Krabi, Sep 2014

Vacation time. Gloomy weather. Isolated location. Injured foot. No running. A bit of swimming and lifting.

Good time with family.

New focus

Another journey, another opportunity to learn.

from speed, to strength
from km, to kg
from laps, to plates
from keeping slim, to bulking up

first day at the gym

first day at the gym (may 2014)

Since the hospital stay in Aug 2012, I’d been having trouble with joints when running. So I decided to try something else. Found lifting weight to be easier and suit my schedule better for now. It makes me feel stronger too. Still walking everyday for cardio. But no long run for now. May do another race and try to better the PR’s in the future. But for now, I’m going for a new goal. New diet, new workout, new focus. Life is just about trying out different things.
