Fitness Vows

September 16th, 2007 at 11:21 pm

Dear Self,

Get off your butt and start jogging again. Remember how diligent you were at exercising while in graduate school? Somehow, you managed to climb out of bed at 5:45 every morning to go run 5-6 miles every day. What's going on now???

You have a stable job that is, for the most part, regular hours and no overtime.
You have considerably LESS stress than you did in graduate school; no more feelings of guilt, no more overbearing PI, no more pressure to get perfect results, no more guilt trip/ threats from assorted professors out for my thesis blood.
You live in a much safer neighborhood, with sidewalks, heck, even a nearby park and trails to run on. So why not RUN??!!

Maybe you need to go to sleep earlier instead of messing around on the compooter. Yeah, that would help =)

Do your best, don't give up, and remember that it takes a couple of weeks before running becomes "habit." Go for it!

Love,
Your brain

    And you'll feel more energetic, get better sleep, and be less stressed ... go for it, squared!

    If you run, so will I. I went from zero to a half marathon this year, then promptly took a week off. That week was in May. I haven't started again and now I've lost all that hard work.

    On another note...SOP's? I work for a biotech and we are just ruled by data and SOP's. Just commiserating. Smile
