Finally Went Jogging

Oct 17, 2007

It has been about 3 weeks since I went jogging last, and I was hurting for some exercise.  It seems to me that during those stretches of time, when I get distracted or preoccupied and fail to get exercise, life gets more stressful.

I suspect that when I do not exercise, my body builds up negative something (hormones, stress, chi, something) and I can't get back on track until I burn some of that negative stuff out of my system.

So today, I got up late (on purpose and after working late last night).  I went for a 3-4 mile run, then walked one of the dogs for another mile after that.  I feel a lot better.  More centered, focused and balanced.  All those little things that were weighing down on me just 12 hours ago feel much lighter.

I notice that I tend to get off the exercise cycle whenever I travel.  Last month I went to the Podcast convention in California and that's when it broke down this time.  Next month, I'm going to Blogworld.  I am going to try and run every other day until Blogworld, and for the first time, I am going to try and run while I am in Vegas.

I have a friend that packs a bicycle on the plain to Vegas for trade shows and then rides into the mountains.  I do not think I am ready for that level of dedication, but this time when I take my running shoes I will use them!
