Tame the beast

Let this middle-age man cut to the chase and tell anyone who may wonder why he exercises the way he does.  Why does he do some of the workouts he does?  Why does he favor intensity?

Certainly at his middle-aged man chapter of life, he's not training for some athletic competition although some middle-aged men are still in that game.

All the evidence suggests that something simple like a daily brisk walk may be all that is necessary for general health and wellness.

So why does he prefer to strap a heart rate monitor around his chest and subject himself to short-duration and grueling workouts of the high-intensity flavor?

His answer is very simple.  Within him is this character that needs to be kept in check. 

This character is known by different names to different people but this middle-aged man knows his inner-character as the beast.

And this middle-aged man wants to tame the beast.  

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
