Push-ups:0
Walking: 50 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :3+3 minutes

Two years and 174 days in a row have passed since I quit smoking.
I can understand why Aichi Prefecture is one of the worst areas in the number of death
toll of traffic accidents.
Today again, while riding a bike on my way to the work place, I saw a crazy driver
driving a car straight ahead with its blinker on.
One is enough, and one is too many.
I'll really have to be careful not to become caught in an accident.
I have to say again that every single car driver is absolutely evil in principle.
Since they are protected by steel plates, they CAN be indifferent to the safety of others.

I could keep no-smoking for two years and 173 days in a row.
I'm wondering if I should resume push-ups but actually there is still a little dindle
in my right elbow and right index finger.
So, I'm wondering if I should NOT resume them until it has completely disappear.
It's completely cloudy today and sometimes there is a very little rain in Nagoya.
The humidity must be high because I feel a little clammy.
At the same time, it may be lucky that clouds are blocking severe sunshine.

I kept no-smoking for two years and 172 days in a row.
I'm afraid that my arms' muscle must have been weakened completely after stopping push-ups
due maily to the pain in my right elbow and shoulder.
It's quite cloudy and probably it's going to start raining very soon.
Weather officials say the rainy season of this year has begun in Tokai area, about ten
days earlier than an average year.
I hope it'll rain not so heavily...I mean the appropriate amout of rain will be OK.

I could keep no-smoking for two years and 171 days in a row.
I've decided to add jogging on the spot to my physical exercises and began doing that
from two rounds of 3 minutes, and I hope to continue as long as possible.
If possible,....I really want to climb Mt. Fuji some day.....if possible.
So, I want to do something to strengthen my body with the hope of that.
Anyway it's quite cloudy and looks like it's going to start raining soon in Nagoya.
I'm afraid that the rainy season may be coming earlier than usual.

Push-ups:0
Walking: a total of 4 hours and 10 minutes
Standing with one leg :0 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

I kept no-smoking for two years and 170 days in a row.
Yesterday I did a four-hour walking for the first time in a very long time.
I walked from my work place from near Iwatsuka Subway staiton in Nagoya, Aichi
Prefecture to Kuwana JR station in Mie Prefcture by way of Kanie Kintetsu station.
It took about four hours and I took a break four times for a total of one and a
half hours.
So, I started at twelve fourty-five and reached Kuwana at about six fifteen.
Actually this walking has made me boost my confidence.
If I take a break several times, I may be able to do a five-hour walking, which
I think is a prerequisite for climbing up Mt. Fuji.
Anyway I hope to keep walking practice.

I could keep no-smoking for two years and 168 days in a row.
Seventy days have passed since I stopped doing push-ups due maily to the pain in my
right elbow and shoulder.
The pain is almost completely disappearing although I feel sometimes a little pain.
However, the dindle in my right index finger is really persistent and still here.
I tried walking from JR Kanie station to my work place, which took about 80 minutes,
as many as 15 minutes longer than I expected.
So, I have to change my long-distance walking route.
