In case you're wondering... I'm still running. I try to run after work everyday for at least 30 minutes. I have rest days too. While I normally run on the treadmill, I decided to run at a nearby park yesterday and what a change that was!
Instead of the cool air-conditioning, I could feel the wind in my face and hear the sound of pounding feet from fellow joggers around me. At one stage, I was running under the MRT track, in sync with the speeding train, only for that few seconds of course. I'm no Wonder Woman you know.
I started sweating profusely very quickly in the humidity but the changing scenery and new route made the workout quite fun and tolerable. I was soaked by the time I covered 4km and decided to head home for dinner.
Maybe it's the heat and sweat, for some reason, I feel that running outdoors provides a better workout (read as: burn more calories) than in the gym. I'm going to do this again. Pity I'll have less time for running because YK will finish school late starting from today.
