Since my fall a couple weeks ago, I stopped my exercise schedule, which had for several weeks been at least seven 15+ minute periods in my aerobic range per week, to be done on at least five different days. Even walking was painful after that fall — it pulled on the scars and made them bleed.
I realized yesterday that, especially in combination with the tendency to sleep too much the healing has entailed, has had a really crappy effect on my mood. So one of my todo items for today was to get started on that again.
I took a 15 min walk at an average pulse of 120, and a 21 min walk at 122. So I think that's a ringing success.
The one thing that was specifically on my calendar today was a genius bar appointment at the Apple Store. That happened; my problem was happily resolved, and I had a nice talk with the guy at the genius bar. Which leads to my next point:
Another thing I decided yesterday was that I need to be trying to apply for at least one job — any remotely reasonable job — every day, instead of waiting for a great job to somehow fall into my lap. So as we were finishing up, I said, "So, switching gears here, do you guys have any openings?"
So I've just finished submitting my application for a genius bar position at the Cambridgeside store. It is a vastly lower-level position than I've held in something like fifteen years. But, damn it would be good to have a regular gig again. And, as a dear friend pointed out to me yesterday, while I'm unlikely to be hired by people who don't know me into as senior a position as I'm used to, I am highly likely to be promoted into such a position by people who've seen my work. So here's hoping.
