A beautiful sunny day out there today. Just a bit nippier than I'd like, but at least Mr Sun is unobstructed.
Strangely enough, I still think of the weather in terms of what kind of day it would yield at the unemployment office(my former job). A day like today should help to brighten the spirits of those poor unemployed folks, even if it is just a placebo. . Harder to feel despair when the sun is shining. So the staff should enjoy an easier day.
At least that was my experience there. A direct correlation between the weather outside and the climate in the office.
Yesterday was an exercise day. 7 miles of Cardio- 6 on the bike and another mile on the treadmill. The bike is grueling, but it's great for the abdominal muscles. Actually it's great for the whole body, as the targeted area is pretty much in the center of the body. What they refer to as your "core".
I have yet to feel a 'high' from all this. An endorphin rush. No, it's gritty from start to finish, but at certain points, I do feel a sense of accomplishment. And my kishkas are getting stronger.
Music News. A couple new 'creations' yet to make their way onto my YouTube page. Hopefully some more practicing energy today. I try to practice on exercise days, and can sometimes get a second wind- but more often than not, I'm pretty whipped, and have just enough fuel left for a couple trips around the fingerboard.
So maybe my best guitar efforts will be on non-exercise days like today. We'll see. Still trying to make all of this work.
And that's all I've got for this Tuesday. A beautiful day, leaves to be raked( I hate raking leaves!)but also guitars to be played. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Tuesday to you! More later.
