When the sun shines and the rain rains: Zen

Posted: April 28, 2010 in Uncategorized

Yesterday I got a quick run in before swinging some Kettlebells around.  I’ve decided that running is a great warm-up for Kettlebells.  Nothing too crazy, yesterday I did 3 miles, half of it in the sunshine, half of it in the pouring rain.  By the time i got home i was drenched (maybe sweat? maybe rain?) and I was in the perfect state-of-mind to push it hard with the Kettlebells (maybe that was the music… Black Eyed Peas: Rock That Body and Imma Be.)  I had a great workout!

Details to follow, but let me just say this:  State of Mind is Everything!  If you’ve cleared a small piece of your day for exercise…  honor that.  Focus on your exercise and not what you need to do after your exercise window.  The way I see it is, clearing your calendar for an hour or two for a good workout is a challenge in and of itself.  So honor that and be present and be committed.  There is a saying in Yoga about “Honoring your time on the mat”.   This is so true for many things in life, isn’t it?
