Felt under the weather today but managed to make it to Thursday Water and Land Training in Kallang.
Water Training (5:30 PM)
There were only about 7 paddlers and Kap Khookie was our steers. We did 5 minute warm-ups, 30-10s (starts and longs), concluding with 30-10-30. Kap Khookie commended me on my twist but towards the end of our water training, my sore ribs started acting up again… I volunteered to move to the back of the boat. Overall good training I guess. Sayang lang sumakit nanaman ang muscles near my rib cage. 😦
Land Training (7:00 PM)
No weights. We proceeded to join the larger FDS group at the 100PLUS Promenade at Stadium. The official warm-up was to jog around 100PLUS Promenade about six times. I attempted to jog and when I did one cycle, my ribs were sore! I stopped at one cycle.
We did a quick endurance exercise as a group. Involving jumping jacks, burpees, mountain climber, star jump, crunches, flutter kicks… I did my best given how sore my rib section was.
I’m back at training! Almost two weeks offline from FDS. I’ve missed it! Paddling is addicting. I rushed over to the swimming complex before the sun had set. I got to swim a little bit and catch up with my teammates. Today’s program was on quick drive and keeping up with the rest. I think we had about six or seven cycles in the pool. I sat in the back of the queue because I’m still dealing with my sore rib cage issue. Ayoko maging nuisance!
Also, picked up ON Serious Mass from Gymmboxx Bishan. Bought it online via FitLion and they deliver it for free at Gymmboxx. (hello again to the cute staff who smiles and welcomes you at gymmboxx bishan… unlike the fake sales-oriented people at the gym I go to at Orchard…) This is a new Whey protein I’m trying after ON 100% Whey. It looks intimidating.
Had plenty of time to kill. I went to visit Yishun to do some exploring with my colleague Greg. I lived in Yishun for almost a year and felt it would be fun to come visit and see what’s developed since.
