Aside from the fact that I've been pretty busy with work, I can't remember a single thing I did the entire month. Must be age catching up with me. I suppose being busy is a good sign, right? More business, more money?
With that said, I've been pretty free this entire week. Work has been easy and I'm actually enjoying the change of pace. Sometimes a little boredom can help soothe the overworked soul.
The Ramadan season is upon us and for once I haven't visited a single Ramadan Bazaar just yet. I'm not planning to this year cos I heard the prices of the food being sold at the bazaar near my place has gone up.
Besides, I'm watching what I eat these days. I'm on a strict diet regime to get in shape to tackle my second marathon in approximately 3 months time and better my personal best timing. I'm signed up for quite a bit of races after the Ramadan month and really need to make sure I'm capable of breezing through them.
I have a race this weekend, a relay race, which is my first relay event ever and I just saw a section of the route which incorporate stairs that lead to heaven and beyond. I'm actually not happy about it cos in my opinion, you don't put stairs in a running event. If this was a trail or some obstacle course run, then it would be fine but not a running event.
Oh well, I can't complain and just have to take one step (no pun intended) at a time and just do my best. All my plans of a quick fast under 5 minute paced run are totally dashed now! Just go with the flow, Nick, go with the flow. All the other runners are going to be running up those stairs too!
