Dr. jeff

GNP.

My doctor gave me a prescription. He said i need to take it for the rest of my life. He said, “You need to lead an active and well-balanced life if you want to remain healthy.” That doctor is me.

Dear Future me

Windermere Runners Club summer 2016
Windermere Runners Club summer 2016, doing 100-meter repeats with the teenagers. No regrets. This photo captures us jogging back to starting line to “repeat” another 100-meter sprint (at about 70% effort).

 

Dear Future me,

Don’t wait until you are “old and fragile” to remember what your 93-year old Grammy (in-law) said, “Health is wealth.”

I should have focused on my health, but…

I could have focused on my health, but…

I would have focused on my health, but…

Dear Son

Dear younger me

Father and son
Yesterday, leaving school after Cross Country practice. He’s 16, i’m 57. He’s the master of the poker face.

 

Dear younger me,

You will be tempted by the devil to put off getting into good and decent physical condition. You will over come this, eventually, but it will take decades. In fact, you won’t become fully committed until you turn 40.

The devil will get pissed and then go all out to tempt you to believe you’re good to go. Meaning, now that you’re in decent shape, you can start to miss a few days here and there. Don’t fall for it. Too many missed days become an insidious habit that eventually sends you to the place you were before you started.

PS. By staying committed for a lifetime, you will be able to help your unborn child between his 15th and 16th birthdays to start his physical wellness journey by running with him – you will be 56 when this commences.

Besides Diet & Exercise

Perception outweighs reality

Roadside marker for roadside death
Yesterday morning, a spontaneous photo – a metaphor on so many levels.

 

The High School Math teacher asked how i stay so fit. The French teacher said, “I see you running everyday.”

Truth be told, i run Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

To stay fit (since 1999) i run, walk, go to the gym, stretch, sleep decently, and make (mostly) good food choices for quality and quantity, and i find a million ways to stay motivated.

The last one, i forgot to mention to them.

My Advice On Going From Zero To 60 In 2 Days?

It's not like the Olympics are this weekend.

Been following a close relative’s renewed desire to lose weight and start exercising. She asked for advice. Seems after day 2 of her exercise routine she got chills and other not so good side effects (flu-like symptoms).

My advice, slow down, way down. You should not do 30+ minutes on the treadmill plus 20+ minutes on a bike in you first week. What’s the rush? I hope when this posts in 90 days that there’s good news.
