I exercised twice yesterday! In the morning I rode my trainer for an hour, and then in the afternoon I walked 4.5 miles laying my trail.
The best things I can say about my trail last night was that it was a trail, and that it’s done. I managed to get trail laid in plenty of time and then killed some time afterwards at Kroger. While I didn’t get to incorporate all of the parts of Piedmont Park (sections are closed) and midtown alleyways (they were too far away to keep trail short) that I wanted on my trail, I was able to snake it past the infamous Waschsalon. Fifteen hounds came out to run trail, and then drink at Guac y Margys afterwards. It was a little nerve wracking at the start because parking wasn’t the sure fire guarantee I hoped it would be since they have started to boot the cars of people who park there and use the Beltline. Luckily the restaurant manager had pieces of paper we could put on our dashboards to avoid problems. Next time a lay trail there will be ample, free parking. Due to the cold wind last night we took over the bar area inside. I had two beers at the end, plus a little more for the two down downs I did, before heading home.
It has been so windy this year! The wind ruined so many fire pit burnings that I had anticipated having with Bonnie, and soon, it will be too warm for fire.
I passed out on the futon watching YouTube around 11pm last night. After waking up and migrating into bed after midnight I fell asleep until 2am. Yep, I am pecking out this blog post while lying awake in bed again.
Remember I mentioned yesterday stopping my eating/drinking early last night? Well, that’s because this morning finds me at my primary care physician for a physical. It’s funny, I have lost weight and think that I am in better shape than I was the last time I visited for a physical, but I have a fear that I am going to receive news that I won’t like. Don’t ask, if there is something wrong and I wish to divulge it, I will. Bad news would be apropos, since it seems as if I have been drowning in Lurker’s Pain Barrel since failing Wordle on April 1st.
Upon returning home from my physical I will be choring in WLF to start making headway on my projects for 2022. My recent malaise and emotional incapacitation, combined with a late cold snap, have caused me to ignore WLF; it’s very weedy out there. Today I am going to construct a netted cage to put over one raised bed. This netting will hopefully keep out the cabbage white moths, as well as the critters that like snacking on brassicas such as broccoli, cauliflower, Swiss chard, etc. I am also going to gamble by planting out my four tomatillo plants today since we should not be getting another frost until later this year. Although looking at the weather forecast it appears we will dip into the low 40s again overnight, so I may wait until Thursday morning to transplant the tomatillos.
I am not handling my life well currently, I know that’s difficult for you to believe… Hopefully I can figure out a solution soon regain some happiness without taking any (more?) drastic measures.
This being Tuesday I will be doing my customary night alone at home. Nights alone are easier when I have weekend anticipation. At least this week I can look forward to Spring Tune Up at week’s end. Here’s to hoping STU creates memories that will be positive, and will remain so forever. I suppose tonight I will start planning my meals for STU since I will be heading to Rutledge on Thursday. Packing the M6 is a breeze, meal planning is always difficult. Bonnie, text me to let me know if you want to share meals again this year.
Hope that your week has started well, and that you remain healthy and/or recover swiftly.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 185.2 pounds (+0.4 from last week’s weigh-in); I’m okay with this, all things considered. I’m sure the doctor’s scale won’t be as kind as mine, however.
I solved today’s Wordle in two attempts; my starter today was FLOUR
