I ran into CB at the first Tuttle home football game. He noted he had not seen me in a while which meant he had not seen me at the Burris home gym. All I could say was it was hard. He understood the variety of reasons it was hard. I confess to mixed feelings about being at the first home game knowing Lyle would not be sitting with us. I can say he would have been pleasantly surprised at the "coming out" party for Sterling Koons. He had a solid game at quarterback.
This morning I got up thinking about CB’s reminder of the need to get back to working out. I went to the hotel work out room (no not weight room, not a weight in sight). Two treadmills, two stationary bicycles and one of these – an eliptical corss-trainer. I thought I would give it a go. WOW! When I run at home on the treadmill, I usually run for about thirty minutes and log a mile and a half our so (includes warm up and cool down). After the first ten minutes I was left wondering if I would make it the thirty minutes I plugged into the display. Thirty minutes and more than 2 miles later and I felt like I had been tortured.
I needed the workout. I needed to think through some things to work out in my head. Exercise is good for the body and the soul.
Hopefully my legs will recover by early morning basketball on Friday …
