Do you exercise a lot?
Have you been at it for years?
Are you the type that rides around the neighborhood to make a 98-mile ride into a century?
Do you get squeamish if you can’t exercise for 24 hours?
Are you curious about that beautiful machine in your chest? You know, the rhythmic coordinated pump that squeezes 100,000 times daily–and never gets a pause.
You have read here, and elsewhere, that exercise is vital for wellness. But could exercise have an upper limit: a point in which the rhythmic pump says enough to the unremitting inflammation and stress.
If you care about this topic, read this New Yorker piece from Dr. Lisa Rosenbaum. The title and link are as follows:
Dr Rosenbaum does an incredible job of putting together a complex topic, one that challenges our intuitions and attachments. Plus, she is both a beautiful writer and nice person.
Thanks Lisa. That was something.
