  • 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 […]

  • 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

  • Week 2 in Training

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 […]

  • Week 1 in Fitness

    It’s taken me a long time to get back to running, but I’ve finally managed it. I’m in my second week of running and I’ve already started to see some nice gains. I’m almost 4kg down from my starting weight 2 weeks ago. I also started my low carb diet again. I’m making my own […]
