Waking up at 6, we had the great plan to go jogging with my roommates. The air was very fresh, really, it’s much better than to jog in the afternoon. And what life was already going on on the beach! There were many joggers and walkers with their dogs playing in the sand. However, after jogging for one hour, we felt so alive. It was such a good feeling and the best thing was: we still had the whole day for making it a good one.
Bali Buda is calling for breakfast! That’s a beautiful café just around the corner of Jalan Raya Canggu. This café supports the worldwide Grassroots-movement and produces ecological as well as econimical sustainable products. It’s claim is “real food by real people”. Bali Buda is designed very beautiful from the interior as there are beams made from timber on all walls. For drinking we ordered one Macao made of organic raw cacao, maca, honey and soy milk and one pot of organic Bali coffee. Served with a green glass straw, the Macao is of course very sustainable. We were very surprised that there were no napkins made of paper but of cotton.
Chilling and studying time on the pool. Between swimming and paddling on our air beds, we had to learn for our midterms which are between Wednesday and Friday. It was really relaxing just not to drive around all the time.
In the evening my roommates and me went to kickboxing in Dojo Aora. This Dojo is part of Hammerhead Gym in Kuta. It started at 17.30. The first 40 minutes were “just” warming up. But this warming up consists of many exhausting exercises. After each jogging round in the gym, the trainer started with 40 squats. After the next round we did 40 push-ups and 40 sit-ups. Of course, we were sweating out of every single pore. What a feeling doing the exercises in the middle of around 22 sweating athletes! For one hour we trained upper cuts, fisticuffs and kicks against the makiwara. We were just sweating and having fun all the time. Wow, how good it felt to exploit! We will definetely join the next kickboxing-course on Thursday evening. Feel free joining us =)
