Getting buzzed

There's an airshow in town this weekend. Which means a lot of acrobatics and low-flying jets.

Ordinarily, this would mean I get a free show. But this weekend the cloud cover is so low that even when it sounds like they're scraping the roof, I can't see the planes. It's rather like being in a house that has a really good party going on in the next room.

Have to stop exercising for the next two days. Am making a note of it here so that I will be forced, indeed shamed, to do something once I'm able. It's so easy to fall out of the exercise habit. I know some people get addicted to running. I, for one, could use that sort of addiction.

Update du Tuesday: Hey, it's 6:47 pm. The night is still young. There is still time for me to exercise. Five hours and thirteen minutes. Plennnnnnty o' time. Probably.

Update du Wednesday morning: Don't look at me like that. There were reasons. And I'm off to walk right now. (No, really, I am. Honest.)

I know. I keep hoping I will be magically struck by the running addiction, but I go a week or so without running, and seem to suffer no ill effects. No burning need to put on my running shoes and get out there.

Maybe someday.

I'll be checking back on Tuesday to see if you've laced up your running shoes. See aren't I helpful?

I'll check back too!

I have the kind of running addiction that makes me cranky if I don't go; however, it doesn't make me eager to do it. I usually have to force myself, even if I ultimately enjoy it. And it's been this way for decades so I'm kinda thinking that's not gonna change.

Sorry, that's not exactly encouraging!

I understand completely. I can't seem to get addicted to exercise either and need to get back to the pattern I was following before vacation. Tomorrow. It's another day, right?

I'm probably out of the loop on this, but sometimes, if I have vigorous exercise planned and I can't or REALLY don't want to do it, I'll do something milder (ie, walk instead of run, yoga instead of weights, etc.).

Something really IS better than nothing, and sometimes if I get into it, I get more vigorous. And if not, I tell myself I needed the rest ;-)
