BRISK WALKING


This morning, I had my scheduled brisk walk. I actually brisk walk on my every day-off. Today, however, Vincent accompanied me! It is Sunday here in the Philippines and his class starts late today so he can join me in my brisk walk. We used to brisk walk from Rizal Park to PICC. It was fun, you know! I can not catch up with him. Brisk walking does not give him the satisfaction he expects from physical activities such as this one. He prefer to jog and even during those days when I still can run, I can not catch up with him. Sometimes he deliberately slows down so I can keep up with him. Not fair, right? I told him it is fine, just leave me behind but he would teasingly reply “ ooo…poor little bear, cant catch up, don’t worry, I wont leave the little poor little one behind!! He really wont leave me behind no matter how I persuade him to. As soon as we reach PICC, we play the sparring game. It is like a hand to hand combat game that I thought him. I used to do Tae Kwon Do during younger years, you know! He will punch me and I will block his attack, them I will punch back and he should block my punches as well. The trick is we have to do it faster and faster. Who ever got the first hit is the loser. So, upon reaching PICC, we would spar. When I got really tired and all sweating . I just want to sit down. We would go the side of the Starbucks restaurant, sitting in from of the sea and just sit there and talk and talk. He would talk about his class mate, school, sometimes girls, or I would tell him about some out of nowhere suitor or just the people in plain sight or just tease me that I can not catch up with him and can not defeat him in our sparring. If we got hungry we will jump in to the nearest restaurant.



Anyways, he joined me in my brisk walk today but we had some time pressure because he have to attend the 6:00am mass. As soon as we reach our house, I told him..”Say, would you like a minute of a re-match! I will get the first hit this time!! He just smiled and we began. One minute turned to five minutes!! He was laughing so hard.. As usual, I lost..hmm..again!! Anyways, it is good brisk walking with my son, Vincent. I am actually waiting for my him as I write this entry because I told him we will have breakfast together. I will prepare some nice juice for him.



How is your morning, my dear reader? Hope your day will be great today..start with a smile..ok?? Till my entry tomorrow then!!

I used to do a "Walk at Home" exercise, but sometimes, natatamad ako..It helps a lot if you move and burn some calories. It helps with losing weight. And it feels good too after you sweat.
