One of those days...

Friday, March 01, 2013

Ever have one of those days where everything takes twice as long than usual? I had one of them today. It put me in a time crunch, which I never got out from under. I still managed to get to the gym, but had to cut my workout short. That meant no ST today, just cardio. I still ran 4.4 miles on the treadmill, but I increased the speed a little, so that it didn't take quite as long... and I only pedaled for 15 minutes. Made it home in time to shower and get ready for company, who then arrived an hour late! Oy! That is just the way my day went today. I did manage to clean the kitchen and do some laundry this evening though. I am amazed I got anything accomplished today. And next week will be crazy as I have at least 4 appointments, on top of my regular schedule of activities.

Today was my father's 70th birthday. We were going to have a party for him on Sunday, but there is too much happening this weekend already, so it has been rescheduled to next Sunday. I will see him tomorrow anyway, as I am going over to their house to make them lunch, after I go to the Farmer's Market. He is still very active, and walks 6 days a week, no matter what the weather. I want to grow up to be like him.

I'd say you are well on your way to being like your father. I bet you outwalk him most days. Have a nice lunch and time with your parents. I bet they look forward to Saturday lunch with you.

    Very impressed with your father. My father is the same way, and he's 72. It definately helps them stay younger and healthier. We can still learn from them.
