Exercises (or Excuses?)

2 more days to the big event, SC 10km Run... An event which i have signed up in Aug, tog tt i will be able to achieve the distance of 10km. But now.. seems like a bit difficult. I havent been training much. Only once a week aerobics class, follow by minor jogging on the threadmill. My distance on threadmill nvr even hit 3km. I sucks big time tis rd! In for BIG trouble as i'm not fully prepared.

Juz last wk, or my last exercise, i try jog on threadmill n only hit 1.6km. I was so hungry and cant concerntrate on running... My mind was full of food sia. Wen i finish my jog, i peep over to another ger who was running beside me. She run so loudly wif her feet stomp heavily on the threadmill... And guess wat? She ran a distance of 5+km. Wat a shame of myself... Tink she maybe gng for the SC run too...

On Monday, i went to visit my gynae. Coz i have missed my menses for 3mths liao. I'm not prgnt! Took countless of prgncy test kits, and still negative. So worried i have grown cryst or some cancers diesease. Heng ar.. gynae say i got plenty of eggs, but they r not growing, therefore not ovulating. I got the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. My cure is to slim down as my obese is affecting my menstruation cycle. So sad lor. Well.. i lose some weight initially, den gain some recently again. That's wen my cycle stop. Gynae advise that it is ok to miss 3mths of menses, but once exceed tt, i muz quickly take some medicines to induce my ovulation. If not the womb lining will be too thick and is prone to cancer cells. WAH.. really scare me lor.

So now, i muz work DOUBLY hard to slim down, for a healthier me, and of coz a prettier me. And to make sure no1 is gng to give up his/her seat for me wen i'm not prgnt (which some1 did to me tis mrng at mrt! I'm NOT prgnt! Flabby tummy only!!! >_<).

I din exercise tis wk, but is watching my diet liao. Wanted to go for a swim on tue, but miss the timing. Will be doing my 10km tis sunday.. If no pain for early nxt wk, will be back into my exercise routine. Hopefully can lose weight to 60kg by end of the yr. Another 5kg before CNY 2008. Ya.. that's my GOAL in 2mths time!

Current goal in 2 Days time: Complete my 10km run in less den 1hr 30min. Bless me n wish me LUCK~!

Vertical Marathon 2007

Last sunday i joined hb and his collegues/friend at the Swissotel VM. This is hb and my first attempt. In the past weeks, i have only trained on the climbing machine at gym. So not sure wat it was like. From the past records, i saw ple disqualified, so which mean if i cant take it, i can quit half way. Den wen i went to collect the goodie bag, i saw so many young girls. At least i felt more comfortable, coz they don look like those very fit type of girls. So i wont feel so stress.

At the event, it wasnt very crowded.. as compared to the SB run. Maybe the organisers are more efficient or lesser participants. A funny incident happen at the register counter. The female staff ask me if i was in the category under 20. Hee~! So happy lor.. i look so 'young' to be mistaken as under 20's. Den i blur blur say "No, 20 - 39 category" Oppss.. i over-stated my category... Shd be 20-29. Lucky the ger understand wat i saying, if not i very malu lor. Ple say me young, yet i say i'm so old. After registration, v took some pics. Saw jiaman and his dad is joining too. A very fit uncle lor.. over 50 y.o. Soon the race started, my catergory was Female 20-29, and it was after the "Under 20's", "Over 50's" and the Male 20-29.

Limin 'fly me kite' on tt day for a short holidays to msia. Heng my hb's collegue's wife, Yvonne is participating alone too. So v both Q together. Wen our race start, we both run ahead to the stairs and took 2 stairs at a time.. after a few storeys, i gave up and took 1 step ea... Wah.. i buah ta han liao.. tired at the 8-9th storey. With 60+ storey to go, i so worry lor. I almost stop at every storey, gasping for air and my energy.. it so tiring n difficult.. i kept wanting to give up... Wen i reach certain storey, i bump into yvonne, and she encourage me to continue, and climb a few storey wif me. Den she soon went out of my sight, ahead of me. Den soon i c ple starting to over-take me. Some are very friendly and keep encouraging me not to give up.. The ushers/marshals are also encouraging too. And i don noe how i ended up at the 73th storey in the end. Haha.. I felt so blur and giddy wen i reach the top. Only noe i pass the chip timing device and sum one place a medal over my head to make my achievement.. Wah so happy.. finally over.. i walk ard in daze for a few min b4 i drop "dead" on the floor.. Tt wen i recover myself and pose for some pic taking. Din really c the scenery as i was too tired but it was windy and very high.

After breakfast, we went to pick up our certificates. Was told that Jiaman's dad won the 3rd plc in his catergory. His dad very power ar... tink ard 12min for a 50yo uncle leh. I tog i complete in 30min +, but my cert shown 18min 49sec. Wow.. so proud of such a good timing. I estimate 20min b4 the race, 30min after the race and i got less dan 20min for the race. 1st in my category was 11m 38s, while last was 25m. I'm rank 52 out of 74. 70% percentile from the top. So not bad lor.

Will i join again next year... my answer is NO!
