One fat geek's attempt to regenerate into a not-so-fat geek by watching the entirety of Doctor Who while walking on a treadmill

My arm is marginally better today. If I wasn't traveling to Colorado in two days I wouldn't be worried at all, but as it is I am probably going to go see a doctor tomorrow just in case. I don't want to be stuck in the Rocky Mountains for a week wishing I had seen a doctor before I left. Then again, I guess if I need something to help me relax in Denver...

Anyway, I also watched the last part of The Two Doctors today, so let's talk about that.

Whatever the heck I did to my right arm, it doesn't seem to be improving much. It feels like I tweaked a nerve, and depending on what I am doing and how long since my last dose of ibuprofen, it is either mostly ok or else all tingly and muscle-achy and my right index finger goes numb. So that's not a good sign. If it hasn't radically improved by Monday morning I may have to make a trip to Urgent Care. So that's nice.

On the upside, I got to spend an hour this morning with My Doctor, the Second (and best). So let's talk about that.

That stretching session I had yesterday evening? Yeah, still feeling it today. It's good, but boy howdy I wasn't exactly jazzed to get back on the treadmill this morning. Still I know that you, my dear imaginary readers, would be disappointed if I missed another day so I forced myself to do it. I knew I wasn't up to going full speed, but I didn't want to be lazy, so I split the difference and went 4.5 mph for the full session. I made it all the way through, but i was definitely feeling it by the end. Ultimately I was glad I forced myself. 

Anyway, I also watched the rest of the current story today. It paid off with a t-rex. Let's talk about that.

I had a very, very late night last night with a software release that took the better part of five hours to complete. As a result, I didn't exactly bounce out of bed this morning. Even so, I did manage to squeeze in my treadmill time early this evening. Then I went for a stretching session with a sports therapist, and right now I feel like I went a full round with Mike Tyson. So I'm kinda ready for bed  now.

But first, let's talk about the Rani.

I had a major software release at work today. I've been up since early early prepping it, spent all day verifying and finalizing, and then spent nearly five hours deploying it. No treadmill for me today. Tomorrow, though, I will meet the Rani. So that will be nice.

I just finished wrestling with my home wifi network, and now that I have it beaten into submission I really want to just go to bed. Especially because I know that tomorrow is going to be a very long day, work-wise. So I am going to keep today's commentary brief.

Yes, I watched the back half of Vengeance on Varos. Yes, I liked it. Let's talk about that.

The Running Man: Time Lord Edition

The Running Man: Time Lord Edition

On Friday I had an epic treadmill workout in which I went at 5 mph for the entire 55 minute session, the fastest and furthest I have gone over the course of this ridiculous project. In the past two days I have not been able to duplicate that effort, not even close. Perhaps tomorrow. At least the last two days my weight has been moving back in the right direction after spiking again. I am finding 240 to be the most difficult and elusive barrier yet. That's ok, though. I'll get there. (Or I won't, and that's coll too.) In the meantime, today I started a new story, and boy is it a doozy.

Let's talk about that.

The CyberController Needs a Time Treadmill

Look, I'm not fat shaming, I agree with Peter from Average Joes I think you are awesome just the way you are. What I am saying, though, is that if you are a Mondasian who has decided to bit-by-bit replace his entire body with cybernetic parts, and rise the through the ranks of Cybermen to become the CyberController, wouldn't you pick... slimmer parts?


He's not fat, he's big boned

Let's talk about that.

Wait a Minute, That Was... Good?

Wait a Minute, That Was... Good?

Today was easily the fastest and the furthest I have ever gone on the Time Treadmill in a normal 55 minute session. I went at a straight 5mph non-stop for the entire duration, walking 4.58 miles during that time. I thought that 5mph would be at or near my crossover point, but surprisingly that is still a (very fast) walking pace for my stride. I didn't think I would last the entire session, but by the last fifteen minutes it became a matter of will to tough it out. It felt really good.

Also surprisingly good: Today's episode. Let's talk about that.
