One of my friends recently tried to get myself and others into the running craze. She’s a single of those really health-conscious people that admittedly has a really great figure as a result of her extensive exercise & a carefully-planned diet. I do not consider myself to be certainly out of shape, but I believe compared to her, I am not in the best of shape. She was not being mean about it or anything, although she insisted that there was a better myself and others waiting on the other side of a nice bit of exercise & a change of diet. It happened to be around New Year’s, so I figured I might as well fit another resolution in & start getting health conscious. One of the things that my acquaintance swore by was getting up in the afternoon to jog. The complication with that was that it was December & most sane people spend their afternoons enjoying their oil oil furnaces inside! Every one of us live close enough to each other, so she promised that she would be out there with myself and others every afternoon for support, jogging right at my side. I gave it a go, but I hastily found that it was just not for me. It was strenuous enough leaving the warmth & comfort of my own oil furnace & home to get up to go to toil in the afternoon, however to get up even earlier to squeeze in some jogging time was really rough. It was below freezing on the first afternoon, And stepping out of the warmth of my home & out into my front yard was strenuous enough, never mind going to meet her down the road.The whole time that I was jogging out there I was longing for the comfort of my oil furnace & home, & but I was giving it all I got, I didn’t even end up warming up from the exertion!
