I hit the gym again!!! For the 2nd consecutive week during Mon lunch time!
My company has a membership plan with Planet Fitness and the staff frequent the nearest one at Great World City.
My "Gym-Fanatic" colleagues who seem to be "wanting to join some beauty-pageants", have been hitting the gym 3-4 times per week and they keep invitg me to join them.
I like sports esp. jogging!!!
But... I dislike jogging on a treadmill (like what I wrote on profile)
To me, it is like "going nowhere" on the same spot. I seriously do not like the idea of being "stationary".
Last week, despite listening to the upbeat in-house music, and scanning the various plasma screens, each showing different TV channels, I got BORED after jogging for 5 minutes.
After pressing the "STOP" button, I went to the lounge, took some magazines and returned to the treadmill. While flipping through the pages of magazines as I run along, I gradually felt better. I felt my time spent was then more fruitful.
Today, I chose the treadmill which comes with a mounted personal TV.
Plugging my ear phones into the sound system, I started surfing the different channels as I jogged.
In addition, I even positioned the treadmill mini-fan to blow gently towards my face.
Jogging is now a breeze... Haha!!!
After a 20-min jog, with a 5-min stretching before and after... I took a quick shower, grabbed some sushi from Ichiban Boshi at basement and shared a cab back to the office with my colleagues.
Back at work, I was ENERGETIC to continue the rest of my day.
So... Treadmill or Open-Air... Which is BETTER?
Here's a comparison...
Enjoy the cool air-con while sweating out
Maintain your fair skin tone (won't get tanned skin... for fair-skin lover)
Do some reading or watch news simultaneously
Somethg funny to add... After u come out from the treadmill, you will find yourself havg this "moving-forward" motion; liken being on a TRAVOLATOR!
The carefree feeling of being out in the open!
Admire the beautiful scenery; in touch w nature
I guess it is an individual preference thing.
You form your own verdict.
Well... if I must really choose one... I will go for "Open-Air"!
It is more "fuss-free" for me cos at least... I do not have to take a shower for 3 times...
Simply love SAT morning jog!I can hv a nice & relaxing jog (w/o havg to rush for work), enjoy my breakfast + papers before getting on with the rest of the activites on Sat.
Whichever way preferred, just contine to WORK OUT!!!
"Winners are those who never quit!"
Just yesterday, I played sport too...
- What are those pieces on the ground?
