Rest the Flesh
Today, I’m resting the flesh. I finished my second 5 K yesterday. Its quite funny, cause I am NOT the runner. I’m just a 53 year-old who is into physical fitness.
I’ve started to include running into my regime though. I may run one mile every other day, but that is about it. It is just another activity to confuse my muscles.
If you ask anyone who knows me, they will tell you that I can be spotted just about
any where in the Picayune area riding my bicycle. Now there’s my true love. Last month I started to make a goal ~ challenging myself to 100 miles per month. Even though I left early to go on vacation, I somehow managed to put in a smooth 132 miles in my ride.
My second love is Yoga. Third is strength training.
I’ve been told by WAY to many people… ‘How do you find the time?”. If you put aside one hour or more for yourself, to exercise then you would be able to find it. Aren’t YOU worth it? Instead of saying “I don’t have the time’, Try saying “It’s not a priority”, and see how it feels.
Moving is so important. It lubricates our joints. It strengthens our muscles. Its just plain HEALTHY.
I do not know where this journey is going to take me, but I know one thing : I’ll keep MOVING.
