Potential futures

Just a mile today…

…because I did three miles yesterday and am doing another three miles tomorrow in order to achieve various Strava challenges. I was disappointed not to get my planned half marathon length run done at the weekend, but have decided to spend another four weeks building up to it and am feeling a lot more comfortable with my running balance this week as a result.

It kind of feels like nothing is certain at the moment and so I’m sort of planning for a lot of potential futures instead of one definite one. One of the more frivolous of these potential futures involves me and Geth getting an XBOX Series X (the next-generation XBOX, released this Christmas) that will be backwards-compatible with the three previous XBOX models. As such, I have ordered a couple of XBOX One games online despite the fact that we don’t own an XBOX One. Getting in before everyone else does, while they’re still cheap 😀

I managed to get my work, admin and housework done fairly promptly today and so have been working on various game creation-related things for the rest of the day. I’ll be getting back to my non-running exercise tomorrow, but I’m hoping to get a good chunk of work done on the next game in the afternoon as well.

Spectrum-compatible graphic
For the upcoming Adventuron game jam, an optional challenge is to make the game portable to ZX Spectrum. This requires compatible graphics, and so I’ve been playing around with unfamiliar software today!
