Re: GET IN SHAPE THREAD: Weight-loss, Dieters, and Exercise-enthusiast
My weight is perfect for my height, but I've got a bit of belly and my stamina is so freaking low. Yesterday I left a match unfinished trailling 6-3 2-2, then when I came back today 2 games later my energy was already very low, trailling at 5-3 in the 2nd I made a superhuman effort and won it 7-5, but in the 3rd I just couldn't and I lost it 6-2. I've been thinking about starting jogging something like 3 days a week, you know with slow intervals of running and walking, so that in a few months I can already jog a lot without having to stop, I guess that will help me a lot for tennis, won't it? (excuse my English, usually it's better but today I'm so tired I won't even bother to care about it
The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
