100 Days of Focusing on Health: Day 20 (body)
The wonderful thing about kickboxing class is you don't have a lot of time to think about which way to kick. You kick. You don't ponder the theology of your right hook - you jab, you punch. I spend a lot of time in the world of ideas as a minister, writer and general nerd. It is a natural and comfortable place to be in my mind and pondering.
My intention with exercise is to inhabit my body, and to inhabit the the right now. I want to know the intensity of pushing my body to the limit. I want to feel the grace of a well-executed kick and the strength and confidence that comes with it.
