Walking, gaming, programming repeat

It has been a good weekend and even as I type that I cannot believe it is Sunday already! At least I am off work again tomorrow. I’ve been up between 7 and 8 every day going out for a walk or on the treadmill (admittedly Smudge is waking me up earlier than I intend every day though!) As you can see from the countdown to the left there are 13 days left until the event. My goal is to do it at least 5 times. If I can do that then I will be happy.
