I'm sitting here with my gym gear on, so I might go and work out for an hour and see if that kick starts me. Or alternatively perhaps go and sit in the park with a poetry book. Or drink a few cups of coffee? Of the three I suppose the gym seems most constructive.
Or perhaps just write off today?
Incidentally I meant to post a bit about the experience of going to the hotel gym at Eastercon. It was like space marines bootcamp. Everyone had short hair and a black vest, and nearly everyone had tattoos except me. I think pretend space marines is a good fitness model for SF fans.
I am pleased in general because my fitness level just hopped up a step - I know it will plateau now - so I am going faster for longer than ever before (I mostly use the rower and the cross trainer). At my age it takes quite a bit of persistence to jump a level, and I am still pitifully low, but it really encourages me that I see a change. I don't seem to be getting any thinner, worse luck, but I am definitely getting stronger and improving my stamina. It makes me feel more physically confident too.
