Zombie 5k Week One

See My Experience with All The Weeks Here:

Week One

First morning running the zombie 5 k training.  It's  a lot different  than the coutch to 5k. I'm liking it.  You walk for 1 minute run for 15 seconds.  It doesn't sound like much, but it's harder than I expected. When it was over, I felt really good.  I don't love running, but I love the way I feel when I at least attempt running regularly.

The story line is minor - it doesn't interfere much, and it plays your playlist between talks.  It might all make more sense if you watch The Walking Dead, but that's just a guess.  I tried two episodes of that show and would rather be eaten by zombies, or run, than sit through another.  Zombies are really not my thing.  Even so, this is interesting, simply in that it is different.  I've done the c25k so many times, I was ready for something different.
I used the accelometer, Dan used the GPS mode.  His recorded that he went 2.18 miles.  Mine says 6km - over 3 miles.   We weren't together the whole time, but I'm pretty certain his is closer to correct.  I switched mine to gps/miles for next time.  (The horses were out when I got up this morning,  so I was running late & didn't have time to look at the app settings before I left.)

Compared To The C25K Program:
Brisk five-minute warmup walk.
 Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.

Replacing The Broken Glass on Our Patio Table -

We have horrible winds here.  One storm picked up our large patio table & smashed it sideways against the deck railing, shattering the glass top.
After looking at a couple of options, I bought a piece of plywood (they cut it to size for me even) and a remnant of linoleum from our local flooring store.
We should have sealed the plywood with an all weather paint first. 
Then we attached the linoleum with contact glue.  The entire project cost me about $35 and took minutes to complete. :-)

Homiletics Worksheet

One of my favorite seminars at BSF was on Homiletics.  I love the process of studying the bible through Homiletics.  Recently my friend Natalie taught our Sunday School class how to do homiletics, and again I found I really enjoyed the process, and I decided I wanted to use it more frequently.

There is a great "Crash Course In Homiletics" here -
Earlier this summer our Pastors wife suggested, in our Womens Sunday School Class, that we choose one epistle and read it every day, for a month.  I love this bible reading plan.  I have used many plans over the years, and have read the bible cover to cover a few times now, so the idea of really learning one epistle at a time felt like a good next step for me.
For the month of August, I am reading Colossians every day.  It is only 4 chapters, a quick, easy read every morning.  I decided the 4 chapters made it perfect to use homiletics for my weekly study, doing one chapter each week…

How to Make a Chalkboard Graphic

I'm going to assume you already have a basic knowledge of some sort of graphics program.  Gimp is free.  I use Paint Shop Pro - because I have used it for many years, and I lack the attention span (& budget!) to keep up with photoshop.
