Well, this past week has been one of recovery from the long, exciting days of WorldCon. The vacation week meant I hit all my points target on my MisFit, but didn’t do any running, swimming, or cycling.
This past week I didn’t manage to get any swimming or running in either. I cycled enough to add 72 more miles to my total, but didn’t get up and go running, or make it to the YMCA to swim some laps.
I can probably get the running worked back into my schedule; getting the gumption for the swimming will take more effort. Previously I did my runs when the wife got up at 4 a.m. on the mornings that she was opening at work. But she’s on sabbatical for 3 months, and so I’m not getting up that early. Still, I can manage a run or two a week, probably on the days I work from home.
It is the swimming that will require retooling. I’m thinking I might need to flip back to swimming after work instead of trying before. To swim before work I need to get up around 4:30 a.m. to get to work by 7 a.m. If I do it afterwards I can probably cut off at least 30 minutes of time, and still sleep later. We’ll see how soon I put the swimming back into the cycle.
But the key thing to remember is that I keep active, rotating my activities among various activities to get my points. I might even put some weight work in for upper body strength. That’s probably the next element that I need to think about.
