Territories: Knowing One’s True Boundaries
As I try to begin a new fitness regime, I think, one of the most important components of the plan is consistency.
It is easy to fall back into the dreams of my eighteen-year-old self… I am unbeatable… I am impervious to pain… I am unable to be injured or hurt.
It did seem to be the truth at eighteen.
It is definitely not a truth at sixty.
The impetuous of my fitness plan it to start at a fun level that will show improvement and then to consistently improve in small- very small- sometimes, seeming miniscule- increments.
I have completed my first 5K.
I have my next one in fourteen days.
My next one is a 5K walk… NOT a run!
I only want to better my own personal times.
It is important to know where to draw the line.
Written for The Daily Post: Territory. I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My topics for the month of March are as follows: (Monday) Teaching and Life; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.
