Sunday afternoon cardio festival.

1.25 miles on the treadmill  just warming up.

300 floors on the stair master in 39:27. Apparently this is 6.25 miles. This was pretty hard - Based on my breathing about like a tempo run.

1 mile cool down on the treadmill.

Watched the Daytona 500 while I was working out. Part of me was pulling for Danica Patrick but part of me was also glad she dropped from 3rd place to 8th place on the last lap. Because if men can't win the Daytona 500 what's left for us? I mean women are already earning about 60% of the college degrees in the U.S. and will clearly be ruling the world in a generation or so so it's nice if they can leave us NASCAR for a little while longer.

I don't think it really matters as long as they are hot.

Well, I don't feel nearly as bad about my old people comment anymore.
