I attempted w5d3 today and failed. Could not do more than 11 min straight (the goal is a single 20 minute run). Feeling pretty discouraged. Will try again Tues but i think it is going to take many tries to nail this session. To my credit, it's about 90 degrees outside, and I am maintaining a pace of 5.3-5.5mph which is faster than a lot of people in my weight/fitness bloc it seems. Not sure whether I'm going to force myself to slow down when I try again to make it easier or whether i maintain my speed and just take as many tries as needed to nail it eventually.
Here’s a story of a lovely lady (spoiler: it’s me) and her pride and how it has led to the discovery of the single greatest board game I have ever played. It’s probably also a good primer for other reviewers on increasing your reach. At GenCon this year, I was perusing the wares of the various booths and my eyes caught a glimpse of two beautiful game boxes. Each had crisp metallic lettering with an old world feel and artwork that radiated European class. I made my way to the booth and waited patiently to speak to to the team manning it as there were many buyers lined up to purchase the games. I didn’t know anything about the games (Brass Birmingham and Brass Lancashire), or the publisher – Roxley Game Laboratory – but I knew I wanted to review one or both of the games. Almost every board game love story I star in in can be summed up this way: I am seduced by the artwork or theme and then I stay for the right mechanics. When the lead rep spoke with me, he gently rejected my request. He
