greeted by the sight of different jcs' badminton people at different corners of the hall the moment of entrance. the jcs of interest: mainly rj and acj... if guys could be called leggy too, ac guys (sportsmen) are almost always that... woo-hoo i'm a se4 lang2! and not feeling particularly guilty either. *grinz* spotted a lone vj girl... nothing more... just plenty of dhs kids... sigh. somebody please please please tell me when they train there?! i'm in serious need of some eye-candy (my type) to spice up my dreary life.
failed to locate any of my two stopwatches at home, so couldn't really accurately time myself today. however, according to the super-thick minute hand of my trusty analog, i managed to complete 6 pathetic rounds from 5.12 to 5.26pm. which should work out to approximately 14 minutes left right. more likely right. hmmm... that's like 2 whole minutes slower than usual... but i'm not faulting myself! no practice, no competition, no incentive, nothing at all... not my fault... can't even judge my own speed. really prefer the "mass" way we do our 2.4s in school.
psst: i think i might have caught shuqi's fitness-freak virus. plus she hasn't been running much recently... must have passed it to me. somemore viruses seem to spread like wildfire(?) nowadays... hmmm. anyway, rina the mental-power-kia did 4k today. 4! which equates to 10 rounds. which is way beyond me. ok, i think i'll be actively trying to shave my time back down to 12m30s (hopefully), but any more than 6 rounds will most definitely kill me! (xinlian, zhenqi, read this! but don't let me prevent you two from pushing on, while i stop and slack ok? hiak)
oh, and i found a nice comfy pair of blue prestos which support my heels nicely, in the tm 2nd level world of sports! actually, there's another pair... some acg aquasox or something... not too bad too, but the women's colours are way too bright and girly... pink! yeek! but the acgs cost $60++ while the prestos cost somewhere around $130++. rina thinks the prestos look more "me"... will continue to look around lah.
i have a dim sum lunch date with xinlian and yingni tomorrow, then gotta meet liza at the goethe-institut earlier so she can... clear her questions(?) for the test toms. that's gonna be the first test of term two. *pa pa* considering i've really been slacking... 'tho still far from comparable to jc life. and i just downloaded the song zhenqi and i were humming on the way to dinner last night. shall share the chorus... really nice... and old, as is to be expected. :)
Run to me if you need a shoulder
Now and then, you need someone older,
so darling, you run to me.
hey, seriously, this song is really quite quite suitable... after all my days of running... haha.
