2005-04-24 Treadmill Run

I'm telling ya... music makes a difference when running. Tonight I decided to run to Metallica's debut 1983 album "Kill 'em All." Holy ef'ing crap, that album KICKS BUTT!!! I was only planning on running 3.0 miles, but I didn't want to stop listening to the album, so I just ran until it was over. I even bumped up my speed at the end because I was so energized. My HR ended up going a little higher than planned, but I don't care. I felt like running faster, so I ran faster.

50 minutes, about 30 minutes @ 6.0mph/148HR, then increasing speed.

While I'm on the subject of Metallica, let me note just how much Metallica started so SUCK after their bassist (Cliff Burton) died. Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning, and Master of Puppets are perhaps three of the best albums ever recording... but after Master of Puppets (and Cliff's death), their music slid from mediocre (And Justice for All) to pathetic (The Black Album) to unmentionably horrid (everything since The Black Album). What a waste!
