RUN FAT BOY RUN!

The air was hot and sticky, the street lights buzzed and cars zipped passed.  I was already full of anticipation living in this foreign country, land, city.  Yep the beautiful city of Singapore.  I have only been here about 2 weeks now and part of the mission training is that we need to run 4 miles every morning (apart from our Monday, day off) at 5am.  Getting up at 5am doesn’t bother me, but I have never been a runner, I wonder how I’ll do?

I tip the scales at 238lbs, and I am 24 years old, and I am thinking will my legs hold? How will my heavy body hold out pounding away on the streets of Singapore, and with all this humidity sucking my energy away.

This was from my diary back in 2002 when I ventured off to Singapore, where I would join a missions team that would later head to Kalimantan (Borneo), Indonesia.  I did start running, and from what I remember it wasn’t easy at the start but I did get better.

At this time I didn’t have the knowledge about exercise and nutrition that I have now, so running the same 4 miles for 4 months gave me very little results in regards to weight loss.

Now, 8 years later and clocking in at a current 256lbs with a dodgy hip, I wanted to have those laser eye beams that superman has when my personal trainer said to me that we’ll start going for a run twice a week :-) LOL

I have been running a week now and I have shaved 4 min & 49 seconds off my time, I am feeling that my endurance has gone up (still along way to go) and I have now got this itch that I can’t shake off, the itch to run!

Now If you ever see me running in the streets you probably wouldn’t think that I am enjoying my self (cross between a cow and a whoopie cushion) but on the inside I am loving the challenge that running is giving me. To push harder, to get further, to dig deeper!

So I am enjoying running…… I just thought that I’d share that with you guys :-)

Hey Andrew,

I have also jogged in Singapore. I used to sat at the old Mandarin Hotel on Orchard Road. They had a shuttle bus to take hotel guests out to the Botanical Gardens. I would run for 40 minutes in the morning before it got too hot. Singapore is a hot and humid place.

I have also jogged in Brunei and have gotten a lot of weird stares from people.

Hi Frank, I lived in Upper Thomson in Singapore so I jogged around there. At 5am it was hot and humid, I can’t imagen what it would be like jogging it in the afternoon.

So how’s your fat attack going?

Take care,
Andrew

I always used to hate running in high school, but now that I work out I do kind of like it. I guess you have to like it if you’re going to stick to it, otherwise you will end up giving up.

You’ve hit the nail on the head there my friend! We also need to give ourselves time with the things that we don’t like and then maybe they will become something that we can cope with, maybe even enjoy one day.

Thanks for visiting, take care,
Andrew
