Mizuno Shopping Loot of the Day

Some of you all heard from the little bird (Twitter) that I am down with a bad fever, it’s been a week (ok exaggerating) but since Tuesday. are fever even suppose to last that long?

Well first thing after work I was suppose to head out for a short run but clearly that didn’t happened. I was knocked out straight after work and slept with a burning body covered with blanket and air-con turned on. What do people do to even kill fever instantly, hoping to recover with a lot of rest, that also clearly didnt happen, yesterday was the worst and I woke up at 2am with a heavy feeling over my chest,

So if you guys have any remedies that can cure a fever, I am willing to try it out?

I said before, usually I don’t fall sick but when I do, I get it bad, real bad, but hey once a year don’t sound all that bad, Anyway I wanna share with you guys the shopping loot I got from my sponsors Mizuno (World Of Sports) , I’ve posted the video up a week back maybe some of you guys have watch it some of you have not, It was the last video I made two weeks ago and I haven’t found the time to train or recover.

I have to say I have already tried all of the gears I have got and I really liked the Ekiden Tshirt that I got, I heard last from ZJ that he went out and bought one for a price of $27 after discount, now that’s a bargain

Tomorrow I will try to make it to the Orange Ribbon run, and the Yellow Ribbon Race Pack Collection If I could.

TICKR X by Wahoo

TICKR X analyzes body motion and impact shocks to improve any athlete’s form and efficiency – and more

Wahoo Fitness, the leader in fitness apps and products that take advantage of the power of smartphones, has introduced the ultimate workout tracker that captures both motion and intensity with a memory overview in Singapore. Called the TICKR X, Wahoo’s new heart rate monitor pairs seamlessly with iOS and Android smartphones and other fitness devices.

Similar to its predecessor models TICKR and TICKR Run, TICKR X tracks heart rate and calories burned in real-time and provides data on stride rate. TICKR X measures runners’ vertical oscillation and ground contact time, which gives any runner a 360o perspective on their running form and what can be improved to achieve a higher efficiency. In case of rainy days or when you’re simply lazy to head outdoors, TICKR X also features a Treadmill Mode for capturing speed and distance data from treadmill workouts, and is also able to measure indoor cycling cadence (i.e. pedaling rate).

What sets the TICKR X apart from its TICKR and TICKR Run is its built-in memory, motion analytics, rapid double tap control and vibration alerts. The built-in memory, in particular, is a key feature of the TICKR X. With it, you are able to record up to 16 hours of key workout data to auto-sync with the Wahoo Fitness app on your phone later, which is perfect for activities where you can’t have your phone on hand, such as during swimming, or even for times you want to head out for a phone-free run. One may also simply use TICKR X as their heart rate monitor and pair it with any other app or device.

On the other hand, the rapid double tap control function allows the user to add markers for specific points throughout their workout. It also allows users to control app functions such as music playback and laps when TICKR X is connected to the user’s phone.

Enabled by ANT+ and BLE (‘Bluetooth Low Energy’) technology, TICKR X easily connects with a range of smartphones and GPS watches wirelessly via Bluetooth. TICKR X can also be paired with over 50 of the most popular fitness apps including Runkeeper, Strava, MapMyFitness and Cyclemeter/Runmeter to help runners meet their goals.

TICKR X also works with Wahoo Fitness’ other line of products – KICKR, a smart, connected cycling trainer designed around heavy, high-intertia flywheels which are engineered to provide an ultra realistic road feel. Using TICKR X with KICKR would allow indoor cycling enthusiasts to have a realistic and power-accurate virtual training experience, with key workout data fully recorded. KICKR is currently available in Singapore for SGD$1945 at specific bike retailers. For more information on KICKR, please contact their local distributer, Leader Radio Technologies.

CaptureI sure am looking forward to running this run, because it is my first run with the Orange Ribbon association and I am honored for them to have me as their Running Social Media Ambassador, this is one event I strongly encourage because to me RACISM should not even exist, Whats even the opposite of Racism, Why do people look down on others simple just because he is of another ethnicity. Live Together, Live a life without Racism. Racism have no benefits so why bother with it.

Am glad that Singapore is a country that does not tolerate racism, in the most recent event, there was this guy mocking and making a scene in McDonalds in Jurong, Police is already looking into the matter. The efficiency and no tolerance makes this country great.

Spartan Race Registration Filling Up

Back in 2013  there was only one race which needed athlete to maneuver up and under inside and out over obstacle carefully chosen by the people of Men’s Heath and that is the Men’s health urbanathlon, but if you are talking about the mother of all obstacle this would be it, they even deemed it as “The World Best Obstacle Race”

If you have not heard of the Spartan Race it is not your average race! While you are certainly familiar with everyday run-of-the-mill running races, the Spartan Race is like their adventurous, adrenaline-junkie friend who thrives on excitement.

Not only will you be running, climbing, and crawling across unknown terrain, but you’ll also get to splash through mud, tackle many unique and challenging obstacles, test your overall strength, balance, mental tenacity and endurance, and finish with a fiery leap of victory!

Spartan race comes in 3 different such as

  1. Race the Sprint: 5+ kilometres, 15+ obstacles
  2. Conquer the Super: 13+ kilometres, 20+ obstacles
  3. Dominate the Beast: 20+ kilometres, 25+ obstacles

but in Singapore and Malaysia we only get the Sprint category, I understand that Spartan race has a membership fee where it allows you to race around the globe with just one pass, but let’s leave that for another day.

Malaysia get to taste first blood this coming 10 October while Singapore has to wait till 15 November for their run at the course.

So if this information leaves much to be desire you may want to take a look at the Korea Hongcheon Spartan 2014 race for a better idea of what you will be expecting.

If you think you are Spartan enough, or want something tougher than the Men’s Health Urbanathlon, sign up for the Spartan Race Singapore here Singapore Spartan Registration

Malaysia is fast filling up at 90% as of current date and for registration you can click on Malaysia Spartan Registration

Aroo, Aroo….
