I wonder why...

...when it was getting time to leave work for the day, and I was feeling a little under the weather, feeling like maybe I should have gotten out a little early to go rest up from an oncoming cough...

...my body insisted that walking outside was incredibly invigorating, and exactly what I needed.

I walked from Alewife to Davis on the bike path, then from Davis home via the bank (deposit! yay!) and Your Move Games (still no Transhuman Space sourcebooks! boo!)... and it was great. I didn't feel very cold, it wasn't frozen or even slushy enough to be annoying (except for one or two places), and I even got to help a lost person find the Fresh Pond Shopping Center. I listened to the Moody Blues Live at Red Rocks album the whole way, since random chance had my iPod toss "Overture" on as I was passing the train station... It was incredible!

And then I got home and was feeling pretty good for a while, played some game, paid some bills, socialized in the living room some... ...and now I'm feeling worse than I did when I left work.

Hmm. I thought the body was supposed to know what it needed.
