Got up this morning to gray skies and rain. Perfect day to head out to the track, run around a bit, then head out to the pond for a swim. What were the chances there would be a crowd anywhere?
I was right about a few things – there were no crowds. But the track I went to was closed off, as it had just been resurfaced, so I ran around the edges a bit, till my quads complained too loudly and demanded to stop.
So, I stopped. And stretched. And went on to swim. Had a good swim – got out to the point and back at a pretty decent pace. I was a little off — a little tired from staying up late last night. But it was an okay swim. And it felt good to just get in the water and move.
Stopped off at the grocery store to pick up some meat for supper, then came on home, had some brunch, roamed around the house a little, then took an afternoon nap. Didn’t sleep as long as I was hoping to, but at least I slept a bit.
Then got up and did my chores. Ran to the store for some salad ingredients. Took care of some administrative stuff — the MySQL hostnames for some of my sites are being changed by my ISP, so I logged in and did some checking and tweaking, and it’s all good now. At least, I think so till after August 1, when the changes take effect. Then I get to see if things crash.
Don’t think they will, but you never know.
I’ve been on a kick, lately, of reading books by people who think things should be done differently in the world, and who have their ideas about how they should be done. I recently finished reading “The Art of Learning” by Josh Waitzkin and “Drive” by Daniel H. Pink. Interesting. They must read the same people or talk to each other, because there are common themes between them.
Now I’m reading “Punished by Rewards” by Alfie Kohn, which Pink references in his “Drive” book. Somehow, it explains a whole lot.
But now, the day is done, and it’s time for bed. Tomorrow is a rest day for me. Unless I decide to go for a swim on my way home, which is entirely possible.
