It is 9:00am and I am finished my exercising for the day. I did a killer 7am sports conditioning workout at the gym. Imagine being challenged both in strength training and cardio conditioning for one hour ....then multiply this torture by 10x and now you have the sports conditioning class at my gym. In the past I would take this class , then do strength training for an hour THEN a killer spin class for another hour and THEN yoga. I did this for the last 2 years EVERY Saturday. And I wondered why I my knees bothered me , my shoulders were hurting and let's not talk how long my sprained ankle took to heal.
2013 will be different - everything has healed and now at 57 I know that I need to respect the body. I will listen to my body - realizing that there is a point of negative return when you do too much exercising. Today - I gave the class my all and every muscle in my body is singing that beautiful tune from having been worked to capacity and right about now the endorphins have kicked in and I am smiling fool
.....maybe I will add a 5 mile run later ...It is going to take me awhile to get the hang of this .....
