CSC Run By the Bay 2013!

motivation
you can do it!

I would like to thank NutriFirst for sponsoring the CSC Run By the Bay. Special help from Doris and Yang from CSC for getting me the tag to run. Fresh air and great running group during the race made this a truly enjoyable one.

Met some great running – a lady who tried her best to follow up despite her gasping for air.

A 60 years old man who is running at a good pace

a petite young lady who i gave up chasing after the 12km mark! She was really quick; she can still have time to do a selfie while running.

Lastly there is this ang mo lady who I met during the last 2km, she told me she would catch up and over take me and she really did catch up in the end and we finished the race together.

Strong is no longer a word that only man can use.

Tape on with my Gasp and Vibram 🙂

Quality is not so bad, slightly stickier than RockTape so when you are trying to peel it off it hurts alitte more. Price is much cheaper but limited design. ($20 a roll)

Run Timing

Immediately after the race there is ice cold 100 plus and banana together with the medal given to you. No queue any way regardless is taking your bag. There is a red bull and milo station there as well. (free milo and red bull) Overall it is worth the trip and i would love to go again!

Despite having a bad ache on my legs due to legs training on a Thursday i am still able to clock a decent timing. Most probably it is due to the highly motivated group of runner who is around and my HIIT training! Next up will be aiming for my 42km standard chartered run! More Hiit to come!

 

 

Review – Vibram Five Fingers – Bikila

–>

My first barefoot shoe, So far this shoe has been with me for quite some time already and i must say the quality of the shoe is really good.
i ran a 42km with it, quite a number of 10km and 20km as well for about 2 years and i am still using it now.
You may find it hard to put on in the beginning, as your toes are not that flexible yet. After a few times it will get better. I used this for Lifting, running even doing strongman training i am using this!

–>

Overall I must say this shoe is really durable and easy to bring around any one who is interested to try barefoot running. Please give it a try!
I would really like to review more barefoot shoes in the future!

Intermittent fasting -Week2- Vascularity

Recently i am really addicted to getting more vascular.

How can you get more veins to show?

  1. high protein low carb diet
  • it will help your body to use more fats as energy instead of using carbs. This is especially helpful is you workout fasted in the morning, working fasted in the morning is said to be able to increase fat burn by 20% more than normal workout timing!
  • shred more fats
    • the main reason why your veins is showing is because your fats is thinning out. you hardly see fat people with veins right.
  • take some Nitric Oxide supplement like arginine product
    • Arginine is a vasodilator. it helps to relax the blood vessel and increase blood flow.
    • http://www.nutrifirst.net/view_products.asp?catid=39&categoryname=NO2-NitricOxide
  • Lift heavy ass weight with proper form
    • if you are lifting heavy with proper form you will be putting the muscle under a more stressful environment in turn tearing more muscle fiber. To recover yourself during workout the body will call more blood to flow to that particular muscle group (the pump). therefore it creates more vascularity.
