15 minutes of bliss...

Now, this is a PG rated blog so those that are overly sensual are not going get what you think you are....

Work has been difficult lately, being out of action with a false case of chicken pox, and other summer activities I haven't been exercising (or eating) the way I really want to.  Some activities make up for it, like surfing for 2 and half hours until my arms and legs are raw and nearly bleeding from rubbing against the board, but not fully.

This morning I woke up early, stretched (which hurts now that I'm over 40), did some ab and back exercises, and then went for a run.  I put my shuffle on under my shirt, started up a network security podcast, and began a slow jog through the early morning heat and humidity of southeastern VA. 


It just felt amazing.  Just 15 minutes, about a mile and a half.  I needed it.  I had been craving it for a while.  No aches or pains, just a slow comfortable jog sweating bullets early in the morning.  I won't say it is the best way to start the day...PG remember...but it certainly is a great way to start.

  1. Ha ha. You got me big time with that blog title. Tease!!

    Good for you for taking care of yourself!

  2. Taking care of yourself and your needs is bliss.

  3. SMS,
    I thought I might get you with it...T and a few others too.

    I've spent a good bit of time dealing with some similar issues that you and CH are dealing with, but not to the extent you have. I can't imagine really how you both feel and deal with things day to day. You and your family are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. The two of you have a love and a resolve that is incredible given the circumstances. I know that things will work out eventually. If I could make some of the things that have happened go away I certainly would.
