This coming 9 am, 4th Aug (Women’s Triathlon) and 11:30am 7th August (Men’s Triathlon) Countries from all over the world will be racing for Gold, Silver and Bronze in the triathlon event. It is going to be a fast paced race with all the accomplished athletes racing for their country.
Just FYI: There are no heats in the Triathlon; both the men’s and women’s events consist of a single race. So who will you be rooting for ? My Take will be New Zealand for Gold, GBR for Silver and US of A for bronze for the mens race. Agreed?
As host nation.. I will post their competing athletes here
And here are the round up for (more…)

Well not what you were thinking, I wouldn’t wanna fart when I am running, well at least I try not to, I know I have did in my tri events (SWIMMING) and I bet the guy behind me sure smelled some good nutritional muesli and fruits that I had for breakfast before the event, Well If you are having a case of Monday Blues and this made you smile, do like the post ok.. at the bottom
At least I know I made you smile, anyway if you didnt know what a Fartlek is as explained by Wikipedia
Fartlek, which means “speed play” in Swedish, is a training method that blends continuous training with interval training. The variable intensity and continuous nature of the exercise places stress on both the aerobic and anaerobic systems. It differs from traditional interval training in that it is unstructured; intensity and/or speed can be varied whenever the athlete wishes
So how do one do a Fartlek , and since this is a Runnersworld poster, let me share the article with you here, (how to Fartlek by Jeff Galloway)
for me If you want to lose weight fast, this has got to be one of the best exercise you can do besides HIIT, which I will explain in another blog post, Fartlek can be done anytime, anywhere. I love doing fartlek but its really tough and I dont think I can do it, I will just do my Ironman or rather Triathlon. Have a Good Monday Peeps.
Its the weekend, I know lots of you are doing training, and if you are one like me who trains long and hard for the weekend then think of this…
Seriously I think of a large steak when I am running my 26.2 aka 42k marathon, Don’t that happen just to about everyone ? Ice cold coke, fat juicy burger, pizzas etc..etc.. any fattening food that you just can think of. I have thought of it all when running half way through my races.
This items are usually my motivation when I run my races, everytime I tell myself I am gonna go get myself a big fat steak for my post race, but I never do it, why? cause I am fat enough and I dont think I can afford a fat juicy steak, yes the intensity of my workout maybe be as high as burning 3500cal a day but that does not mean I can just gorge myself silly with fatty food. #Eat Clean and reward yourself with some nice grilled salmon.
Speaking of motivational posters , here is this weeks RW motivational poster which is inline with my post today. I know you think of food as I do while running your races yes? no ? don’t deny.. :P (muffin? soda? McDonald?)
This girl wants pancakes, I wont mind making her some after..
Ok seriously I would make her pancakes..
All you runners out there, we are all not bullet proof, we are all not made of special Adamantiun like Wolverine.. and you bet your arse that we will be injured one day. I have been lucky to date as the only running injury that I had was shin splits cause of my over training, Stupid me.. cramping runs after runs everyday just for an upcoming race.
I know people take supplement when they have problems, but aren’t you suppose to take supplements EVEN before you have injuries? I recommend glucosamine for your joints, well I do take them to prevent injuries (not taking chance)
So far there are (more…)
(Article and review by Isaac L.)
Oakley says "YOUR MOVE, MOTHER NATURE" and you wonder why? I recently acquired the Radarlock from Oakley and I have tested out the latest technology of its so called switchlock. Radar is not a new kid on the block and has been around for years, but this time it has been redesigned with you guys in mind.
What time does your body clock say?
If you’re a busy mom – or anyone who achieves a lot – you may be used to pushing yourself hard, even through periods of exhaustion. You may know that you’re a high energy person in the morning or a super-efficient night owl. If you feel your energy change the day, you may assume it’s because you couldn’t sleep, you’re working too hard, or your blood sugar is low. And those factors may indeed be at play.
But there’s another reason, called your circadian rhythm. And if you’re not tuned in to this natural body rhythm – or those of the people around you – it’s time to put this idea to work. For example, if you’re a parent, you may know that kids tend to melt down in the late afternoon. If you know there is a biological reason for that, you can plan around it.
All living things have a built-in 24-hour pattern of activity. Working off cues such as light or the timing of meals, this rhythm regulates everything in our body, from when hormones peak and we feel sleepy to how high our blood pressure is — even the time of day we have the most muscle strength.
But there’s more… Ever wonder how you can feel sleepy, but it eventually passes and you feel more energized? Within our circadian rhythm, we also have predictable 90- to 120-minute energy cycles, from sleepy to alertness.
How to rock around your clock
1. Map your energy rhythms. Observe how you feel throughout the day and note your personal peaks and valleys. (A shot of E6 can help you move through the lows, because let’s face it, the world can’t always wait!)
2. Plan your challenges: If you know you’re a morning person, put your heavy-lifting tasks at the top of your day. Schedule breaks for when you know your energy is low. You can even plan meetings at work or activities with kids around natural body rhythms — and make things timelier for everybody.
Its a common thing where people down energy drinks to get that extra lift, for me I have tried countless from Monster, Rockstar, Wired, Tilt and the infamous Redbull, I have even tried funkier one’s in Japan , really not sure what I drank but it sure tasted funny, usually all the servings of this energy drinks are in 12oz sized and it fills me up pretty much. What if i told you, that you can also energized yourself with only 2oz instead. sounds abit dubious ? read on..
This new brand called Take5 caught my eye and it was in packaged in this little tiny 2oz bottle, at first I thought it was for some eye wash or something when I was shopping in the mall. Not sure if you have seen it but this is the picture of that cute little tiny bottle that they sell in store. I got a couple of em to try as it said Brain power and the other Immunity.
Alot of research apparently was done to this little drink, would you believe it if I tell you that it will improve you immunity and you dont have to frequent the doctor as often anymore? dont believe me ? download the research paper BREAKING NEWS TAKE5IVE AJCN-1 , so now you believe me ?
This little energy drink
- Works instantly
- gives you 5.5hours of energy (don’t know how they time that exactly)
- maintain mental focus and clarity
- Support Vital Brain functions
- NO SUGAR
I didn’t only tried it on myself but got my buddy Jason to tried it as well, He had a sleepless night before and he had to drive about 400km back to Malaysia, so I (more…)

This one is for you Apple Fan boy who love’s running, bet I can see you smirking right now at the sight of iPod Dies.
I love running with my music blasting out techno beats and I pound the street as if it was the dance floor, no one will stop you dancing, no one will get you high like a runners high, none of those stupid club drugs, I get drunk on Gatorade, none of those alcohol that will end your life. I inhale fresh air unlike the smoke in that joint.
So best of all go get fit #Fitness4Life
I did my final paper about “No Smoking Campaign” back in the years when I was studying for PR degree, I wanted to write something that was close to my heart, and boy did I went ballistic with the stats and numbers, I went all over government bodies, NGO and smokers/ non smokers the whole lot I tell you.
All I can say is that smokers are winning the war (Sigh) and people are just not worried about the effect of smoking and their health. I really hope that I can make a change in people’s life, no matter how slow it is but its at least one cigarette at a time,
Thankfully I come from a family that do not smoke and are very much a sports loving background family. Mom was a sprinter for her school days, Dad was a tennis player and manages the State tournament Tennis events previously, my two sister were school representative for tennis and softball in their own division. I was playing tennis for my club division and I was a state cyclist. So I am pretty proud that we don’t smoke and are all pretty healthy
I hope people will change and I do believe that doing sports will curb your addiction to smoking, If you are a smoker, I totally respect your choice , but do you think its beneficial? gain anything?
Gonna share with you this advert that (more…)
Don’t take your health to seriously ? well sometimes you need to because its good for you.. If you wanna lose weight, simple, just watch what you eat, if you want to look good, get fit. Fitness and watching what you eat is truly a great combination. I believe in it 100%
Think those diet pill and slimming centre is going to help you? I don’t think so, in fact it might do more harm. Yeah I know the magazine articles telling you that this and that diet product works and everything, or even maybe this and that fitness product to cut your tummy or tight is a miracle worker,
The only way I feel to lose weight and ensure it stays off is LIFESTYLE Change .. be discipline and you will be rewarded with renewed energy!
Well fitness can’t be all that boring, check this advert by Thai Health promotion, its super hilarious ! bet you gonna love it too
tell yourself this, you sure didn’t put those pound on in a week, HELL you are not going to take it off in a week also.
At the Olympic level, where cyclists are in roughly the same physical condition, the difference between victory and defeat often boils down to a bike’s aerodynamics. The more smoothly air flows over a frame and rider, the less wind resistance he will feel and the faster he’ll go. Engineers at Cervélo used aerospace-grade computational fluid dynamics software and virtual wind-tunnel tests to design the P5, the most aerodynamic bike ever.
With the software, the team at Cervélo designed, rendered and wind-tunnel-tested dozens of P5 prototypes, before ever constructing a physical model. They identified and refined drag-causing areas. For example, they lowered the handlebars and added internal hydraulic brake cables. They also created a tapered rear edge on the seat post, which reduces turbulence off the rider’s backside, allowing air to flow more fluidly around him. The changes translate to 75 grams less drag than on the P5’s predecessor, a reduction that could result in gains of 1.6 seconds per mile—and a gold-medal run in the 44-kilometer Olympic time trial.

This weekend was a crazy weekend, Fast Cars was drifting legally in Singapore and it can only be the Formula Drift Singapore 2012 by Achilles, Last week I gave out tickets to the movie premiere of Motorway in-conjunction with this event. Marcus was one lucky dude and he was so nice to bring his dad to the movies. That’s him with Ken Gushi and his dad (in checkered shirt)
Seriously I never knew that there was such a big following in Singapore, and I was amazed with the turn out, despite the weather which was HOT HOT HOT, I think my face got burned but the hottest thing that eclipse the heat are the cars and racers themselves.
The event was a success and I truly enjoyed the screeching tires and the (more…)
