The Stanford Prison Experiment: A Simulation Study of the Psychology of Imprisonment

Pretty fascinating. I think I’d heard of this before, but I just read through the “slide show” on the site. They are making a movie about this. Should be a good one.

Nike Human Race Official Results Monday, September 1st, 2008

So my official time for the Nike race was 1:15’43”
My time for the Capitol 10K in 2007 was 1:10’41”

This is fine with me for now actually. The Cap10k is in APRIL. The Nike race was is in September (one of our hottest months). And I haven’t been training as long for this.

I intend on running the IBM 10K in October, so we’ll see if we can smash both of those times by then 🙂
A good start!

Nike Human Race Sunday, August 31st, 2008

Woo hoo! Just finished the Nike Human race. I don’t know my results yet and I didn’t set a personal record or anything, but this is actually noteworthy… Check out how consistent my pace is for the race. This might be the most consistent pace I have ever run (since high school). I’m pretty impressed. Ignore where it drops off at the end, I forgot to turn off the iPod.
Consistency! Crazy cool!
Very tough race for me. it was VERY humid out, and I haven’t been training with any hills, of which there were PLENTY on the course. Really hard. A good baseline for future races though.
After the race we were treated to an awesome concert by Ben Harper. One of my favorites to see live. I think I have seen him 5 or 6 times now. Great show. Very nice setting too, the stage was right in front of the state capitol.
More later.
Here’s the stats. Check it.

A do run-run-run-run a do run-run Thursday, August 28th, 2008

Long time no post and this is a short one.
Just wanted to say that I am going to do the NIKE Human Race this Sunday. It’s a 10K! Am I ready? Eh, who knows, I haven’t been back at running very long now, but I increased my distance from 2 miles to 5 miles over the past 5 workouts. Maybe that’s moving a little fast. Dunno. But we shall see. Check out my workout logs over to the right there to see my progress.

Oh.. and I just took my second ICE BATH! More on those soon. Excruciatingly good 🙂

To write about:

  • Ice Baths
  • Running Regimen
  • 100 Pushup Challenge
  • My Sleep Apnea and I’m doing about it – CPAP!
  • How I won the lottery and still haven’t told anyone
  • How I discovered the cure for world hunger and will sell it for $100million
  • Trying something different on the page Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

    Ok so I kinda figured that just posting the workouts to here was boring. So I separated those off into a “Forum” down there over to the right under Blogroll. I’m still going to be posting them, to keep myself accountable. But I’m not going to have posts on my blog like I did yesterday or the day before or whatever where it is JUST the workout graphic. If there is something notableabout a workout, I’ll write an entry.

    Until then, workout data will be posted on that other link. We’ll see, I would really like to redesign how the page is layed out, but not willing to invest the time for that right now.

    That said, running is actually becoming somewhat enjoyable for me again. It’s nice to push yourself. It’s still hella-hard, but it’s getting “easier”. I’ve been listening to Daft Punk during my last few runs and really like it for running. Great music for a run.

    Other stuff going on: SCUBA! (speaking of which, I gotta go study now)

    One of these days I’ll catch up and do some posts about a bunch of other stuff I’ve been meaning to blog about. But for now… SCUBA study. Ciao
