My Time at the Gym

I’ve been spending three hours a day at the gym. Don’t be too impressed.

My apartment is on the top floor of my building. For the last four days, I’ve been awakened by the patter of work boots right over my bed. Workmen had come to repair the roof of my entire apartment. This was a good thing, but they worked from 8:30 AM until 1:00 in the afternoon and were noisy.

The first day wasn’t too bad, but after three hours, I went to the gym for a walk and a short workout, had lunch, and returned home.

Second day, I ate breakfast, got ready for the day, packed up my writing materials, and headed for the Gym.

As time progress, the overhead work became louder.

Third day, I made breakfast and took it with me to the gym.

Fourth day, the noise was such that I got up and headed for the Gym! I bought a large sandwich. I eat the first half for breakfast and the last half for lunch.

I arrived home just in time to learn the roof was finished. Yea!

While at the gym:

I’d been reading Conflict, Action and Suspense by William Noble and was behind on my reading. The gym was a good place to read and be inspired.

I worked in half hour shifts, read the book, then applied what I learned to my series. The next half hour, I walked a half-mile and lifted lightweights. I repeated the shifts until I was ready to go home.

I got a surprising amount of work done.

What about you? Have you had something unexpected happen were you got a lot accomplished?
