I’m 80% back to my exercise routine and intensity, after one week post-Panama. I consciously decided to take a break from working out for the two weeks I was there. The sun comes up at about 6:30am, and by 7:30am it’s too hot to exercise, even at a fast walk. My friend Sally, a daily runner, gets up at 5:30am to stay on her exercise schedule. But not me. I love watching the sunrise, and sipping coffee on the patio, and having Gloria make breakfast. I love the slow start to the day.
But at my age, taking two weeks off means a fair amount of effort to get back on track, and it doesn’t happen within the first week. I should be back to 100% by the end of the coming week — two weeks off, two weeks to get back. I can live with that.
