A weekend of adventure – A Friday in the city


First Weekend of April – 02-Apr-2021 through 04-Apr-2021

It’s been a while since I’ve had a full adventure weekend. I’ve been kind of floating around between adventures this spring, not really sure what I want to be doing and feeling a bit aimless. I don’t know if it’s the longer days, the solitude, or what… but for better or worse, it’s been a real challenge motivating myself to do much else aside from go to work, go to the gym, and try to regenerate my energy at home by laying on the couch like a lazy bear.

This weekend, I planned it out. I set goals, timetables, and decided to move. To charge forward and to try and drive myself out of the funk that comes with the changing of the seasons!

This weekend, I had plans. But, plans don’t always have to start right at dawn, do they?

Sure, sometimes the plan involves an early start, and charging off into the wilderness. But, sometimes the plan is as simple as “sleep in until I feel good, and decide to get out of bed.”

Today was definitely one of those slow mornings. Gloriously, beautifully, excellently slow.

I got up exactly when I planned on getting out of bed… which is to say, I woke up without an alarm, and got going roughly when I felt like it. Which was actually fairly early for my history, maybe sometime around 9:30 or 10:00?

Meh, either way, I got going when I wanted to. I ate a nice breakfast, drank a nice cup of coffee on my balcony, and checked out the options for going rock climbing in the city.

With gyms opened again, I’ve been burning through my remaining punch passes for the gym that I used to have a membership at. I don’t know if I’ll keep going after they’re used up… but for now, it’s a cheap way to get my climbing muscles practiced.

So… yeah. I don’t really have much to say here. It was a nice day. I went rock climbing, then I went to a delicatessen for lunch, and then I came home and packed up for the next days adventures.

It was a nice day, you know? Calm and quiet, and I got done what I wanted to get done.
