How many people here run, cycle, lift weights, or swim? I cycle now and run a bit, I used to run more. I have run a half marathon and cycled one hundred miles. I live 25 miles from Stanford University in Palo Alto California and I rode there today it was cool. I lift weights 2-3 times a week and swim ocasionally to get all the kinks out. Does anyone find physical activity as addictive as mental activity? Two totally different feelings but they help each other a lot in my opinion. I couldn't exercise without mental ability, and vise versa to a degree. What are your thoughts on their connection. I wouldn't want to live without either, but if I had to chose I would rather be able to exercise than to study. What do you guys think about that assesment? It's kinda like choosing between being blind or deaf, well not really but what I'm trying to say is that both are so vital in people's lifes, that's why its a difficult question, let me know what you think about it. peace.
