||ExplicitDay 200: 14 kilometres!||Whoo! Scheduled for a 12k today, felt daffy, and ran 14 kilometres instead. And I feel… good. 2/3 of the half-mara. Could I have done the whole half-marathon today? Maybe! But I have to get to work. So I might be brutally tired later today,||7/20/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitDay 199: Checklists and productivity||Here’s where I’ve landed on the productivity thing: I’m going to be cloning my work system, but on per-project basis. Checklists and productivity work well together for me. And since I have a lot of me-only projects,||7/19/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitDay 198: Steady On||Things are about to get real with the half-marathon training. 5k tomorrow, then 12 on Thursday; repeat Saturday-Sunday. Next week we start getting into 18k; running will be steady on until then. I’m kind of excited; I also kind of stupidly set my fake .||7/18/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitDay 197: Breakin’||It’s been a great weekend, and a bit of breakin’ from routine for an extended cheat day — not going nuts or anything, but it’s hard to be on top of everything and still host guests, so I’ll take that excuse to slack off a bit.||7/17/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitDay 196: Gratitude||Having an old friend stay over on her way through town. And catching up in the way you do with people you haven’t seen in 20-plus years. It’s amazing, when I start breaking down the last two decades of my life,||7/16/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitDay 195: Couples Running||I’ve been enjoying couples running, on Saturday mornings, with my wife lately. We don’t run together often, because I started at the kind of 10k range when she was doing couch to 5k, and I’m now training up to a half-marathon as she’s training up||7/15/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitDay 194: Surprise Sober People||Sometimes you get a nice surprise when sobriety just pops up out of nowhere. Surprise sober people are the best. Especially when it’s just no big thing. I’ve been messing around with Stitcher Premium, because I love me some comedy.||7/14/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitDay 193: Retroactive Food Logging||Retroactive food logging is never as bad as I think it’s gonna be. Here’s the sequence: I do the podcast, and I get distracted by stuff, and I just sort of post it. I get in that flow. Then I turn my computer off, get up,||7/13/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitDay 192: Drinking Lots of Water||I’ve been doing really well with drinking lots of water. Aiming for 3.5 litres per day. A few notes on this… About 90% of it is consumed at work, on work days. I have a desk job, and brought a jug in. Our building has a no-bottled-water policy,||7/12/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitDay 191: Morning Distractions||Checking in first, quickly, on the water drinking thing. It’s going well! Much harder when I’m at home than at work, but I’m powering through. I’m getting bad about morning distractions, though. I got back from a run at 6:15,||7/11/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
