It's Monday morning and I'm suffering from the consequences of inadequate training. Yes, I have to admit I was too ambitious to take on a 15k run in the competitive category of the Saucony Passion Run yesterday. Unlike my running buddies who had been training hard for the Sundown Marathon just a week ago, I had been slacking off like a sack of potatoes.
While the run was a breeze for them, it was a pretty gruelling one for me. My legs were heavy like lead, my knees felt inflammed and the run seemed to go on forever! They were sore during and after the run.
After the run, I rushed home to send SK for his Chinese tuition, then walked to the mall to order a new fridge for the new house. The timing was perfect! As part of the Great Singapore Sale, I enjoyed another $100 discount. Plus, I received a FREE vacuum cleaner, foldable bicycle and $40 shopping vouchers from Isetan!
I never knew shopping can be so rewarding. And exciting too. This morning, I was quivering with excitement because I was taking part in the Standard chartered Bank credit card promotion. The first 50 cardmembers (who spent $XX amount within a certain period) who smsed to the bank (from 9am to 6am today) will be able to redeem a 40" Sony LCD Bravia TV.
Now, I don't believe in lucky draws but this time, I really should try my luck. I could save a bundle if I could redeem a TV. So I watched the clock like a hawk and even set an alarm to go off at 8am (well, it didn't). At 9am sharp, I sent out the sms. Just in case it didn't go through for whatever reasons, I sent another one at 9.02am. I really want that TV!
I wish myself good luck!
