Hello my Sparkies,
I went for my first training workout for my 5k today. I did just under 3 km in just over 30 minutes, which I was happy with.
For the most part the workout was a very pleasant experience but one encounter has left me with baggage which I need to process. One of the people I encountered along my route preached to me that wearing black meant that I had no chance of ever entering heaven.
The interesting things here are I don't believe in the Christian theology's concept of heaven, my vision of the summerland is much less restrictive. I think part of my baggage is the fact that I wished I had handled the encounter differently, but I am not sure how.
I was planning on doing the Jillian Michaels DVD tonight again but I am actually tired and am not fully recovered. The important thing is for me to remind myself that I can do this slowly, I did not get this out of shape quickly and it will take me time to get into shape...but I am moving in the right direction, or at the very least making sure that I am not moving in the wrong direction.
We had a very pleasant family get together today and one of my extended family members who is a professional sports trainer made an interesting point. He said that whenever he ever finds out one of his players has been taking illegal substances he reminds them that they can get the results without them, it just takes longer.
Love and lots of disjointed rambles,
