As I promised Jody yesterday I did my workout on Stanton Hill. How many times can go up & down in 30 minutes. Last time I did 18. Yesterday I did 19, excellent. Actually, I did 20 times in 30:03 minutes. Missed getting 20 trips in by THREE seconds. Ok, I'm good with that. Nineteen is still a new PR for me and next time I just have to be 3 seconds better for another new PR. Until next time Stanton, until next time.
Nickles, why did I give you a picture of a hat with nickles in it? Well, them are my counting nickles for when I go up & down Stanton Hill. The first time I did this hill I realized I was going to lose count of the number of trips. Around the third or forth trip up I was gasping, clawing for air, and counting I had no energy for. So that time I used my blackberry phone, I keep it with me when I workout in case I vapor lock and drop so hopefully someone can call for help; each time I got back down I updated a note in the blackberry. It worked for that time, but fumbling with the keys while also navigating the walking on rippled terrain was not fun. Plus it broke my concentration; not good.
Enter the nickles. Each time since I have taken 20 nickles with me, they fit nicely in one hand. Every time I get back down from a trip up I drop one in the hat. When i have dropped all 20, I am done. Works like a champ. Well, almost. Yesterday I missed with the hat with one of the nickles and kicked
it with my foot. It landed some 10 yards away on the soccer field. Finding it was 'fun' when I was all done, but find it I did.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
