yes I like Swimming & Running a lot. And I was training for two months from 1 year ago. But I stopped because of personal reasons.
I don't care about competition but about sport.

I 'm not used to running . But I love it as it can keep my body fit and make me fresh for all day. But because of my daily chaos , I didn't get the chance to run outside . So, I prefer workouts at home . To the best of my recollection , I 've taken part in 400m running race . In that , I felt so tired and my legs were extremely numb. So, my speed was too bad and I got the second from the last. It was just back in the days . Now , I have to try running at my best just for my health.

I like running. I train to run 10 K. Due to the pandemic I stopped training for 10 month. Running in very important to my life. It allows me to be good with myself. It keep me healthy. Something very important is to have a watch that helps you measure time, speed and heart rate.

I like walking. I walk everyday in the morning in Almond Park. I try to stard running but I think in first time is so dificcult because when I try to run I become so numb. I think my body is not ready for this exercices. When I was young I interested volleyball and basketball.

I don't like running, but I used to go to the gym to work out five days a week, when the gims were open. Now, due to Covid, I work out at home. When I was young I played volleyball as an amateur.
