Progress! [Apr. 30th, 2007|12:11 am]
eckie
8th April - 5.4km
11th April - 2.4km
15th April - 0km (sick week)
22th April - 4.8km
29th April - 6.2km

Mwahahaha! 3.8km away from my target of 10km. I can do this.. I smell blood! Somethings I learnt today: Routine makes the run boring and tires out not only the body but also your mind.

I recited lines from my books/songs when I got tired at the 2.4 and 4.8 points. I got a little out of breath but it took my mind off the fatigue and kept me going longer. I also ran out from the path I usually take and returned to my original path after a few hundred metres - variation seemed to make my mind suffer from less mental fatigue and allowed me to go that extra km I didn't know I had in me.

Ever wonder what Skeletor does in his free time? This parody is not LOL hilarious but still kinda tickish...

Succumbed to a throat infection on Sunday and can't carry on with my running sessions.. sigh. I hope my body recovers better from the rest and I'll be able to run tomorrow.

..........................................

Started a new career move and I hope it will pay off. The first 2 days are hell but with all the positive reinforcements buzzing around me, I'm starting to feel much more confident. :)

omg deprovement! [Apr. 11th, 2007|07:52 pm]

Ran 2.4km today and my legs turned to lead. Just couldn't move them anymore, terribly disappointed with myself, maybe I'm not eating or resting right for my muscles to recover from fatigue fast enough. Punished myself doing short sprints, chin ups and push ups instead to utilising other muscle groups which aren't as tired.

Die la. how to run 10km like that. -.-;

Breaking the 5km barrier! [Apr. 8th, 2007|10:45 pm]
eckie
Thanks to Google Earth, I've managed to find out that the route I've been running outside of Punggol Park is approximately 2.4 kilometers, did 2 rounds today PLUS an additional 600 meters inside the park which means yeap, I've finally broken the 5km mark by clocking 5.4km today :D

Lots of sweat and pain but I'll be looking to 10km in 2 months time? Crossing my fingers that I can do it, might have to cut down on the weekly booze and smokes session which I'd loathe to do... :X

I feel good - kinda [Apr. 3rd, 2007|02:28 am]

Managed to run today at about 150% of my normal jogging speed for about 3km, which was good, since I usually take my time to finish my runs and that takes way too much time. The trip to Siem Reap refreshed me somewhat with majority of the 5 days there spent walking and a short biking session across potholed roads outside of the town. Major butt and balls ache >.<

The mother of all ballaches


Physically I feel much better, managed to maintain a consistent jogging routine of at least twice a week for a month, went for a trek up Bukit Timah Hill last Saturday morning and finally managed to go below the 70kg mark. Next up - pass my bloody 2.4km run and fingers crossed, drop myself down to 65kg.

Rocky's back! [Mar. 5th, 2007|12:15 pm]

Rocky Balboa's a neat little flick. It was weird seeing Sly Stallone's strangely shaped eyebrows but the moment the Rocky theme song came on and senior citizen Rocky started running up those steps again you had to start rooting for old Sly.

Big name, little movie and lots of heart.

Next up - waiting on 300!
