Zombie 5k Week Three

See My Experience with All The Weeks Here:

I need to figure out how to use google voice to record my thoughts on my drive home, and convert them to text.  I'm working on that.  It's so insanely busy around here, getting ready for football season, and our sons wedding, I am not making the time to write down my thoughts after a work out as frequently as I would like.  
I don't know what is up with the pace?
Using a calculator, I come up with 18.50 a mile.  Better than week two!

44.33 divided by 2.31 is 19.28 - not 23.26?  
I'm not sure why the pace is not calculating correctly.  Unless that's my pace when I hit stop mission?

Overall, I am truly loving this program.  So much.  
I don't like to pay for apps.  I paid $1.99 for this one, and honestly, it is worth so much more.  This is like a $10 app.  Really.  It's worth it.

Two and 1/4 miles in 43 minutes?  I walk faster than that.  It is frustrating for me - last year I was jogging this entire path, this year I can't even jog full sections of the exact same path.  Mostly I am having trouble breathing, but today my muscles hurt too.  I'm starting to think I should start the program over.  I feel like i"m just to the point of fitness where if I did this again now I could maybe do it "right"?  I worry that I walk WAY too much of the free run portions.  I'm feeling certain that at the end of eight weeks there is no way I will be running 3 miles.

But every step in this program is so much better than nothing at all - even if I don't do it well enough, at least I'm trying.  I can always start again once I finish it.  I won't give up - but I do hope I can do better.

Compared to the C25K Program:
Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following:
  • Jog 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
  • Walk 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
  • Jog 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
  • Walk 400 yards (or three minutes)
(at this point, I don't think I could complete the training above.)

  1. Hmmm, not understanding what app you are using but it is definitely off. Have you looked into using something else to track yourself? #wowlinkup

  2. I have to check out that app. Do they have one for biking? I don't run anymore. #wowlinkup and thanks for linking up.

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.

This site has links to all of the fonts on the poster above of my favorites are on her list, so I didn't see any sense in replicating it. Plus, she did it better than I would have.)
