Tuesday Night Run: Hard

Tampines – Pasir Ris Park Connector

Running on the pavement and running on the running or bicycle track is so much different. The lack of absorbance of the stiff concrete pavements means most of the force exerted onto the pavement is rebounded back to my legs as enshrined in Newton’s Third Law of Motion.

Due to this the balls of my feet hurt but I think I will get use to it after a few more runs on the pavement. So in the meantime I just have to bear with it.

Thursday Night Run: First

Tampines – Pasir Ris Park Connector

Went out for a sort of a trial run with the newly married man Fauzi, and my brother-in-law after the Maghrib prayers. He received a pair of Vibram Bikila as part of his wedding gifts and was raring to give it a go.

It was also the first time I ran with my bro-in-law and he was fast. Surely it must be due to all the runs he did with my sister along the River Thames.

Most likely the next agenda is a half-day cycling adventure in Pulau Ubin this Saturday.

I love getting fit!

Do you?


Tuesday Night Run: Still Feeling Fine

I’m happy that my fitness hasn’t deteriorated badly after the indulges during the past weekend. Other than that, there’s nothing much to report except that it is dark running at night.

Duh!

It’s just that, I need to take extra precaution for every step I took due to my unstable knees. And oh yeah, I nearly puke out my sambal sotong and rice at the end of the run. That would be gross to say the least.

Alright adios!


Thursday Afternoon Run: Unconfined Compressive Strength Test

Will be doing the Simplefit Level 3 Day 2 after the maghrib prayers…

Level 3 Day 2

5 rounds for time = 4m 34s
3 pull-ups
10 push-ups
16 squats

Done!

I tried using the cheap compression tights that I bought online for the first time during the run and Simplefit workout. It’s not those fanciful Skins or 2XU compression garments that cost an arm and a leg.

I can’t convincingly say that it helps but I managed to cut one minute from the previous run and shaved off a few more seconds for the Simplefit Level 3 Day 2 workout.

Maybe the compression really helps or maybe it’s just the placebo effect. Or maybe I’m just getting stronger and faster.

Lol!


Tuesday Afternoon Run: Syiok Ah!

The legs are still sore but what better way to loosen them all than by going out for an easy run. The weather today is perfectly good with nary a sign of the haze.

Haze, haze go away, come again another day.

Big, fat monsters want to play.

Thursday Afternoon Run: Haze Is Back

I was contemplating whether to scrap today’s leisure run as the haze was certainly conspicous as I peered out of my window this afternoon.

The National Environment Agency’s (NEA) website was down; most likely from a sudden influx of visits from concerned citizens, so I couldn’t get the latest Pollutant Standards Index (PSI).

But considering that I haven’t been moving my big fat ass for so long, I took the jump though keeping in mind of the awful weather and my lingering cough.

Alhamdulillah the run went well and my legs were not suffering from any major problems. A few more runs and I’m sure the kinks will be ironed out by Sunday.

As for an update, the latest news is that the PSI has touched 108, the worst since 2006 and the NEA web is still down. So take care guys and listen to your body as you go out for your exercise.
