Month 1, Day 15

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.

Journey far,
