When I woke up this morning, I just couldn't push it. Normally, I am up and out of the bed by 5:15ish and ready to get my workout in to start my day. Here it is 6:15 and I’m staring at the ceiling!
For the past two days, my knees have been killing me. If you've been following for a while then you know that I have had patellar tendinitis and vestibular neuritis that have effect my mobility from time to time.
Anywho, it really had me down that I couldn't just push through. But then I heard a voice that reminded me that the race I am running toward health and wellness is a marathon not a sprint. Endurance and longevity are the goals. When you run a full marathon, no one expects you to run the entire 26 miles without a sip of water or a brief break to breathe. On life's journey we have to remember to apply the same thinking. We need the water breaks and stretch breaks, and breathers to make it through the marathon.
So today, I plan to break my normal walk down into smaller chunks but still get it done. I will still ride my bike but for a shorter time than I would normally. The goal is to be healthy and active, not to lift the gym and be in pain for the next two weeks and immobile.
Repeat after me: Life is a marathon, not a sprint!
