Lately, I have had to play "juggle my personal and professional life" around so I can get the workout in game.
It has been a hassle at best. So, lately, my only open hour of the day has been 6 am. At first I thought this was going to be a real detriment to my mental health. After all, most people should be hitting snooze at this hour. Instead, I have found these moment enlightening and a real jump start to my day of crazy stresses and infinite jests (that is a book title, I think).
There is something about swinging a 16kg kettle bell over my head at 6 in the morning. It brings some clarity. I mean, I could kill something with that thing: especially myself. I guess it is nice that at 6 I don't have enough time yet in my day to think of anything else but the training itself. I am not misguided by the other thoughts that distract me like: what is for dinner, what am I going to say to such-in-such at work today, did I leave my car lights on?
There is just me and my fitness. I like that. I have been a bit lazy in my running over the past several weeks. I think I need to re-engage and I think the mornings is the time to do it. I am going to give it a go. I will let you know how I turn out.
