Yes you read right. Only one more week and your daily sunrise SRG channel will be back broadcasting again as usual!
Until then I’m in vacation mode. Vacation means deviating from the norm and I am looking forward to getting back to it!
Today I went for an easy run on the beach to check up on the bird gang and see if my legs still know how to do their thing. Yes, the gang is still there. They spread their wings and bathed in the sun.
Sun?! You read right, the sun has returned as well. There might be a correlation between my running and the sun appearing, not sure though which way around and I leave that to you to figure it out. I might go and test your theories out tomorrow.
Other than that, what’s new? I’ve built myself a standing desk and plan to get used to it until I am back from vacation. I know all the sitting during working on the computer is bad for me. Especially after hours of focused work I tend to slouch more than sit. One of those episodes was responsible for a stiff neck which made me unable to run last year. I can’t have that! The past year I’ve implemented some huge changes, but little by little. Steps so small I didn’t notice. I want to keep doing that and the next item is to be more active during my working life. I’ve tried a standing desk situation before, when I had the neck issue actually, but as soon as the issue was gone, my comfy ergonomic super chair tempted me again … this will change I tell myself as I am standing here typing this on my new standing desk setup.
Another reason for me to do this, is to get used to increased TOF (stands for Time on your Feet as I learned from Randall). This will become more important the further I plan to run.
Today I didn’t sit down after my run and haven’t been sitting so far. What I am already noticing is the following: I keep shifting around a lot. I’m definitely not standing still. I plan to increase the time I stand bit by bit. A first goal could be to stand half the time. The first part of the day. Get to sit down for lunch.
Have you ever tried a standing desk or are you using one? If you might already work on your feet … maybe you could share how you got used to it?
