I ran a 91.8 fitness test yesterday. Still got something.
I’d like to be in better shape, but I genuinely hate most forms of exercise. Running is bullshit, weight lifting is not so bad but not high on my list, and fuck pushups forever. Yoga is about the only style of exercise I don’t hate. Basically anything that leaves me feeling weak or out of breath after I do it makes me angry and I avoid it.
Is there some sort of secret ritual you have to perform to gain access to things like the runner’s high? I know there’s supposed to be endorphins associated with working out, but I’m pretty sure I’ve never felt them.
Congrats, that’s an awesome score!
I get an endorphin high sometimes (At least I think that’s what it is? It feels very up and cleansing and good.) at the end of my longer cardio workouts, around the 50/60 minute mark. Long runs or a long time on the bike usually feels super awesome when I’m done! I used to despise running, but I actually sort of find it stress relieving now, especially after really tense days at work. And I am no pro-runner, trust me. I think I’m still at like a 10 minute mile at best over sort of hilly terrain, but just going out and doing it feels really good, for some reason.
Man, I am on the same page with push-ups, though.
