Ask ol’ Sisyphus here. He had an eternity of practice.
And practice is the key element.
Perhaps we should view exercise as Sisyphean–endlessly laborious and futile.
But that’s ok, right?
There is a certain futility associated with exercise, as it relates to the aging process…..very much like rolling a boulder uphill.
Becoming complacent/lazy/distracted/etc., is when we let the boulder roll down the hill.
We just need to be certain to start moving the boulder back up the hill.
The aging process will make the endeavor more labor intensive, which will then make us want to cease trying…..and many of us do.
Pity for them, as it is a needless waste of life that might have been preserved with some regular exercise.
So quit acting like a sissy, and more like a Sisyphus.
