All of these days - and for the first time on the weekends, too - I've made the time to get to my gym to stretch and roll. Usually in the early morning.
I've watched five or six sunrises from inside my garage gym in a row. Not a bad thing to be doing. Not a bad habit to get in to. I've been thinking a lot about habits these days. The fact of the matter is I have a few habits that support a long happy life and a few that do not support a long happy life.
I'm trying Ringo, I'm trying real hard to be a shepherd.
I've also been doing some thinking about what I'm studying these days. It's Hamlet - I've not studied it for a while. It's that damn "To be or not to be" speech. I'm wondering what happens after you pass away. It's this
The undiscovered country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
I know that's he's talking about killing himself. I'm not thinking about that. I'm grappling with the idea of what happens after we shuffle off this "mortal coil". I'm wondering why I'm not living the life I think I should be living. I have such a small life; I keep wondering when the cool stuff happens. If I have to keep waiting for the cool stuff, maybe it never happens.
Seriously. That's what is rattling around my head. I am about ten years away from finishing a career as a teacher. I like being a teacher, but it's all I got working for me at the moment. I'll leave this discussion here, as it's bordering on "look what you've written online, you should be fired" stuff.
Saturday I got elected back to the Niagara Rugby Union exec. That was cool. I got some time spent being a dad and my life is going as well as it can. It's a great big ball of "Dude" with a side order of "Duuuuuude". I also had a twelve-lead stress test done on my heart - it's a normal heart. I'm also pretty healthy in terms of blood pressure. I'm going to have to chat with my favourite science teacher about how that works. I've just forgotten all that from my days at University. What was interesting was that I taught the technician during my time at the ALC. Circles within circles, I tell you.
Thursday I got a 2k walk in. It's what I could do after a freak of a day that day was. Friday I had to be a dad, Saturday I was a rugby man, Sunday was a show and Monday was a write off, too.
20 H2H kb swings
20 kb cleans
20 kb cleans and presses
20 kb squats
20 step ups
15 bw squats
15 push ups
After that, did three rounds of double kb cleans and press. One minute on and one-minute rest.
That was kind of interesting.
