Okay, so I’m of taking the sissies way out for today’s – *gasp* – rolling “dreadmill” run. First, my run on Tuesday didn’t feel great and left my foot feeling sore. Secondly, it is currently on the plan to ride long tomorrow followed by a short brick (weather permitting, mind you) and then run long again on Sunday and, yeah, banging out an outdoor fartlek today on otherwise fatigued feeling legs seems a tad aggressive for a workout goal, so…
Treadmill it is!
‘Murder of the Universe’ is the tenth studio album by Gizzard & co., released on June 23rd, 2017 – the second in a series of five albums that year.
I know, “order” doesn’t mean much to me apparently, but the album was nominated for Best Hard Rock or Heavy Metal Album at the 2017 ARIA Music Awards so i’m figuring that that would otherwise automatically qualify this album as excellent treadmill motivation.
The album is actually a concept album split into three separate stories, each containing elements of spoken word to carry a narrative. The first two chapters feature Leah Senior’s narration, while NaturalReader’s “UK, Charles” text-to-speech application narrates the final chapter.
Stories to pass the time.
And those stories came in handy absolutely as there is little pleasure at watching the same two grannies bobbing in the pool’s hot tub. Lack of scenery and ambiance aside, the run itself went alright and the legs feel okay so I’m hopeful that while I’m off my usual time/distance goals with Ironman run training by now, I’m still performing healthily and safely.
