“A Melody Softly Soaring Through My Atmosphere”

Posted by speedygeoff on Monday, February 25, 2008 with 2 comments
My training progress
last week’s target: 90k
achieved: 90k
year 2008 total to date: 732k in 8 weeks
this week’s target: 100k
weight: 65kg ▲
song of the week: Soul Meets Body - Death Cab for Cutie - from "Plans"

“and I cannot guess what we’ll discover”
I have added "Soul Meets Body" to my playlist, but wait there's more ... a video clip of this great song with clips from the brilliant Narnia movie!

I love it when some clever person grafts one of my favourite movies with one of my favourite songs. Last time it was Snow Patrol's "Run" with Lord of the Rings; this time it's Death Cab for Cutie meets The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe!

I still cannot wait to see the next Narnia movie, Prince Caspian, out in May!!

How my running is going
I am not sure, I am sore, I will have a better idea in another week. I will need this week at least to complete my recovery from Thursday's 10k I think. This doesn't bode too well for my March racing plans! But one can just take things one day at a time. I won't ease off training, but racing is suspended for now.

  1. what did you think about the original Lion/Wardrobe? lucy (i think it was her) had some chompers.

    i'm not a fan of the book, Prince Caspian. i had to read the entire series aloud to my students FIVE YEARS IN A ROW. prince caspian put me to sleep every time. i think it has to be there to bring in the characters or something, but it was the least fun book. it'll be interesting to see if the movie bags vegos like the book did. poor eustace. was such a dork because he went to an alternative school.

    i have high hopes for the movie. PC is strapping. he never came off as strapping to me in the book. whoo hoo!

  2. Prince Caspian is the least memorable of the seven books, but
    Reepicheep is introduced in it.
