I'm doing the 5's

Being a former Marine can do strange things to you, I attribute my new exercise regimen to the Marine Corps, I call it, "Doing the 5's".

I get off work at 5:30, walk home and go to the gym before 6, run 5K on the treadmill, then grab 5 pound weights in each hand and do a cool down walk at 5% grade, thus, doing the 5's!

I'm surprised I can still run 3 miles (Give or take 5K) but hardly at my old Marine Corps run times. I look back and can't hardly believe I was once able to run 3 miles at an average time of 21 minutes.

The Upgrade Downgrade Continues

Still no luck getting our Internet service upgraded to 2MB. The apartment wants to send their phone tech out again as "There is something wrong with the phone line", when there is NOTHING wrong with the phone line, the problem is nobody from the apartment management has submitted a request to the phone company to upgrade our service.

We'll see what happens tomorrow.
