Run For Your Life! Exercise!

Today, I unusually woke up before 6am. With dim light from the neighbour’s garage and the street, I decided to quietly leave the bed, doing some warm-up exercise. I had learnt this 10-style simple exercise from my high school physical education teacher. I believe I’m the only ex-student who still practises this 2 decades later. …
