I JUST CANNOT BELIEVE TODAY! Some days everything just seems to come together and obviously today must have been that DAY!!!! I rose early and set off for "Yoga". This is normally such a struggle, but today-well I don't even have an explanation! I was able to do EVERY pose-BETTER and LONGER than anyone else in the class. I was blowing all of the young, slinky, agile Coeds away. I even did the head stand and back bend. I was able to stand on my head and slowly pull my hands up-so I was on my head-balanced with no support. I started the normal feet in the air, instead of the back bend and found myself able to drop them to the floor and push myself up into a back bend. Instead of dropping to the floor to come out of it-I was able to slowly unbend and straighten back up. WOW!
Things went so well in Yoga that I decided to go to the weight room. I went through 4 sets of 15 on "EACH AND EVERY MACHINE". Still full of energy and pep, I then worked my abs for 30 minutes. It seemed that with each and every rep I was strengthened and energized!
This had gone so well and I was still feeling so well that I decided to go for a little short-slow run. When I finished my first mile and I was on a 10 minute pace and not even breathing hard. Just to see if I could, the next mile I picked up the pace and found at the end of that mile that I had run a 9 minute pace. UNBELIEVABLE! Since I was still feeling so great and just to see what the old body could do, I let it all out for the third mile- """"" 7 """" minute pace. Who in the world would have ever imagined that I could run a 7 minute mile? The next 2 miles, I slowed my pace back to the 9 minutes to get my heart rate back to normal. The final exercise episode for the day was a 5 mile walk-at a twelve minute per mile pace.
What a day-------WHAT A DAY, INDEED-----Wow-what a day-April Fool's Day!
