Warning: Long incoherent post, it's just a self reminder to my current state of mind.
It just occured to me, that perhaps it's not only due to the heat and my over perspiration, but rathe me getting out of shape, and rationalizing it with tomatos and how they can help you out. What happened to the days I could run 10 Kms on army shoes with a full vest and M-16 while chanting stupid songs?
I had a week off of aikido due to vision laser-correction surgery (now I can roll AND see what's up) and I realized that I should start rebuilding my stamina somehow. But I don't want to go to the gym again, I hate it.
And I don't want to run along the beach, it's not me.
I considered swimming in our pool (since it's small, i thought i'd tie myself with a rope to something stationary and swim without moving), but for now i'm just doing general excercises in my room and play hackysack as much as i can.
I know it's not the best form of excercise, but it's the one i'm most likely going to stick to, and I hate being exhausted in aikido classes, damnit.
