Month 11, Day 323

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic today but woke up right on time after a solid night's sleep.  I was not sore in any noteworthy way from my my workout yesterday.  Because I like being a morning person I put on my running shorts and shoes and went directly into a warm up routine of 25 jumping jacks and a little stretching.   I took off running in Grand Junction, CO and ran to my usual park where I did 6 pull ups, and 6 chin ups.  Then back through the neighborhood on the less busy street.  It was during this park of the run that I realized that the summer was beginning to turn to autumn.  The air was cool and the there was a wind blowing that did not contain the same summer heat I have become accustomed to.  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 and I continued my routine.  I did 3 sets of 18 dumbbell rows (9 each arm, 54 total) using a bocce ball set 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 well and I was impressed that I scored 13 points.  It probably had to do with the alarm being more like 3 minutes long.  During the sitting meditation, I breathed deeply and at the end the sensor read 19, just 6 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 a bagel and an afternoon of of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (8 miles, Odometer = 1094.5).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.
