|It’s been too long since we took the time …|
It’s scary how quickly fitness can disappear. After 30 minutes in the home gym doing a routine that I would have considered “light” just a few weeks ago, I’m literally trembling from the effort. But in a way that’s good. Those twitchy muscles are waking up from a long nap. They’ll come back; they have before.
Every autumn as the days get shorter I find myself spending more time in the home gym. This year I have the added incentive of a fitness contest sponsored by my employer. The contest began today and runs through Nov. 4. I’m not sure whether there are any prizes to be won, but the competition itself will provide a little extra motivation for me to keep hitting the weights and to look for other cross-training exercises.
