trouble with motivation

The semester is coming up…and I am having trouble getting motivated to do the mundane stuff that must be done prior to the start of classes.

I’ll work on syllabi and early notes this afternoon (after lunch)

I did have a lovely, untimed run in the park (4 miles) after weight lifting:

rotator cuff
pull ups: 4 sets of 10 prior to pressing, 1 set after
incline: 10 x 135, 7 x 150, 6 x 150
military/row/pull down superset:

military; 2 sets of 12 x 50 dumbbell, seated, supported, 10 x 40 standing
rows: 2 sets of 10 x 60 dumbbell (each arm), 10 x 110 (machine)
pull down: 2 sets of 10 x 160 shoulder friendly grip, 10 x 150 (alternate machine)

I practice headstand too.

Then the jog; Cornstalk classic course; some woman ran past me on the uphill then slowed to a very slow walk.

Baseball: last night’s game started 1 hour late due to rain; mostly empty stadium put there were people around me (lots of scouts)

Chiefs won 6-0; the pitcher struck out the first 4 batters and then worked himself out of a bases loaded situation.

Chiefs lead 1-0 (passed ball score) until the 8’th inning, where they got a second run and then a grand slam. Bad base running (attempt to steal home) cost them a bit. But it is hard to argue with a 6-0 win.
