Running down a dream
Yesterday was the first time that I have gone running since September. I expected it to hurt a lot and for me to be totally exhausted. I wasn't yesterday, it was great. I was tired, but not gasping. And I wasn't sore at all. The key word here is wasn't. Today my legs hurt... it's slightly painful to sit down. *sigh* Ah well, I didn't really think that I would get off scott free after all that break and then doing a run. I don't think that it will take me too long to get back to where I was, but I am a long way from it now. My pace yesterday was horrible, but oh well.
I have borrowed Peter's palm to try it out of a bit... I keep on forgetting to be places and things that I have agreed to, so hopefully this will help a bit. We'll see.
After me bitching about the new slow modem, my dad is investigating it and has been fighting it most of the morning. It's been connecting at a blazing speed of less than 24000. *sigh* I think that two cans and some string would be faster. He'll get it working faster though, but until then I'll be doing an downloading at my brother's place or work.

Hmm. I'm surprised I haven't mentioned this to you before, but maybe you should look at Shotgun'ing your connection...
(basically 'bonding' two modems together to near-double your connection speed and having the ability to 'unbond' without losing the connection for voice calls..)

http://www.wt.net/shotgun.shtml (technical FAQ)
I'm not sure if Sympatico supports it or not.. (or where to get the software since the page is no longer available at Diamond..(www.diamondmm.com)
Also, maybe see switching from a V.90 to a V.92 modem would make a different?
(edit: btw, is there are way to do links through comments? I could have turned those URLs into links, but I don't know the MT syntax...)
