At last the lashing of Tropical Storm Mina is over. It has left the country yesterday. Thank God she has left no greater damage… only landslide and flooding in some areas in the country. In our city, it has done nothing big. Only heavy rains in the afternoon until evening. I hope this month would be sunny. Oh.. how I missed my biking spree. I wish to do my rounds this month on a daily basis. Let me check the the weather bureau .
Having a hard time gasping for breath after climbing a set of stairs ? Not being able to walk a block away from your work? No energy to lift medium weight grocery bags to your car? Well you might as well think of losing weight , have a regular exercise or check your heart’s health.
Being an exercise buff and an avid reader gives me a lot of knowledge about proper exercise habits, commitment to do it at the right time and at the right place. Spending two hours on the road for my mountain biking is not that quite easy . I almost fainted during my first trek to the mountain. I just got to a hundred meters from the starting point and I noticed that I couldn’t breath and was grasping for air . The world seemed to go around and I stopped facing a wide area towards where the air is blowing, so I can recuperate . My head is telling me that I could do it but my body could not.
After that not- so- good experience in biking, I read and read books and magazines about the proper way to engage in mountain biking exercise.And I also found out that one way to know that you have a healthy heart is the time it could recuperate and beat normally after a strenuous exercise. Medical experts say that a healthy heart beats normally one to two minutes after engaging an exercise. So what’s your score? Are you grasping your breath or you remain calm after climbing those few steps?
Check your heart and take care good care of it. It’s the only one you’ve got.
It’s been raining here in our city for almost a week. This morning was a sunny one so I was excited to go home by two in the afternoon to for biking exercise. I took a nap to gain more strength for a two hour round from our place to the mountain part of the adjacent barangay. When I woke up, it was already raining… Thanks to my rower.. I was still able to sweat out some calories.
