Ran the Sundown Marathon 2011 last Saturday night and came back in 5:52 (although I checked the official website earlier today and my chip time turned out to be 5:49:55 which means I took 3 minutes to cross the starting line....not too bad!) and survived a traumatic, sleep-depriving run.
Absolutely fatigued on Sunday....so much so that I overslept and missed my flight back.
In the end I had to contribute to the financial growth of Air Asia by purchasing a last minute flight ticket back to KL, on a later flight.
It would have been hilarious except that my bank account doesn't quite see the funny side of it.
Headed back to Ipoh on Monday to clear my stuff at my Ipoh house and realized that besides being manic-depressive on some days...I also have a serious problem of hoarding.
Yup...I've a huge ton of clutter that took 2 hours to clear....and that was only my room!
And to think I've got rid of another huge chunk of clutter a year ago when I moved into my current room in Ipoh!!!
I really have to consider downsizing my "stuff" and learn to either not buy/accumulate junk or learn to throw them out when clutter size grew too large for comfort.
(honestly, I suck at either option...sigh)
Today I finally got to sleep in and do absolutely NOTHING (which was such a treat).
Also, I've been reading this absolutely AWESOME book entitled "The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted" (yea yea yea, feel free to roll those eyes of yours), and despite my insistence of a high protein diet for MYSELF, I do agree with a lot of things being stated in this book. And I really like it that they are quoting studies and researches to back up their claim......
Yes....go read it.
The vegetarians will rejoice.
The meat eaters will sulk.
The dairy lovers will get depress.
But remember.....the results are statistically significant!!
Oh....tomorrow I'll start my masters program at UMMC (in case you're wondering, it stands for University Malaya Medical Center) and it'll be orientation day.
The day has finally arrived.
Anyway I'll post about the Sundown Marathon soon enough.....
It wasn't that exciting that it should demand an instant blog post.
