day 1875 – treadmill intervals

spent my off day from flipping for a rare cardio moment because i simply can’t find a way to appreciate it. i don’t think i’ve been on a treadmill for more than five minutes since i last did the sunrun. by the end of it, i was dropping with sweat. my lower body is so taxed from my regular activities i need not to do more leg work even more on my off days. the rest of the time was for core, stretching and rolling

day 1859 – golden ears park

i needed all the rest i could get the day after doing a massive unplanned hike of over eight hours. what was suppose to be an easy nine kilometre hike turned into an off route, stream crossing hike of over twenty five. a day where i amassed forty one thousand steps is by far the highest my fitbit ever registered. i don’t want to move for anything or anyone, and pretty much stayed stationary most of the day

day 1751 – ultimate sub

it’s been a few years since a last played ultimate, but here i am subbing a double header. so much running and cardio involved in this sport; reminds me why it’s not my top pick. by the end of the two games, i had taken over seven thousand steps. i guess i wasn’t as tired as i would’ve been if it wasn’t for all that sunrun training. it took half the first game to get my lingo back and after i settled in, it turns out to be lots of fun 

day 1726 – sun run fun

it was a gutsy decision to continue with the run, but i’m stubborn that way. i’m glad i put my third sun run in the books with my best run time yet. the near one hour mark was good for second with my company, only to be ousted by a forty-two minute avid runner. couldn’t have asked for a better weather as it was perfect when i began to rack up my steps. running with someone makes me stay motivated to continue pushing forward. no recovery time allowed since i had to work a belt test hours later covering the ten kilometres. now it’s time to hit up my physio so he can fix my knees and get it back to being functional

solo series [day six]

i got a full eight hours of sleep last night, best i’ve slept since arriving. that works in my favour because i am well rested for my hike today. met up with my friend and two of her friends to do my first ever hong kong hike at tai mo shan that began in tsuen wan west. transiting to the base took over an hour and the hike took a total of three and a half hours. the trail wasn’t extremely difficult but it had dangerous sections. it was pretty good experience minus all the bites despite spraying on a lot of bug repellent. i am all tired out from the long hike, one ankle is swollen, as i expected

another highlight of the day, and another must-do thing on my list, was having taste tested the special mcdonalds pulled pork burger and successfully finishing it myself. it tasted good but i felt like a fatty with it inside my stomach

tomorrow will be my final full day in hong kong. i have set aside the morning to see my fanling grandma once more before i leave. i should also double check to see if i have completed the hong kong portion of shopping list
