Precautions

It's getting scarrier to see what's on the news lately. Casualties here and there, relating to the influenza A H1N1 virus.

With that, I've decided not to go to any public swimming pools for the time being. Fortunately it's now the off-season period (from any triathlon events), so skipping a few swimming workouts hopefully won't do any harm to the muscles 'memory'. And putting the risk of H1N1 as the main reason for not swimming at public pools, would not leave me with a deep feeling of guilt.

I've been wanting to do one or two swims in a week, just to maintain the stamina and endurance fitness. But, perhaps I should take it as an opportunity to spend more time on the tarmac instead.

So, let us all be more on the cautious side line, and not risk ourselves with the influenza virus.

Yesterday morning, I saw this hand drawing of a scenery of trees, mountains, house and a sun rise being drawn on the dew covered back sreen of my car. Might be drawn by the neighbouring 9 ~ 10 years old kids, or might be by my 30++ years old housemates! Ahahaha. Anyway, it made my day!

Forget gym Nik. waste of money. Just buy dumb bells and do strength training in the park or at home. You can do full body workout without using weights. Ask Ian for (free) advice. Hehehe

Syah - I heard the same thing too. There was a death in South America that the girl tak demam pun ....






*ehem*, did someone say free advice? :) ..... apa salahnya. I'm not so much of a gym person too. I did mostly calisthenics i.e. using own bodyweight. Pushups (wide, narrow, normal grips) are excellent Chest (primary) and tricep (secondary) workouts. Try Squats and Lunges too - 15 reps, 3sets enuf to give you the right intensity. Syah is a master-graduate, he's good!
p/s - nanti kita tunjuk free kat park yer .......

"Syah... ooooo Syah... Where aaarreee yyooouuuuuu....???"

Nik, entah2 some otherworldly beings yang lukis! hiii hiii hiii... Neway, I've frozen my gym membership too, waste of money when I'm not inspired to go. And the H1N1 is getting wayyyyy out of control, I've to the the hospital everyday now...takut betul but I have no choice. Tawakkal aje.

Haza,
It's confirmed. My 30++ years old housemate drew that...
