Weekend Plans Post: Winding The Summer Down
When we run our 5Ks, our meeting time is 7PM. About a minute of stretching and then we’re off like a herd of turtles. Run up the one road road that isn’t quite abandoned, turn around when we get to the tree, run up the abandoned road until we hit the real road, then turn around and run down the abandoned road until we get back to our cars. During the summer, that meant that, right around the 2/3rds part, we were treated to a gorgeous sunset over the mountains as we ran. And then it became around the halfway part. Now we see the gorgeous sunset get started right after we start running and we return to our cars in twilight.
So we said “Okay, new start time is 6:45.”
And so now it’s only a little bit dark when we get back to the cars.
I imagine we’ll bump it to 6:30 next, then 6:15… then I’ll start bringing my clothes to work and run a 5K after work…
And then we’ll have daylight saving time end right around the time that we say “it’s too cold to run”.
And at that point I’m seriously going to have to figure out a home workout. Because all of the little exercises that I used to do… going up and down the aisles at the grocery store, visiting different people in different parts of the building to get the different parts of my job done, the climbing gym… all of them have been turned into stuff I no longer really get to do. We have our groceries delivered. We have Zoom Meetings. The climbing gym is a vector, you’d think, because of all of the stuff getting touched and all of the chalk being clapped around making everybody sneeze.
If I still had a Kinect, I suppose I could do Dance Central…
Ah, well. In any case, this weekend will be devoted to an actual handful of errands that we get to run around town, the various things that we have to do around the house, and laundry. I guess.
And boggling that it STILL isn’t time for Labor Day.
So… what’s on your docket?
