Haha! Yup... I like being in the woods. And rarely do I not avail myself of the "facilities."
Good run today.

Your keeping fit with all the building and outdoorsman stuff. Still impressed with the out of the blue 11 min marathon...I was flying today (after 3 mile 'warmup') and all I could manage was 11+ a mile with another 16 to go! Enjoy the outdoors. I love the outdoors...when I'm golfing, doing yard work, doing my walking or running...and especially when I'm indoors...haha.

It just occurred to me this week it has been 40 years since I ran a marathon this fall. As far as I can recall the last completed marathon was the Twin Cities Marathon (speaking of poop I think I had to pop into a port a poop porta potty)...and I think we ran the Copper Something (Harbor) 50 miler the next week. I can't even remember my full marathon career...think I finished 9 or 13 but I sure can't remember 13 starts...and that would be a lot of marathons by the age of 25!

9.67...wow. I'm wiped out the rest of Sunday after my 10 milers...and I had a stretch in summer of 6 or more weeks of 9 miles up to 13 so it's not like I have not done a lot of them the past 6 months...around ten runs of 9 or more so you would think I would be tougher especially in our cooler weather that is a month ahead of schedule. Good job. I really think LSD is the way to go for older athletes...you can build up your body and heart slowly and within a safe range of exertion.

Right now I would rather attempt a 50 miler or longer with my shuffle jog walk stuff than run a marathon at not much quicker pace but be blow away by a bunch of fat youngsters that will be restricted to armchairs by the time they are our age.

Well it will be interesting what happens to your body/arms after you do your 114,013 pushups. Guess you won't need an axe you'll just pull the trees down in the future...if you are farming for tree sap you'll just jab your finger into the tree instead of have to auger/drill one.

Good luck Paul (Bunyan).

Wait... where do you get that number.
I'm no insurance genius, but wouldn't it be 36,000 pushups?

I just made it up...I'm a artististic exercise engineer-scientist-entrepreneur...I can't be bothered by things like facts and correct numbers. :) Actually I'm going to go into producing some presently unknown product...the advertising will go something like this..."We promise you our product will more or less cure cancer, clean up the environment, balance our national budget, regrow your hair, increase your IQ by 114.9334 percent, and make you wealthy within 3 years or your money back (less our standard operating fee's of course) as long as you did not actually USE the product.

36,500 I think. Anyway, may the great push up angel help you on your quest to the path of nirvana and fitness.

That was a good 4+ miler.
