Move It

There's a really cool (even, dare I say it, inspirational?) video making the rounds by Dr. Mike Evans:

(If embedding isn't working for you, here's the link 23 1/2 Hours.)
I like it because it's really well done, and (as Rvan would say) they "did some science on it".

And here's the anecdotal evidence to support the fact that being inactive will kill you:

On Monday I managed to tweak my upper back while sitting in my chair at work doing nothing, and that was while I was still recovering from the weekend when I hurt my shoulder while rolling over in bed.

As Jon says, you have to expect some health problems as you get older, but really? At 43?

I liked how they said that "a dog is a good walking coach". We never walk our dog. He either plays out in the yard by himself (or with the puppy next door) or goes to Doggie Daytrippers. My dog is detrimental to my health.

I do find it amazing how sore I get some days without really, you know, DOING anything.

Yeah, my dogs really aren't great walking coaches either. I mean, I drag them around town every day, but I actually get a much better workout when I go walking at work because I can go faster and walk longer.

But, as my brother commented, maybe if I didn't keep adopting dogs with three feet in the grave...
