Crumb #46: Sitting is the new running. One foot in front of the other is the new workout.


You know how 30 is the new 40 is the new 50?  How Thursday is the new Friday, and gray is the new black (Not orange, but that’s another story)?  Well sitting is the new running.

I challenge myself to exercise everyday. I have done 65 Bikram yoga classes in 65 days. I’ve alternated swimming, walking, running, Gyrotonic, and yoga for 30 days straight.  During a more recent 30 days, I did whatever I deemed to be exercise, and couldn’t make the 30 days.  I feel that my body is begining to take longer to recover.  Now I plan to exercise 7 days a week, but I’m satisfied with 6.  I know that at least by day 15, I will have to take a break.

I also know that there will come a day when exercising everyday; when swimming a mile or doing yoga in a hot room for an hour and a half will be too much to expect of myself. Putting one foot in front of the other will be the best I can do.  Sitting down will be my new workout.
