I just started How to Think About Exercise by Damon Young. If you truly know me you may be laughing right now! I have told my family I will think about it and not do it.
However, that is not what the book is about.
Here is a summary:
A look at how and why exercise affects the way we think and feel
It can often seem like existence is split in two: body and mind, flesh and spirit, moving and thinking. In the office or at study we are 'mind workers', with superfluous bodies. In the gym we stretch, run and lift, but our minds are idle. Damon Young challenges this idea, revealing how fitness can develop our bodies and minds, together. Exploring exercises and sports with the help of ancient and modern philosophy, he uncovers the pleasures, virtues and big ideas of fitness. By exercising intelligently, we are committing to wholeness: enjoying and enhancing our full humanity.

Here is hoping this book may actually get me to start exercising!
Also if anyone is interested, I was sent two copies so I have an extra. Would anyone like it? It is an Advanced Reader Copy so there may be typos and such. In order to get it in case more than one person wants it, just leave a comment with your favorite form of exercise. I will take comments until the 31st at Midnight.
