Rain check please

Rain check please.

Yesterday’s 30-mile Disney bicycle ride was cancelled.

We (Orlando) needed an all-day rain.

More rain this afternoon.

The early bird gets the worm.

Sunrise is 6:50 AM.

Hoping to be in the saddle by then.

Rest is more than sleep

Rest is more than sleep.

Rest is also an intentional abstinence from physical activity.

Many creative ways to administer this.

One of the easiest is to pick two consecutive days (out of seven in a week) to take a break from cardio, strength, core, and stretching

Today is Monday.

An early morning bike ride is on tap.

How Much Is Enough?

Rest story

Note to self when an idea struck yesterday. After a couple years at Disney Institute (was there 1999-2014), i realized i never again wanted to pursue a promotion.

We know rest is critical for our physical health.

The same concept is easily, and appropriately, transferred to work.

Covid-19 is causing many to be furloughed.

Unemployed – my former colleagues at Disney – are reaping the benefit of maintaining their healthcare benefits for a year.

The downtime, absent of healthcare coverage worries, will be an incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rethink their trajectory and their career ambitions.

Magic happened when, convinced i had found the perfect level of work, there was no longer a desire to climb the proverbial ladder.

The catalyst?

Noticing that none, in my opinion, of the leaders in any level above me had remarkable joy in their life.

New WordPress Blocks are cool

Blocks in WordPress

Experimenting with the new cover block (add text over image or video…

High altitude exercise requires more cardio of sea-level dwellers than their low-living lungs are used to.

Experimenting with the new gallery block…

Yesterday was a rest day since the day before was a 26-mile bike ride. Not to mention yesterday was a long work day too, mostly because we watched Onward’s debut on Disney+.

Hoping to head out on a pre-sunrise bike ride this morning.

Unexpected joy from early bedtime

Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park – just a glance behind me while ascending a mountainside.

Unexpected joy from early bedtime.

Being able to have a routine bedtime means you have a routine awakening.

Having this routine focuses you on a set total nightly hours of sleep.

This is incredibly boring.

This is insanely empowering.

You cannot stop joy when you are refreshed.
