Aside

Championship

I may have been born in Wichita, but my team in tonight’s NIT Championship game is from Alabama. The game between Wichita State and UA will be played in Madison Square Garden and televised on ESPN2 at 6PM Central. Hopefully the Tide will become one of only 3 teams to end the 2010-11 season with a win (the other two being winners of the NCAA and CBI tournaments).

Roll Tide!

New fitness goal – I wanna go fast

Lately I’ve grown way too complacent with my fitness. I haven’t really been on the ball since I did my first marathon in December. I’ve done a couple of races since then, including the Mercedes Half Marathon, but I didn’t commit to training for those races the way I should have. This ends soon.

Last week I added my running PRs to the sidebar of this site. However, I’m not particularly happy with any of the times. I think they are all “okay” (except maybe the marathon time, but that was more about surviving). For my new fitness goal, I just want to improve these times.

Beginning on Monday, I’m going to commit to training for a 5k again. I’ll probably do something like a weekly update on the site for accountability sake. My first goal will be to run a 5k in less than 25 minutes. Depending on how long it takes to reach that goal, I may adjust it before I move on to the 10k.

I really just want to get back to enjoying running for the sake of running, instead of seeing how long I can will my legs to keep moving before I pass out*. I want to finish a race and think to myself, “man, I was really moving!”

Hoping for the best!

*Disclaimer: I’ve never actually passed out during a long run, but there were times where the leg cramps made me wish I would.

Agile whitepapers, etc from 21apps

This looks like a pretty good collection of resources for things pertaining to XP (Agile, TDD, CI, etc). What’s extra nice about this is the focus on these things in light of Sharepoint. I’ll be doing Sharepoint development with my new job, so this could be very useful for me.

Book quote from Agile Principles, Patterns, and Practices in C#

A team of average programmers who communicate well are more likely to succeed than is a group of superstars who fail to interact as a team.
