I never quite understand it when someone is very much into data from working out. “Data junkie”, as I called it. It is only recently that I turned into a data junkie myself that I now know why working out and reviewing all the data later on is so satisfying. I for one is not into my pace or time when it comes to running but data? I like! What if i tell you that there is a fitness wristband that is able to provide you with so much more than just data from your workout but also data on your lifestyle routine? Introducing the new Fitbit Flex 2.
#IWillBeOkay ‘Fight Against Depression’ Awareness Campaign is entering its third campaign and thanks to everyone’s support and feedback, I am finally going to have an event. As requested by you 🙂 .
#IWillBeOkay Trail Hike is the first and probably the only event I am going to held for 2017, however the campaign, the awareness initiatives and fundraising will still continues with the usual online engagements. The reason why I wanted to have an actual event is because I want everyone who is battling with depression to know that you have the ability to get better and that you are not alone. I find sweaty, mind and physically challenging event like running, HIIT, hiking etc helped me tremendously. And so I want you to have or at least try the same experience as I had. It will be a morning of activities, fun and also to talk more on why engaging activities like this is important for those who are suffering from depression.
There are a lot of factors involved as to why I stop registering myself to a running event, such as location and parking. Now, this Symphony Life That ‘70s Run is a different story. It may seems a little bit too far for most of my friends (hehe!) but for me, this event is just 20 minutes away from my house. Like finally! A running event so near me! The run was held at BizWalk, Taman Tasik Prima, Puchong. The parking spaces are ample! I usually reach minimum an hour early to secure myself a parking space. And because the location has a lot of parking space, I parked quite near to the starting line.
If you have been following me on Instagram close enough, you will know that I am pretty much into Metafit Bodyweight HIIT training now. I used to do every other workout as a part of cross-training but now Metafit has become my main workout besides sprinting and running. Just so you are not confused, I am very much into running for the past one year plus. I slowed down a lot on running as I find it to be a bit too routine for me so I adapted sprinting, and later on sign up for Metafit. Metafit is a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) training, which in my opinion is way way wayyyy better workout for anyone who are into working out the whole body. You sweat a lot, you get sore, you move a lot and you use every single muscle of your body. It is a short workout but an intense one.
I started the whole fitness journey with just running alone. Running is the most simplest workout to start with for a newbie, although I must admit I still hate running and it is not as easy as it seems. When I run, I wear lesser because I can get hot very fast and I sweat a lot (Read: healthy 😛 ). However because I do have shin splints issue since the beginning, I started to wear long pants which has compression in it to help to lessen muscle soreness and to help with recovery.
As running has been in trend over the past few years especially this year, what makes a running event fun to participate? A thematic run such as Symphony Life That ‘70s Run!
Date: 15th January 2017, Sunday
Venue: BizWalk, Taman Tasik Prima, Puchong
Time: 7.30 am
That ’70s Run is a retro-themed run, which everything is retro way back to the 70s. It is even more fun and enjoyable to participate in a thematic run when every particpants come dress up in 70s outfits. Although it is not compulsory but the organizer highly encourage you to do so. Afterall, it is a retro-themed run 😉
Along the 5km route, there will be two dance checkpoints. Participants are required to follow a few simple 70s dance moves by the dance instructors in order to be entitled to the finisher medal. So brush up those moves and bust it out at the run event!
Activities such as mini fest for the participants and public, complimentary health check counters and health related product booths, children activity stations and a variety of food trucks will be setup at the event as well.
All participants will go home with a finisher’s medal, event T-shirt, lucky draw entitlement, freebies, light refreshment and many more. If you are a medal collector, you will be excited with this one. It has glitter effect on it and the center piece is twistable.
Official T-shirt for That ’70s Run is none other than ULTRON. The design is as retro as the medal and yet simple. I like simple running shirt.
