We touched on my fitness level a bit here so it wasn't a complete surprise when I had my blood work done for the first time in six years (apparently you should have this done every year..?) and it turns out I have high cholesterol.
Doctor: You need to exercise every day.
Me: Interesting. Shouldn't I take a pill or something?
Doctor: No. Just the exercise.
Me: Right. Does walking count?
Doctor: No, you need to get your heart rate up.
Ok, gotcha. Message received. And I choose life. So I've started a humiliating regimen that I call sprinking. That is me sprinting until I can't breathe (about 50 feet) and then walking until I can breathe again (about 300 yards). And repeat.
This is going down every morning now so if anyone wants to join me stop by before 10. Unless it is raining or snowing. Or really cold. Or hot. Or something good is on the Today show. Kidding about the last one I don't even watch that.
