Sore...resting, reading, watching football.

PM: Ann and I went for a 3 mile walk. We talked about the difference between the millennial generation and our generation. She was mentioning these young nurses she works with who are always taking several week "leaves of absence " to hike in Europe or something like that and how that never would have occured to us or anyone we knew in our 20s. We also talked about how fun it would be to hike the Appalachian Trail in our retirement (once it stops being so trendy) but how we probably wouldn't do it anyway because one of us will decide it's irresponsible.

AM: 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups prior to the French Revolution.

PM: Short weight workout after school. Easy run around the neighborhood plus 6 high quality striders. Homemade chicken noodle soup for dinner.

COMFORT ZONE

Nothing great is achieved there. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable all the time.

A potpourri of activity today :)

One mile jog warming up with Abby before her race at the school down south. I'm really proud of her 6:09 mile today. She maximizes her ability in every race. Then 4.25 hard eliptickle miles followed by a hard mile on the stair master.

The Sugar House 24 Hour Fitness was even more foul and disgusting that usual today. I feel like that's one of the reasons I rarely get sick. You get exposed to every sort of bug there which builds up a powerful immunity. You become like the Europeans who survived the Black Death in Guns, Germs, and Steel.

Hoping Alex Smith and the Chiefs can figure out how to knock off the Patriots now.
