"I want to get in shape, but running bores me!" commented an IM buddy. I thought about that for a moment, and wondered why I don't get bored. I couldn't find the answer, but I decided to pay attention the next time I went for a run.
I now know that I do not get bored, because gasping for breath and feeling like throwing up are, by and unto themselves, fairly engrossing activities. So my advice to those who postpone getting an aerobic workout due to boredom is this: run harder. Or better yet, run harder immediately following a large meal.
