My Next Pair Of Shoes

My exciting life includes buying another pair of my present runners during a 40% off online sale so I can put them in the wardrobe for six months or so until I need them.

Besides the (by Grabthar’s Hammer what a) savings I won’t be temped to keep wearing worn down shoes and damage myself.

The pair I’m currently using cost 40% more (obviously) and took two weeks to arrive at our local store. These arrived in 48 hours or so.

Cinderblock – Spirit Animal Of The Exercising World

I’ll be back on the treadmill at the gym tomorrow morning.
Some friendly person cheerfully inquired as to whether I slept in today because it was 5.05 and not 4.55 when I arrived.
Anyway, at various points I’ll be thinking of Cinderblock, the latest internet celebrity cat who was surrendered to a vet by her infirm owner because she was too much to care for because of her weight.
Rather than putting her down, the vet decided to put the cat on a health kick.
The clips on YouTube may make you briefly wonder which option Cinderblock may prefer at different times.
But it’s a generally heart-warming story, and congrats to Purina for helping out.

Back To Normal

I don’t like being out of routine.

It’s one of the reasons I find holidays discomforting.

I mean they’re enjoyable and a bit restful and I do love seeing people, but I do like being home and being in my comfortable pattern.

It’s some sort of control thing, so I do try to break it.

Jetts Gym Milton

I’ve wanted to visit the Jetts Gym at Milton for years.

It’s on the ground floor of the building where the PCQ church offices are located.

A stormy forecast was a good reason to give it a try between meetings this afternoon.

Satisfied customer, but I do like walking on the riverside pathway.

One For The Insomniacs

Woke up last night, couldn’t get back to sleep, at the gym at 4.00am.

I’m normally there by 5.00, but I can’t stand just lying awake waiting for it to be time to get up.

And you can’t let the day get away from you.

New Shoes

I bought my old pair of exercise shoes on August 3 last year.

They’ve probably done over 3000kms of mostly walking. Mount Gambier, various gyms, Adelaide, Sydney, Maryborough/Hervey Bay, Gold Coast, Melbourne.

They’re wearing and my feet are feeling it. I’ve probably let these go a little too long.

Time for a new pair. And I was even able to get my preferred colour this time.

Off to the gym again tomorrow.

Change In The Weather

This morning’s exercise around Mount Gambier was a bit cooler.

It wasn’t breezy, so not too bad.

A sign of things to come.
