So, if you haven't noticed, I have pretty much given up on the whole "daily exercise" thing. Mostly, this is because despite the fact that I have typed the word "exercise" here many, many times, it always takes me at least three guesses before I can get it spelled right. It's a mental block, I'm sure, just like I can never remember the PLU for pistachios in the shell. Never.
Seriously, I never seem to have the time to do even fifteen minutes of something silly. I know this is a very big excuse. I could, for example, get up earlier, read less internet, or many other things to set aside some time. But I have not done so.
Instead, I have just had Sam sign me up for a 5k winter running series. One 5k race every month for the next three months. That gives me a concrete goal of beating Sam, and therefore, I must prevail in real workouts. My initial plan is to get up really early every day. This will start after Thanksgiving break, of course.
