Every BS should go running if they can!

Absolutely NO exercise has helped me like running. It clears my head and brightens my whole day no matter what kind of mood I wake up in. The sense of accomplishment is amazing too - I started at a couple miles (I am a former runner) and ran 4 today - and seeing my time improve is fun too. I just crank Pink and Kelly Clarkson and go, it is truly something I think every BS should at least try if they are physically able. It isn't for everyone but you never know until you try! :)

That should be BS!!!! LOL. Maybe WS's too - I wish mine would. :)

Reading the thread title I thought you were on the hunt for every ws and they should run from you

PrincessPeach06 posted 8/10/2013 08:22 AM

LOL! Sorry about that - I always think "wounded spouse" for some reason and can't get that out of my head. I tried to change the title but can't. :)

I corrected it for you

Thank you!

I used to run daily. I loved it. I hurt my foot and now the Dr. says no more running
I miss it so much and walking just doesn't give me the same payoff. I do advise running for anyone as long as you a physically capable.

I ran at my best during those awful post Dday times.... 12-15 miles... usually crying but then I thought people would probably think it was due to the exertion and not because I was a BS

Running stopped me killing people!!

For those who can't run, I walk fast about 4-5 miles a day at work (20 hours week) and about 1 mile each day additionally outdoors. It absolutely is great. Outdoors lets the brain stuff loose into the sky and there's a million distractions. You can walk any pace that gets your blood moving.

I used to run track my whole younger life, and hiked 7-12 miles on a weekend and then still run after getting home. It is true, if you can run, it is very, very, very good. The endorphins to the brain and body are wonderful.

I do miss it, but the muscles, and ligaments just won't take it at all anymore. Thank God for walking. A major stress buster.

Oh my gosh! I agree!

I just did a couch to 5k plan and ran my first 5k. I have signed up for a few more as well this fall. My goal is a half next spring.

I feel so great and people tell me I look great too!

I too was a runner and nothing works better at clearing your head. Of course getting or keeping in shape is a side benefit.

I can no longer run and I miss it. If posiible run or walk. If not try some yoga!

I ran so hard after Dday I got a stress fracture in my foot! And I did it without eating. I kicked my H's ass up our favorite tough mountain hike--I told him I had "righteous zeal". I had so much energy to burn, and being 7 pounds lighter helped.

Slowed done after taking a break to heal the foot and gaining 5 of the pounds back (damn happiness!), but we are getting ready to do our first triathlon of the season tomorrow, so we shall see!

Exercise diffidently helps me.. A minimum of 60 minutes a day.

Ariabook posted 8/11/2013 00:16 AM

Thinking too much - That sounds like an awesome idea!!

I wish I could benefit from running, but I'm always on the verge of being underweight - dying to exercise but I don't want to look unhealthy!

gonnabe2016 posted 8/11/2013 01:45 AM

For people that don't have *running* on their brain (like me)....the title of your post has a whole different meaning...

(infidelity, BS, run..... ya get my drift? It made ME laugh this morning...even if no one else noticed it....)

I've never enjoyed running very much. I've tried...LAWD KNOWS I'VE TRIED!

But I do love kickboxing.

If you can't run, try a kickboxing class.

In the past 4 weeks, I've kickedboxed the shizz out of my husband's infidelity and his multiple OW.

myperfectlife posted 8/11/2013 10:01 AM

I used to run quite a bit, but I found that sometimes it made me think TOO much about things I didn't want to think about.
Right now I know I am not eating enough to run the way I need to.
Instead, I get on the recumbant bike at the gym and read a good book that has NOTHING to do with infidelity. This way I can get my mind off things and truly escape and get exercise as well.
I am just at a point where this does not overwhelm my every waking moment.
Running is great, walking is great...but sometimes it's just too much to have all that thinking time!

Put me in the kick boxing category 2. Also zumba for those abs. Love to run, but I've gotta watch my knees.

Tripletrouble posted 8/11/2013 11:28 AM

I was actually in the final weeks of training for a tri when d day happened. In spite of being unable to eat, sleep, or complete a coherent thought, I continued to train. It saved me. Running still does. And biking. But swimming... That's just you and your thoughts and the bottom of pool. I find that difficult sometimes.

TheRealDeal posted 8/11/2013 12:13 PM

Ran first 5K after DD3 - felt exhausted and awesome all at the same time!

I've run since then along with speed-walking or muscle conditioning nightly, yoga x3 week, strength training classes and am currently searching for local kickboxing classes. perhaps I'll get in touch with my angry side during kickboxing!

Just yesterday I discovered access to a paved bike path that is relatively close to home and I'll be putting my rollerblades to use again too.

due to all my activity and inability to eat much I've lost 25+lbs since June.

feeling good about myself physically. now if only the rest of me could catch up! to say I'm a changed person is certainly an understatement
