Project Gear Room: Part 2
It's been about a month since my last report on the gear room. Since then, I've completed the drywall mudding and the painting. I'm very pleased with how the walls turned out. They are very smooth, and with the exception of a couple spots, it's impossible to tell where the drywall joints are. I've also added some new light fixtures. They are basically track lights which are connected to a smart dimmer switch.
I'm in the process of finishing the floor and the garage step. My plan with the floor is to add a black, high-gloss concrete sealer, this will protect the floor and should look very good. I've pressure washed the floor to clean it up and have filled in the contraction joints for a seamless floor surface. I need to wait for the joint filler to dry before applying the sealer. In the meantime, I will be finishing the garage step. It's a single stair made out of pine, and it was pretty rough looking, so I decided it would be worth a spruce-up. I will be staining it black and adding a protective coating.
I anticipate these things to be done sometime the week of April 19th, at which point I will move my gear from the future baby's room to the garage. There will be many more things to do after my gear has been moved, but the bulk of the project will be complete by that point.
I am currently training for the Green River marathon at the beginning of June, as well as Ironman 70.3 Coeur d'Alene at the end of June. It's still a mystery as to whether or not these races will actually take place as scheduled with Covid-19. I'm mainly focusing on running at this point, especially with my usual garage training setup in disarray. And I'm trying to take things a bit easier anyway, I have been really struggling with tempo and interval workouts lately, and it may be a sign of overtraining, so I'm trying to sort that out too.
