Searching for Sugar Man

I am sure some of you have seen the movie, but for those of you not in the know, the title of this post refers to the documentary with the same name. I saw it with Kasper and Alena in a cinema in Oslo when we were visiting a few weeks back. And while I liked the story that was told, I was really taken by the music of Sixto Rodriguez. Here is a guy who has gone virtually unnoticed in most parts of the world for more than 40 years, and as far as I can tell, he’s as talented as Dylan or any other contemporary singer I can think of. Actually, I much prefer him to Dylan, but that is just my opinion.

I will not write any spoilers here, so if you want to watch the movie I suggest you access your favorite means of of getting hold of it. Meanwhile, you can have a look at the trailer:

Those of you who use Spotify, can use this link to hear the soundtrack.

Besides contemplating movies I’ve seen in the past, I also started Week 5 of my workout regimen. The location was the pool at the National Sports Centre and the routine was the familiar 1,200 meters in 30 minutes. I felt a bit sluggish when I arrived, but it didn’t take long before I understood it was going to be a good session. Yesterday’s rest has worked wonders, and I had no problem getting my laps in. I must say, I feel a lot different than when I started. I can push myself a little further each time (both in the gym and in the pool), and I recover so much faster than I used to. And yesterday when I was out walking, it literally felt like I was floating. It probably sounds corny (does anyone use that word anymore…?), but being significantly lighter and also having added some strength to my legs, really makes walking feel completely different.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Maybe if I manage to run just a little bit faster… 😉
