Now that my Olympics are over (the US Olympic Speed Skating Trials). I celebrated the achievement and journey. I took some time off to rest and reflect.
What now? I woke up a few days ago with an itch to move. I am built to move, and I heard the call.
My need to move is similar to my need to eat. Intuitive eating is eating when I am hungry. I have no lofty goals right now but I still need to feed myself and move.
So my goals are simple now. I will pay attention to what my body and mind tell me. When I feel the need to move and push, I will listen and obey. This wisdom comes from within.
Each week, one skate, one weight workout, one cardio bike workout, then some recovery work like swimming, tennis (indoor for now) and golf when the weather is better. All this is fun to me. No outside goals or pressure for achievement. If I feel like pushing hard, I will, just for the enjoyment. It feeds my deep down need to move and be active.
Then, I pay attention to the next lesson.
Today the Conners and Bergers get together to celebrate the engagement of my daughter Jamie Conner to Jamison Berger. Their wedding is planned for March 2015. We will also recognize Jamie and my son Brad’s birthdays.
Next month I will transition back to the 747-400 flying out of Chicago again.
I have a lot to look forward to.
