Once again, I’m amazed at how quickly the body can improve. Even though I only “run” two seasons of the year: yesterday was my first time out for this season, and the interval running was SO easy! I’m glad that I decided to only do one day of each of the first three weeks of that particular interval schedule, all in the one week. Next week I switch out of that Rookie Running schedule, to a 5-week run training. Last week I did high-intensity intervals just with walking–man, that’s harder than running!
Now that there is cross-country skiing to do in the winter, I’m only lacking some good exercise to do in the summer. Maybe swimming? That seems like it takes up so much time, what with having to change, dry up, etc., but we’ll see.
Meanwhile, lots of action happening, though slowly, for our business. Next week we have to get our trailer out because of it. SO wonderful to see this Spring weather, to be able to look out at my beautiful brick yard (now totally revealed with the snow gone), and dream about all my “babies” (trees) coming to life. It certainly makes me less willing to actually go on holiday this summer… I want to stay at my beautiful (still new) home! :P
Going to end off with some unrelated scripture, but Good Stuff nonetheless!
“And don’t say anything you don’t mean. This counsel is embedded deep in our traditions. You only make things worse when you lay down a smoke screen of pious talk, saying, ‘I’ll pray for you,’ and never doing it, or saying, ‘God be with you,’ and not meaning it. You don’t make your words true by embellishing them with religious lace. In making your speech sound more religious, it becomes less true. Just say ‘yes’ and ‘no.’ When you manipulate words to get your own way, you go wrong.” (Matthew 5:33-37)
