OK, thanks... I don't know that I even get those, so not much to be addicted to there. :ugeek:

also I experienced a tendency that jogging and its effects actually undermined meditative practices. Possibly due to the bodily effects on mental processes. Mental meditative capacity tended to decrease with increasing jogging activity. So one may have to find one's middle way in this area too, the welcomed psycho-physiological effects however may counter this midddle way which may be interpreted as "addiction". :sage:

I was totally addicted to the "high" from running and still experience "cravings" and "withdrawals."

You could spice up the run and develop neglected muscles with some light parkour basics.

The correct and least impactful way to run is by striking the ground with the ball of the foot, rather than the heel. This minimizes impact on the knee, and instead transfers that force to the calf muscle, which acts much like a spring.

However, it takes a while to switch over to this style of running. Barefoot or lightly shod and no more than 5 minutes a session in the beginning, and gradually increase the time. Your calves and other stabilizer muscles need time to recover from years of atrophy.

I think I did it in just under an hour, although I haven't seen the times yet.

Well done!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
