Weekly simming 33/2017

I'll confess that there's been no progress this week. Mostly I've just been adjusting to being back to work, and playing Zelda in the evening. A bit of real life under the cut.

The weekend... Well, yeah. You may have heard, there was a violent attack close to where I used to live and work; I think it made it to international news to some extent. I got to know when coming home from work on Friday. A lot of "are you okay?" messages left that evening, thankfully I got the same answer to all of them. I'm fine, just... a lot of thoughts. I'm not sure what else to say to describe it, so maybe I'll leave it at that.

It was probably a good thing that I'd signed up for the yearly mini-distance triathlon for yesterday, all things considered. It was a little bit ex tempore, so I was kind of worried if I'd be in shape enough for it. In the end, I was able to make it to the goal, and I think I did pretty well all things considered. If there's one thing I've learned about exercise, that's wearing and monitoring a heart rate monitor. So when I started out too hard, I got warned and was able to slow down enough to make it to the end.

So today, I've been kind of stiff, but no major pains other than my neck that gave me trouble again, 'cause apparently any excuse is good enough for it to give trouble, including triathlon. It feels a lot better now, so hopefully that's the last of it.

So with those things, I haven't been simming. I kind of miss it again already, we'll see if I can get myself back in gear sometime soon.
