Knee Update

My knee is pretty much fully recovered now. I ran 4.5 miles today. I went pretty slow though – averaging an 11 minute pace for the first 3 miles then 13-14 minute pace for the next 1.5. I did run some sprints though which I am happy about. My goal is to get back down to a 9 minute average pace then push hard to get it under 8 minutes for the full distance.

I put on some weight while I was injured and now weigh 210. Prior to my injury, I ranged from 200-205. I think I need to maybe start using MyFitnessPal again to track my calories as I tend to eat a lot. Probably also make sure I am not eating after 6 or 7 pm.

Great People

I am very fortunate to work with many great team members and clients on a daily basis. I am especially appreciative of those team members who have worked with me for years and shown high levels of commitment; generally these folks also make the most compensation too.

Life is Good

Be grateful you don’t live in prehistoric times when live was violent, painful, and short. Be happy you aren’t suffering from cancer or another terrible disease. Appreciate that you have entertainment even kings forty years ago couldn’t access. Love those around you.

Public Voting Records

All voting record should be public. This way people can validate that the Russians have not stolen an election. I think it’s also important for people to share their opinions publicly if they have them and to be open to hearing counter-arguments from other people. That is how democracy and republics work.

Traitor Trump

Now even Fox News and the New York Times agree Trump shows traitorous behavior in his secret meetings with Putin. Trump came out after and publicly criticized and questioned America’s defenders side by side in a news conference with America’s greatest current enemy.

Rising Early

I have been waking up early again. I did this a while ago when I was programming every day for 8-12 hours. I have started doing it now as I am sometimes golfing before work from 6 am to 9 am. My body is feeling quite sore as I have been golfing either before or after work for nine straight days. My game is improving I think.

My leg is recovering muscle still from my injury.
