Welcome to Dialogue Frog's podcasts for English listening. So, I did something yesterday.
Yeah, and I haven't done it for a very, very long time.
Did you check your email?
Let's not talk about that because I have not checked my email. No, and I'm talking about, uh, working out. I worked out for the first time in a long time.
I don't normally work out. Do you?
No. I do like to exercise my right to eat lots of things.
I guess that's one form of exercise, but working out, we're talking about like moving your body to gain muscle or dexterity or something like that. We've talked about sports before and I think, you know, neither of us are really big sports people.
I've always been kind of more bookish.
But when, when I work out, like usually I'm on a treadmill, especially right now because it's cold outside.
But I like to make it as efficient as possible. So I don't like just walking or jogging. I want to run, like, I want to run as fast as I can for the least amount of time as possible and go as far as I can.
And do you know what the result of that is?
My legs hurt really bad.
'Cause I don't run often.
Do you ever, like when you're working out, do you get like self-conscious of how you look like when you're, when you're running or something like the shape of running?
Um, that's interesting. No, I've never had that, um, experience.
There's a, there's a lot of posture involved, I think, in running, and some of that has to do with like, having, making sure you're actually using your muscles in a good way.
Holding your body well, to maximize, to maximize exercise for all of the muscles in your body.
But also, so you don't hurt yourself.
But whenever- I always feel like I'm not standing or running in like a good posture and like I'm going to hurt myself.
But then I don't really know the right posture so I can't really fix it myself.
It's probably why people go to the gym.
I went to the gym once and I got on the treadmill and I ran a really long ways but afterwards I found out I was still in the same place when I started.
Oh man, that's rough.
Thought I was gonna go somewhere.
Sorry about that.
Did you get your money back?
I-I should've, I should.
L-lodge a formal complaint.
Always taking people's money.
