In Search of A/The Point of Life

DAY 5: THE GUINEA PIG OF LIFE 3.0 IS FALLEN (OFF THE TREADMILL)

Fallen

Fallen

In this long and lovely journey of Life 3,0, there are many lessons I will learn, as expected of a guinea pig of Life 3.0.

Indeed, I have already acquired my first injury for this road trip. At the last 100 metres of my 5km run on the treadmill, I fell off the treadmill at 14kmh, all due to the rather silly reason that I lost focus. 2 of my kneecaps have some skin off, in a warm crimson (no photohopping on this one, I tell you, my dear readers); fortunately, the other 4 legs are in tact.

Lessons learnt in Day 5 of my Quest For The Meaning of A Life 3.0:

1) DO NOT LOSE FOCUS!! It was only a quickie, and we have done this many, many times already in our previous lives – still, it happened. Now we doubt that Kaidie can complete that 42km marathon or the full 1000-days in life 3.0, don’t we! (tsk tsk).

2) Do not be injured ever again! Refer back to Rough Guide So Far: the dictum of ‘Do Not Be Hurt’. I have to have enough physical and mental stamina and fitness for the next 995 days. It is all about staying power.

3) It is dangerous to work out at the gym as a Roach. (Gregor is wise not to leave his room).

Indeed I have learnt my lesson well. If the news are to be believed, there will be more snowy days to come. Either run outdoors with a brolly, or shapeshift to a hamster to excel on the treadmill. All that hair would have cushioned my downfall from grace.

    Apart from clothes (and an alluring smile) I wear nothing – because I know that I get distracted easily, with my attention deficiency due to my very young age (Also, since I sweat like a [guinea] pig when I run, any electronic gadget will have to be bubblewrapped or waterproof). YES!! Focus Kaidie, focus!! Thanks Lucy for your advice. I will add that to the Rough Guide. KAIDIE WILL RISE AGAIN!

    Do you not wear the red cord thing to stop you falling off?

    Hello Dadam,
    Having just come off the umbilical cord (which I bit off myself), I did not want to be tied to an other cord… No such problems now as a hamster! I can go on, and on, and on (since there is nothing else to do) (also since it’s Xmas).
    THANK YOU for your advice though – very useful for future reference (in future formations). I will put that down on my small list of advices from my Dear Readers – DO KEEP THEM COMING!
