Fitness in Dubai
Although it has a somewhat hedonistic image, exercise and the encouragement of outdoor activities is also very much part of the Dubai lifestyle. The Government has been actively promoting the 30 X 30 initiative where the residents are encouraged to do 30 minutes exercise for 30 days in October and November. As I have commented before, cycle tracks are a big thing in Dubai - over 250 km both in the city and in the desert. And of course this is the best time of year to indulge as the mercury drops and the opportunities to live the outdoor life increase. Es brother D is in town so we took ourselves off to the beach for the first time since the beginning of the Summer. It was lovely and not for the first time we were asking ourselves why we do not do it more often. Finding time to indulge is always an a challenge but hopefully, having rediscovered the joys of fresh air and the great outdoors we will surprise ourselves.
