Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Today was yet another test of my new routine. I had committed to go running with Lisa in the morning. This meant that I was going to make good on my thoughts from yesterday that I wanted to run for a longer time because I knew that Lisa preferred to run anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Lisa and I headed out the door and ran for 5 minutes until there was a bathroom break needed. The jog had gotten me warmed up so I did 30 jumping jacks and 2 minutes of stretching and 12 pushups. We then continued on a 3.6 mile route that snaked it way through the park in South Lake Union, Seattle. There were plenty of other runners and bicyclists out around the park. Although I went far longer than the mile that I would usually go, I found the run manageable.
After the run and back at the apartment, I stretch outside and did 1 & 4/5 pull ups as well as 0.5 chin up on a 8 foot high metal parking structure fence. Since I had done lower body on Friday, today was upper body. Up in the apartment I alternated between activities and stretching and 24 dumbbell rows (12 each arm) using a full backpack as weight, stretch. Reward time = breakfast and shower.
