I write about my life and life itself seen through my eyes for who can write through the experiences of others if not their own?

I'm In love...temporarily

I can’t believe I am saying this so soon. It started in the last two weeks since I decided to go the gym at lunch time to cross train instead of running due to a small discomfort that could turn into an injury.

I walked in there and there it was…it was love at first sight. An elliptical I have never done before.

I have always disliked cross-training, especially if I am injured. It feels like a punishment imposed on me. Well, this time I look forward to it every day. I get to read my book and I feel I get a great workout and at the same time I am healing.
And in my long work days, I am rewarding myself with an ice coffee after work...that kind of seals the day.

Of course I am not giving up my passion for running, after all running or the feeling of it like a good wine has gotten better over the years. Not that I’d know if wine gets better over time, it never lasts that long in my keep.
