On Saturday, me and my lovely wife went to the Botanical Gardens for a run, for me it was a must because i needed to train for the impending Penang Bridge International Marathon this 21st of November.
I ran for about 10 kilometres, then on Sunday, after church, i told my lovely wife that i needed to taper for a day or two, tired ma but she sounded eager to run again, no choice we headed to the same venue again, it was tough on Sunday but i really wanted challenge myself to go a little further than what i did the day before.
So, on Sunday i managed to run for 15 kilometres and i felt so good, i knew i was not well prepared for the Marathon yet but i must really train hard for it and for that i must do.
You know, a lot of us know for the fact that exercise is good if not compulsory to maintain our health and to boost of our entire well being, but how many of us really make it a point just to do that, hit the road, head to the gym, dip into the pool, climb that hill,dribble that ball, pump that iron or even skip that rope.
I remember many years ago, after the birth of Marvell, my lovely wife was in the worst of her health and i encouraged to join me for the run, she was so reluctant in the beginning but when she really gave it a try and she was hooked on running.
She makes no excuses of not having enough time, if she had to, she would wake up as early as 5.30 to go for a run,( inside our apartment compound) and a few months after joining me for run, her overall health got so much better.
You know i have heard, seen and read how people took control of their health by hitting the road, just to jog and eventually run... ailments gone, extra fat reduced , more self contentment,more postive and exude those nice feelings.
Note : do you still make excuses for not exercising?
P/S : Hit the road Jack,you will regret no more no more, hit the road Jane, you will cut that waist line some more some more.............................
