Why I ♥ Meetings

The World is my Teleconference Room

I have a new meeting space, its the walking path around the water-filled ditch (read pond) in the subdivision adjacent our own, about a sixty second walk from the house. At four and a half miles an hour, each lap takes me about 10-minutes. This is where I take all my scheduled calls. We have a daily meeting at 0900 which lasts between half an hour and 45 minutes. I arrive early and get a good hour in in the mornings.

If we don't have an afternoon call, this is where I spend my lunch hour. I try to spend an hour there in the evenings as well.

Only I haven't been doing as much walking as I have running. Interval training. And I'm surprised that I'm able to do it the full hour, three times a day. Especially given my weight. That being said, I was afraid my Merrell's might no longer be up to the task. But "traditional" style running shoes have been replaced with minimalist "natural" "barefoot" running shoes. Shoes with no cushion, no heel, and no support. The opposite of what someone of my size/age requires.

catttitude and I were in the Wichita mall one Friday after work and I stopped at a Famous Footwear because we have one here in the outlet mall in Newton. I found the most expensive pair of traditional running shoes they had for $125 - Asics. I've never had a pair before but I think celtmanx wears them regularly. This morning I found them at the outlet mall for $90. They arrive in a week.

If the gel does what they say it does, I may end up increasing how many times a day I run, or how long.

I feel compelled to.

This exercise is made more effective because I gave up wine. This exercise is made more effective because I started getting adequate sleep. And this effective exercise attunes my mental health.

I am becoming more powerful at an alarming rate.

I do in fact still wear Asics. I just bought my umpteenth pair in March.

Funny what we remember/retain.

Speaking of remembering...what time can I expect you on Friday???

Sorry I missed your call. I assumed you were calling to explain this statement. You know how you History majors are with dates as compared to the rest of the world.

Well I referring to our phone call a few weeks ago where you said you would come help me move. As you know I could really use a hand. Then we were going to Jesse's party on Saturday night. Did you forget our conversation?

Yes, that was exactly 4 years ago in May 2008 when we moved out of our last home we owned. We've moved twice since then into rent houses, but we signed the title papers own new home today.

Your replies to my query are highly illogical and obtuse!!!

Way to go! You inspire me. I hope to work up to making serious use of the gym at work. Weights.

Beautiful picture of the walking area, by the way.

Yay! It can do only good.

And thanks. It wasn't my idea to put a camera into a phone, but it does come in handy from time to time :)
