What is it about running that has me so disinterested in any other exercise? I am shocked that I have a one track mind when it comes to exercise these days. And I am dismayed because I really know that I need to do more than just run in order to stay fit. I just don't seem to be able to snap out of this single-mindedness.
For one thing the weather is warmer and the days are longer so I have gotten out of the habit of taking my gym clothes with me and going to the gym before I head home. It's not just the weather or the daylight though. I am not interested. And I am angry at myself for losing that momentum. I am resolute about only running 3 days a week because I do not want to get injured and I know how much stress running puts on my body. And I know that my job has me sitting still all day which is incredibly unhealthy. So why oh why do I seem to be talking myself out of going to the gym. My previous arrangement always worked for me. What is going on in this head of mine?
I feel like I am going through a mid-exercise crisis.
