No Excuses

After a nice and easy 50 min. recovery run this morning (out the door at 5:45am) I just wanted to point-out how manageable and important it is to get in the miles. I was back in the house, coffee already made, my body feeling GREAT, my Friday work-out done, a little travel on the itinerary, ready to go! On a weekend, I could have gotten in another 2 hours and been home by 8:30am. Here's the rub: it's not whether or not someone wants to have to resort to such a schedule; it's that one can not afford not to. Most of us know (and may even take for granted) how essential exercise is to the system. The alternative is a slow acceptance of the inevitable decline that can't wait to participate in one's retirement.

Give the brain a break. Get the blood flowing.
Everyone will appreciate the work.
