I went jogging last night
No too far, about two miles, but I purposely picked a very hilly route. I do a kind of interval workout where I sprint up the hills and jog down them. I do most of my aerobic workouts on my nordic track cross country ski machine which is very low impact. Every so often I crave the fresh air so I suck it up and actually run. Then I pay the price for it the next day. So today I feel very old. However, I am just a whipper snapper in cosmic clock of things on earth as it turns out. An Australian scientist sequenced the DNA of a type of giant sea grass found in the Mediterranean. Turns out some of those patches are 200,000 years old. By far the oldest living organism on the planet. Gee, I may have to run a marathon tonight.
