Not gonna Challenge anymore for now. I took Steve's words and started thinking in days and years. Challenges are just short-term distractions.

Probably won't do much in next couple days, as this Sunday I run 12km OCR. Extra bit of rest won't hurt ;)

12 kilometers (7,5 miles), ~50 obstacles, 35*C (95*F), full sun. Sign (roughly) says "Doesn't matter if it hurts".

Two hours rest, and then family 2 km run.

Ugh... post run blues hits hard. 

First week after I did nothing. Okay, regeneration time etc. But after that, I need to start moving. And not like "I should". Its more like "I have an urge". But there is a problem... I somehow grew tired of all the stuff I did earlier. All those exercises seem bland, repetitive (duh!) and wasted effort. 

 

Of course I can force myself through this, but do I want to? I have enough other problems and stuff making me miserable to just add another.

 

So, I need to find something new. Right now I'm rebuilding my old bike to try cycling. We'll see how it'll turn out.

 

But in the meantime:

Last week were pushups - 5x10 on Monday, 5x11 on Tuesday and so on till Friday.

This week (because bike is still in pieces) - pull aparts with exercise band. Monday - 5x10, today I plan 5x12 and so on. Ended doing 5x15.

Weekend: I finished renewing my bike. I guess next week I'll try to get some cycling time.

No bike time on Monday, but clocked in half an hour of teaching my kid to ride (running and helping him keep the balance).

 

Tuesday - 5km bike ride. Feels nice to know I still know how to ;)

Something is happening... and I don't like it. I find myself pretty much avoiding exercising, unable to find something fun to do consistently. I guess it's some sort of a crisis of faith or something. 

 

I don't like what's happening, but I don't have enough spoons to power through it right now. I think I'll fall back to essentials. 20 - 30 pushups a day, 5-10 pullups if I feel like it.

 

Gotta live with it.
