Wednesday is never an exciting day for me when it comes to “the day of the week” that it is. I don’t care about hump day. I don’t care that the week is halfway done. The day I care about is Friday, because then I know once I’m out of work my weekend begins. Other than that, it’s just another day before another day of work. But I do enjoy it because I get to do some more weight lifting, get to enjoy time with my family and get to live another day.
Though today may have been slightly lower on the awesome-scale than normal simply because I was so sore and tired all day long. I already explained how weight lifting and running and HIIT and swimming and aerobics all equal pain… and how lack of sleep from said pain equals tired. Well, it was an all day thing. I had to drink more coffee, I just had to. And as I told my wife, I don’t think it ever tasted better than it did yesterday morning.
Once I got past being whiney, the rest of the day went well. Work was busy and along with exciting news I got plenty of not-so-exciting news. The gym was almost all mine for the first half of my workout and I didn’t even notice that I was sore while lifting. And then I took my son out to dinner for some dad-son time and enjoyed that (and the chicken nuggets I had). Which that reminds me… the other sort of stinky thing about Wednesday’s is I don’t get to see my wife much due to work, gym and our “dates” with the kids.
All-in-all it was a good day and I’m glad it’s over. Because today is another day of work…
