Running in Al Majaz

This is hard to say but I stopped going to the gym, the lazy bum in me is more dominating than ever but I have found a new way to get moving and get fit. I used to wake up now early on Fridays to run in the park nearby our house. A five minutes walk and I can start my days exercise. I know it is not enough and I must exercise at least 3 times a week and I need to find another way to get moving.

Last Friday I run carrying a towel and my mobile phone and without water and I took a lot of photos using the phone camera. Al Majaz Park and Al Majaz Waterfront is picture perfect in the morning.

It's not like there is no one when I was out last Friday but since it's the weekend, only few people who find time to run or exercise you will find in the park.

  1. Thank you for the wonderful post. I just moved to Sharjah and live in one of the buildings overlooking the Palm Tree park. I have not yet stepped out to explore it, so your post gives me a good idea of what to expect :D

    1. Ruchi, now is the best time to explore Al Majaz as the weather outside is wonderful even at noon. Lay a picnic mat and bring some food with your friends! Enjoy
