New running shoes...

I mentioned my heels were hurt after my last half-marathon and I was resting for the past 2 weeks, though I did short distance runs from 2km-5km. It was painful when I did the 5KM run and thus,  I rested for three days after the run over the weekends, as well as taking anti-inflammation meds and applying Voren plus gel, which is an anti-inflammation and painkiller gel. However, seeing that my two running shoes also a bit 'koyak' (damage) and old, I decided to get two new pairs of shoes. 

I still love Asics, after wearing for a while and this time, I decided to go for the Nimbus-17, which I got it with a 50% discount. Not a bad purchase. It was kinda expensive last year and since new models are coming up, I decided to go for the older models. And, it's very comfy with very good cushioning! And that's the reason I love Asics shoes. Before this, I had worn the Kayano-21 and Nimbus-16 series.


My new pair of Asics

Then, a big sports store called Decathlon, which was a French company and kinda popular in Europe, opened an outlet in Singapore. They have almost a complete collections of sports stuffs there which is akin to Ikea in furniture. And, the goods are also affordable. I got the below Kalanji Ekiden Active running shoes for S$45. It also provides good cushioning , though not as good as the above Asics, but it was good enough for my short runs, especially in gym. And, it looks good too. I can wear it while going out. 

Oh, my colleagues brought me for some Korean Chicken peri-peri and we are at Chir Chir Restaurant. 

A salad for us

Some fried chicken that taste like popcorn. It was delicious!

And, a marinated fried chicken, probably more like per-peri. It was nice also.

I don't mind coming back to try other chicken stuffs here. The chicken are so nice that I forgot what so good about that fingers licking fast food... if you know what I mean... *slurp* Have a good long weekend!!

  3. All the fried stuff, don't go back too soon.

    Do they have walking shoes? I never bother about such stuff. I think I need one well-cushioned one - have not been wearing shoes since I retired so when I wore my "leather" ones (PVC actually, leather is too hard for me) for formal occasions, my feet hurt so badly that I could barely walk. :(

    1. I think I like the blue colour more than the green but of course, for me, comfort is the key factor to consider, never mind what colour.

    2. Salad looks good. Are those pineapples or potatoes?

    3. I got a minor sore throat after that ... muahahahah!
      Yes, they do have walking shoes, maybe you can order online. Go to decathlon.sg. A wide range of affordable shoes for you to choose.

      The salad does contains mangoes, no pineapples.

  5. Your shoes are very nice and stylish. The price is worth it and good bargain. I buy shoes like you as I don;t mind dated models when the price is cheaper.

    I always bought sports shoes from "Why Pay More" outlet here. I have so many pairs now and I am not even a runner like you as I know the importance to wear the right comfort shoes to walk or run as it could affect our spine and bone structures. I even wear black colour Reebok shoes to work!

  10. I wonder if I'm too heavy, my Nike Air Max's cushion seems to be not functioning well after few months of jogging lol

  11. Your food makes me drooling and tummy rumbling. Haha.

    Nice color for your shoes.

  12. Oh, yes, I know what you mean by 'finger licking good'. =P The fried chicken looks tasty, btw. *winks*

    Personally, the most important is the color of the shoes and whether I feel comfortable in it. I don't want to be running in a pair of shoes that will leave me in pain afterwards (since I tend to be more on the move this semester). *shrugs*
