9.30 am – 15 min Light Beach Running
Woke up and scootered over to Camps Bay for a light morning run. Love the feeling of getting over the Kloof Neck and feeling how the temperature drops a few degrees instantly, love the sound of the waves and the cold Atlantic Ocean to my feet while just keeping a light pose stride. I obviusly love the feeling of the hot sun on my skin while just letting my heartrate rise slightly. Only did four side to sides in a very moderate tempo to just get my body moving, a bit stiff in ankles and lower back, no big problems however.
So, here’s the question for you, try to imaging being in the same situation and give me a serious answer:
After finishing your light beach run you head up to your favourite cliff to do your morning yoga, let’s pretend you are all yogis now. On the way up you smile at the beautiful woman who’s not ashamed of ”European style” sunbathing, neither should she be, but not smiling anymore when you reach the top of your cliff. Approximately ten meters away lies a man face down on the edge of the cliff, you can tell he’s obviusly homeless by the way he’s dressed in way too warm and full covering, dirty and broken clothes. He lies perfectly still and you can’t really tell if his chest is moving at all. So, what do you do? I’ll give you some options:
- You pretend you didn’t see him and move over to another spot to do your yoga. It’s not your problem.
- You walk over to one of the police officers or security guards that are frequently patrolling the beach walk. This is South Africa after all and he could be dangerous.
- You act in another way, how?
If you give me some honest answers I’ll let you know what I did, witch I’m by no means is sure was the right thing. After all I got rewarded with finding my protein shake totally spoiled in the trunk of my scooter because of the hot sun so if that’s any kind of sign, I should’ve apparently picked anoter option.. 😉
