I’m not much of a runner. I’m still traumatised of coming last in every race I ran in school. Much to my dismay. This put me off sports for a long time. I’ve just listened to a TED Talk that makes a good case for ditching your running shoes. The case he makes is that running barefoot eliminates running injuries and brings the joy and freedom back to running. He makes an interesting proposal – I might just take up running, barefoot.
Check out the talk below.
Full of ‘I don’ wanna’ and ‘I wanna stay home‘ I dragged my feet through the revolving door of the gym. Classes are scaled down for the festive season so there was nothing interesting to do. Only boring treadmill and please don’t even mention the bicycle.
So the rowing machine it was and what a great workout I had. I felt great afterwards and this morning even greater which for me means more energy and flexibility. I rowed for 10 minutes, rested for 1, stretched for 2, then started again, this time faster.
I’ll stick to the rowing machine again today and probably until all the classes start up again. It’s a short workout which means that I will do it every day.
I’m looking forward to it today. There’s none of the ‘I don’ wanna’ and ‘I wanna stay home‘, so let’s go!
