The Truth about Exercising

I used to be a pretty serious runner. I used to go running 12 miles a day, 6 days a week. My legs would start to ache at the end of the day if I didn’t go running. I even ran a marathon once and scored a time I’m pretty proud of.

So I know what people are talking about when they say things like “running just makes me feel so energized.” But those days for me are long gone.

When I go running now, I don’t feel energized. I feel like laying on the couch and doing nothing for the next 3 hours.

I know what people are talking about when they say “running just makes me feel good.”

These days, though, running just makes me feel like vomiting.

So how about you? Are you over the hill yet?

  2. If you use the excuse of being old to lie to yourself and say you don't need to exercise anymore, then no, you're not old. But otherwise, yes, dude, you're ancient. The beard adds at least ten years.

  3. I have found that I used to run or hike almost daily and now… well, not so much. I wonder where my motivaiton went and why it changed. Good job running in the Thanksgiving race, though! 🙂
