A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to the Gym
I was heading out of the building to the gym when I realized it was a gorgeous day. Not too hot - and given the heat we've had around here lately, it was wonderfully cool. So instead of staying inside and working out in the gym, I dressed out and headed outside to walk in the sunshine and enjoy a not-too-hot Texas day. Was it the hardest workout I've ever had? Are my muscles still aquiver? No, they are not. But I got in some hill work, a bit of climbing through the tennis courts and through the neighborhoods and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I always opt for the exercise where I enjoy it! Yes, there will be days that I just have to "do it" - just gut it out, but today wasn't one of them. It was a great day and I got out there and enjoyed it. Soon it will be too hot to commune with nature and the gym will be my only option. But just for today, I took a little detour and I got the most enjoyment out of my exercise.
