{October 19, 2009}   My body is a temple

Ugh.  I’m staring down the-project-that-I’m-trying-to-finish-and-can’t-finish-oh-dear-lord-when-will-this-be-done.  I’m also all “worked out” and showered and wondering the following:

You and I, Russ, we try to eat right, we try to stay active.  There are some folks who, while perhaps supporting and possibly even engaging in these pursuits, nonetheless take the stance that it’s embarrassing or unseemly to discuss them.  At the other extreme, well, we’ve all seen those Facebook posts.  (You know what I mean.)

So my questions for the day are as follows.  When is it OK, if ever, to discuss the things one does for physical fitness?  Running, bike-riding, (American-style) yoga and the like can plausibly be considered hobbies, but does that make them any less boring to talk about than the number of push-ups you can do?  Are all of these activities equally lame and self-indulgent topics of conversation?  If not, why not?
