Running – a cure for all?


Two decades ago life has being much simpler and less stressy than it is in today’s time. I guess each Generation feels the same way that “the old” time was simpler and more easy to brake away from daily sometimes boring and monotone cycle. Not only is our new time more instant but all seems today more polarized.

As the instant society ask for immediate solutions to problems that can’t produce lasting results in such a short time, we amass unsolved problems. Over time those have piled up over our head where now some smartasses who thought of macro acting on every single matter of life. This has created huge amount of highly polarized and not seldom aggressive behavior. Those polarizations have created a sort of unhealthy extremism – Stress factor One. Continue reading

A rotten Run


I went running for nearly 12 Km in Amman today. I feel good! The down side of the run was to see how Jordanians are not taking care of their nature – or a bit more general – they don’t take care of their own living environment. I ran in a park with forest called Sport City and was appalled to see that much littering and destructions. The park itself is nice and offers much opportunities (and the only true opportunity in Amman) to run in a “natural” environment. But it seems that people do not appreciate this place. In some places the city itself is littered and so does Sport City. In the forest there is a track that nearly gives you 2 km per lap. If you run on the asphalt and go all around the inside perimeter you can make it to 3 km. If you combine all roads and take all loops you could increase your distance to 8 km (just a guess).

Encouraging Quote


 

Aung San Suu Kyi Burmese National FigureI’m just reading on BBC Online News about Aung San Suu Kyi’s visit to Thailand. There she told Burmese Refugees living in Thailand:

 

“Don’t feel down, or weak.

History is always changing”!

 

I will keep those wise word in my memory. It gives me courage and hope. Yes I am referring to my own situation with unpleasant experiences. That is why I am DuneBlog!

The new Reality


Some times back I found below picture on gPlus. It shows the perceived and real path to success. I like this very much as I feel it is so true for many situations of life – not only business or inventions.

 

This picture has become the new reality of my life. Some folks on this planet have the ability to mess in other peoples life and leave a mess behind. I then have to clean that mess. It costs a lot: physical, emotional and mental energy, nerves, time (that is precious in todays time) and a lot more.

 

Running is the best medicine for such moments.

Perceved and Real path to success

Not written … but I run


I have not written for 6 weeks on my progress on running. Now don’t think I was lazy – I have being running! I was successful in creating a sort of rhythm and regularity and “en passant” even lost some weight. Last weeks I traveled to Amman, Jordan and had a rare pleasure; we had the opportunity in running four days long in the snow. Yes, you her it right – 4 days snow in Amman. Now don’t think when it snows here you have a nice powder, it is more like a spring snow (or corn snow). The third day we had a lot of water mixed in so that our feet have being through and through splashy.

About two weeks earlier I was visiting Prague and could run on ice. I truly love that as you have to develop a smooth running style with well measured foot push in order not to slip. What I notice is that when my body is warm but the cold is around my face I have much different mood and motion to be outside.

Now the winter seems over and I can focus on the dry and warm period.
