Running at the zoo.
Doesn’t that sound hilarious? I got invited to join the SIA Engineering Company Fun Run at Singapore Zoo over the weekend. It was just a 5km route… but with sweet adrenaline dripping from last week’s Singapore River Regatta… kinareer ko yung takbo.
I was overtaking little kids and trying to get into my pace. I passed by giraffes, monkeys, and maybe tigers but I wasn’t looking lol. I felt that the fun run was less than 5km. But it was “fun” nevertheless… because seeing the sun rise over the resevoir at the back of the zoo was beautiful.
I have noticed that my endurance has improved since I started using the treadmill consistently at the gym every day. I try to get a minimum 15 minutes on a faster speed setting. At the end of 15 minutes I am sweating and my face looks like shit but it’s rewarding.
Because on the dragon boat recently, I noticed my recovery is faster. I have a little more to give when it comes to load and to reach (given the person in front of me is leaning forward). I think this is because of the treadmill. I want to up the speed pa nga WITHOUT FALLING OFF THE MACHINE LIKE SOMEONE I KNOW.
So I’m also trying to view my progress using these machines at the gym that analyze your fat or body composition. The latest one says that my fat percentage is at 16.6%. I want to get that to 12% before Boracay next year… possible? I should shut up and lift.
Let’s be fun, fierce, fabulous… shall we?
