I mentioned the other day to a friend that I missed the stamina I had in my younger days. Up until I was about thirty four I was in excellent physical condition. Remember the old saying of being careful what you wish for?
I ended up going non-stop from the time I crawled out of bed at one am in the morning until I accomplished the absolute minimum I had to have done and can crawl back in between five and seven pm. I did this for ten days straight. At that point I had not had any downtime to relax-at all. No time to clean house, take out the trash, do the dirty dishes or clean up the kitchen. No chance to check e-mail or get online. My weight lifting has been spotty and sword play outside of HEMA non-existant.
I have done well running so long and hard on so little sleep. I have definitely been building up that stamina to work longer and harder...This has also kick started my weight loss program again. I am pleased to say I have kept up my daily meditation. I have also managed to not lose any ground on my weight lifting either.
I finally got two days off in a row. I don't think I get two days off together for the next two weeks. After that looks like I'll be doing the scheduling. Hmm.....Let me back track a bit here. I have been working full forty hour weeks at my retail job. I have been prepping and learning to take over for my boss who was going on vaction for a week. Then it was two weeks, and now she has retired. She's not coming back. Until she is replaced I am now by default the lead of my little department. So that includes things like scheduling, and ordering supplies.
