IT’S FIVE AM – DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR HUSBAND IS?
We are still deep in the heart of get your body in gear for the new year week.
When I first met Glenn he was very proud of his exercise regime, which consisted of pouring a large single malt, grabbing a copy of Henry James, turning on the ball game and climbing on his exer-cycle. Now, I am all for multi-tasking but let’s face it how much can you really put into a work out when you’re balancing a scotch, prolix prose and the Yankees?
I told him if he really wanted to get anything out of his exercise he would have to be myopic while working out. He would have to throw himself into it and he could not do it in the house, in front of the TV, or while reading the first edition of anything.
Well, he took me at my word and I created sort of a monster when it comes to fitness. There are days when I want to crawl back into bed, but his commitment is so intense I feel compelled to keep up.
The other morning I actually woke up when he did and interviewed him on his way to the gym. I then went back to bed.
