Never Stop Exercising

Filed in Self-Management on March 18, 2021

I took the photos (above) on different days. Rain and shine.

Did you know that jogging can reduce your risk of heart disease by up to 45% ? Yes. That is correct, 45%! A 15-year study was published in 2014 by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. They had over 50,000 participants.

Some days I just feel like being a couch potato.

Or about as motivated as my cat.

Then I muster some energy and go for it.

I’m really grateful for the local parks! I’ve jogged in different parts of the world, all with different climates.

Alaska is simply bitter cold. Iceland is dry and extremely windy. Colder days require layering up. Wearing multiple layers of thin clothing is better than 1 large jacket. The hot climates are easy– wear less. Heat should be allowed to escape, otherwise it creates a greater risk of heat exhaustion.

If you are interested in your long-term health, diet is very important too. Being consistent over the years is the hardest part of running. I’ve been jogging for over 36 years, (I did however just start bl-ogging.)
