Warning: Do NOT stop your exercise routine!

Where are the warning signs when you REALLY need them?
Life needs warning signs more than a highway. I can tell when I'm headed for a curvy road. It can be hard to know that there are challenges ahead.
This winter weather was unpredictable with intense storms.
I let the weather stop me in my tracks. Or more accurately, the weather stopped me from tracking.
Because this February was a month without exercise minutes. The year before I noted that I was out every day except for Leap Year's Day! From 28 to zero! A few attempts kept March from being a zero. Snow and ice stopped me. I could not get myself to spend time in the basement with my friend, the treadmill. Why not? A spiral downward. Who was it who called it stinkin thinkin?
Too easy to get off track! No more excuses. Peace of mind requires movement. More patience, more internal calmness, more energy --- all related to more movement. April. Springtime. I'm surprised that 2 months without my routine slowed me down. I feel the miles. I feel the minutes. Maybe that's good. Reset time.
Time to build a base. Build a solid foundation. Slowly adding to get back where I was only two months ago. The miles are back. Minutes. I still have time to get faster and beat last year's time.
