Like the picture? That's me running in a 10k this past August. It doesn't really have anything to do with what I was planning to write today, but I'm trying to add it to my profile, and I think I have to post in in a entry first.
Anyway, I did not work on my novel yesterday. The reason is typical and boring. I couldn't find the time. I did go to the gym in the morning and did my UBWO (upper body work out), so that's good. But we needed to go shopping for a birthday present in the afternoon, and during rest time I had to tidy up for the babysitter. (Scott and I went to a fundraiser for Kyle's preschool last night.) Typical! The hyper-critical part of my personality tells me that I should have been able to squeeze it in somehow. For example, had the house already been tidy, I would have had rest time free. But it wasn't. So I didn't.
I hope I get to it today, but it's another busy one: birthday party, maintenance day at the preschool, regular life. I usually take a long run on Sunday mornings, but maybe I should write instead. Here's an example of that trade off. I can exercise OR write, but probably not both.
Somehow, I'll make this work.
