Last Friday the rain vanished and temperatures rose. Spring arrived very late, but was met this afternoon by kids swimming in the canal, jumping off a bridge and rowing their rubber boats. I took a walk after a full day of getting introduced to AI and Machine Learning. Perfect way to end the afternoon and start the evening.
It looked like yet another warm winter day from the inside. In reality a chilly northern wind required gloves, which I obviously left at home. Nevertheless fresh air (full of pollen) was exactly what I needed after a training to improve my LinkedIn profile. A short round outside definitely improved my internal profile.
In the charts below you can clearly see the effect my Apple Watch has on my behaviour. I got it at August 30th. The data before that date is incomplete, as I don’t carry my phone in my pocket around the house. Therefore all data before August 30th only includes outdoor movement. That said, I made a strong commitment to myself to go outside for a brisk walk of at least half an hour every day, starting September, and apart from the days I was ill I stuck with that commitment. It also shows a downward trend so after publishing this I’ll put on my shoes and coat, select a nice podcast to listen to and make my round again.
