Track how you love to exercise and how you don’t. Exercise how you want to, not how you’re told to. If you don’t love running, it’s running’s loss you don’t do it, not yours. No one can tell you what you care most about it. And it’s no-one’s business if what you love changes over time. I spent years playing basketball. Now, not so much. That passion may return or it may not. The important factor is to remember who’s in charge – you. There are millions of sports and ways to move your body.
