I haven’t blogged from the treadmill lately since I decided to move my workouts outside. However, today I’m back in the gym/fitness room because I started a running program in the last few days and it’s easier for me to follow the interval training on a treadmill. Supposedly, this 8 week, 3 days a week program will allow me to run 5km at the end of it. That’s not bad specially for someone like me who doesn’t run at all right now. (Unless of course something is chasing me).
I figure running serves a few purposes:
1- Cardio is super important for both for my health in the present but also when the impending zombie apocalypse comes in the near future.
2- Weight loss :) I have to do cardio anyways so I might as well run.
3- It’s something I can’t do and I hate not being able to do something. I figure learning to run is something new and I like newness. I hope at the end of my program to take part in a 5km run and actually finish it. It’s not a lot, but for me who runs not at all right now, it’s a good thing. (I can run, but not well and not for very long. I’m really down and out on my aerobic lung capability… Even with quitting smoking… Oh and I look HORRIBLE when I run right now, but this is why I’m working on that. I’ll get better.)
Also, the treadmill here is not working right, but I’m dealing with it…
Besides running or learning to do so, I’ve been focusing on my other business Idle Hands.ca. (Shameless plug. Haha plug, how fitting…) IdleHands is my home business where I sell masturbation toys / pleasure objects through online shopping and in home parties. It’s a pretty awesome job in itself as I get to make people happy. I’m expanding my product line and will be doing home parties n the Ottawa area in the fall. I think it’s going to be an interesting business year to say the least.
Writing wise, I’m still plugging away at Maple. She’s a great character and I think her first appearance in a story will not be her last one. I’m sitting at 3700 right now and I’m pretty happy at my first attempt at a story genre other than horror. I’m hoping to have it done and submitted by the end of the month, I started it for an anthology and Maple just happened. I’ll be doing more with her in the future so keep an eye out for more Maple.
What else…? Oh stand-up. No, not you, don’t get up from your seat… “You should be a stand up comedian” is one is the most commonly mentioned phrases to me and yes, I want to do stand up. I’ve been jotting down the stories I think I would want to use for an upcoming open mic night somewhere, some future time. Who knows, I might be alright at it. It they don’t laugh I prob will. So I’m gonna do it… Or at least try to.
