2017 Summer June 27 Tuesday

74 degrees this morning, 34:02 minute walk, weights etc.

Nice coolish walk this morning but not cold. While 74 degrees may not seem cold, remember this is early morning, so cold is colder than it is during the day. Vey pleasant this morning.

Pace was 10 seconds faster than my goal. While I’m glad i was 10 seconds below my goal, I feel like I should be doing a faster pace. As I mentioned before, my goal is so slow I am embarrassed to disclose it.

On the other hand, maybe I need to change my goal to, say, 30 seconds faster? Since I would rarely meet it (or never), it could be a true “goal” since I never reach it. It I changed it to a minute faster, it may be a true “goal” because the chances are I never would meet it, so it would be a true “goal”.

On the other hand, maybe my current goal for “pace” is about right, since sometimes I exceed it and sometimes I don’t. As a “daily” goal, it may be good to have something I can achieve!

What the heck, I’ll think about it, tomorrow is another day or something like that as Scarlett O’Hara said in “Gone With the Wind”.

I actually have an Audio Book of “Gone With the Wind”, I believe it is 49 hours. It would be the longest book I have listened to other than “War and Peace” which is 60 hours.

I actually started listening to War and Peace, but it got garbled and somehow the story line got interchanged and, as I was already about 30 hours into it, I never started it again. To my surprise, I actually enjoyed it. With the new App I could, and probably will listen to it without any problem.

Based on an average of 3 hours per week of listening, it would take me 20 weeks to listen to War and Peace or about 16 weeks to listen to Gone With the Wind.

I’ll see. Right now I am about 10 books behind on my listening. I only listen to non-fiction on my walk and fiction in the car. Not a solid rule, just the way it turns out, although several years ago I did listen to a fiction book while walking and enjoyed it. I believe it was “Lonesome Dove”. I also listened to the trilogy “Edge of Eternity” while walking. (The wonders of computers and how easy it is to access your records!

Sometime I will listen to Stephen King’s “It”, but I doubt that I should listen to it while I walk in the dark! As I previously noted, I read it when I was by myself (and in the stage of reading most of the night) and I actually got hip to check the drains. (You have to read the book to know what I mean!)

I was able to successfully (I think) “pair” my iPhone 5 we use as an audio player to the car. Success over technology (I hope and we’ll see today!)

That’s it for now, Tuesday, June 27, 2017.
