Just curious if any of you get any physical excercise daily. I have been starting to feel out of shape, since summer has rolled around and I'm getting paticularly lazy, but have felt like this for aboout 8 months and finally decided to do something about it. I have started getting up at 5:30 am (an hour earlier than usual) and going for walks/runs. I'm terribly out of shape, so I am only doing about half a mile right now. I about half run, half walk until my body gets into better shape than I will gradually lengthen the running until that's what my morning excercise consists of. It was gorgeous out this morning. I live 30 mile out of town, 2.5 miles off the highway, so it smelled fantastic, not like... people. I brought along my itty-bitty radio thingy (about 1 x 2 inches) and had my headphones and listened to my country music the whole while! I also started doing sit-ups, push-ups, and crunches. No paticular number, just however many I can do that morning. I think I'll get some 5 or 8 lb weights and start lifting a little bit. Also, if you guys jog/run/walk, what do you wear? I'm frugal... cheap... okay STINGY! So I just cut a pair of old sweats into shorts and put a t-shirt on. I bought a pair of running shoes at Wal-Mart for $20.00 and with my music and this beautiful air, being able to walk down the road with NOBODY in sight but the horses, cattle, antelope, birds and rabbits, watching the sunrise. Wow. It was unbelievable phenomenal this morning.
