I don’t know how running really started. Out of impulse, I downloaded Nike Running app on my Lenovo A7000+. I am always walking long distances that I wanted to keep track of it. I have this habit of keeping track of any statistics such as:
number of books read
hours of silence spent
anime episodes watched
basketball shots made.
The latest fascination? Distance walked.
But when I tapped “Coach”, I discovered that I can choose what race distance I want to train running. So I created a new goal with modest goal of 5K. I first tried and I got 35:17 minutes which is the average time. I am now training for 3 weeks and it’s my rest day today.
I am running not because I am health conscious; I am running to test myself. The only benefit that I want to get from it is the stamina for basketball so I can run on the transition. Not even trying to join any race.
Maybe this fascination will fade in the future but thanks to this app I can keep track of my walking.
For some reason, waking up for me is pleasurable for the past two days. This is strange since I usually don’t wake up during my phone’s alarm. And whenever I wake up, I feel unwell. It’s either I still wanted to extend my sleep or I feel like having a fever. And the reason? If there comes the time when I will find waking up at 5:30am in the morning, that would be a good reason to feel well in the waking up. But so far, waking up during these two days are the reasons for me to smile. Is it because of a cool temperature or an uninterrupted sleep? I think that would be a yes for both. So later this night, as I lay down on my bed, I will let go of anything that burdens me be it anger, heartache, unfinished work, or whatever. As my Brother said, let tomorrow worry about itself. Let go.
I had an eye operation last May 6 due to a juvenile cataract. Now, I’m still recovering even though it has been two months already. These past week my right eye is still itchy and reddish at times. Thank God I anticipated this by telling the ophthalmologist to give me a dropper in case my eye irritates or hurts. Doc gave me a dropper with a bonus effect which I really like: antihistamine. Sometimes, I use the med just to cure my allergic rhinitis in the morning. Sometimes, I regret having this operation since I see no significant difference in my right eye sight (aside from lowering astigmatism whatever that means) but at least I have no problems looking to a foggy eye vision. Tomorrow, I’ll visit again the clinic and I hope doc will give me a go signal for my prescription eyeglasses. Through that, I can now anticipate faces from a distance so they won’t say I’m snobbish. I’m just a guy with poor vision.
