By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

What is your favorite sport exercice?

What is your favorite sport exercise? whatever it was about fitness or body building

i enjoy Footing and Running Around the sport salle or the stadium and making push-ups when pausing the run exercice, this for the fitness,
and i like the Incline Dumbbell Press exercise for body building, which trains the chest and the shoulders.

What about you? do you like sports and enjoy it? have you some exercise you don't get bored from? feel free to share!

    @nour360 I like running, I have run for twenty years and I try to do it three or four time a week. I'm not able to go in gym because I love to do sport outdoor. Therefore if I'm free I run outdoor.

    @biso running in the clean air is the best exercise to keep up your fitness, and you have made a great job for making three or four runs weekly for twenty years, i think your body is fresher that a 20 years old of nowadays young people, indeed its good to make a healthy habit and keep it.

    @nour360 oh yes I have done a great job, think you that I run over hundred marathons plus some ultramarathons and two desert experiences by 250 kilometres each.
  • nour360nour360 Posts: 62 ✭✭
    @biso wow amazing adventures, so you traveled and participated in marathons in different countries, i wonder if you had a run in Tunisia before, we have a Carthage marathon in February 2016 which is an international race, you lived a very good experience in your best sport and your hobby, not like me, i am a beginner kick-boxer and still training for the next tournament that i will participate in, hoping for a successful career :) like yours.

    @nour360 thanks for compliments, I not done races in Tunisia, was in Marocco for the Marathon des Sables which was an amazing experience. I wish you great scores for your sport activity which is hard and tiring. Good job and never give up!

    I do some exercises ride a donkey and ride a bike for one hour
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,807 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Gomaa, is it true? You have got a donkey and ride it? Is it difficult to ride a donkey?

    @Zom ride donkey not easy you need to learn how you can control the donkey.
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,807 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    How do you learn that @gomaa?

    I know that a donkey will never take you where a paths in risky for him and you. Even when you're not aware of it yourself, but still want to keep going. So how do you learn how to control the donkey? What does it mean 'control the donkey'?

    @Zom a lot of differents between horses and donkey l see donkey so kind you can ride easily but don't afraid of donkey and said some words when you want to ride for example she but if you want to stop said hesh and trying to avoid any click to donkey or bites. I think the female more kind and so lovely but the male dangerous . I need to make discussion about this topic more interesting
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,807 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @gomaa, I would trust more a donkey than a horse. Horses make me feel nervous. Looking forward to participating in your discussion thread abut donkeys @Gomaa. :)

    @Zom yes of course the donkey so kind more than horse because the horse smarter than donkey and trick.
    I don't like horses because so harmful for children but anychild can play with donkey and ride a donkey not difficult if you feel friad may be you fail in the earth trust yourself.
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,807 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    A horse is smarter than a donkey? It's hard to believe @Gooma. Why do you say that?

    I saw a place nearby that teaches Tai Chi. I think I might see about trying this out. Does anyone here do it?
  • KhaliedKhalied EgyptPosts: 2,224 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Zom the horse make trick but the donkey low smart . the donkey so kind any child can deal with donkey but the horses need to one person more epically
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,807 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I agree that a horse is not reliable at all. They probably would prefer to go feral, go back wild in nature instead of being people's pet or tool.

    I was wondering, do you have a donkey only for riding them? Do you use it for another purpose?

    My favourite sports excercise is walking and taking the dumbbell up and down (dumbbell for famale). After bullying in school, I determined to enhance my health. I think everyone should doing sport excercises. It is good for our cells.

    Hi all! My favorite sport is, without doubt, cannoing.
    I practiced cannoing during three years, but now I don't have time.
    But sometimes I'm going to the gym.. and walk my dog
    I need to practise exercice frequently, it's healthy to body and mind.

  • nour360nour360 Posts: 62 ✭✭
    @Dmitry , @Rema ice skate and all the winter games are very entertaining, i live in a country where snow doesn't fall all the year, and i hope one day to get a chance to visit a cold weathered country to play and enjoy, especially skying, i think i will take a long time to get used to it.
  • nour360nour360 Posts: 62 ✭✭
