Did it! Felt fantastic. Yes, it’s been two to three weeks since I last exercised. The dark, cold mornings affected my mood. And I didn’t have comfortable running clothes for the weather. Over the weekend, I discovered the gym is open during office hours.
Today was my first day at the gym since COVID. There were three of us in a small gym. We social distanced without difficulty. Exercising with a mask will take time, but it’s worth the exercise.
Ran/walk Distance 1.89 miles. Total time 22:28 Avg Pace 11:52/mi
Avg HR 149. Max HR 172. I was in Zone 5, 41.5 % of the workout. That’s anaerobic metabolism, the production of energy without oxygen. Fortunately, it wasn’t a long workout. And I did it!
What exercise did you do today?

Huh? Me? The usual stuff. Cleaning the pool. Take care of the gardens. Pick-up is full now with branches, leaves, etc. Was on the roof to clean the gutters, Fed the fish in the ponds. Vacuumed the house. Prepared food. Did a pile of laundry. Posted a new entry on my FB-page, including Nina Simone’s and Emil Latimer’s song “Black is the color of my true love’s hair”.
As the day is not over yet, more to come.
You did all that and the day isn’t over? Awesome!!! lol
Despite the fact that I feel extremely tired, exhausted, and overly frustrated most of the 24 hours, I’m still overflowing with energy. Even heavy physical tasks are nothing to me. Like me, even Lucitta was surprised about this phenomenon. For instance, she couldn’t believe her eyes when she realized it was her old husband who was running down the street to catch some lowlife who had tried to enter our Valhalla uninvited 😈
You’re a rare breed. I am having difficulty recharging my battery. Just completely low energy
Re: “You’re a rare breed.” Yes, I told you I’m from The Other People, didn’t I? I even put it on my FB page.
I’m glad everything worked out for you when you were able to use the gym and the treadmills. Good on the gym for making sure everyone did social distancing as well as making sure everyone was safe.
Hi Curtis. I am delighted. Was worried about the winter and no real outlet to walk or run. Only wish it was open at instead of 9.
Very good. It’s great you were able to find a place to get some running done especially as the temperatures drop outside.
