My weekly runs...

If you are my facebook friend, you will noticed I usually posted my wefie with my colleagues once a week in our running attire. Well, I used to play badminton weekly after work and I have been doing that for the past eight years. However, since players are getting 'depleted' where some have left the company and no new players joining in, we decided to call it a day. It can be frustrating to have two or three players coming to play though we still love the game very much. Anyway, I might join another group later as I still love the game very much.

Thus, I decided to join another group of colleagues weekly to do some running at the East Coast Park. It was a nice place to run as it's windy by the beach  as well as the running path is wide and long and lots of gorgeous young ladies folks were here to train for marathons or just leisure run. It connected all the way from Changi to Tanjung Rhu and then, Gardens by the Bay. Thus, I can run a marathon here ...hahaha... In fact, I ran my Sundown Half Marathon here last year! And, yes,  I got a half marathon in early April and May, and I have already started my humble training.


The running and cycling path

Panoramic view of the sea , facing Indonesia

Another running path , it was quiet then. 

Almost sunset ... nice to run with a beautiful view

Due to time consuming as most of my colleagues have families , usually we will do 5KM (and they are fast, at a pace of 5 minutes+ which left me last or second last!)  but sometimes I thought of doing longer runs like 10km - 15km. I am still checking out if there's any locker services there to keep my stuffs. There are shower facilities as well as good food all over the place, so no problem for my dinner. And, lots of cabs to ferry me back too, after a tiring run. For now, I do 5KM first la with my colleagues.

Oh.. I can't help having another nasi lemak chicken rendang and I am back to Tea Garden in JB last Sunday for the fix. I really love the chicken rendang, it's really tasty! 


Weekend is around the corner, have a good rest! :)

  1. This is on reclaimed land - used to be the sea and my friends and I would go swimming there way back in 1973.

    Nice-looking nasi lemak...except for the egg. They do not fry it well plus the egg in standard nasi lemak should be hardboiled. Oh? This is in JB, eh? The so-called "Singapore nasi lemak" I had here, the fried egg was also disappointing.

  3. That is a beautiful route to run...imagine running by the seaside! :)

    No such thing here in KL, it's all city scapes but I've seen people running on the roads when I drive out in the morning. I've always thought it's a bit dangerous to run on roads especially in a busy city though.

  13. It is the right timing to prepare for the April/May run. Me too, preparing for my July run now. Hahaha! In fact, I never stop running. But my ankle started a week ago, seems like I need to run a bit slower to let it heals first.

  16. I love these areas of East Coast and Marine Parade areas! It looks a bit like California but not the ocean.
