I ran in the name of "Burn Notice"

So... here is the thursday deal...

My favorite show... possibly all time favorite show is Burn Notice on USA.

The show returns with the Season Premiere tonight and I couldn't be happier.  The main character "Michael Weston" is, to be perfectly blunt... The Man.

Ever since I started watching the show I have developed a love of the Dodge Charger... michael drives one.  I've started eating yogurt... michael's trademark food is yogurt.  I have started working out... Michael is an ex-military/Superspy/grade A bad ass.

You see what I'm saying here.  This show is for real.. and I love it.

So, in honor of Mr. Weston I hit the roads today for a 3.5 miler and got my buttocks royally kicked.  It was hot and raining, but I know this weekend will be hard to get a workout in, soooooo... I stuck it out and hit it.  Tried a new route today in the hopes it would be less harsh on the hills and drastic inclines.

BZZZZZZZ.  Wrong.  I was running uphill for roughly .75 miles.  I know it doesn't sound that bad, but try it, and then talk to me.  That sucks.  I mean, its doable, but it sucks.

I was doing 9 minute miles, so I obviously wasn't blowing anybody's doors off, but I figure If I can get a little faster doing this training, than  I'll be rolling really hot when I hit flat terrain. 

So that is my silver lining.  So I am going to kick back now and figure out what dinner will be and watch me some serious "Burn Notice". 

I highly recommend everyone do the same.
