Why 5am Training and Lack of Sleep Don't Mix

Did an 18km run yesterday at 5am from Sengkang to Orchid Country Club and back. A record 20+ trifamers turned up at that crazy time to do an LSD.

Gee whiz, but I didn't sleep well the night before. I think I had only 3.5 hours of sleep.

And now I have the flu. My body decided to protest against my sanity.

Therefore it is important to Hydrate, have Sufficient Sleep, Eat Properly the day before any training.

Or else suffer the consequences.

What's In A Name?

A few days ago, I sent my parents off at the airport and we saw a directional sign that said "LOW COST TERMINAL".

Of course, for the well-initiated, this was the low-cost carrier airport terminal - or some would call it "The Budget Airline Terminal".

We were pondering over the "Low Cost Terminal" terminology. It sounds very cheapskate and the unintiated might have visions of a very cheap thatched-roof kind of structure. It's something that is rather un-modern-Singapore.

"Low Cost Terminal" - somehow it exudes a caste-like discrimination.

But seriously, why can't the authorities call it "Budget Airline Terminal"?

Emergency G.A.W.K Review

I admit. I'm not disciplined enough to do the G.A.W.K. I think it is quite sedentary and boring. Maybe I feel lazy and I just feel the need to get out and run or swim.

Excuses, excuses, excuses.

But I need to work on my abs.


Perhaps I should target a more realistic number.... say 60 a day for a month?

Alright... I'll do 60 a day for a month.

G.A.W.K II starts today!
