I really mean to post every day, but stuff happens, I get busy, or plain forget. Yesterday instead of the normal exercise routine I played basketball with a bunch of guys from my church. Its play basketball with them occasionally and its great exercise. Today I ran 5 miles following my normal route. The weather was so good I couldn't have asked for better conditions.
Playing church ball is quite the experience. We are far from professional and tend to get fairly aggressive--to the point where the game is closer to a fame of tackle football. I'm not vertically gifted, so when playing basketball I compensate by hustling to beat the others to the other side of the court and by playing scrappy and aggressive on defense. So I usually end up running for a solid hour or more when we get together and I leave exhausted and drenched in sweat. It feels great--I'm a real "natural high" type of guy if you haven't noticed.
What I was proud of today
There is a delicate balance between cutting calories and exercising aggressively. If you do too much of either you'll run yourself into the ground. I think I've struck a good balance between the two lately. That said, I've probably been a little low on the calories as I haven't felt quite as energetic as I could have.
What I wasn't proud of today
I actually can't think of anything at the moment...
