5K Training Running Activity 3.26 miles

I hit the treadmill around 2:10 this afternoon, not really expecting to finish my run because of not feeling well yesterday. But I ended up running my fastest time for the 5K distance so far - 27:47.

I still run with Outcast playing in my Sansa player. The earlier albums are perfect for my pace.

Today's run time was 30 minutes total and I finished 3.26 miles. Overall, it was a good run. I have to change my heart monitor's "high" zone to be 185 instead of 180. I stayed around 160 for the first 2 miles and then hovered around 176 for the last mile. At the very end of the run, I hit 180 a couple of times because I was changing from shorter to longer strides.

Next run planned for Saturday. I'm going for 5 miles.

Military Families: Check out Project Sanctuary

I remember when the yellow "Support Our Troops" stickers and magnets were so popuplar that it seemed like they were on every other vehicle on the road. It was great to see people rally behind the troops. Now, after more than 10 years of war, we still need to support our troops - at home, as well as abroad.

What a lot of people don't realize is that the impact of deployments lasts a long time. Having to carry on with life while separated from your loved one is difficult enough. Unfortunately, many military families are destroyed during the "reintegration" of the military member back into the family.

I found the follwoing transcript from CBS about Project Sanctuary. It is "a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide therapeutic, curative, supportive and recreational activities to veterans, active military personnel, their spouses and children in a leisure environment."

Great idea!

Video Make Beats with Reason Pat Benatar Sample Flip Remix by TaurusBeats

I use Propellerhead Reason, Propellerhead ReCycle, Sony Soundforge and many other music production tools.

In this video, I show a little about how I take samples from an existing song and then rearrange ("flip") the samples into different patterns before "wrapping" the flipped sample patterns with various instrumentation I perform.
