Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic waking up early to run before it got too hot. I was definitely tired and would have liked to sleep more, but I got out of bed and put on my shorts and running shoes. My leg muscles were really sore from my workout yesterday and my upper body was sore too, showing signs of delayed onset of muscle soreness from climbing two days before. I like being a morning person and I did a warm up routine of 25 jumping jacks and some stretching and then took off running in Grand Junction, CO. I ran a down a usually busy street that was more serene than normal to Rocket Park where I found a bar to do 5 pull ups, and 5 & 2/3 chin ups before running back to my starting point. On the way back, about half way my right ankle and my left knee threatened to bother me, but both were not bad enough to stay around. At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (2.0 miles, Odometer = --.- miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: Back at my home, I stretched for a few minutes while I cooled down before I continued my routine. I did 3 sets of 16 dumbbell rows (8 each arm, 48 total) using a backpack full of books as weight, stretch. I also did 3 sets of 8 push-ups (24 total). I continue to enjoy my commitment to not using gym machines because I don't need a gym.
