Month 13, Day 363

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic by waking up after a restful night's sleep.  I was not really overly sore from exercising yesterday.  I like being a morning person and I got up and put on running shorts and shoes.  I did a warm up routine of 25 jumping jacks some stretching outside before I took off running in Grand Junction, Colorado.  The morning was definitely an autumn morning.  There was frost on the ground from the cold temperatures the night before and it was just beginning to melt as the sun peaked through the trees. I ran my usual route along the busy road to Rocket Park where I used my favorite metal bar on the play structure to do 7 pull ups, and 7 & 1/8 chin ups before continuing the run.  As I ran back on the mellow street my effort was not difficult, as my body moved towards home.  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 the start, I stretched for a few minutes and I continued my routine of body weight training.  I did 3 sets of 20 dumbbell rows (10 each arm, 60 total) using a boccie ball set as weight, stretch.  I also did 3 sets of 10 push-ups (10 total).  It is fun to be able to add an extra rep to everything today as I am getting stronger.  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 did not have time to meditate today.
