A Spell of Lethargy

Due to lots of family commitments and work, I just couldn’t find the time to update this blog every day. During this time, I did go for a swim (4x100, 4x50, and 4x25) and that felt quite good. Midway through the swim I realised how hungry I was and…

I Went for a Short Run

Remember when I mentioned that sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and I can’t sleep again? Last night was one of those nights. The good thing is that I decided to go for a slow jog and covered about two kilometres early in the morning,…

Et Tu, Apple Watch?

I rely very heavily on my Apple Watch Series 2 for fitness tracking, as I’ve made abundantly clear on this blog. Of late though, the watch has been dying on me quite a bit. The battery level stays at 100 percent for a few hours even if I use…

Some Positive Signs

I wanted to wake up early and exercise today but I chose not to. Waking up at 5 am for swimming thrice in one week has been a good change and even without setting an alarm I managed to wake up well before 7 am. That’s a big change…

Chasing 1650

Thanks to my “human alarm”, I managed to wake up this morning and I went for a swim. I’ve decided to give [Ruth Kazez’s 0 to 1650m](http://ruthkazez.com/swimming/ZeroTo1mile.html) nonstop swimming plan a go and that’s what I did this morning. I managed…

Another Lethargic Morning

Bad news once again. Once again this morning, I couldn’t force myself out of bed. To be honest, I didn’t sleep early enough and I’m not even too upset about missing exercise. Yes, that’s the truth. I hate strength training and skipping that doesn’t make…

A New Swimming Goal

When alarms have no effect on you, it’s great to have someone to wake you up. Thanks to this person, I dragged myself out of bed and went for a swim early in the morning. Today’s swim went much better than the previous one. In what could’ve…

One Step Back

Let’s start with the bad news today. I slept early enough, but once again I just disabled all alarms in the morning and woke up rather late. If this happens once a week, it usually happens throughout the week, but I need to double down and fix this tomorrow…

My First Workout of 2018

Forty-one days into the new year and 45 days since my last workout, I’ve finally started exercising again. A close friend was leaving on an early morning flight and I told myself that I need to wake up to drop him to the airport, so I might as well…

Entering the Home Stretch

This morning, my Apple Watch reminded me to keep closing my activity rings for three more days to get that perfect week achievement. Today’s Friday, so it shouldn’t  be too difficult to achieve this. The big challenge will be over the weekend, when I usually tend to slack.…
