Notes:

After reading Syah’s latest post, Guilty Run, I was so overcome with guilt that I told myself that I need to log in a run today by hook or by crook. Nothing will stop me unless the ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajoekull volcano pays this country an unwelcome visit.

Luckily it didn’t, as this morning’s weather was just nice for a quick warm up run as the sun decided to sleep in. It was so cooling that I decided to have my bicycle ride straightaway after the run.

Then did I realise why a combination of a swim – bike, bike – run or any of that permutations is called a “brick” session as my quadriceps started to transform themselves into those heavy bricks that are used to construct buildings. My legs were so exhausted that I was really hoping that my three rounds around the Pasir Ris Park would end as quickly as possible.

Fortunately, I didn’t suffer from any cramps or injuries of that sort though I really pushed hard all the way. Hopefully these two sessions will absolve me from any guilty feelings for not clocking any runs or cycles these past few days.
