bed, waiting for my body to get back to sleep when 5 a.m. rolled around.
"Aw, what the heck," I thought, "the pool’s open now, I might as well go for
a swim." I only have free pool access for two or three more months, after
So that’s what I did, I very alertly bounced into the pool and cranked out
some lappage–600 meters to be precise. I’d gone about 200 meters and was
about to stand up when I realized that I could switch over to backstroke and
possible make it the whole way. So I made it the whole distance, but I did
it the wussy way.
As I left the pool, I remembered some buddies telling me they had a hockey
game at 5:30 a.m. today (why 5:30? You and I will never know). So I figured,
what the heck, I’ll go watch for a bit. Needless to say it was absolutely
freezing outside during the game, but it was still fun to support my friends
in their chosen pastime.
As I walked back in the apartment door at 6:15 (no, I didn’t stay for the
whole game, go figure), I got to thinking there was no point in going back
to bed for a half hour, so I might as well set the bike up on the trainer
and get some mileage in. After some time getting things set up, I got
rolling at about 6:30 and managed to keep it up for about 45 minutes.
Then, for probably the first time in at least a few weeks, I actually took
the time to eat breakfast–a bowl of cereal accompanied by orange
juice–because, for once I felt like I really really needed the nutrition.
In my nice, warm, comfy shower, I got to thinking, "The early hours are a
great time to work out. I ought to do this again sometime."
Now, I’m at work. And yes, I’m completely exhausted. Definitely nodding off.
Don’t ever let me do that again, okay?
