How does that saying go? The only way to kill a zombie is to blow off its…head, right? Okay, so why zombies? Well, honestly, the majority of people find my blog by searching for zombies. Seriously. I get hits on my blog with search words like: zombies, pics of zombies, zombie Jesus (yes, seriously, say it with me: Zombie. Jesus.), zombie apocalypse, etc. And they all stem from one post (which you can read here). I wrote it sometime back for a Spiritual Sci-Fi Friday. (Which, by the way, this isn’t, just to let you know).
So why Zombies? Well, they’re in popular culture right now I guess. Real big too. Now, with Zombies, you have rules. You can find these rules at Zombielandrules.com. And rule number one: Cardio. Yes, that’s right. Cardio. (Of course, Rule 21 is stay away from strip clubs, but if you ask me, that should be a no brainer if zombies are attacking, that’s like the last place you wanna go to tell the truth.)
And now here’s the kicker, recently from a tweet from Think Geek.com, I saw this video and fell in love. Check it. (still figuring out WordPress, Blogger let me just add it, but you gotta check out this video)
Honestly, I just gotta say wow! Now that’s a way to put a passion, pop culture and exercise to a great fusion together.
Now, of course, I’m not going to make any Zombie Jesus jokes (again, say it with me: Zombie. Jesus.) Jesus, of course, isn’t a zombie. That’s a whole ‘nother raising from the dead thing that deals with the power of the Holy Spirit and is probably a Spiritual Sci-Fi Friday someday.
But right now, what I like about this video is that there’s some fun and play in getting encouragement to run. I’m not a runner and I’d probably be that idiot who some how survives. But what I do like is that encouragement that’s given.
And honestly, getting over this blasted walking pneumonia (my Megatron right now if you will) I need all the encouragement I can get. I’m looking forward to the all clear to start lifting again and hitting the heavy bag. Getting ready to maybe not be the idiot that survives or the idiot that survives by punching zombies. I’m not sure.
What about you, how do you get encouragement in working out?
