"Body ache.."

That's what I got after my first day of training for the marathon..haha..




Did some warming-up first :








After about 45 minutes of warm-ups and walking around some areas, I decided to try jogging and chose this stretch to run to and fro...




and I lasted about 7 minutes and 50 meters before I was gasping for breath...hahaha..how unfit I was!


One of the "joggers' " lanes...where I came across one elderly man who looked fit and ran fast...and smiling at the same time! :-D





I didn't continuously did the exercises as I took time to take few photos of the surroundings using my hand phone as well....













Hope that on my next attempt I'd be able to run further than today...AND hopefully would shed some kgs as my mother said the other day that I'd gained weight (lots of it!)...hehehe.

    At least you can still run!! You just need some exercise!! Somehow my knees hurt when I run, but I do not have problems with walking, I wonder why???

    1. Hi Betsy,

      hehehe...I used to exercise more before (or be on diet) whenever my hometown trips were due, back when the gaps between the trips were few months..but nowdays its almost every month that I pop up at mum's that i don't have time to "control"..haha.

      but its okay..its one of her ways of loving me..and I normally laugh it off anyway.

      Thanks for dropping by and leave your mark here.

      :-)

  3. I for one am glad you took time from your training to take pictures. I know it is hard to get stated, but I am glad you are warming up before you start running. Keep up the good work.

    1. errr...I shouldn't have said "marathon"..that's the event organised by an established bank.

      but I'm "running for a cause"..registered for a 5-km run only..and so far I've yet to run 100 metres..haha..

  6. Bagusnya.. dah start praktis untuk marathon.. goodluck!! anyway first try memang selalunya senakk.. berdasarkan pengalaman sendiri.. hahaha..

    psstt cheqna.. dulu masa nak panjat gunung kinabalu.. saya pun senak perut dan susah nak bernafas, siap nak pitam lagi.. itu baru 200meter je mendaki(hehehe kelakar).. sebabnya terikut tempo kawan yang lebih fit dan sebab saya perasan saya fit jugak (hehehe)..

    sudahnya saya daki ikut tempo sendiri sambil2 amik gambar.. berehat pun kejap2 dan tak lebih dari 5 minit.. sebab guide kitaorang marah.. katanya kalau berehat lama2 badan akan lebih cepat penat..

    apa2 pun yang penting minda kena sentiasa positif untuk tamatkan setiap perlumbaan.. biar lambat/tak menang asal tamat..
