Three lessons Glacier taught me about physical health

Three lessons Glacier taught me about physical health:

  1. The best way to exercise is to walk outside. 
  2. The quality of your nutrition and rest shows up the next day on the trail. 
  3. Exercise never feels like exercise when you hike Glacier trails.

Tied for longest continuous run

Sanibel Island thunderstorm
We see what we want to see.

 

Yesterday morning’s run was 1.5 miles.

By my standards, barely worth it.

By my running partner’s standards, it tied for his longest continuous run ever.

The long way is the short cut.

We see what we want to see.

Insignificance or significance.

Every choice has the same opportunity, even the ones that are routine.

Why?

Because our routine defines us.

Changing it is literally impossible.

Only an indomitable will to change will bring about change.

Anything less will allow excuses to grow and fester, and eventually win.

When our excuses win, we lose.

Observe nature. Obesity is rarely an issue.

What could we possibly learn from this?

Stay active?

The lesson from yesterday’s post is awareness through focus and discipline

Know your healthy zone (weight, blood pressure, etc), and fight tooth and nail to stay in that range

 

The lesson from yesterday’s post is awareness through focus and discipline. A message easy to hate.

Two Major Lessons In Yesterday’s Lane 8 Blog Post

The real deal, not a replica. And earned, not acquired.

Two major lessons from yesterday’s Lane 8 blog post:

1. Amazing results happen to anyone who refuses to quit.
2. Trading my USA team jersey was difficult at first, because I had worked so hard to earn it. It was a defining moment in understanding the Olympic spirit and the beautiful appeal of The United States of America’s generosity.
