Run for your life could mean there’s a tree about to fall on top of you so you’d better…
Or maybe there’s a bush fire out of control, now the wind has changed direction and it’s headin’ your way, you’d better….
In the case of the Beatles, in the song ‘Run For Your life’
John Lennon is telling his unfaithful girlfriend she’d better do just that if she knows what’s good for her.
“you better run for your life while you can little girl, catch you with another man, that’s the end, little girl”
If you look at the photo above you’ll see these people are having a great time and really they’re keeping fit and running for their lives at the same time.
Jogging is something I do four times a week.
No problem though, it doesn’t look like there’s any danger, no cliffs nearby, I’m not on a busy road, can’t see any fires or any trees falling down but…
As pathetic as it sounds, I really do look at it as a form of ‘running for my life’
Don’t worry, I’m not makin’ myself out to be some kinda hero!
Because sometimes when I get home from work the last thing I want to do is go for a run.
I only work four days a week so I’ve made a commitment to have a run four times a week and on the other days I just do a few weights.
To be totally honest, some nights I almost make up some excuse why I shouldn’t go for a run, then I tell myself, “so, you wanna be one of those people that are unfit, unhealthy and don’t have the energy to enjoy their lives?”
That makes me think of my brother in law and a lot of my friends that fit that description and the next thing, I’m puttin’ my sneakers on without even thinkin’ about it, grabbin’ my mp3 player and going out the front door full of enthusiasm….yep… I’m Running For My Life.
Do you have a fitness routine or similar to keep you in shape, would love to hear what you do?
