I KNOW that there are those that walk more than this, BUT, I am HAPPY.

Yes, I could easily walk more, the problem is that of TIME — my eternal nemesis. I now spend around 2.25 hours a day walking. That is a BIG chunk of time for I. SMILE.

I did NOT set out to walk ~500,000 steps a day.

I just changed ONE metric in my life. For 30-years I had followed this ‘3-days ON, 1-day OFF‘ paradigm. One day of rest, after each 3 days of exercise to let muscles recover. BUT, that was when I used to run — as opposed to walk. I don’t stress my muscles & body as much now. I still run — but not daily, and never too far. Yes, I am still ‘babying’ my knee after my quad tendon surgery last year. SMILE.

On my days off I walked less than 10K steps — INTENTIONALLY.

Then on April 17, 2020, I stopped doing that. I decided to TRY & hit 10K every day — though aiming for less than 16K steps on my days off.

And this is the result. I am happy.

Am I fit. I think I am OK for somebody who will be 67 in 2-months.

My VO2 Max is 42 & per Garmin my fitness age … Well, this picture says it all.



Am I happy & content. Hhhhhm.

I would like to lose another 10 pounds & get my VO2 Max. up. But, beggars can’t be choosers.

I do NOT DELUDE myself. All of this means NOTHING. I can have a stroke or a heart-attack TODAY. SMILE. I am not totally stupid — just partially. SMILE.

But, I like walking. I take pictures while I walk. I, quite literally, smell the roses. I think. I am happy.

Thanks. Cheers. SMILE.

All Of The TV ‘Government Shutdown’ Clocks Are ONE DAY OFF — i.e., Day Short; ’12’ When It Should Be ’13’.

by Anura Guruge


CNN. Go to cnn.com and check.


MSNBC — TV channel. Photo of TV.


WHY?

Because they are counting the DIFFERENCE.

It needs to be INCLUSIVE.


People do it all the time when they are doing dates.

They take the DIFFERENCE between the two days. For some applications that is ‘OK’, BUT not when you are counting something like a SHUTDOWN.

You have to INCLUDE Day 1, in this case, Saturday, December 22, 2018.

My calendar above shows it clearly.

But, try a simple example. Shutdown started Dec. 22. So, how many days shutdown at the end of Dec. 24. It is 3-days, NOT 2.

I actually saw Anderson Cooper talking about the shutdown being in its 13th day, above the CNN clock that said ’12’!

Amazing.
