Still running

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.

Maybe you can run on the school track while waiting for him.
