I've been running more lately. Not every day. But a lot of days. And, even though I am reluctant to put on my running shoes some mornings, once I put them on and am out there running, I like it. I feel like a locomotive. The Queen song, 'Don't Stop Me Now' comes to mind. So I've decided running can be therapeutic. However, I run alone. I think I might be able to jog with a buddy, but running is different. I try to keep an even keel, solid pace, but I think my speed varies quite a bit depending on the distance I've traveled and how close I am to the end. So, I think anyone running with me would probably get pretty frustrated. Jogging on the other hand really isn't exercise, but a social event, and maybe it gets your heart rate up a little bit. Jogging is for old people, people with bad knees, or people who are morbidly obese, or guys who want to have an excuse to go somewhere with good-looking women. I know I used to do that. All freshman year in college.
At any rate, I recommend running to most people. And, if you have bad knees or a bad back go on the eliptical machine at the gym, or go swimming.
