I went out to run this morning. Or attempted to run more like it. Anyway, it was terrible. I had been taking it too easy after PNM and then the week of eating sinfully in Chennai and last week I was down and out , especially when migraine+low bp decided to join venture and visit me.
Anyway, I brisked walk some, jogged some, ran some and sprinted some. Decided to give the heart a bit of jolt and remind my body that the regime is starting again. I've got to get it working again.
The jogging place was bustling with people this morning. I arrived at 730am, got caught in traffic sending my son to school. Horrors of going through Klang town nowadays. A lot of new faces and and familiar ones.
A group of guys (in their 30's) was already resting and yakking when I was doing my 4th round and one of them waved and said hi. Uugh he looks vaguely familiar but cant really place him. I nodded and ran on.
I finished my run and stretched and walk towards my car. The guy that waved was at his car too. He smiled and asked "dah habis?" to which I replied. And then he simply said, "dulu you gemuk sekarang dah cantik, slim" He caught me totally off-guard, and I am sure it showed on my surprised expression. LOL. I I mumbled a thank you rather akwardly and went to my car.
In the privacy of my car, I was elated.
You see, when a makcik like me, gets a compliment like that, our heart swells and fills with pride and make us smile like a goofy, ear to ear grin in giddiness. I am still smiling ear to ear, even now ;0) maybe I can run better tomorrow too !
