Blog title signifies nothing much more than the date being 5/7 and it reminding me of this Springsteen song. It was either that or some lame Heinz Ketchup joke.


Didn't do much in the way of exercise over the weekend, just 20 some minutes on an exercise bike on Saturday. That was deliberate. The lack of movement on Sunday wasn't so much, as I kept intending to move, but it never quite happened. I've made it to the gym each weekday for the past two weeks, so I'd like to keep that going. But I also kind of want to do a run down to Columbus, OH on Thursday which might make that less than feasible. We'll see. Today's trip to the gym was oddly unsatisfying. Went there intending to do cardio, but there were people there playing pickleball, so I went down after a short warmup spin on the elliptical. Finally bought a new paddle after 5 years of using the gym's paddles or borrowing one from someone with an extra, and for the first time out, it went ok, but it also revealed certain deficiencies in how I hit the ball. I picked this particular item because it's the same brand/style as one I've been using somewhat consistently over the past few months, but I guess it's changed somewhat in the years since the person I've been borrowing the other one from purchased theirs, because it doesn't feels quite the same.

Then again, I've used my new one exactly once. I'll get used to it, and adapt to it.
