Ironman Vietnam 70.3 Danang

I’d be lying if I said I was calm as a clam for this race. I had started Ironman training from about February, and I’m happy to say it has been going well. Thus far, every event I’ve taken part in has proven that my training is paying off, and I am quite pleased about … Continue reading »

T-39 days to the Big Eagle

It’s just a little over a month to Ironman. I had initially wanted to write a post with my thoughts about my whole journey at exactly 30 days to Ironman, but I happen to have some free time right now, and my notebook is fully charged right this very moment, so I figured why not now. … Continue reading »

113 Bukit Merah International Triathlon 2015

All throughout last week I was searching through cyber-space for my past blog entry which told the story of my first encounter in Bukit Merah. I know I had taken part in a tri here before, but what distance, which year, I really could not remember, until I finally found it, my blog post entitled … Continue reading »

Desaru 113 International Triathlon 2015

The Desaru 113 triathlon happened earlier this year (June) than it did last year (August), so it definitely doesn’t feel like enough time has passed since we last bundled ourselves into a car and drove many hours down to this little town called Bandar Penawar in Johor. With the memory of last year’s race still … Continue reading »

113K Desaru Triathlon

I am usually pretty rash when it comes to signing up for races. In the sense that I rarely give it much thought. But for this particular race, I think at the back of my head I somehow felt invincible. I had completed the Putrajaya Ironman 70.3 and although it was the most challenging event … Continue reading »

Ironman 70.3 | Putrajaya

Despite feeling antsy all day the day before, I slept like a baby from 10.30 pm till 4.30 am. I woke up feeling pretty good, calm and chilled out. As if it was just another day. I think at this time, the thought of doing a whole 70.3 Ironman has not quite sunk into me. … Continue reading »

Treading on eggshells. Very very sharp ones.

You’ve been getting into all that running. 10k DONE. Move on to 21. Train train train. 21k DONE. Move on to 30. Train train train. And then you realise something. The bottom of your foot is sore. It’s getting more sore each day. No longer can you “run it off”. It stays. And the pain … Continue reading »

The Journey to Fit & Fab

I have had some clients who have been training with me for longer than a year. If you compare the person they are today with the person they were a year ago, the improvements are vast and amazing. But yet, their journey is not complete. There are still milestones they have yet to achieve, and … Continue reading »

Why men, women, kids, seniors and everyone SHOULD run.

Recently I’ve been tagged onto different articles on Facebook which claim that steady state cardio is bad for you, and that running on the treadmill for long durations every day will mess with your metabolic hormone, T3, and that if you’re aiming for weight loss, you should do no cardio at all. It’s interesting to … Continue reading »

The Marathon

Running has always been my favourite game since I was a wee 13 year old. I did my first long distance run (7 km) when I was in Form 1 and found out that I had quite a knack for it. Fast forward to now, 14 years later, I have now completed ten full marathons, … Continue reading »
