“fat around my gut and not quick enough” is a phrase from a blog of a fellow janathoner. My response was as follows “commiserations – I share your dilemna but what the heck; enjoy life, enjoy exercising, and nuture all the relationships that are important. That’s what matters. It would be good to be faster though.” And that is where I am at. I would love to regain the free flowing form I had as a performer in my own movie (memory is notoriously unreliable) but at the same time I know it is the people in your life who should be foremost in terms of priority. This is ironic as I am hopelessly asocial but I am working on it.
Reality has struck and I have to set the alarm for the wee hours to complete student marking before tomorrow. I am pleased to have got in a swim this morning but it was at the cost of riding to work. How to fit it all in? I love cycling recreationally and feel righteous, well good at the least, about reducing my carbon footprint (I don’t trust the airlines when they try to charge you for this though; proabably because I don’t understand how that works in their case but I always imagine it just goes into their profit coffers). Anyway time ends up getting squeezed in the day which I hate and I have to take the car to get to where I have to be in time.
I guess that is something to work on.
