Today was not a day for pushups

Time: 0:57:59
Distance: 3.34 miles
Music: Oh No by OK Go
Runkeeper Report

I was slower today on account of being sore and tired. You know how you’ll sleep poorly the night before a big event, or having to get up early? Even parts of my dreams included oversleeping and the relief that comes from missing an activity you didn’t particularly want to do anyways.

Out the door at 6 a.m. anyways, and the brilliance of the 7-minute method was proven quickly. It’s easy to get despondent during things like these–to slip into a mindset focused on the futility of it all.

What if I never lose weight?

What’s the point of this?

Is it worth the pain?

Why bother?

And then the six minutes pass and it’s time to jog. And I have to jog for sixty seconds. It doesn’t matter how I feel, that’s the system. So I jogged even though I didn’t feel like it. According to Runkeeper, I was only a little slower than yesterday (a difference of .02 miles per hour on average), and I’m hoping to get into the swing of things soon.

When I got home, I kneeled down on the floor to do a pushup. When I got onto my arms, though, I collapsed–my pectorals would have none of it.

C’est la vie.
