Isaac Newton was right.

Unless acted on by an outside force, a body at rest tends to stay at rest and a body in motion tends to stay in motion. At least that’s what I remember from my HS/College Physics classes.
My body was in motion just about every day until 10 days ago.
Then the outside force hit. Some invisible germ!
My fitness tracking during these 10 days has consisted of counting how long I could go without coughing or wheezing. I’ve barely been off the couch in all that time.
This morning I realized that I really didn’t feel all that bad anymore not physically anyway. However, my mental state was definitely dragging me down.
This morning I was supposed to be running in a “Predict your Time” 4 mile race. I sent in my registration just before I got sick. It’s a beautiful day, perfect for a race and I’m not there. There’s a big scowl on my face right now.
This body has been at rest for over a week and needs some outside force to act upon it.
While slowly catching up on SP, I took a good look at my own page where I posted my fitness plan. Each day is supposed to begin with a stretching/flexibility routine. I haven’t even been doing that. (My scowl deepens!)
Stretching/flexibility will be my starting point.
The Saturday “distance run” isn’t an option, but distance and speed are relative, so I’ll go for an easy walk.
Thank you SP for being my “outside force”
