      Here's a beat I bet you never heard before. Agnus puts on a SHOW. It's always fun to watch a person in "their element", be it speed bagging or whatever.

          Ya! Nothing like a good bit of rock'n blues. Early Bon Scot was the best. He modelled himself off another Aussie hard rocker, the grandfather of Australian R&R Stevie Wright, rest his soul.
          Stevie Wright was the front man for a 60's R&R band called the Easybeats, he then went solo in the 70's and 80's. There was a stage where I would see this guy perform every Thurs night down at the local and or around abouts.

          What a showman

              Just wondering what sort of training, if any, he'd do for that... I used that foot mix with the skipping rope, wonder if he does the same.

              Speaking of training Spin, howz that running/jogging com'n along?

                  I think Angus's training is all in the rush of the band. He can't control it, it controls him.
                  As far as me.... I hit the LA 1/2 Marathon on 1.10.10. That's 13.2 miles. Of 2700 runners, I came in 543rd. Not bad. Did it in 1:53:00. Around an 8:40 mile or so. Sprinted to the finish. It was a trippy, unique experience. I will do it again. Only I don't want to always have to say "1/2 marathon" so I am trying to convince myself that a full 26.2 marathon has to happen this year!
                  But I don't want to change my lifestyle so much which most do when training for this stuff. I want willpower to lead the way with a good amount of running behind it! I read books about Ultramarathoners and their 100 mile runs through mountains. That's how I get pumped to keep running. I like the solitude and I like that my mind starts going into its own world when you run. Left, right, breathe, repeat....ignore everything except the road ahead.... Runners that get near 100 miles talk of serious hallucinations yet have to be cognizant enough to know that they are only hallucinations, not bears and other runners standing there watching them. They talk of overcoming all the doubt in your mind and going further physically and mentally than you ever thought a human could. And that's drug free.
                  That puts you back in the day to day grind in an elevated place that you created on your own. I like to try to achieve that... but it is hardcore.
                  Way more than I am now.....
                  So this week, the past 4 days on the road I've ran 8,8,8 and 10.
                  I got to hit at least 6-8 again tomorrow by 2pm and be ready for the baggers to show up at the speed bag truck at 3. And then do a 1:45 sweaty rock show, then wake up and do it all again the next 2 days before going home....
                  BAG ON!

                    ... Sounds hecktic. Never did like running much myself, unless I was carrying a rugby ball scoring a try, or something like that. Good luck Spin

                    Sorry to hear about your friend Deano, deepest condolences. Just to bring everybody up to speed, that section of road in my vid stretches between my place and Deanos, so either way its always a pleasure to go to Deanos.

                    Ya, road kill can be deadly on a bike. That hairpin you're talking about is always covered with loose foliage. Back in 85 I got my 1st serious bike, it was a Ducati Pantah SL 500, we were doing this run back then as well. I imagine you would have been about, doing this run too, then, wouldn't you Deano. A lot of good surf spots down through there as well, Sand Down Point a noted Sydney big wave reef break, just don't upset the locals.

                      No kidding!! Unreal. Now I'll have to educate myself with the Easybeats' music. As good as they were I'm surprised they weren't more well known.

                      Gee, I wonder how Agnus stayed so thin.

                      Spin, so that's how you stay in such good shape to hit those drums the way you do. You must burn up the calories too as the music takes you along with it.

                      Sorry to hear about more motorcycle accidents. We can't stop everything, but for me now, what part of the road I can't see, I assume something is there and ride at a speed accordingly.
