5k My Way -- Day 5 -- Blargh and the value of partners
Friday, February 15, 2013
33 degrees, almost felt warm. Walked the planned 1/2 mile in the planned 10 minutes, though I was a bit gimpy.
I may not have mentioned, but I am NOT a morning person. I do work to maintain a good attitude, especially early in the morning. Honestly, my life is just more fun if I take a positive outlook. If nothing else, it irritates the other "not morning people" in a most entertaining way.
This morning was not my normal morning. I woke up foul. I had a toothache, a headache and my right knee was throbbing. The wifey was warm and snuggly and the last thing I wanted to do was get out of bed. But all I could think about was Brother "J", who would shortly arrive in front of my house. (I'm thinking black suits in our future sometime. J and S walking the streets of Reading, looking for aliens).
Needless to say, I dragged myself out of bed and got ready for the morning routine. Of course, I'm glad I did. At the end, my tooth and head still ached, but I'd had a nice walk with my friend and took time to make breakfast and pack lunch instead of stopping at the local convenience store.
Lastly, I put some thought to this blog. What could I have said if I wimped out before I finished my first week? I suppose I could have just skipped the day. I definitely wouldn't have gotten here and posted excuses. You are an inspiration to me. So, thanks to those who read, and especially those who comment. I couldn't have done it today without you.
