Yesterday I did what I'm about to go do again.
I got in my car, fought traffic, and went to the gym to run around the indoor track before work.
I changed my running interval though. I bumped up from the very-not-challenging 30 seconds run/4 minutes 30 seconds walk interval I had been doing last week to the slightly-more-challenging-but-not-by-very-much-more interval of 45 seconds running for every 4 minutes 15 seconds of walking.
I know, I know - it sounds like I'm sort of shaming myself. Shush. I'm actually thrilled to be making slow and steady progress towards more fitness. During those newer, slightly longer run intervals I really booked it, and enjoyed doing it each time I did.
I'm actually really looking forward to getting to it again today. I've been slowing coming back to a place of higher function in what I do.
Yesterday I also spent a chunk of time re-reading the novel I'm working on, so I can continue my work on it. I also spent some time discussing design of a side web-project of mine, and talking about blocking out weekly time to workon both of these things.
15 seconds matter, when you use them mindfully!
