It's easier to be Puff but It's harder to not Run

(Warning: I am actually Batman, duh)

As I let my self accept that I'm resting and healing, every day that passes feels like an eternity for the running portion of my brain. Shelving running purposely for even a day is rough. Like a superhero hanging up his cape.

As I mentioned before, I'm trying to do something active every day to keep this from happening:

and slowly get lazy:

Monday: Weight room for 45 minutes. Although all health benefits were shot with lingering Halloween candy around the office.

Tuesday: The Mrs. wasn't feeling well so I stayed home from work to watch the kiddo and let my wife rest. I got to take her to gymnastics:

If I was at work, I planned on using a stationary bike for 30-40 minutes then do some stretches from physical therapy.  To stay active, I decided to take a walk instead. I got my tot in the jogging stroller and headed out.  Unfortunately it rained most of the time, even though called for no rain. About four and a half miles just to keep the crazy away and burn a few calories. Could easily feel where the stresses are on my legs. Keep resting.  The plus side, it is easier to take photos while walking:

Onward Mighty Chariot!

Ducking under the bridge when the rain picked up



I took a lot of photos here over the summer

Wednesday: Back to the weight room (M/W/F) where I'm sure the Goliaths are internally going like this at me:

Don't like this post?

I was going to ask you to talk about how your pre Friday eve is going (Wednesday for you non Weekend Warriors), but..
So just say something totes awesome about yourself!


  1. 4 days of work until family vacation. Doesn't get more awesome than that! Well, of course 3 days and the subsequent 2 & 1 day...vacation itself...all more awesome than 4 days...but you get what I'm sayin'

  2. I have to be a toddler to take gymnastics? Because I'd really like to just jump on trampolines all day, thanks.

  3. Nice!! I better catch up on your blog to get more details! I expect the amount of vacation selfies to be a plethora!

  4. haha i could too! sadly they do actual gymnastics after the initial play time
