When: 3pm, under the sun and white cloud chariots
God I hate running. It’s so mindless to put one foot infront of the other, and it’s hard too! A short jog around my estate wipes me out.
But it’s hard to deny the benefits of running: losing weight; improved cardiovascular health; slowing down the aging process; and being happier and feeling less stressed. Although you won’t know it from looking at Homer’s mug below.
There’s truth in the benefits list. I do feel a lot “lighter" (not just literally) and I focus better...after a short nap.
Because I’m a sucker for pain, I find that running isn’t enough. So I’ve added two full-body and core exercises to supplement this cardio workout. Has anyone out there tried something like this?
- 1 set X Jumping jacks (40 X)
- 4 sets X Deadlifts to shoulder presses (12 X 12.5kg)
- 4 sets X Crunches with legs tucked in (15 X)
- Run (2.5km X 12.36 min)
