Cold was the word of the day on Sunday. It’s just as cold on Monday. Temps are in the negative teens, and windchills make it tremendously unpleasant outside. Sunday’s 5 mile run was done in the comfort of a domed fieldhouse, running 1/5 mile laps around a soccer field. Much more tolerable than running outside.
It’s a long weekend and so it’s hibernation time for an extra day. Saturday I stopped at a liquor superstore and stocked up on some beer and wine to tide me over for a while. The beer pictured above seemed very appropriate for a weekend like this. Most of the rest of the weekend was spent watching TV shows, and going outside only when I was getting restless.
As my wife can attest to, I have a hard time sitting still for an entire weekend. Even an entire day is too much for me most of the time. I often find that I need to get out of the house and do something, even just for a short bit. Sometimes it’s a run to Target for a couple of items. Other times, I just hit a coffee shop and drive around for a short bit. I don’t really play many immersive video games anymore, so once I’ve exhausted the latest news from the inter-webs it’s time to get out of the house.
Not really sure why I get so restless sometimes. Maybe I just feel like I need to be accomplishing something all the time. But yet, I enjoy the idea of laziness too. I usually can’t wait to be done at work and get to head home. It’s a conundrum of who I am I guess. For now it’s time to curl up for an extra day with good beer and wine and try to not worry about anything but rest.
