Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic this morning when I woke up with the sun after a night's sleep that was restless at best including me waking up an hour earlier than I had intended and being wide awake. I was not overly sore which was a welcome change after my workout yesterday. I like being a morning person and I began with my customary warm up routine of 25 jumping jacks and some stretching before jogging off in Grand Junction, CO. I ran my short loop by nearby Rocket Park. As I ran I was able to prioritize the asphalt for many of my steps and waved good morning a couple different people who were up early watering their lawns. The cool morning air was very pleasant as I ran. 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 2 minutes and continued my routine. Yesterday was an upper body day so today was a lower body day. I did 3 “sets” of each movement. 3 sets of 10 squats (30 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 16 lunges (8 each leg, 48 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 15 “breaths” of planking, stretch. I can do all of this without needing a gym.
