Month 11, Day 321

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic today but woke up a little later than I had hoped after a sleep where my body again demanded 8 hours.  I was a bit sore in my legs from my my workout yesterday.  It was hard to get up but I like being a morning person and when I did finally roll out of bed, I displayed some pretty bad discipline.  I skipped my usual warm up routine and did 0 jumping jacks and very little stretching.   I was running with Lisa today so we took off running in Grand Junction, CO.  We ran through the college campus which was alive with student life in the early morning and around the perimeter of the golf course before ending up back at our starting point.  Because of the amount of morning traffic, I skipped running by my usual park and, therefore, I did 0 pull ups, and 0 chin ups.  At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (4.1 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 and I continued my routine.  I did 3 sets of 18 dumbbell rows (9 each arm, 54 total) using a backpack as weight, stretch.  I also did 3 sets of 9 push-ups (27 total).  I continue to enjoy my commitment to not using gym machines because I don't need a gym.

Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health

Spiritual Reading: Faith ND

Meditation: I set my alarm for 2 minutes walking meditation and 2 minutes sitting meditation as part of my meditation practice using my stress eraser.  During the 2 minutes walking meditation (one, 6 foot section) the sensor tracked ok and I scored 6 points.  During the sitting meditation, I breathed deeply and at the end the sensor read 15, 8 more for sitting (Point Count = -,---).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually although I do note the paradox of public spirituality.


Reward time = breakfast of cereal with oats and an afternoon of of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (8 miles, Odometer = 1086.6).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.
