Healthy Jogging?

On my way to play tennis this morning There was a female jogger coming towards me.  As she approached me I saw she was smoking a cigarette Undecided  Unbelievable Smiley

Re: Healthy Jogging?

You are correct Strat - in our area there is a large fitness centre with a McDonalds a few yards away.
As for jogging and smoking - whatever 'floats her boat' so to speak. I find the demonisation of smokers a big irksome even though
I am now a non-smoker myself.
Don't think much of jogging as you end up with lungfuls of carbon monoxide from the traffic fumes (which is just as bad as smoking I should imagine)
and dodgy joints as they continually take a pounding on the hard surface. When they are needing hip and knee joints in later years they'll wonder why.
She's be better off going for a nice walk with or without a dog IMO.

Re: Healthy Jogging?

You're right Poppy.  10 years ago hip and knee ops were rare in people under say 65.  My hip surgeon now tells me he is operating on younger people and it's all down to exercise.  Makes you wonder doesn't it Undecided

Re: Healthy Jogging?

I've always thought that the best way to keep fit is to hang the car keys up and leave them there! After all, how often do you see an obese post person?
The young lass across the road from me is up at the gym at every verse end - how does she get there? In the car of course. She could walk it in ten minutes.
Must be thousands like her. Doesn't make sense, specially when you think of the cost of these places.  Huh

Re: Healthy Jogging?

Jim, you could be right, especially in light of Poppy's earlier post about injuries to hips and knees Wink
Poppy, I know what you mean.  If you go into the cafe bar at my club you'll find lots of people eating cake etc after exercise and drinking their lattes.  At least I try to be good and drink Americano Wink

Re: Healthy Jogging?

In my younger days, I always looked forward to Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
A group of around 7 of us , all after a day at work (one of us was actually a GP), would spend an hour or so pumping iron after a warmup run across the fields outside.
After the workout, we all joined up again at the bar and enjoyed one, maybe two pints of the amber liquid.
That was a wonderful evening out with friends  and the healthy part of it was the getting together and relaxing.
Never did any of us any harm and we all are still around and enjoying our retirement.

Re: Healthy Jogging?

Well, back in my squash and badminton playing days, after a hard match I was always famished, mind you I always made a point of eating very frugally before a match. Didn't really care a lot what it was as long as it was edible.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Opposite one of our local fitness centres, a Kentucky Fried Chicken, and yes you see people go from the former to the later...........

Reminds me of a tweet of mine from a couple of months back when I spotted something very similar. Undecided
