This is my jogging course. It is beautiful now with the rice planting season.

I told you that I often go Satoyama Nordic walking and Satoyama cycling. Now I go Satoyama jogging.

I started incorporating jogging into my morning routine because of Dr. Peter Attia. Dr. Peter Attia is a doctor specializing in longevity, and he recently published a book called Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity. He recommends zone 2 training.

Yes, Nordic walking is more zone 1 training, although some parts can be zone 2 as it is uphill. I now go jogging once a week and Nordic walking twice a week.



Talking about Dr. Peter Attia, in a recent interview with Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, he said something interesting. He doesn’t like the trend in biohacking, especially what is happening around the Silicon Valley area, where people are trying to extend their lifespans. Peter Attia thinks the idea of living to 150 is far-fetched. And most people are not even interested in extending their lifespans; what they want is to extend their healthspans.

I am happy to hear this because this is what I have been expressing so many times. I wrote about it in the first chapter of my book Ikigai Bio-Hacking: Bio-Hacking Based on Japanese Natural Health.

I thought that the entire longevity community was moving in that direction to extend their lifespans, so it was a relief to hear someone as influential as Dr. Peter Attia speak rather against it.
