Maybe Jasper Does The Astro
Finished off my 4th day in a row of working out tonight. I was way less than thrilled to climb on board the trainer again, but once I got on and got warmed up, it got better.
I watched an old OLN (now Versus) video of the Montezuma's Revenge Race and iPodious was cranking out a live White Stripes that I obtained not long ago. I was doing some 5 minute tempo pyramid intervals mixed in with some short bursts. Staying focused on the minutes, my form and heart rate.
But THEN I hit tracks 16. Let's Build A Home/Going Back To Memphis and 17. Astro/Jack The Ripper. And HOLY PETE, I felt freaking rage! It was great! I swear i went from 135ish BPM to 170 and my RPMs went from 90 to 105+. Structure was out the window and I just let my legs fly along 'till things chilled a bit. Ah the power of music.
Be warned. If you download those tracks you WILL lose control during workout. You WILL break into a full on sprint. If in the gym, you WILL push the muscle headed guy on the machine next to you onto the floor and start screaming "MAYBE JASPER DOES THE ASTRO!!" in his face. THEN you WILL get your ass kicked while he screams "WHATS' YOUR PROBLEM YOU SHAVED LEGGED MOTHER F*CKER?!"
Also, a little F.Y.I.- The second half of track 16 "Going Back To Memphis" is a cover of song by the Soledad Brothers. I've seen them live twice, not on purpose. One time they opened for the White Stripes (and were good) the 2nd time they opened for Spiritualized and kinda sucked. Oh well.
In other news, Brent and Ryan A.K.A. Twin-Six have teamed with Litespeed to do some t-shirt designs. Check out Litespeed's blog to see the story, and keep you ballz peeled to the Twin-Six site for the Litespeed designs.
Speaking of T6, have you seen the jerseys they designed for the Fat Cyclist? If not, check 'em HERE. Freaking sweet stuff.
Lastly I have to give some thanks to Tech Head/Blogger/Marathon Mountain Biker Travis Swicegood for hooking me up with some space for some of my trainer mixes. I've only experimented with one right now (mix #9), but in the future I hope to have it set up some you can just directly download a mix to your desktop if you want. Thanks Travis!
