Week 2 (14 Jan - 20 Jan)

Monday (14 Jan)
=============

Slept very late last night... But still managed to wake up on time this morning... Lucky me... Rush down to Bugis' California Fitness to clock my 1 hour training run on the treadmill... Covering a distance of 8.35km in total... Felt good after the run... I can't be unhappy since today is Monday and somehow, I did not slack... :p Tonight and tomorrow morning shall take a break from training... Next training will be tomorrow evening... Need to do some strength training to compliment my 100-mile preparation... :)


Tuesday (15 Jan)
=============

As usual, no running or training on Tues morning but went to the gym in the evening. Just the normal 4 upper body and 4 lower body exercises in the gym. But quite sian and very time consuming to wait for machines, especially in the evening where there were crowds. In future, I shall be more thick-skinned and asked to share machines. :p


Wednesday (16 Jan)
=============

Same routine. Actually it could be quite fun running on the threadmill in the morning. :p At least, I get to catch up with the news that's being screened across the TVs. Sports result, world news, latest on the US Presidential election campaign, and financial news.


Thursday (17 Jan)
=============

This morning, did some strength training in the morning. Followed by another set of strength training in the evening. Its getting mundane although its just 2 weeks into my program!!! I must persevere.


Friday (18 Jan)
=============

Great! Weekend is coming. I love Friday especially. Cos its the 3rd and last day of running on threadmill. :p Its really difficult sometimes to run on threadmill but I guess I had no complain. The "weather" - always nice and cool - and I got to watch the sports update. Besides, it also meant that I cannot slack since I always maintained my speed or up it...


Saturday (19 Jan)
=============

Supposed to go to MR for my cross country terrain running this morning BUT I couldn't wake up. :( So I went to Bedok Reservoir to run instead. Managed to run 16.5km and wow, the weather was super HOT!!! And After the run, I went for my sports massage and it was yet another torturous session. Sharon said my ITB and the outside of my upper thigh was super tight and that I must remember to stretch more often. I think what she meant to tell me is that I must remember to stretch or else, the next session would continue to be as torturous! I don't look forward to 13 Feb. Scary date.


Sunday (20 Jan)
=============

I went to the gym to run again this morning. Managed to clock a 2-hour session and its a great excuse to slack a bit (supposed to run 20km but only managed 18km due to the slower speed set). I guess it was okie since I already ran 16.5km yesterday. Besides, I had to rush down to Tampines for shutehelup's wedding celebration! Phew, what a good excuse I had. :p Great that another week was gone and I'm fully into the swing of things.
