I went to a ninja gym yesterday, and I felt very out-of-place. I was not uncomfortable, but I felt how disconnected the people in this place – this place, even – and I were. I also saw how I wanted us to be more connected, to be connected. There were plenty of things, obstacles, that did not interest me, of course, but there were significantly more that truly struck my interest. However, given that I am currently so out of shape as I am, – no, not fat, just not very fit right now – I really wasn’t able to do much with a lot of the obstacles. I envied the fun my brother had just in attempting so many of the obstacles. I want to have that kind of fun.
And so, my goal is to do some sort of upper body exercise every day (not too hard, but just enough to make habit of it), get a pair of gloves (because I am SO uninterested in having torn up or rough palms), and go back again when I feel I would have even the slightest chance of succeeding at some more of those obstacles at that ninja gym. Also, I am considering a go at some CrossFit gyms, to test it out. I might only be willing during the cooler season, but that’s better than never for something that strongly interests me (I live in Houston, recall.).
That’s what my plan is at the moment!
