Ugh, stop twitching
jogging
life Posted 2009-03-29 22:28:56 by Jim Crawford
I've been going out jogging pretty much daily lately. It took less just a couple of weeks for it to surpass Dance Dance Revolution as my favorite form of exercise. I've been trying to suss out why, and though I haven't quite put my finger on it, I have enumerated the following virtues:
  • Exercise releases endorphins.
  • It's aerobic, so you asphyxiate, which is a natural high.
  • It's a repetitive motion, so you enter a meditative state.
  • You're constantly passing by new scenery -- I've been jogging in different places at different times of day to enhance this.
The odd thing is, I would expect DDR to provide all these pleasures plus the additional pleasures of playing a game. Perhaps the downtime of selecting a new song is enough of a negative to tip the balance.

But what about all the burning lungs?!

Those go away after the first couple days. The burning, not the lungs.
