My runs can be counted with the fingers on one hand since my last race on the 16th April 2011. Since then I only did some easy body weight workout plus some stretching so that not to exaggerate my knee injury. Apart from that, busy with the renovation and moving into a new house gave me some excuse from pounding the road or trail since then.
If it was few years back, I would keep on running even if it is just for 15 minutes but getting injured again and again from running or playing other sports had make me more patient, and this time I took time chilling off with the hope to build everything from scratch and to stay injury free as long as possible.
The last two weekends I had been pounding the FRIM trail again and really glad that I can go down the hill running cautiously without my knee guard although the uphill is a totally different story as I need to build up the endurance again from roughly three month of not running at all.
I am trying a new routine which will includes weight training twice a week and maybe a little bit time spending on the stationery bike and dipping in the pool at my apartment's gym and pool to give the legs more rest while building up the mileage again. Got to fully utilised the facilities. :)
Selamat berpuasa to all my Muslim friends. Till the next blog.... which I do not know when... kehkehkeh! :p
Enjoy the random shots taken during my run at Frim last Saturday......
