FITNESS FOR WRITERS

My back hurts and my muse thrust a dagger between my shoulder blades. My brain is amped with mighty muscle, but if I don’t attend to the rest of my body, my brain will become a deflated basketball. 

I’m not a fitness enthusiast but I wish I were. My husband works out in this gym 3 times a week. I took a week off work to focus on writing, so I took the time and finally went with him to the gym.

I hopped onto the treadmill and read my Kindle. Thirty minutes sped by.

I wanted to read more so I walked another 30 minutes! We finished the session by relaxing in the pool.

Because I have arthritis and fibromyalgia, I expected to be sore the next day. I wasn’t! I do walk every day, so my legs were probably used to the exercise. 

But here’s the best part: the treadmill loosened up the creative debris lodged in my skull. I got a lot of writing done.

What has worked for you? I wish I could jog or do more with my body. I bet that a writer who is also a jogger could really shake up his muse. 

Keep writing and keep sharing! Cronin Detzz
