Pokemon Go: Day 4

I think it’s day four. For those of you unaware, wondering about all the weird people glued to their phones outside major landmarks and stores, Pokemon GO released last week. The game is AR, where Pokemon are placed in our own world, and we…

Swimming in Molasses

I didn’t want to go to the gym. I didn’t want to workout. I just finished with the Guatemala group, and I thought, I could go home, cook dinner, watch an episode of Leverage, and write and read. But I’m fat and I don’t want…

Pool Debacle

I went to the pool early today. I had gotten in most of my sales calls, I could take a lunch break, I figured I’d get the pool to myself in the early afternoon and spend the rest of the day doing emails and…

Being A Titan

I caved the other day. After being disappointed I couldn’t buy an FWC shirt from Destiny, I purchased the Last Light Installation shirt and a Titan water bottle. What’s a Titan? It’s a force of nature which wrecks bad guys. That’s what. In Destiny,…

Performing Rituals

I love rituals. Not religious ones (though I do appreciate a good litany), but life habits. The human body works best with rituals. The mind knows what is about to happen, and prepares for it. It sets you up for success. My gym routine…

The Swimming Addiction

I was going to write about my heart wrenching dream last night, which I woke up sobbing for, but I really planned on talking about swimming when I first went to sleep. So canning the broken heart. Swimming has been immensely addicting. At first…

The Workout Chronicles: Day 1

I went to the gym today. It has been months since my last visit. I decided to try swimming. I arrived at 9:15 and was in the pool by 9:20. The lifeguard was kind and asked the kids to leave lane three so I…

Hump Day

A – Z April: H Guess what day it is? Hump Day! Yeah yeah! Happy Hump Day, folks. For those working, you’re half way there. For those with a lover, make it count. Happy Wednesday. A little extra from our finest in uniform! Hump…

Exhaustion

A – Z April: E The treadmill bores down on my calves, every step a burden. I can feel them wanting to cramp. I can feel my arches start to tense. My lungs burn and my vision starts to lose color. I’m about to…

Dohvakiin

A to Z April – D It was day two of being in the gym again. I forgot how good it felt. How bad work could be, but it all drifted away when I was in this most glorious chapel of strength, speed, and…

Just the Tip

I’m double posting. I know, I shouldn’t. But I’m excited. I don’t want to be sitting at my desk. I want to be at the gym. I want to be at TM (even though I’m woefully not ready). I want to be climbing crap…

What do you think I am, Gym?! I’m a Nerd, not an Athlete!

It was Saturday morning. It’s been so long since I’ve walked through the parking lot, past the vent from the pool which was warm and moist, the scent filled with chlorine. From the exhaust you could see the pool, with the large glass windows…

Anglorum

"Before the sea she stood, still as a statue but for the wind rippling in her loose lavender-grey dress and toying with her black hair - it billowed in the salty breath of the ocean like a flag of defiance."
