The skies are overcast and we have light rain showers outside. Temps are predicted to climb up into the low to mid 60s (F) today. That will be nice. Tomorrow, however, they're going to tank, though the definition of tanking is relative when you take into account how warm it's been this winter. For us, the mid 40s (F) means our temps are tanking.
Rather than riding the bike, I've been spending a lot of time on the treadmill. Usually I keep the speed at a fast walk, between 3.6 and 3.8 mph, but I've been increasing the incline to over 5% so I'm walking fast up a continual hill. Believe me, you don't need to run to get a good cardio workout. An interesting side effect is that my Garmin Fenix 6 tracks that incline as a staircase, so a 2.5 mile walk will show me going up 45 flights of stairs.
Milky Chance released their first song of their next album. That will be available in June. Here's the song, Living in a Haze. Can we talk about versatility? They go from singing about smoking pot in Colorado to wanting to be a disco boy in this song. Enjoy.
For those who didn't see it, and I'm one of those, Merrick Garland was testifying yesterday in front of some Republican hack committee trying to prove one of their conspiracy theories. I did watch a clip where that buffoon Ted Cruz accused the DOJ of leaks regarding to photos from the Mar a Lago raid. When Garland pointed out that the photos Cruz was using as a reference hadn't been leak, rather they had been part of a press release, the buffoon quickly played his 'no further questions,' card.
Chuck Schumer and Hakeem Jeffries sent a letter to Rupert Murdoch asking that Fox not air their re-edit clips of the January 6 attack on the the capital in order to avoid further violence. I don't doubt that Rupert is not in a happy place right now. With that letter being publicized, should Fox go ahead and air anything that incites violence, they will be to blame. They may shriek Freedom of Speech, buy any and all public disorder will be laid upon their doorstep. And, of course, there is the Dominion law suit. You can that's going to play into old Rupert's decision, he's already on record as saying Fox out and out lied about the election. I hope he's enjoying this haze he's put himself into and wonder if all he really wants to do right now is be a disco boy.
Well done on upping the ante on the treadmill!!!! When I go to the gym I only use the stationery bike and I STILL haven't got off beginner level!ReplyDelete
Stationary bikes are great for cardio!Delete
Ohhh pot and disco? Sign me up!ReplyDelete
I did see Merrick schooling the idiots. It was glorious. The Repugs are all grandstanding, showboating and fuckery. Hate them all.
I am here waiting for Faux News to be dragged with a hefty fine and hopefully partial destruction.
Colorado is a really good song. So is this one. And so many are waiting for Fox to pay the price. That will be a joyous day when it happens.Delete
I guess we have been tanking all winter because we got a few inches of snow yesterday and are supposed to get more this weekend. Yuck!ReplyDelete
Look on the positive side of snow... it's free cardio.Delete
Fox is complicit in 1/6 because of their perpetuating the Big Lie when they all admit now that they didn't believe it.ReplyDelete
And to think, it was all done for ratings.Delete
