Month 7, Day 183

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a long night's sleep where I probably again slept in a bit too long.  I was sore from yesterday's workout but not noticeably so.  Being a morning person I spent some time reading and meditating before it was finally afternoon when I put on my running shoes (my stimulus), and running shorts and headed to a weekly social running club that met at the Red Lion River Inn in Spokane Washington.  Because of the social club aspect, I did a warm up routine of 0 jumping jacks and little stretching before I stepped outside into the beautiful, sunny Spokane afternoon.  I took off running with a crowd of people on the river tails in Spokane, WA.  At first the group was too condensed to make the running worth the effort, but eventually things spread out and I was able to lengthen my stride for the last 1/3 of the run.  At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (3.2 miles, Odometer = ---.- miles).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.

Fitness: Back at the apartment I was staying at, I stretched for 2 minutes but got distracted and was not able to continue my routine.  Yesterday was an upper body day so today was a lower body day.  I did 3 “sets” of each movement.  0 sets of 0 squats (0 total), then stretch. 1 sets of 10 lunges (5 each leg, 10 total), then stretch.  0 sets of 0 “breaths” of planking, stretch.  I can do all of this without needing a gym.

Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health

Spiritual Reading: Faith ND

Meditation: I set my alarm for 4 minutes of walking mediation and 4 minutes of sitting meditation as I continued my meditation practice using my stress eraser.  During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) I scored 18 points.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I was mentally distracted and I finished with a point count of 33, 15 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 eggs and toast, although I will admit that I actually wrote this tomorrow.

Journey far,
