I can't do it
Saturday, June 23, 2007
really means I can't do it easily. At least that is the way it seems to me. I hear it and say it all the time, " I can't bend", "I can't walk", "I can't jog", "I can't ....(fill in the blank)".
Yep, my 50+ body is not supple, bendable, stretchable. Why should it be? I nelglected, abused and mistreated it for 30 years and now all af a sudden I want it to respond like it was 20? Yea, right, like that's goin happen. It's pay back time. Want to do squats? Well the price is lots of pain - work thru it. Want to jog-get the knee brace. Do it every day, make yourself stretch that extra 1/4 inch. Go ahead, whine, just do it!!!!
Push MYSELF hard, truth be told it gets easier and when it does, push harder, do more!
