Going Outside: One Small Step

Going Outside: One Small Step

Door Joey Mills

So you want to get to fit. I’m not commenting on your weight dear reader, I mean I’m sure you’re lovely. In fact you’re reading this so you must be. But if you do want to get fit, it is easy to let the slightest thing put you off.

For me it is gyms, and the creatures that inhabit them that turn me from fitness freak to, well regular freak. Je ziet je kunt het niet meer dan drie passen over een sportschool vloer deze dagen zonder het zien van magere tieners nemen van Instagram foto's van zichzelf in de Gold's Gym toppen van hun moeder kreeg van de markt en blaffende "do u zelfs bro tillen? (sic)" naar elkaar. De enige lift wil ik na dat is een tot McDonald's, where sure the people are still weird but they know my struggle.

Dus niet te willen Nan's Davina McCall dvd-collectie overvallen en "go girl" in mijn spandex onesie terwijl ik per ongeluk schop de hond over de bank, Ik ben pas echt vertrokken met een optie als het gaat om het verkrijgen van Trim. I have to go outside. Nu weet ik wat je denkt, outside is rubbish. The weather is generally bad even during what passes for a British summer, kun je niet oefenen in je broek, opdat u het risico dat dingen gegooid op je, and worst of all there is people out there. Real, actual people with their people eyes and people voices, judging you for managing to drag yourself from a Netflix binge long enough to blink in the sunlight like a newborn chimp being extricated from its mother by an overeager zookeeper.

But trust me blogosphere, it is not all bad. For a start you can run away from all the people! In feite is het aangemoedigd, the further you run the more exercise you have actually done! If you are a binge-watching hermit looking to tone up, outside is actually the best place for you. Geloof je me niet o-coach rijden cinefiel? Just think about how many of your favourite films take place outside. Rocky Balboa runs up some steps and now you can too. Forrest Gump runs through decades of American history! Follow him and run reader run! Even The Terminator does much of his menacing stalking outdoors. Just please, no weapons!

Another great reason to get out there and put the work in is the fact that this country might not have nice weather but it does have incredible, historic scenery. Get out and see some of it. Better yet run amongst it, take in the sights and smells of your town and you might just find out some things you never knew about your neighbourhood. Just stay away from some of the more well-known tourist areas, nobody wants to end up on the 6 0'Clock nieuws voor proberen te horde Stonehenge.

So turn off your fifth episode of Breaking Bad of the day, wipe on some HayMax to ward off those pesky outdoor allergens and see some of the world. You never know, you might find it even more thrilling than what Walter White is up to.
