although the upside was I did start at 8 am before the blazing sun was up unlike yesterday's midday run. I think 60-70 minutes is about the longest I would want to run without water in this humidity as dehydration can have a significant effect on your performance. So 70 minutes run time it was today.
Speaking of performance, I highly recommend a good massage as often as you can afford it - time wise and cost wise. Massage is great to stretch out those tired muscles and some well deserved relaxation. When I am home in NZ I am lucky enough to enjoy the benefits of having a mother who is a great masseuse and has her own clinic at home. Fortunately for me whilst I am in Singapore, there is a wonderful new massage clinic less than 5 minutes walk from the front door. Nimble and Knead. They do an amazing massage and I usually book it for 90 minutes - absolute bliss.
The fascinating thing about Singapore is the 'packages' that every nail salon and massage clinic offer to ensure your repeat business. For about $500 upfront you can secure yourself some great deals - the more you pay upfront the better the deal. Needless to say I do get caught up in the hype and I have a package at Nimble and Knead.
So with all the running I have been doing I thought that today was a good day to head down and enjoy a massage. They start with a foot bath soaking your feet in warm water, limes and then a foot scrub....
Then its on to the table for an amazing massage.
What an amazing way to spend a Sunday afternoon - and all going well I am now ready for another week of training :)
