In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

    I like your running music list @aladdin , Watermat was really good, something new for me :)

    I'm not a performer and don't keep track of my performances, but yes, I love jogging/running.

    I run about 3 times a week, usually for 1, 1.30 hours preferably early morning when everything wakes up.

    I hate both running on treadmill and on a running track, going round and round even though running track materials are kinder than asphalt or concrete streets to your body. I'm a city runner because I live in a city, but take me along any coastal area, and I'll love it even better. In this case my running moment will end up with a swim in the surf. :D

    I had a look at your performance chart @aladdin. I think we could run together at time, you might be just slighly faster than me on a 4km distance. ;)

    @aladdin, @zakaria_dandouni1, @Hayden, @Oleg, @makeFin, @LorenaZuleta, @ManLearner, @BasmaHasan, @MortezaThaghiloo, @Joe, @Ruy, anyone,

    When you go jogging/running, do you have your music in your ears?

    Thanks @aladdin for the last videos I guess I've just passed from being amateur to amateur ++ , I mean my running for was off, and for the link of your records oh wow it's a good idea it gives you motivation to keep the exercise weekly .
    Thanks for sharing.

    @meu hhh yes because those two @aladdin and @Zom are already professionals not like us .
    step by step, dancing, walking, jogging, running and euh euh ...what's next ?
  • zakaria_dandouni1zakaria_dandouni1 Posts: 530 ✭✭✭✭
    @Zom do you have a running/not jogging partner ?

    yes I do love listenning to music while jogging, but it makes my head goes dizzy after 1 hour,

    @Zom are you out of breath after 1,30 hour ? because I am hehe, I know, but it hasn't been long when I started this exercise, I have to try to catch up to you two .

    Next...sleeping :p

    no no next jumping, like this:
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 3,075 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I would have to be on the moon to jump like this, here, on Earth, my bum likes too much gravity to take off. No need to say I also suck at rockclimbing.

    @zakaria_dandouni1, I don't run with the music on, I prefer to be in sync with the buzz of the city. And no, I'm not out of breath after running, I just feel great to kick start the day. When I go running in evening, it's different. it's generally because I'm wound up or excited, so it leaves me relaxed, and yes, then, as @meu said next is sleeping, but I'll probably get a cookie first.

    If you pop in Paris, no problem to go running together, but will you keep pace? Never mind, I'll wait for you at the closest ice cream parlour.

    I am too lazy and too fit to do that. :D At the end, I love doing dance alone in room, all doors closed and yes, no cameras. :D

    I agree with you @Zom in that when someone try to pass you I think it's became a marathon :D the winner in the marathon who will have the long breath
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 3,075 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Too fit @meu? then it's time to join us. The best moment a couple of hours after a running is to indulge oneself. What's your treat?

    LOL True @aladdin. The funnier is that next time you go running you wonder if you'll come across the same guy to get another chance or let them have another chance.

    Today at 7:30 I'll try to challenge the last activity I have. You can watch it live I think. B)
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 3,075 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @aladdin There is no entry for August 11 in your chart. Did you swap running for playing video games that day?

    As far as I am concerned, I don’t walk, jog or run. But I enrolled a sports hall 3 years ago.
    I go there twice a week, sometimes three times a week.

    Here is a video of it, a bad one, but it’s the only one I’ve found:


    I don’t like doing sport alone on machines, I prefer being in collective courses for several reasons :

    1- When I am alone , as soon as I sweat, I can’t stop thinking “oh my God it’s too hard, oh my God it’s too hard, …” . And then I stop.
    2- Whereas in collective courses, even if I start to sweat, I notice that the others around me, are just like me. They find it difficult but they continue. And I think “if everybody can do it, I can also do it” !
    3- I need a coach who bawls me out, who yells at me. It motivates me. Well … I’m weird, I know.

    And I generally join theses following courses :
    - FAC for Fessiers Abdo Cuisses (gluteal muscles, abs, thighs)
    - body attack
    - body pump
    - RPM

    @Christelle you are a masochist! But you must be very strong and fit. :smile:

    Sadly my internet is so slow @aladdin, I can't play any media. Apparently for a few weeks after the earthquakes, my friends say it was very good. But since then it is worse than ever (which was never great).
  • christellechristelle Posts: 984 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Masochist @mheredge ?
    This word just makes me think about "50 shades of Grey" ... what's the link with sport ? Lol
  • christellechristelle Posts: 984 ✭✭✭✭✭
    What about you @bubbli @makeFin @ManLearner @rumeysakrk @Alantika ?

    What do you prefer : walking, jogging or running ?

    By the way, @mheredge , I don't know anything about the universe of masochism... never experiment it yet.

    Could someone enlighten me ? What is masochism in sport ?
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @christelle I believe in the morning walk. It really awakes your creative faculties and keeps you fit and healthy. :)
  • makeFinmakeFin Posts: 157 Inactive
    if I am forced to choose @Christelle so it will be jogging... but my thing is cycling :)
  • aladdinaladdin Radio Producer LEOnetworkPosts: 1,745 mod
    @mheredge earthquakes! God bless you. I hope you are fine
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,640 ✭✭✭✭
    Masochists like inflicting harm on themselves @christelle. So if I regularly go to the gym and push myself until my muscles hurt, I could be described as a masochist!

    So far so good @aladdin. It seems I managed to sleep through the two little aftershocks that have been felt in the past few days. That's the way I Iike it!
