Pounding the ground

I just had a lovely 4km run today. Lungs feel like it can handle my deep breaths a bit better, doesn't feel as heavy like a week ago. Body didn't tire as easily. I'm slowly getting back my fitness, but i've still a way to go... Judging by my 100m sprint that i do for fun after my runs. Usually the sprint speed will last the whole way but today i slowed before i hit the finishing 0 meter mark.

I got my mailer from Standard Chartered. To register at a discounted rate, I've got to register soon... So... if any of you girls want to run, we'll do the 10km together. If not, i'll be signing up for the 21km.

Please drop me message when/if you read this.

why only girls... ...
and why only 10km if they're girls?
gender discrimination. sexist. =p

ambrose:

you forgot... you're my sister what, so you're most entitled to sign up with me.

and since when was i sexist??? i am a girl, and i am going to run 21km if no one runs with me. (other then the boyflen)

ah, the reason for the distances is cos i've been trying to recruit my cell girls and at least from what i know, they do not run races on a regular basis. So, 10km as a start should be manageable. I've already run 10km last year, so if no one runs with me then i'll attempt 21km. Usually for longer distances, i refrain from having running partners because at a certain point in time, people will begin to run their own races. Either slow down or pick up speed or something... And i don't want to impose on others nor i on others. So... 21km alone, or 10km with my cell girls... And of course, you being my sister, you are also most welcome and cordially invited to join me and my gang.

haiya, you talk so much but don't even train to run! silly ambrose.

Ambrose said...

yeah! gba rocks =) there's all the cool rpg games, the classic final fantasy series included, pokemon.. and speaking of gameboy advance, the cool graphics bring along cool games like the KoF series, Yugi-Oh, and many many more!
meh sorry.. during army play quite abit of GBA lol =p frenz bring in theirs -,-'"

yeah i train alot.. ingame =p my characters are running and jumping all over the place! ROFL

on a more serious note, i'm considering signing up for the 21km. i know i can definitely complete it... .... just whether i finish it walking or running LOL. i usually start a walk-run routine after the 5km mark, even during army days haha! i'm a 5km runner =p

hey anon, try playing wii sports =p if you have the chance.. costs a bomb! but it's fun. imagine playing virtual tennis.. but having the feeling of swinging yur racket and all! tried it when my cousin brought the system and games back from taiwan ^^

Ambrose said...

oh oh! gotta do a correction. i actually played original gameboy pokemon games too! using a gameboy emulator and game mods ^^ then can play on comp! =p that was eons ago, back in sec/jc ^_^
graphics were horrendous, but super fun! and yeah there's always mario =p
and my fave game: BattleCity! the one where you control one tank and take on an army of them haha =p through different maps and all. still one of my fave games ^^ if i ever had it, i'd play it =D

my company has subsidies for all these events. all the runs they have, my company is subsidising us to join. but i really hate running. i prefer to walk and hey other than running after the bus. it is a chore, but a necessary evil.whohooooo
