Training 2

In general Dave never wakes up early to exercise, but last Sunday, he got up at about 5 O'clock. He washed his face quickly with cold water and went to the park to meet his friend Peter and they started jogging for the first time. Every 10 metres they stopped to relax and drink water. A young woman came up to them and told them, "This is not the way to lose weight! You must run for a longer distance before you rest" Dave said angrily, "You say this because you are not as fat as we are".
