Exercise and meditation
« on: March 16, 2019, 01:27:14 PM »
I've been a distance runner and cyclist for almost 30 years.  Over that time, I've developed the ability to ignore the aches and pains of exercise.  I wonder whether that ability has reduced my ability to feel sensations during meditation... has it developed a filter on sensations?  I'm very intune with other aspects of my body, but those are the ones that I respond to, whereas I've spent a lot of time ignoring the sweat on my face, irritation of my shorts, etc.
