A Tuesday reflection.... a close friend of mine has had a sudden colon cancer diagnosis, undergone quick surgery (successful) and now faces 6 months of chemo. He's 45.... he's a great guy, huge heart but in pretty poor condition and with less than stellar eating habits. I have been in his ear for years (big surprise) about prioritising exercise, losing weight, eating better etc etc... As he recovers I will be trying to nudge him towards healthier habits but of course it's in his hands... My reflection is actually how grateful I am to feel as good as I do. I mentioned to Crofty this morning that after 50 years on this rock it is only after the last 2+ years under the CF "spell" that I am starting to really feel connected to my body. Forget the minor mechanical grievances as they are a fact of life for the youngest to the oldest athletes and are to be managed within the boundaries of our rigorous program. I mean I am starting to get a grip on the whole process: nutrition, recovery, mobility, mental state etc etc (Note I said "starting").... and as a result feel energised, positive and more in love with life than ever before. Every little bit of progress rewards us - but it's the overall result that inspires me - and makes me want to try and influence my great, great friend towards changing his habits and direction. Ask yourself right now if you know anyone who really needs to sort some life s@#t out and challenge yourself to expose them to what we know... sorry if this sounds a little evangelistic or preachy.. it's merely meant to be passionate... a glimpse of mortality is a sobering thing and I have worked one thing out looking at my 50 y/old mates... this is WORTH it!!!
