Today for my 44 I tried a new to me move – a football stomp with an axe jump (plyo jack). The football stomp is basically fast feet for about 5 seconds and then you do a plyo jack.
(Still can’t figure out why all the early morning videos are so yellow – better do some playing around with my camera!) This was a fun 44 and it went really quickly!
I haven’t been running a lot lately (mental block & babying my Achilles) but thought I should get in a few more runs in the next week and a half so that’s what I did this morning.
The run was great – I did 6 miles at a quick pace and then an easy 1.75 miles for 61:00 total minutes of running. (1.5% incline) Hopefully another couple of runs will happen in the next week and then it will be time to see what I’m made of!!!
As you all know, Chris is a pilot for the United States Air Force – he is in the Kansas Air National Guard. For 27 years he has served our country.
Now, thanks to a very unsettled government, there are many military and other government people who are being furloughed and are looking at a few days, weeks, whatever the time period ends up being, of not getting paid.
And, with a shut- down there should at least be some extra days off.
Here was the conversation between Chris and I last night:
Kim: I think the US military should stage a walk-out if they aren’t going to get paid.
Chris: That’s against the law.
Kim: The law made by the same government that is now not paying you?! Oh – well that seem’s
fair completely RIDICULOUS!!!
Obviously I tend to exaggerate things a little since (supposedly) the military will still get paid.
So – yesterday I said I was thankful that Chris still had a job – and I am. However, I’m not thankful for the way things are being handled in our country right now. Just my very un-educated point of view on the matter!!!
And, for the record, I think that all government employees should stage a walk-out!!!
