There’s a lot of change going on in my life… internal change. A quick summary would be: CPAP, sleep, goal setting, sticking to a schedule, kid moved out, gym.
Part of the goal setting thing was to not advertise them, so I won’t.. they have to stay personal, private, and accountable to important people. What I will say is that this is the calendar I’m trying to stick to, with blessings from my partner:
The idea at first was to work out after work, as the gym is on the way home. However, that ran into a few things:
- I had to take the right Gym clothes with me at the start of the day
- I had to transition from work to gym clothes and then back out to winter coldness
- If I was going to bring home take-home, it had to be near the gym
- I got home all sweaty
So, today, we reversed it. I brought home takeout first, and then hung out with my darling, and THEN, with her blessing (I’m a little co-dependent at times), I went back out to the gym.. already in my gym clothes.
It was awesomely wonderful! I ran PI miles (3.14) .. there were less people there, I could get on the treadmill when I wanted.. I was not on a schedule so I ran an extra 15 minutes or so because I was feeling good.. heck, I was dancing on the treadmill. Yeah, one of those guys. Not sorry.
And then I got home, did a few more messy things involving garbage, then took a shower.. transitioning to “self” time – which I’m spending typing up this blog post.
Life is Good.
Separate post about picking up running again. I forget what I’ve posted about already and what I haven’t.
