    It's a good kind of soreness, though. I actually enjoy it.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Yes, I know. It is good, but if you're not prepared for it, it can be a bit of a surprise.

    Good for you!

    Word of advice, although running can give you such a rush of adrenaline and get those endorphins going it cal also wreck your shins, knees and possibly your feet. Listen to your body and if it says everything is ok then good. If your shins splint don't get better within a week stop running. Ok just my opinion as I wouldn't want to hear that you're limping around in pain!

    FYI- The Elliptical offers a great workout without damaging any body parts.

    I was diagnoses with flat feet at the age of 13 when I first developed shin splints and knee problems *sigh* I have runners especially designed for people with my problem.

    THANKS for the concern.

    This week I have slowed the cardio down to a fat burn level and have been doing pilates, and yoga and a power train class. It's been great.

    Bit of martial arts - not high level or anything, just a bit of wing chun and tai chi now and then; hiking (very long distances, quite often over very challenging terrain). I used to swim a lot, but I can't do that any more for um, physical reasons. I love to go sailing, which is actually quite a bit of a physical workout on a proper sailboat without engine assistance.

    I purchased a knockoff of those "Total Gym" home workout machines (knockoff link here, only available online) and I've been using an 18-step program designed especially for those kinds of machines-

    Dan Isaacson's Body Makover (Total Gym)

    It works pretty well for me since it works out all the major muscle groups. I feel physically 'balanced' the day after I've done the exercise. I also admire the compactness and efficiency of the machine, it uses your own body weight as the weight load.

    I went to the gym yesterday and ran on the treadmill for about half of the time I was on the treadmill. Then tried the elliptical and recumbent bike. 1hr 20mins of cardio
