2 days in a row I’ve completed my rings. Yes, I am slave to my Apple Watch. Its unending task mastering has me out walking the dog, in the dark, up a 13% hill for me to get in the last 20 minutes of exercise for the day to close the Exercise Ring. I know, I know. But you know what ? I’m actually quite pleased with myself for having the discipline to get myself out to do this under the circumstances.
I don’t know why I am impulsed to do it, but it feels good to have accomplished something quick and effective and clearly beneficial for my health.
Having had 4 minutes left on the exercise counter to reach the slave masters’ required target, I embarked upon a quick 4 minute circuit training routine, adapted from those famous 7 minute workout routines. Once the rings had been closed, it was off for a hot shower.
I live a sedentary life, one that prevents me from exercising adequately in the day. Where I live, the question of working out at lunchtime is rather complicated — it’s hot, it’s very humid and more importantly we have no showers. Nay a room where I can cat lick myself to clean, for an afternoon client meeting. Pouring with sweat at a meeting is rather frowned upon for some reason.
I decided I should embark upon Matthew 2.0 this year, having upgraded Matthew 1.0 to 1.8 over the course of last year. Closing these rings, is part of that upgrade process.
