Return to the routine
On Thursday I went back to my regular tasks at my main job after two days on the special project. It was a welcome return. While I didn’t mind the special project, after more than three years on this job I’ve gotten to a point where I enjoy predictability. And routine, though it’s a closely related concept. Having become this way probably has some disadvantages, but I’m not concerned. It helps that things don’t usually change much. Actually that’s not entirely true, in that every two weeks I start a new cycle, but even though the cycles may be quite different my ways of handling them are much the same. If that makes any sense at all.
In any event, the day went by quickly enough, and with no work that evening at the Major Home Improvement Retailer we went out for burgers at Five Guys. Always one of my favorites. Friday was my day off, and I didn’t do too much. Just enjoyed the day.
I made it to the gym both evenings. On Thursday I just did some upper-body machine work. Friday was tougher, with one-arm dumbbell rows, 6 × 8 × 95/95. Not bad. Then I did Life Fitness leg presses, 5 × 8 × 370.
