Today, I am thankful for tired muscles.
The good news. S and I climbed long and hard at the rock gym on Saturday and Sunday. Not bad for two boomers. Today, I am tired and a little stiff. Makes sense to take a break from strenuous exercise. I'm not completely off the hook - still have to stretch and work my abs.
The bad news. I don't get to climb and already miss the workout and our friends at the gym.
I'll be back on Wednesday, however, ready to master another section of the traverse and try a more difficult bouldering problem or sport climb.
Yes, my worst day of climbing always beats my best day at work.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
