Run Ah Beng Run!

After having a gut-wrenching experience, & taking an advice from my good friend Eng Hean, I decided to start my jogging routine once again.

This is where I jog.

For 50 sen, I could run a 1.6km (1 mile) track which snakes its way through an authentic rainforest setting. At certain times, if you're lucky, you might spot a squirrel or a monkey up in the trees. And if you're really, really, lucky, you might see a snake slithering across the path. If that happens then you can head towards the nearest 6D shop afterwards.

I used to be an avid jogger, running something like 2-3 times a week. I always made sure to cap it at two rounds, which translates into 3.2km or 2 miles for each time I run. This made sure that I don't spend too much time at the park. The thing with jogging is that it could get addictive at times & easily turn into something like a 2-hour marathon, if you're not careful.

I used to clock around 16 mins for 2 miles.

That's not entirely a Watson Nyambek. It'd be something more like a tortoise on hyperspeed.

Today, I almost died after completing one measly round. Today, I felt that almost everyone was zooming past me, including the aunties. One grandma went toe to toe with me but I managed to edge her into the bush.

I really need to get a new pair of nikes. I need to attain top speed to beat grandma.

Greg, this post remind me that I have not exercise for a very long time, even in Kuching also... only badminton once a week but in KL, totally none...

Tummy getting bigger and walk a certain distance could feel tired.... is it a sign of old age, that's what I am thinking??? BTW, I m not that old yet lar... lack of exercise... that's the culprit....hehehe..

I did bought a pair of jogging shoes in KL but until now still place nicely in the box!! Grr..... Super Tulan when I read this post..... REMINDER...REMINDER... hahahahaha....

Maybe you should spend more money & get your own customised shoes with your name on it like what Kenny Sia did. The need to show it off might very well make you wanna go running.
