How Much Is Enough?

10 is the most i ever want to do

Golds Gym Orlando
The 10-day break was intentional.

 

Ten days away from the gym, or running, is the most i want to do.

Last week at the Writer’s Retreat, i ran and biked, but no gym. All intentional.

Good to be back at Gold’s yesterday.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Planned on not running or going to the gym today

Disney Customer Service Keynote Speaker
Back in the day, maybe 2005. i often didn’t run because of grueling travel.

 

Planned on not running or going to the gym today.

Planned on it.

This softened the blow, because missing it today is seen as a deliberate-extra-bonus rest day, versus, feeling like i’m falling behind.

You can tend to other things, like running your business, on your own terms.

You Win Some And You Lose Some

Would have loved running this road two mornings in a row.
Stone Mountain, Georgia. Yesterday.
Greensboro to Atlanta. Atlanta to Orlando.

Yesterday: up at 4:30am to be the first one in the classroom. Teach until lunchtime. Pack up, grab lunch, check in and wait at airport, travel all day….Four days on the road. One day of exercise. I knew this before I left Orlando.

Today: sleep in until 6:30am, write five blogs, run and strength workout at Gold’s Gym. You win some and you lose some, as long as we refuse to quit. We quit and we always lose.
