Procrastination Before Vacation

In preparation for my upcoming long vacation, I have been procrastinating in the last couple of weeks trying to get things done so that I could have a worry-free break.  Managed to finish up work and head home for mid-autumn dinner with my parents tonight.  Rested a little and napped a couple of hours before […]

Hot Days!!

The weather is so hot these days that one immediately starts sweating within 5 min. of walking outside.  I finally turned on the air-conditioner at home for the first time last weekend, as environmentally friendly as I hoped to be, I seriously couldn’t sleep without it. I thought I could still do my morning run this week […]

Running

Missed my weekly running practice on Wed. morning due to rain (black rain signal), and woke up late yesterday (poor sleep due to irritating mosquito), had to postpone the run to this morning.   Cloudy day, and temperature wasn’t too hot, good day for a healthy dose of exercise. Running, and probably other aerobic exercises too, […]

Keep Running

Made an effort to continue my running practice this morning while the weather still permits.  I’ve always been thankful for the luxury to flexibly schedule my working hours, it’s rather pleasurable to be able to run and sweat in the morning before getting busy with the day. Recently, the luxury to run in the morning […]

Starting Life Anew

After a week of mourning and using cartooning and bible scriptures to help myself emotionally cope with my uncle’s passing away, I wished to start life anew this week.  I started my running practice again, made 3 short morning runs over the week, the associated endorphins generated seemed to help.  I also started a new daily routine […]

2nd Half-Marathon Completed!

Completed my 2nd half-marathon with an improvement of ~15 mins (unofficially) compared to last year!  Thankful.  Building upon experience from last year, this year’s run seemed more pleasurable and less exhaustive, it felt like I can run an extra 1 or 2k after passing the finish line!  Perhaps I can attempt to run a full marathon […]

Running

Managed to complete my longest running practice (~16.5k) before the upcoming half-marathon on Sunday.  Logged in my time and distance and did some rough estimations using my running records.  Comparing with last year, my accumulated practice run in terms of distance is ~20km less this year, but my average pace is considerably faster (improved ~0.3m/s). […]

Running

After going to a seminar last weekend and learning a little bit about the science of long run, I slightly adjusted my running practices.  I went for a practice on Monday and Wednesday and ran at a slightly quicker pace for a shorter distance (~6k).  And after resting a couple of days, I did a practice […]

Keep Your Legs Moving…

The 10k streetathon last Sunday was a bit of a disappointment, poor planning and preparation of the organiser had many runners including me stop way too often for way too long along the way.  Hot weather and street side air pollution were a couple of other disappointing aspects of the run. Perhaps due to adequate practice, […]

Life Back to Normal

My sister and 2 nieces ended their vacation and flew back to Canada yesterday, and my life is slowly returning back to normal. Went for a run this morning.  Without imposing any time limit, I ran slowly and completed about 12k, it’s my first run that’s over 10k since starting my practice in November.
