Every morning, now at 5:30, I go out for a 4 mile jog. Why? No one penetrates my space, I am free of distractions and I'm free to let my mind wander. Besides, I need the exercise! It usually takes about one mile and then I find my rhythm. I forget about what I'm doing and I can think clearly. Some people think jogging is boring, but it's relaxing to me. It's so peaceful. I generally run on gravel country roads. The paved streets are hard on my joints. I feel connected to nature out there. Once I get my rhythm I can then think about my running. Relaxing the shoulders, lengthing the stride, increasing the pace. What makes you feel refreshed?
