So its time to spruce up the house. Spent last weekend and this weekend painting, I used to do this each spring but didn’t have time last few years, so this year, was major. My hands are sore and swollen. That will be gone by morning. I used running strategy to keep pushing through it.
As I’m coming out of Lowe’s with what else, more paint, Friday night, I saw that my long lost friend from high school sent me a message on Facebook. Wow! I tried to find her before but with no luck. She and I were inseparable back then.
Here’s a picture Mary sent me this weekend – at her high school graduation party – I’m in yellow shirt. Fun times. I quit smoking 22 years ago. Picture taken 1979.
So, I started the morning out repairing my poor Chinese dragons that sit on our front porch. They were broken last year and as before, I put them back together usually with super glue, spray paint bright red and then return them to their posts.
It takes us about a month to get ready for spring and summer. We go through a process of assessing how things weathered the winter. Then clean up, repair and then get the flowers and plants out. Always feels good to be getting close to spring.
So I started back to the gym coupled with some running. The last visit was tough. I did jumping jacks and then added weights to the exercise among other things. Doing okay and figure I will really kick it into gear this week. Just as we get our house in order, I have to get my self ready for a big running year. Glad I kicked that smoking habit long ago. Wouldn’t be able to do too much running otherwise.
What is your training regimen and do you train year round or seasonal?
