I'm an idiot (but what else is new?). While the kids ate breakfast in the kitchen, I snuck into the garage to row 2K on our erg. I don't know what possessed me -- I hate rowing, and I especially hate rowing 2K. But the Thursday classes at CrossFit Palo Alto did it a few days ago, and perhaps out of a misguided sense of obligation to suffer along with everyone else, I hopped onto the rower and pretty much wrecked myself for the rest of the day.
Thankfully, we had zero on the agenda today. A couple of our friends dropped by for brunch, and we made a Costco run, but for the remainder of the day, I pretty much lazed around. I didn't even work on the half-dozen or so unfinished blog posts that are languishing on my computer.
It felt nice to turn off my brain for a day. I just wish I'd remembered to rest my body, too.
