Free Day

Today I called a sanity check and decided to take a "free day". This was mostly due to the fact that I had zero motivation to get myself to the gym, and it was BEAUTIFUL outside.

So I did my push ups for the Hundred Push up Challenge, I had just enough room to do them in my room if I pushed one of the boxes out of the way. I finished off with a set of 20 for my max set, but I'm definitely starting to feel it towards the end of the set. Add in that my triceps are still aching from the extra arm work I did on Monday and I was not very keen on doing any more arm work today.

So instead of going to the gym, I went to the park. I got myself a bowl of mixed fruit for breakfast and sat in Battery Park in the shade looking out across the water towards the Statue of Liberty. I sat in the sun dappled shade knitting and eating my fruit, watching the tourists and listening to the wind in the trees.

It was the first time in a while that I haven't been rushing off to get something accomplished. I just sat and relaxed.

When the S.O. got out of work we walked from Wall street up to Union Square, which is about 3 miles I guess. It took us about an hour. We sat around in the park and enjoyed the good weather until I had to go to work.

So I got a little exercise (the walk and the push ups) and we're going to go to the gym tomorrow on what would normally be an off day. More importantly, I restored a little of my sanity today.
