Jogging At Yunnan Garden
In a previous post on exercising, I mentioned what my sister said about how some favorite quick songs can help enhance the jogging experience. I wanted to try her theory out.
I had my chance on Wednesday.
First, I compiled a couple of my favorite songs into a jogging playlist onto my mobile phone.
Second, I picked a place to jog in. There are many places to jog in NTU. I see a lot of avid joggers jogging along the road. But I didn’t really like running too close to the road with cars zipping past me. I decided on Yunnan Garden. It is a nice garden with lots of greenery and away from cars and car fumes.
I started walking with a slow song before moving on to a fast-tempo song. The quick tempo does make me run faster. I like the song so the time past fairly quickly. That’s good for me because I tend to count the time when I am exercising.
I also realized I can keep track of how long I have been exercising by the number of songs I have heard because I know how long each song is.
It is really quite a good and enjoyable way to exercise. I’m going to do this again on Thursday.
