At any rate, I do know that I went to the gym at my usual time and that I managed to do my assigned workout, but the details are a little fuzzy. I think there was some rowing and I know I had ball slams (yup, they’re as fun as that sound!) I remember the slams because I didn’t have a big enough medicine ball, so I did an “extra credit improvision”, because I was using a lighter medi ball, I did more reps.
Beyond that, the only thing I really remember is that the gym was empty, I’m assuming because of the weather. We had mid 70 degree temps yesterday and today we have an inch of snow.
The highlight of the day did not come from the gym or any workout. My new nephew, NC, arrived about 7:00pm. To a great degree he (as well as my other nieces and nephews) are one of the big reasons I’m doing all of this. Not only do I want to be here to see these little munchkins grow up, I want to be able to keep up with them! I want to be there when they learn how to swim and how to ride a bike. I want to be able to teach them how to be healthy and active and be a good role model. Who knows, maybe someday I’ll go to Hawaii and watch one of them compete in the Ironman World Championships in Kona.
But before we all go to Kona, I need a nap!
