Hey, it's CAJ!

I'm just that guy whose full name is Curtis Alan Jackson. I like Star Wars over Star Trek. Love my sci-fi hard and always interested in time travel related stories (not as much alternative history). Enjoy reading about quantum physics and cosmology even if I can't understand the math. :) #FARP2021

COVID-19 has now killed 1 in 500 Americans "The COVID-19 pandemic continues to take lives across the United States, with ethnic minorities disproportionately suffering losses." https://www.popsci.com/health/one-in-500-americans-dead-from-covid/

Comment

From Men in Black back in 1997: "A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow."

If you track your running online and/or with a phone app, what do you use? I use the obligatory Garmin connect since that's my watch but am looking at other sites now that my Strava subscription has ended. I just signed up for Smashrun since reviews talk about all the data interpretation it does. (This is a big draw for me. Love data.) I was also looking at Training Peaks but it's even more expensive than Strava, so...hard sell for me there.

Comment

I use MapMyRun (free version) simply because that’s what I downloaded and used years ago when I wanted to map out the distance of a bike route and it’s works well enough that I’ve had no motivation to explore other options. I like that I can record all kinds of movement (e.g. trail running, road running, snowshoeing, hiking, etc.) and that when I login to my account on the website I can see the data in a variety of ways.

Ah! I left that off my list but I basically use it for only mapping runs. When Under Amour became involved I tended to shy away from it.

I use rather Polar watch (I'm in Finland) and it can export to Strava. Which O use in free mode

It all sounds really great until you consider the "running" part. Incidentally, I use MapMyRide and Garmin Connect on my bike.

I just recalled that I used dailymile.com WAY back and it was my social site before I stumbled across FriendFeed due to its beta update crossing my path. What a journey.

Every catch yourself being mad at someone when it's actually your fault, mostly because they're doing/not doing something you didn't them to do/not do? Just me?

It's not just you! This weekend when we were dealing with the epic plumbing issues, I found myself being mad at the Spouse because he hadn't removed the stuff under the kitchen sink *before* the raw sewage backed up all over everything under the sink. The thing is, we were both working under the sink on the plumbing issue, and I had plenty of opportunities to move the stuff out from under the sink before the back up too.

#FARP2021 In preparation for my "All Run April" next month, I decided to see what a goal of running 1000 miles for the year would look like. Apparently, I'm *only* 45 miles behind pace. So that's interesting.

Comment

Already closed the gap to 32.6 miles behind. Not shabby.

 ‎· Hey, it's CAJ! 2

It seems crazy, but I may need to adjust my goal. I'm only 19 miles behind goal pace as of this morning.

 ‎· Hey, it's CAJ!

And a mere 7.2 behind pace after this morning's run. Guess I'll have to reevaluate my goal in a couple of months.
