The road less travelled

As I walked up the steps of the gym this morning I was rudely reminded of my ' mickey mouse' workout yesterday. My quads felt tight and my hammies cramped a little, but it felt great. It served to remind me that a) I'm still alive and b) I'm able to exercise...well sort of.

Did 5 min walk on the T-mill and 15 mins of mild intervals on the stationary bike. Then some core work with the swiss ball and I was done.

I'm glad I have a record of this because I need to look back later this year and remember this as a starting point. Unless we record where we are, how will we know how far we've come.

Have eaten well today and even after a couple days of this I feel more organised and focussed. Funny how an exercise program tends to order things in your mind.

South Africa is playing Australia in a cricket test match in Johannesburg right now. Wonder if Adam is watching. Good luck mate.

I so admire your tenacity and strength. You don't/won't let life get you down. You are a testament to your faith and strength. It reminds me of that chinese(?) proverb... get knocked down 10 times? Get back up 11. or something to that effect (I always fudge quotes). I can't think of enough words to describe you. Awe inspiring... amazing. Keep up the good work!! =D
