Cardio in the rain
Good for the soul – therapeutic, cleansing, metaphorical
I made a pact with myself this week that I was going 120+% all in, no matter what. Focus, focus, focus. In part, to help with my head game. In part, to stay on track with me in the equation during some challenging and stressful days.
So up at 5:30 a.m. and outside for cardio in the steady rain before my training session I went. And, just like the lawns and plants in Minnesota — this was a much needed drenching.
My walk was refreshing (wet), therapeutic (I was the only soul out in the downpour) and cleansing (clear the mechanism). And, it was exactly what I needed on this Monday morning as I ponder life and try to keep my footing by staying grounded in gratitude.
It turns out, I found beauty — real beauty — in unlikely places.
