Earthbound concerns of an ascendant adult

Duathlon Update

with 7 comments

The training’s going well, but: On Saturday, I went to the gym with my friend Zach and there discovered—whoa!—running is hard. I’m accustomed to that easy-on-the-knees elliptical. Treadmilling is hard on my legs. They start to stiffen up and the rigor makes running difficult. My shoes might be at fault. I need new shoes. Honestly, I don’t know that I’ll be ready by #duothon time and might settle for spectating; still, I’m trying to get ready and that’s getting me to the gym. I’ve found a good workout induces a sort of involuntary and unforced meditative calm, and with work being so stressful, any sort of meditation is valuable.

  1. “involuntary and unforced” sounds contradictory but I know what you mean. ;) Feeeel the burn.

      • You’re welcome. I could change that though. *click here for timeshares, acai supplements, and assorted ponzi schemes* hahaha

      • You forgot the herbal Viagra! And the watches. I get a lot of watch spam, too.

      • I thought I’d omit the sexually related spam. It’s just a given. Lately I’m getting a lot of “make $250 a day from home” and “Christian dating” spam along with acai supplements and timeshares. We’re talking 5-10 acai supplement ones a day.
