Yesterday although the brain was wired and enjoyed sitting at my desk and getting lots of work done my body really did not want to do any exercise. I had biked 30 on Saturday and run 5 on Sunday...both days I walked Parker 2 miles. It has been really hot and humid and I am sure that can affect my desire. Anyway....after walking Parker in the morning yesterday I decided to go to our community pool and do my 30 laps at a very leisurely pace...this means basic breast stroke without pushing intensity. It felt good...after the first ten laps and it was a good choice for me.Today I had made up my mind to run with Ron and Parker (dog) for 3 miles and then come right into my fitness loft and do my strength training. At 6 am it was already 78 degrees...so the run was slow...but Parker loves it when both Ron and I are running and so he was good. I came back and immediately put on some rock music and began my strength workout. That felt great and I added planks and the yoga sun salutation and lots of stretches. I know I needed the stretches and my body was much more willing to participate today. It is not all mind set.... some days the body just says no!Mind is pretty good today with more desk work...working on revising a sermon I am giving at church the end of September. It is on spiritual gifts and mission fields.....all things I discovered on the Anchor House Ride in 2005. It can easily be revised and I am looking forward to working on it.
