Excellent Exercise Day

Today was a good day in general but turned out to be an accidentally excellent day on the exercise front. Did a good, vigorous 30-minute walk. Caught the bus and was at the gym 20 min later, so decided to turn my heart-rate monitor on for my weights routine (and keep my rest times between machines down) and see if I could turn it into a second aerobic workout. And it worked! 39 minutes at 117 avg. pulse.

A few months ago, I read an article in the New York Times about the Obamas' personal trainer, which mentioned that the President works out for an hour every day. To which my immediate response was This is a serious guy with the most serious imaginable job. If he can find an hour a day to take care of his body, what the hell is my excuse? I've had that as an unarticulated maybe-someday goal ever since.

Today, I did it. And it feels pretty damned great!
