Two-a-days

Fall hiking in Glacier
Hiking through Glacier National Park is easier if you are active before you arrive.

Two-a-days.

What?

In practice, some people do two workouts, or two rehearsals, of two simulations a day. 

Some do this to outdistance their competition. Some do it out of necessity. And some do it because they’re simply playing the hand they are dealt.

At 5:15am i’m out the door for a run with my wife. This is too early for our son, a high school senior.

He and i are out the door at 6:15am.

During Summer, we will creatively solve for a single run together.

i have to laugh

family at Disney Springs
January 2, 2019 – yesterday. Mary Poppins Returns was good.

i have to laugh at how little distance we are coving after five months of running Monday through Friday every week.

Nearing 3/4 of a mile in non-stop running, with a cooldown walk that puts the total daily distance at one mile.

Seriously, after five months we aren’t quite to the equivalent of three laps around a high school track. 

Why the laughing?

Because no one i know would show up at a track on the first day and run less than four laps.

Our goal is to create lifetime habits. Habits are formed slowly and steadily. How many people do you know who have been intentionally moving for a lifetime?

All of a sudden, our distance seems irrelevant to the slow, steady, and consistent progress we’ve made since August 6, 2019.

Wishing you a broken leg?

good luck
At Disney, and in the entertainment industry in general, break a leg means good luck.

 

i’m getting better at waiting to make progress or completing something before saying, “Guess what i started doing?”

Why?

The likelihood that simply declaring something is not going to make it a reality.

Why?

Do your own math and you’ll quickly see that we humans are a funny bunch.

We desire all sorts of good-for-us change, but we are generally inept at making it stick.

Today begins month five of running one-mailbox-a-day for a week and adding a mailbox with each new week. This is not only me doing this, but also Cheryl and Chapin.

Disney Keynote Speakers often travel 13 hours to speak

NC State airport ad
Think and do.

 

Leaving home at 6:30am and arriving into the Arkansas hotel 14 hours later reminded me of the 15 years of travel as one of many Disney Keynote Speakers at Disney Institute.

Since retiring from Disney Institute four years ago, travel, by design, has been tolerable.

Yet yesterday’s long day (on a Sunday no less) is proof that “we work while others play” is a demand every professional has to wrestle with.

Today begins week 10 of one-mailbox-a-day. We are at eight mailboxes or the equivalent of two laps around a high school track.

Slow and steady helped us complete week nine

Mojave OS
Apple no longer puts OS upgrades in the App Store. Now you find them in System Preferences. Love the Mojave tagline: Simply Powerful. Daily exercise is .simply .powerful too 

 

This morning’s pre-dawn runs completed week nine of our one-mailbox-a-day wellness transformation.

When i say runs, here’s what i mean.

Cheryl is up and ready to run by 5:15am.

Chapin is ready an hour later, so i run twice.

In the Summer when we began, High School was not in session so we all ran together for the first month.
