I am seriously doubting my age at the moment. I’m in my late twenties and yet, come 9pm during the week (and sometimes weekends) it is highly likely that you’ll find me curled up in a blanket, on my sofa, fast asleep. I am not kidding.
Isn’t this something ‘old’ people do? Am I now one of said ‘old’ people?
I’ll admit, this is a fairly recent happening with me. When my parents were visiting my dad bought an exercise bike. They don’t live in this country and yet my dad felt like he needed something indoor-exercise related for him when he’s over. Enter the bike.
I figured, I may as well use it. It’s just there. And I’ve been told that exercise bike workouts are good for you.
So for the past month, or so, I’ve been getting on the bike for half an hour every other day. (I’ve also been told, rest days are important for you. Without rest days your body gets used the exercise.)
The last month, or so, is the exact time period I’ve been doing my best old-person routine of falling asleep in front of the telly by 9pm. Turns out exercise makes me tired! Or rather the old person side of me gets really tired by the addition of just a little bit of exercise. So much so that 9pm really is my limit on a weekday.
And that is your breaking news of the day.
