Here a list of things I do when I can’t run:
Break into my stack of books I have been wanting to read…… Reading Longitude right now. This is the story of how one man solved the problem of accurately defining how to calculate longitude in the 1700s.
Organized my home office and filed my bills…. Lots of paper that defines what was bought and sold. I should just have my investment company send me electronic versions.
Update my website and blog…. This was long overdue and I finally converted to WordPress for my gravityh.com. Also restarted my Blog and worked out how to publish directly to my blog from my iPhone.
Read Wikileaks….so much to read. Eye opening that our government has such abysmal security controls. Train the dog… This is fun and will benefit Blaze in many ways. Got him to sit and stay but “speak” will require some more work.
Eat a big breakfast… Love this.. Usually on a Bluebird day like today I would be out on the cold trail trying to warm up. Instead this morning made an omlette and bagel while warming up to a cup of coffee.
Focus on my “take for granted” relationships… I should not wait for injuries to focus on this as relationships need constant attention and are the most important. I find these moments a wake up call and I learn more about myself on the important people in my life.
Go for a bike ride …if those parts are working ….this is a double edged sword. Yes it helps my cardio but could also delay the healing process if I push too hard or underestimate or miscalculate what is really injured. Getting out doing something physical has mental benefits and allows me to cope with my own issue of feeling left out from running with friends or exploring on my own.
Ok. Got To Go. Think I will go for a bike ride.
