A Rocky Moment

Do you ever have moments when you feel on top of the world?

Invincible, strong, powerful and quite frankly, like a bloody legend.

That's what I call, a Rocky Moment.

In such moments I envisage myself on top of stairs jumping up and down with fists in the air, complete with the Rocky theme playing in my mind (...getting strong now).

A Rocky Moment can strike me anywhere, anytime. It is unpredictable, so I never know when it's going to hit.

Well this morning - I had one.

I'd just finished running 6km (3.73mi) in less than 50 minutes whilst still remaining within my 'fat burning' heart rate zone. It was a PB (personal best) that had endorphins intoxicating my body. I let out a little whimper "yes", but I really wanted to shout from the roof top - a - la Rocky.

I'm finding that these Rocky Moments are energising. They have me wanting to go back in the rink time and time again. Perhaps that's what makes a world champion. Who knows?

Until tomorrow, have a fabulous weekend full of Rocky Moments.

  1. Excellent! I haven't seen that clip since I saw it at the movies at least 30 years ago! It is actually really inspiring, isn't it? The music is so uplifting- you can't help but feel you are "getting stronger". I've been reading your blog for weks, and think you have a wonderful way of expresssing your thoughts and feelings as well as such a great commitment to the routine of blogging daily.Keep it up- I would miss you if you weren't there!

  2. Thank you so much Linda - I really appreciate you taking the time to write... and am equally grateful for your words of encouragement. Gx

  3. out of the mouths of babes- Kids have been reading/ watching your last 5 blogs with me tonight and so naturally it led to a 'Grace' conversation... "how is she?" "Grace looks really good!" "What's her husbands name again?" "Grace lives in a different house doesn't she. That's cos she's an author and an artist." That's kids for you- they say it as it is... artist, author... and an inspiration I would add! We love you grace xx
