Slight Workout

Came back from work around 6:00 pm and I wanted to do something different, I was hungry but I felt like moving a little. I thought of going to the gym but instead I decided to go for a jog in Mishref, seeing all the people walking when I’m coming back from work, I thought to myself if they can do it then I can.

I started off in the middle section and turned right, it was around 47 C which did feel as bad as I thought. Then I started a light jog, and picked up the pace. I came to realization that this is a lot harder then it looks, and I am in horrible shape. I was laughing at myself and panting, running out of breath, I had nothing to eat all day, and I was thirsty as hell. This was a crazy idea, but I thought to stick it out.

Some stats off the top of my head:

  • Covered about 3.4 Km (The markings on the ground are great)
  • 20% Ran, 15% Jog, and 65% Walk. A lot of people were passing me and I thought this is embarrassing, and continued on my path while running out of breath between intervals
  • Took about 38 minutes, thank god for the water fountains to drink from they are a life saver

It felt good after I was done, but I needed a cold shower but the cold water ran out very quickly. I’m really out of shape and I need to get back in shape, and I’m a lot heavier then I remember.

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!
