Day 1 - Now is Day 1

I really like today! Basically it was my first crosscountry "race" if you want to call it race and if you want to call cross country.

It was running uphill the "volcan de agua" that is like 11 km running all the way to the top (couldn't do it running of course), it was crazy! And the crazier thing is that people really do it. Moreover, people ran 21 Km from Antigua to the top of the freaking volcano!. Annnddd yeah, I didn't like it that much, I still don't see the point more than just exercising because while running you barely see the environment and the views and stuff like that, then, you get to the top and you don't see sh*%$t either as everything is foggy, freezing and packed of people who stay there like half an hour and start coming down. Oh yeah, and BTW coming down is even sh*%$ttier as you are already tired and you don't rest anything at the top, so every step of the downhill is like hell.

Buuut, of course, you always learn a lesson from everything. I learned that climbing a volcano like that is sh*%$t !

Naaah, seriously, I learned that first of all everybody has different approaches of life, in this case, the goal is the top and nothing else matters, while people like me (I would say) are more the type of enjoying the journey. When you go up to camp on a volcano, will be harder of course with more weight, longer ways, but, despite that, the goal is still reaching the top, you actually learn to enjoy the journey that will take you there. So, enjoy the journey and have a great life.

I also learned how to do a weekly review of my tasks and a great way to track my habits (sounds promising).https://www.skillshare.com/classes/Real-Productivity-How-to-Build-Habits-That-Last/1744818959/projects" target="_blank"
