To be fair to myself, I’m not JUST sitting around, I’m also eating. :) Seriously though, for a variety of reasons (work mostly), I’ve fallen out of my normal habits. Over the last 6 months or so I’ve attempted to get back on a regular schedule of working out early in the morning with limited success. More often than not, I’ve used the quiet time of the day to catch up on work or maybe quietly drink coffee without 15 nonstopped questions about “dad, when Max gets his (neutered) stiches out, THEN can he make baby puppies?”. No, son. The answer is always no.
What I say I've been doing: Drinking coffee in the morning
What I've actually been doing.....
The other challenge is gear. The thing that initially drew me to running as much as it did was the lack of ‘gear’ required. All you need was a pair of shoes
So, like anything new - be it working out, a new hobby, or even regular old work – there is a learning curve that must be overcame. It seems like scheduling and lack of gear are the ones that I’m currently working through. One of those would seemingly be easily fixed with money. The other is a little bit harder to overcome – but not nearly as hard as it would be for Max the dog to have babies after his surgery…. More to come on how I work through setting up a routine!
