20th Ramadhan – And The Struggle Continues

Level 2 Day 1

Maximum rounds in 20 min = 22 sets

1 chin-ups
3 push-ups
4 squats

Supplementary Exercises:

Crunches: 20 X 3

Back Extensions: 20 X 3



Alhamdulillah! My left knee seemed fine when I did the workout just now. I even managed to do two extra sets though my pacing was constant and I hardly pushed the intensity. But still it was a tough workout and I enjoyed it to the max.

A worrying note that I should keep in check is that I keep eating more and more for buka puasa nowadays. Though my mom didn’t cook a lot, the amount of food we received from relatives and neighbours meant that the table is always full with different variety of dishes.

For example, I ate nasi beriani dam kambing from Khalid Mosque and mee rebus plus teriyaki chicken just now. This was in contrast to the early days of Ramadhan when my breakfast comsisted of just a few slices of bread and milk.

And my new semester has started and the only time I can fit in my workout is from 5.45am to 6.45am. That’s way too early. Anyone doing your training at that time?

    I am thinking of abandoning training these last 10 days of ramadan. πŸ™‚

  • Faisal

    That sounds good! Haha!

    But I have the 10km Singapore Bay Run on the 3rd day of Raya.

    Hmmm… Should I run tomorrow morning?

  • kooky kash

    Is that on a Sunday? Maybe I can pirate the run and run it with you? Boleh?

  • Faisal

    Yup2. 12th September 2010.

    If you’re brave enough to be Mrs Jack Sparrow for a day then by all means.

    But be warned my pace is around the 1hr 30mins timing. So please think wisely if you still want to run with me.


  • kooky kash

    Who says I am running at your pace? You have about 11 days to train for a one hour pace. Hehehe.

  • Faisal

    Wahaha! I still cannot lah kak. Unless I ride a bicycle then maybe I can match your pace.

    Tapi kan the Men’s category starts at 7.15am while the Women’s category starts at 8.00am. Then ada chance we can meet at the finishing point.

  • Faisal

  • Sasha Farina

    ohh.. takde FB ya..

    yes yes.. he’ll be running too. he’s doing 21k though. flag off lagi awal daripada kita. πŸ˜€

  • Faisal

    Ah great. Then maybe we can have a short meet up after that. πŸ™‚

    Anyway if you overtake me during the run, do say hi yah.

    And maybe you may want to ask Kash if she’s still interested to pirate the run.
