Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic this morning when I woke up after a fantastic night's sleep. It was a little later than I wanted to wake up and to my disappointment my lower back was again noticeably sore from my workout yesterday and moving boxes out of the house I was working at. I like being a morning person and after putting on my running shoes, and shorts, I did a warm up routine of 25 jumping jacks and some stretching before jogging off in Missoula, MT. I ran up the valley parallel to the creek before turning around and running on the other side of the creek. The cool morning summer air on the sunny summer day was refreshing. 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 11 squats (33 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 16 lunges (8 each leg, 48 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 16 “breaths” of planking, stretch. I can do all of this without needing a gym.
