After the recent discover of my new found “Passion” for jogging I decided to step it up to something a little more intense, cross country. Cross country for the uninitiated brings all the boring elements that is jogging and adds a few extras such as hills, snakes and rocks to trip over and hurt oneself.
I headed down to Botany National Park, if not familiar with Botany Bay its where Captain Cook first anchored in what is now named Australia.
Fortunately the snakes feared me and slithered away, the rocks did not trip me and I managed to get up the hills. I have included a few snapshots of the park while pausing during my run to hyperventilate.
Since isolation started I have had to give up two of my favourite things, travel and pubs.
Instead I’ve had to resort to a new boring chore to get me out of the house, it’s called jogging. Not only is jogging boring, uninteresting, bad for the knees and pointless as I own a car. It also drains people of their sense of humour, personality and drives them slowly insane.
Fortunately it has opened up a new social group for me, geese. No social distancing required, a captive jovial audience and I get to control the entire conversation… which turns out is mostly about jogging…
Thanks to diet and exercise, but mostly the bar being shut, I’ve lost 7kg in a month and you can do it too. My dietary tips include
Breakfast – Don’t eat Lunch – Don’t eat Snacks – Don’t eat Alcohol – Don’t drink Dinner – A few boiled eggs, sugar free drink and blue cheese Exercise – Run every day Activities – play the banjo, write a blog
