I have a new friend who said to me yesterday, "Flexibility is the key to a comfortable & happy life". This has left me inspired. Especially during a week when workouts seem to be getting derailed either because of a locked gym, a pesky blister, or oversleeping.
Flexibility really is the key to attaining our 3day goals. With a commitment like this we walk that fine line of structure in training & flexibility when things don't go along with the plan. What makes a 3day walker different, "weird", is that ability to be flexible...to not get bogged down by what life is throwing our way & to keep a commitment to ourselves to juggle...well...life. We always keep our eye on the finish line. We know that a missed workout doesn't mean we're a failure it means we're learning to balance all that comes with training. We know that changing up a workout because of a closed gym means we avoid routine. We know that having our feet up for a day because of a blister teaches us how to listen to our bodies & plan ahead to avoid it the next time. There are so many lessons I've learned as I'm half way through training & today it's "flexibility is the key to a comfortable & happy life".

Very nice.... we all put too much pressure on ourselves so this is a nice reminder that small rewards are better than overworking our bodies. My feet have been up today! :DReplyDelete
