and didn’t huff or puff much. I do believe little cheat extras repeated make a big difference.

By Request. Top:My hideous self with the 3 children I live for taken by the wife I live for. Middle: My cute ass newborn baby girl (or so everyone who can’t stop holding her tells us)Taken Friday by our photographer friend. Bottom: My son (by same friend Friday too). I brag on my cute firstborn daughter all the time and have now for 6 years, but its time to say for the record that my son is the most fantastic little boy, and frankly the cutest little mf there ever was lol. How all this cuteness came from me I’ll never know, but it did. Pretty sure…. yeah it did lol.

Athletes - The Second Summer Youth Olympic Games, Nanjing 2014

I didn’t know this existed! Why is USA not involved. This event for 3600 kids 15-18 gets my complete support. Go CANADA (since USA for some insane reason is not involved.) I will watch this all week.The opening ceremony was fantastic.

Back home in Texas. I had a great trip seeing the extended Family and was taken for a beautiful day to someplace to run called Castle Island and another at NantASSket Beach (sp) where I learned how all the females put the Ass in Massachusetts lol. It was a nice get away but good lord those poor folks need to move to a state that isn’t such a vacuum for your cash. Property Taxes $1000 a 1/4, Gas 50 cents too high. Ciggs double price. State income tax fuggetaboutit. Paying someone else to recycle trash, pfffft.  Knowing you are going back to live in the Great Republic of Texas… Priceless.

I am entering another dimension...

Heading to Boston tomorrow night to get this baby baptized in the family church with the wife’s family around… (see above), and to let them all see each other again. This is assuming my 6 y.o. , who was exceptionally ill today, recoups enough. 5 days and nights of being surrounded by people who speak a different language and think 80’s is warm! SMH. I love her kinfolk though. Always a good time. Coffee at dunkie’s and trips to the packy and the glacieresque Cape Cod Atlantic are on the agenda though lol.
