  • Couples’ Running Rules

    Image by Interact Dataset Run together if possible. Run at your own pace. Take your music. Never stop and wait. Double back whenever you’re too far apart. Wait for your partner when you finish your run.

  • One Month In Training

    Image via Triathlon Training I started working out about a month ago, when I joined a nearby fitness center. It’s basically the kind of place that I had been looking for, unsuccessfully, for years. It’s one MRT station away, at Xinpu, brand new, and has everything that I need. It’s cheap, because it’s a government […]

  • Nike Tech Fleece Aeroloft Windrunner Jacket Review

    Last October, Nike released the Tech Aeroloft pack for Men and Women, which included this 2-1 reversible tech fleece jacket that combined a down vest with a tech fleece Windrunner jacket. The design was quite striking, but the high retail price ($350 US) made certain that it would hit the Nike Factory Outlets eventually. Women […]

  • Week 4 ~ Week 15 in Training

      I’ve had ups and downs in my training this year, most notably a 2-week period in May where I didn’t workout at all. However, that was a low point. For now, I seem to be able to workout at least 4 times a week.

  • Week 2 & 3 In Training

    The weather is finally getting better, and I’m feeling quite good when it comes time to run. Instead of going for more runs, I’ve upped the mileage. It’s just because of my lack of organization. I’m going to try a few different things next week, so I should be able to go out for 4 […]

  • First Week Back In Training

    It’s been a while since I last went on training runs. Last year, I lost quite a bit of weight, but had trouble finding the time to train. I had also reached a plateau when it came to weight loss and fitness, meaning that I absolutely needed to run or train in order to lose […]

  • Nike Flyknit Free & Free Hyperfeel Knitted Shoes: Running Shoes That Fit Like a Sock

    When Nike first introduced Flyknit technology, it was pretty amazing. The shoes that featured this tech were super comfortable, and extremely light thanks to the single thread that was knitted to make their shells. Now Nike has introduced Flyknit versions of their Free line of shoes that are made for barefoot runners. Read more @ […]

  • Week 3 in Fitness

    My third week in training started well but midway through, I had some rough nights and the lack of sleep really got to me. I managed to stay on point with the diet and go out for a single 6km run. However, I did cover a total of 25.3km thanks to brisk walks.

  • Week 2 in Training

    This week was pretty good, but marred by an intake of carbs that pushed my weight back up to 93kg. These included bagels and whole wheat bread with raisins and nuts from Costco. Thankfully, with enough diligence and effort, it’s currently at 90.7kg, which is the lowest I’ve weighed in a long time. In hoping […]
