Squeezing It All In

It’s been a very hectic week and will continue to be crazy around our house for the next week and a half. I have every excuse not to exercise, but have even more reasons why I will NOT miss my workouts.  It’s hard to drag my tired body out and get it running. When I’m feeling sluggish, it takes several minutes for my legs to find their pace and for my breathing to find its rhythm, but once everything is working together, my energy picks up and the world is gone for the rest of my run. I am unconcerned with what is to be done. Rather, I am focused on the brief escape I have from my responsibilities. And when I am finished, there is a sense of accomplishment and a renewed energy to face the rest of the day. So the sanity I gain from squeezing in a workout actually enables me to tackle all that awaits me rather than keeping me from completing my “to do” list. Give yourself a 20-30 minute break from life and get out and move. I promise that you won’t regret it!
