At 6 am its still dark here in Singapore - so every morning all year round I head off in the dark - the good thing about it being dark is that the blazing sun isn't up yet - although at 6 am it was still 27 degrees with high humidity.
As I had missed my run yesterday I thought I had better make up for it and run for an hour - its only about 14 weeks until the marathon and I should really be able to run comfortably for about 90 minutes when the real training starts on the 1st September - 12 weeks out from the Race Day.
My run took me along the river and back through the Tiong Bahru Park - I took a few photos to show you the sights....It's amazing to see so many people up and exercising so early in the morning.....
Here is one group of people working out - there are pockets of groups like this all over the park.
Here is the path that takes me through the park - it really is pretty in the morning.
Anyway, whilst out for my morning run enjoying the sights I was reflecting on the diet debate - Mikki (nutritionist) has suggested I only eat food that hasn't been processed until I see her in a few weeks and not to mix the Dukan diet and LCHF as I am likely to pick the foods from each diet that I like the most and avoid those I don't like as much - you know me so well Mikki :). So there are a few foods that I will remove altogether and just try eating 'real' food and see what happens. I will keep you posted.
After I finished my hours run I arrived home, had a good stretch and then enjoyed replacing all the fluid lost from training in the humidity - I have been using Nuun tablets to replace the salt.
