I’m on my daily walk and my mind is wandering. I’m remembering Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s novel “Love in the Time of Cholera” in which “cholera” suggests both the actual plague that is ravaging the novel’s countryside setting as well as the violence of the civil war. The main character also suffers from a kind of love sickness as he longs for his Fermina. I’m loving my walk and my thoughts; so what in the world does this have to do with exercise? In a lot of ways we can draw parallels.  

“These are extraordinary, unprecedented times.” We hear this everyday – on the news, TV, radio, from our smart speaker. So let’s go with that and stop trying to make everything like it was “before.” Life will never be the same. However there remain many constants in our lives and one of them is the need to exercise.
