And the reason for this physical exhaustion? My decision to walk almost 7 miles in an hour and a half after work tonight.
You see, I'm on a bit of an exercise kick. This has been brought on by me realising that for a long time now my evenings and weekends have been filled with long periods of inactivity, plus the fact that my clothes are becoming filled with a fatter, slobbier version of myself. And as I'm pretty sure most Women don't go for the "Comic Book Guy" look (from the Simpsons - see below), I thought getting in shape might help me in my search for love.
|You want me......don't you.....|
But tonight is not the first time I have peeled my lardy frame off the sofa - oh no! I have been doing little bits for a few weeks now. It's not much - just press ups and crunches on alternate days. I have two apps on my phone - one for press ups and one for crunches - which are helping me work towards a specific goal. In this instance I am hoping to eventually be able to do 100 press ups continuously, and similarly do 200 crunches continuously. In addition to this, I try to do a "plank" for 75 seconds every hour while I am at work, on the days that I do my press ups, and I lift 25kg drums of oil in 1 set of 10 every hour at work on the days that I do my crunches. And then yesterday I went for a brisk walk to a local Railway Project, and found that I got from home to the Railway Project and back in an hour and a half. I found it was a good workout, and so decided to do it again tonight. It has really taken it out of me though, so I won't be doing this every night.
Although I did pass in both directions a nice young lady out jogging - so maybe I should go out again tomorrow just in case she is out there again......
