My medical examination for the resumption of sport is validated. My return within the INSEP is scheduled for the 2 June with the whole division fencing. It will have to be a little patient.
All the more so as I could see, through pictures, the colleagues in the judo or the swimming resume. Of course, it looks like. The most striking about these images is the smile on the face of all these athletes. Even the judokas during their session of fractionated, usually dreaded by the athletes, who wore a radiant countenance. Even swimmers who were told by the happiness of find the smell of chlorine.
Then, I have not yet had the chance to meet the weight of my outfit fencer and whips blade on the body, but these weeks of deprivation have delivered to the heart of the project the notion of pleasure, pure and simple.
“It has done me good”
My practical fencer is already guided by the game, the fun and the feints. But this week, during a jog, innocuous, where usually my thighs sabreuse a little too developed, do not allow me to fully appreciate the discipline, I realized that this race made me happy. The paths of the more traditional, a wood, a wood, a path crosses… My creativity to invent new paths was at full throttle. Like a child who had just learned to run.
During this walk bucolic, I met two women of sixty years. They were discussing in the wood of Vincennes, and one said to the other : “I’ve been doing my sport for an hour yesterday with the internet, it has done me good”.
To continue the sporting challenge in the life of tomorrow
The “it has done me good” says it all. During this containment, there has been many to discover, recover, or intensify, our practice sports. The sport has accompanied our new life is shaken up, a bit like a pillar, which came to fill the void of this free time unexpected.
If this new focus brings us up something, it is now up to us to continue this challenge in the life of tomorrow. All new joggers that I have seen pass in front of my window during these weeks of confinement, I hope I can continue to admire your progress of a runner. To all the youtubers a day or more experts, thank you for having learned so many poses that pique muscles, or as long of stretches that unwind the body.
Also, companies have a challenge in this quest of sporty fun. For salaried individuals and better health, the sport must find its place in time jobs are often very loaded. The singer Herbert Léonard summarizes this very well : “For fun, take the time from time to time to remake a man into a child and dazzle.”
