When your breaths are too rhythmic and the legs are burning with a fire-like sensation that is peak time for your jog or simply a run. Today I would like to talk about the very basic and most difficult of the jobs we humans know - Jogging.
I started jogging in the middle of 2013. Although I still am a learner in the field of cardio but would like to share my experience. We all hear different versions of different athletes about cardio but in my opinion, instead of trusting blindly the said or heard things everyone should try to discover their own style. That's the first definitive and best step you can take towards this exercise. I don't believe in this fact that it's an activity that can be fun. I consider it as a way of discipline( so, therefore, no fun ) and endurance in life. Although I don't want to impose my views over my reader's but still would like to emphasise again that even though it sounds strange, still, jogging is one of the best ways to control your desires and life in a broader sense. When you take that first step on a track you feel the sense of purpose coming in you. The purpose of completing something. The purpose of giving something back to your own body. Respecting it. Suddenly you are focused towards whatever is in your mind. All the world's tensions or responsibilities melt into nothingness and it makes you think better and more clearly. Sometimes there is so much clarity that you start feeling the touch of the wind on your face and in your hair. The touch of the earth below your feet pushing you forward with the friction created by your feet. Basically, you start feeling alive and more driven towards the basic human need to be with nature. Out of the materialistic world which we have created in our own concrete jungles. After those twenty to forty minutes, you feel the rush of endorphins getting released in your body and giving you that high of a lifetime. Each and every muscle responding to your brain's command. Your ears hearing more and more acutely. The vision in eyes becomes clearer. I still remember an incident while I was at peak of my jogging schedule. There were some kids playing volleyball next to the track I was running on. One of them hit the ball a little too hard and it came roaring at me like a giant bullet aiming for my face. Thanks to my heightened senses I stopped it in mid-air and returned it to them. Their careless behaviour didn't even make me angry cause I was so engrossed in my thoughts and focused on solving my problems that I didn't think twice about that incident until now which means it also contributes towards peace of my mind. So as I was saying that getting this feeling of being in control of things and enduring the pain or as I call it PRASAD of jogging is what you should live for. Apart from all these great feelings jogging also helps in keeping your heart and lungs healthy by increasing the work done by them. The work done makes them stronger and better in their performance. Most of the marathon runners have a resting heart rate below 60 and lower incidences of cardiac problems. It basically improves cardiovascular stability in your body. It also reduces the risk of diabetes mellitus and various other diseases. It also keeps you younger looking and fitter than a person of the same age group but not involved in the exercise. So basically jogging not only improves mental health but also keeps physical health in check. In the nutshell jogging is not just an exercise for me but an abstract thing which is a part of my body. It's as necessary as breathing and as easy as sleeping for me.
PS - What are your thoughts about it ?? Please don't be shy to leave them in comments. Comments from athletes about techniques of exercising are also welcome.
Bone chilling cold crept up from my legs into my torso. My teeth started chattering when I suddenly realised that the temperature had gone far below zero degree celsius. I switched on the ignition of my car and turned on the heater to full blast before my legs became numb. This is how I was welcomed to Shimla in the state of Himachal Pradesh, India, in the month of January. Luckily, my car started immediately against my strong belief that it would not in such a cold weather, as, that was the first time I had driven my Volkswagon Polo to a hill station in winters. I woke my college mate up who had coiled like a viper on the conductor seat of our car under the common blanket we had been sharing for past four hours. Being taller and heavier between us, my legs had to bear the wrath of winters as most of the time they had not been covered. At that moment I cursed myself for making such a rash decision of travelling to Shimla in evening. The reason for not doing that in the first place wa…
The inspiration to write this particular piece came from one of my friends. After completing Attention Attention !! 2.0 I have been encouraged by her to write about two particular problems (in detail) which exist due to the chaos created by the social media and technology nowadays. Here, I would like to express my thoughts about one of those points. Before I do so I would like to say, that, I do not consider myself as an expert on commenting about trends but these are few of my observations in daily life about - Misuse of Technology and Trolling. I would like to start expressing myself by explaining, what freedom of speech means in the real sense. It just means that you have a basic birthright to say whatever you want without censorship or penalties. Yeah ! Literally, it means that. We as netizens have this blog or other blogs because of this right. Today we can express ourselves in any way we want. We can call names to the leader of our country or we can freely comment on other pers…
I did not know where to start my first blog from. So I decided that I would go with my own profession. In this blog, I would like to discuss the intricacies of being a doctor. Our day starts normally, same as people of other professions. But as each second passes away it keeps on becoming serious and complicated. I still remember the first and second day of my internship. The first day because of the sense of purpose it gave to my life and hard work for the last four and a half years. Second day because of how worried I was for a total stranger. I am talking about the follow-up of the patients admitted on my first day as a clinician. Since then it has become a habit to worry about the health of others. So I was telling you that we wake up with the same woes of not wanting to overwork and wishing for some more hours of sleep. But as the time passes by we start thinking about others - The Patients under us. Be it someone who can't be saved or someone who was admitted just for a mino…
