Twenty Days

Posted by speedygeoff On Monday, March 20, 2006 | 5 comments
There is a feast of swimming and lawn bowls in Melbourne. There is running as well. I’d like to see that.

My progress

last week’s target 110 km, achieved 110 km
this week’s target 100 km
weight 63.5 kg, weight loss 1 kg, total weight loss 3.5 kg
quote of the week "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars". - Les Brown
song of the week Belter, Powderfinger

You go
I feel like dropping bombs between your eyes
But not today

Too slow
I feel like sinking arrows in your mind
You're all the same

You don't have to reveal it
You get trouble concede
You don't have to reveal it

Are you feeling right
Are you feeling right
A defeated sight
Are you feeling right

You go
Soaking up your public appetite
The war you wage

Too slow
I tell you once again you're not my type
You're all the same

Something come along gonna make a change

You don't have to reveal it
You get trouble concede
You don't have to reveal it

Are you feeling right
Are you feeling right
A defeated sight
Are you feeling right

  1. Tie them to your shoelaces! Get some extra balloons and you'll be even lighter.

  2. How about tethering them through some rings through your ears, and the right amount of ballons will give you such a "lift" while running, that it will feel like you are floating over the ground.

  4. After all these and many other not so helpful comments, I have worked out where I will attach the balloons. To another runner while he/she is not looking!
