slow start

I am a slow starter this morning. I made it to the gym, but not as early as I'd hoped, so I didn't have time to do a circuit of weights; need to figure out how better to organize my workouts to make them most efficient. I did some squats and crunches, plus fifteen minutes of elliptical, which was more intense than the treadmill. I see the trainer on Friday during my usual lunch hour.

Rehearsal was pretty fun, some bits swinging along beautifully, some still sounding scared. We're close to the concert now, so it's getting better at an exponential rate.

And I need to write this week, badly. I wrote around 800 words on the train down to D.C. on Friday, stopping only when the train pulled into Union Station. But I skipped the rest of the weekend, and Monday and Tuesday. Today, I'm going to go write immediately after I leave day job. Hopefully, I can get some lunchtime writing done on Thursday, as well, and after work on Friday. My usual Saturday session is being replaced by workshop this weekend, so I think Sunday will have to be a dedicated writing and gym day.
