Session #26 (yesterday, per twitter): 3.3mi / 48m and change. 3 laps! at a 4.7mph jog, a half lap at 7.0mph.

Session #24 (Friday, Oct 14, per twitter): 3.3mi / 57m50s, peaking at 7.1mph

(today, per twitter) Session #25: 3.3mi / 57m12s, 3 laps at a sustained jog (~4.7mph)

AGAIN, that's supposed to be 47m and seconds each time... it's like a mental block

Occupy Wall Street public opinion is up and rising; Tea Party public opinion is down and falling. This, despite mainstream media's best attempts to denigrate or just plain ignore OWS. The single most effective thing a consumer can do without actually grabbing a sign and occupying Wall Street or the financial districts of other cities, is to move your accounts to a credit union. If you're not eligible for a credit union then the next best thing is a small local or regional bank. If your bank took a TARP ... (...more)
