Below are the stats from the day of my previous post when I took the photo of the silly monkeys at the entrance of Tasek Lama. I mostly go to Tasek to have a little relaxed walk on the short trail with my friends, which is why I need to get my run done and out of the way beforehand. Yes, I go for a run AND THEN go for a little “exercise session” with my friends immediately after. It makes sense because my friends wouldn’t run with me (hopefully just for now), yet I still want to join in on their fitness activities too regardless. I suppose it does bum me out quite a bit that I still don’t have a running buddy but, such is life! I still cling on to the hope that they would one day decide to join me, though. The good thing about this whole arrangement is that when I push myself hard on the pre-meet up run, the short trail walk actually is quite the challenge. Mentally and physically. I huff and puff the whole way even when we take it easy on the hike.
I admit it – I absolutely love the torture! I’m totally set on the mantra that if it’s not a challenge, the cheque won’t cash (or maybe it will cash, but you’d be caught short). Hence, why. I wonder what people generally feel about this mantra. Is it being too harsh on oneself?
Anyway, time for stats!
