People ask me all the time how I “feel” after working out.

Family, friends, co-workers, etc.  People that I am in contact with are constantly asking me if I have extra energy and vitality from exercising, but the answer is “NO”.

Especially from running.

Running is not natural.  Although humans have the ability to run, no human being in a million years has run 70 miles a week until the last 100 years of history.

Until the late 1800’s, all running was mostly sporadic sprinting.

Cave men didn’t go for a jog.  They ran to save their life, fight or to kill a dinosaur.

And I don’t think too many soldiers went jogging during the civil war.

Unless something crazy was going on, basically you walked slow and long.

Weight lifting and dieting are different.  I 100% feel better when I weight lift and diet correctly.

I have a ton of energy, I sleep well and my strength and stamina is through the roof.

Running makes me feel horrible.

Right now I am peaking for my running season and I feel absolutely horrible.

My anxiety is high, I am constantly irritable and I don’t sleep well.

Does this sound like torture?

I believe it does.

After September 29th my season is over.

Then back to dieting and heavy powerlifting.

Cant wait.
