Feelin' Groovy

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

This week I am feelin' groovy.
Last week I was feeling puny.
An Autumn cold dropped by for a visit and I took the easy way out and slept late each morning rather than trek to the gym for my AM workout. This week I started back. It is amazing how much longer an hour on the treadmill is when you have laid off for about ten days. The clock just wouldn't move but the belt did. I did not realize I took so many steps in an hour. At least it seemed like a lot more. Monday was a challenge. Tuesday was less of a challenge and this morning, I had slipped back into the groove and it didn't seem to take as long and there didn't seem to be as many steps. I even managed to crank up the speed an extra mile per hour for three one and a half minute segments.

So, being back in the groove, I am feelin groovy

Old dogs are wise dogs. they recognize the signs that lead to things and react accordingly. Similarly, seasoned citizens have lived through a lot and observed a lot. Listen when they speak.
