Another fitness first


In all middle-age men fitness journeys are personal records, amazing accomplishments, awesome workouts and other “never to be repeated” best efforts. We all have our stories and memories for a lifetime of these golden moments that will always be ours to cherish. They bring out the “what it’s all about” of fitness and health, the why we do it, and are sensationalized with the middle-age man athlete imaginery medals and trophies we give ourselves that sit on the mantel in our mind’s eye.

In the wee early hours of yesterday morning, when 99.9% of those in my neighborhood were sleeping and all was calm, this middle-age man was in his basement at 4:15 a.m. squeezing in a quick 15 minute workout before going to work, something I’ve never done before at the time of the day and, for me, another fitness first.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

My question is did it make you less grouchy?

Charles, a set of 54 burpees at 4:25 a.m. will tame many a grouchy middle-age man is it did for me.

Thanks for asking.
