Exhilarated Tiredness

Sunday, July 28, 2013

I have been experimenting with walking/jogging (all right, experimenting is probably a strong word because I have only done it twice). I managed to start off with a mile and a half straight, walked/jogged around the HS track, and mostly walked home with about a half mile of jogging for a total of at least 3 miles jogging. Needless to say, my body wasn't used to it and I was tired.

I had forgotten that this was the night that I was going to see a HS summer camp theatre production. If we had not already bought tickets and that a friend of mine was conducting, I probably would have begged off. I was tired and sore!

So,so glad I went. Although I didn't know anyone on stage, some of "my kids" were playing in the orchestra and I was really surprised to find that a former student who graduated 5-6 years and played the lead in one of our productions also played in the pit, so it was wonderful to reconnect with him. And then there was the added bonus of sharing that experience with a dear friend who also loves musical theater.

Sure, I am tired today. Did I tell you that I got home close to midnight? Not usually in my waking hours category, but last night added "footprints in my heart." What a wonderful phrase! The support here also leaves those footprints. Who leaves the footprints in YOUR heat? Thank them today for being such an important part of your life!

    When you get a chance, google the "Galloway Method of Running" and you will some great tips on the art of the walk/run and I am sure some training plans will pop up as well.

    Have a great week

    I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in years and my heart just melted, talk about footprints!
    I had forgotten about him until I saw him again, brought so many good feelings and the things we all did together back!
    Great blog!
    Thanks emoticon
