Reward after a run ...

I have cut down on my running since early this year after suffering from plantar facittis, or simply heels pain, for almost two years. In fact, my doctor asked me to do a short run once a week only and don't participate in anymore running events till my heels fully recovered. Well, rest did help as the pain went away especially when I never run for 4-5 days but it came back when I started running. However, I still do short runs of 2KM at the treadmill for two times per week and an outdoor run of 5KM weekly. I am actually getting lazy to run after never run for more than 5KM except the half-marathon which I did in last April. Thus, the 5KM run did at least push me to run and catch some fresh air though sometimes I walk a bit and usually, took a breather after the halfway mark of 2.5KM. This is a far cry from those days when I did 10KM-15KM weekly back then! Sigh!

The good thing is after the 5KM weekly run with my friends, we usually rewarded ourselves with some good food nearby. Yes, the calories we burned were quickly compensated back ! LOL.

One of our favourite eateries is Restaurant Ayam Penyet President, located in Sports Hub, Singapore. Besides ayam penyet, they also offered a lot of Indonesian cuisines.

The food is the reward for the 5KM run...LOL. Anyway, I intend to re-train myself again. I miss those running days! :)

  2. I know exactly how you feel when you are forbid to run as much and good as last time. That's why i am very scared of getting injury on my legs. I always take good care of my legs and put that as my priority, so that it won't affect my exercise routine.

    I also plan to run a bit less next year, but I won't stop exercise, I will go swimming, zumba and yoga to keep myself active all the time.

    Best of luck to you .

  3. For us who used to exercise regularly, we'll feel really uncomfortable if we were ask to stop doing it, even for once or twice, hehe!
    I always believe exercise in moderation is good, of course, still need to listen to our body.
    That's why it's important to take good care of ourselves, in Mandarin we call 'bao jian' 保健.

    Hope things get better and better for you!

  7. When you get old like me, you need to walk slowly and not run around like young rabbits. Just sit down on the bench and sip Chinese tea while watching the pretty bunnies running instead. Hee hee!
