Day #1: Cardio With A Chance Of Thunderstorms

This morning was a comedy of errors, but I eventually got my workout in and all is good with the world. 

Tim Shevlin wants me to do my cardio immediately when I wake up. Like, wake up, chug some water, and get after it within ten minutes.

This differs wildly from my usual routine, which is to journal a little, drink my coffee, listen to some music, and maybe play with Wendy’s balls a bit while she sleeps… then workout.

So today was my first morning trying the new routine, and it was a bit of a mess.

I woke up at 6:08 and saw that it was still dark, so brewed up a quick coffee, grabbed my headphones and water bottle, and drove up to the gym.

I got there, jumped on a treadmill… And realized my headphones were dead.

Fuck that. I’m not going to stand on a treadmill without Netflix like some sort of heathen. 

So I walked out and drove home, cursing the entire way.

As soon as I got home, things got better.

I parked the car and immediately hopped on my bike (it was light out by then) and did a quick 6 miles.

This image isn’t entirely accurate because I stopped at the corner and chatted with my barber for five minutes and for some reason my bastard app didn’t pause my workout:

Then I came home and showered, and now I’m on about my day.
