Running, weight-based exercise and ping-pong

I began my Monday about 6:30 a.m. on an indoor track at Emory University.  It was a “speed work” routine:   running hard then alternately walking.   With the endorphins flowing, weight machines were next,  followed by a group exercise class aimed at improving most of the body’s muscles..   I finished my 2 hours at Emory with 3 doubles ping pong matches.    They were the most fun,  sort of a cool- down from the other activities.  The point of my story:  often when we first awaken, we don’t want to get out of bed.  Sleeping feels so good.  But if we can project our mind forward, we can remember how much better the rest of the day is going tobe if we just get up and do what the body needs to maintain and often improve.  It’s a life style that will pay dividends.  Try it!
