Being physically worn out is a good feeling. Right now, I have that feeling. Today, there was a lot of moving around outside and that is how I earned being beat.
The weather, after several days of cold and rain, turned clear and warm. Not hot, warm, 81°F. It was a day to spend outside, so I did spent it outside.
The morning began with a run. River, my lab and her friend, Coco, a lab that lives about a mile away, ran with me. After the run, I got in about 30 minutes of archery practice before moving onto the lawn.
When I cut my grass I ride on a small John Deere tractor. It’s a lot easier than pushing a mower. When I cut the grass I also cut one or more of my neighbors lawns. Today, I cut only one of the neighbors’ lawns – the neighbor that allows me use of his acreage across our road (it’s a dirt/gravel path more than street, so I call it a road) for my 3D range.
Then, I tended to the 3D range. Weed whacking, trimming and blowing away debris and clumps of grass follows the mowing. The entire process takes about five and half hours.
There was plenty of daylight and great weather remaining. It was prefect for cycling. The morning run wasn’t hard and cycling was also at an easy pace. Cycling lasted a little more than an hour.
Finishing up the outside play was another two hours of archery practice. All of this was 3D focused. The 3D range, freshly manicured was irresistible.
This day began at 5:30 am and the exercise part of it ended at 5:30 pm. It was a good day to be outside and I worn myself out taking advantage of it.
