Recently my life’s been turned on its head– I can’t work, and my gym is closed as well. So I find myself with some unplanned time on my hands, but I’m determined to put it to use the best I can. (Plus my local running store is offering 10% off for affected folks! Time to go get those new shoes, right? Nevermind that I don’t know when I will be paid next…)
Running is simple enough to work on, but I have no idea when I’m going to be able to get back to the gym. Luckily I planned on this being a rest week, but maybe I can do a bit of bodyweight work and keep up with that grip training. I wouldn’t mind getting out for a long day hike, too– there’s a good trail system nearby and it would be fun to explore.
Today I went out for a long run– 4 miles. It’s been a while since I had time for that! It was very hard and very slow; it took me 55 minutes. But hopefully I can build from there, though I’m a little worried about increasing my mileage abruptly. I downloaded the next set of Zombies, Run! missions so I have plenty to motivate me.
As I headed out of my complex to start running, I was shouted down by a man walking the other direction: “Hello beautiful! I can tell you work out a lot, you have a beautiful physique!” Does that really work for you, bro? I got things to do, and they’re in the opposite direction here…
OK the last line of this one made me smile. Really where do those guys think they’re going to get with lines like that?
I have a lot of thoughts about why random men feel entitled to “share” their thoughts about women’s bodies. It’s not a compliment, it’s control and establishing their dominance by expressing approval.
Sorry you can’t work. :-/ Hope this is all over soon!
