    Putting the fun back into a workout?

    I could name the voices in my head so my conversations make more sense!

    I think I will start by setting a regular schedule of just working out, and maybe Santa will get ma an entry to a spring time half. Or maybe a tattoo gift card!

    Set aside

    They set right where I left them 3 weeks ago. I have had no reason to use them since then. The cold grey that covers my life has now moved in, in full. I have hopes that I will once again get the chance to use them soon. But the decisions I have made in the past have put me here today. I know that the glow of relief I need will return some day. Until that day comes, they will stay put, but not forgotten. Oh, I suppose that there is a chance of 2 or 3 bright moments that will show up. I look forward to those few short times. There is little that I can do about it in the meantime. Come March next year, things will be better. I look forward to having the need to putting them back on. My Sunglasses! 😁🤦‍♂️ Winter is long and dark here in Wisconsin.

    I use to do something love that at the Y track, instead of a dumbbell, I would go down and back up the stairs 2 times. That would kick my butt.

    That is a lot of plans to find, You got a system on how to narrow down the selection to a final list of 6?

    Good questions Michael. I had put my running on hold for the summer. Well more like all activities that could be seen as a work out or exercise. But that did not mean I was a couch potato, had lots of other things that needed taking care of. I enjoy running and the structure it brought into my life and mind. It was the long runs, the loss of time that I could spend in my workshop, the time spent alone on the roads and in the gym, and the increased time needed to recover my body from running. I want to get back into running, but it looks like 5 miles may have to be my new long run and that is based on where I left off and my current health issues. It is hard to find a running group that has members willing to go short, slow miles with a grumpy guy, not that they judge me, it is not fair to them. So I am looking for tips and tricks to make my running time and gym workout time not so dull, mentally,

    How can I put some fun and enjoyment into a new workout plan so I won’t give up on things to soon? That is all. Ed.

    The night that never was.

    The other night I did something that I had not done in more than 25 years, I went cross country skiing. The weather was perfect to enjoy being outside and as soon as the skis were under my feet it all came back to me. The trails across the open white fields were straight and smooth. The back kicks were high and the strides smooth and long. The climb up the hills seemed effortless and the return glide down the other side was fast and refreshing with the wind briskly brushing my face. I commented to myself that the speed felt just a bit slow, but brushed it off as my waxing of the skis is a skill that I never seemed to master. I was enjoying the outing with a few of my buddies and as it is when guys get together, it turned into a competition. Do not think anyone really won or got the best of anyone, just a fun time out. Back at the lodge while getting out of the wet boots and socks I noticed something when tossing my wet gloves on the floor near the fire to dry, the top of my right foot was in great pain. The pain is what I think caused me to awaken suddenly at 2:00 AM and realize that my winter outing was just a dream. I am not too sure why I went skiing in my dreams, but I am happy that Mr. RA let me finish the wonderful time I had out with my friends. I remained awake for the rest of the day and thought about my adventure many times setting around at the office. It still brings a little smile to my face thinking about it now. Just because I have slowed down a lot lately it doesn’t mean that I have given up yet, I still fight on. And who knows, one day I just may strap on some skis and make an afternoon of it.

    Can we talk shoes?

    I had a similar issue but now I do this with my laces. I miss the top of the foot.
