Well, maybe not so much. But he tries!
On a sweltering Friday morning in February, everyone at Nyan’s school headed over to a sports track near the National Stadium for the school’s annual Sports Day – a morning of running, throwing, jumping, and general sweating. Let’s see how our hero did.
The kids made sure to do plenty of stretching.
Then it was on to the competitions! Okay, it wasn’t a competition – just kids doing athletic things, like throwing things.
There was also a sprint:
And a longer run – maybe 100 meters? You can see Nyan pulling up the rear here, mostly (we think) because he’s more interested in looking around rather than in running. We still think he could be a decent runner, if he focuses, and in fact Daddy took him on a 1-kilometer run around the block the other day. So maybe it’ll become a habit.
There was jumping too – from a stand-still and from a running start. (Sorry – not sure what those are specifically called. It’s been many years since your humble blogger was in PE class.)
All in all, it was a hot, sweaty and fun morning.
