I am sort of opposite. I don't "reward" myself after a hard workout. Not much food cravings. I just exercise and then go back to my normal meals. I will occasionally eat some of my fav food in large amounts in 1 sitting. 

Last time when dine in was allow, i have all these MAF pace dinner or breakfast runs to nearby hawker centre just to have a meal. Of course, hawker centre stall must have some online recommendation before i go. Hahaha.

In the previous P2HA, I saw weight training outside Parliament House along Singapore River.

 

I think some ang mo country beaches have outdoor gyms. Maybe some enterprising people might do this at East Coast beach!

Gyms are another unfortunately casualty of this covid thing. I dare say that right from CB onwards through ups and downs, gyms have never been implicated in any cluster - aside from some scares. Despite mask off. Since distancing, gaps between pre-booked sessions, sanitization of equipment, and registration/tracing of participants are already all in place, why the need to close??

In future they should renovate gyms to allow it to be converted to open-air ventilated facilities whenever required, such as these times, then the activities can continue with a greater level of safety.

maybe ktv goers don't exercise in gyms. 😁 after late nights in KTVs and prob plied with liquor, surely no energy and insufficient sleep to exercise in gyms.

So gyms are therefore safe. 😁

Hi guys

A bit gutted that gym has to be closed yet again but learning to take it as it comes. I have been doing consistent training with weights and cardio since mid May. Weight has dropped from 64kg to 61kg currently. More muscle definition though still cannot compare to the hotbods in ST. At least there is progress...haha...A bit thick skin here but occasionally see fellow female joggers take a quick glance at me/in my direction. Or maybe I am over sensitive here. I have a couple of weights are home at 7.5kg each. Think I can improvise and do some workouts. If not all my efforts gone down the drain. Oh yeah did I mention that I am more careful with diet though I still have my occasional durians,ckt,prata,etc. Cheers and stay safe bros!!

Why you need to stretch after running or even brisk walking to avoid injuries

I only stretch from hip down - hip flexors, glutes, quads, hamstrings and calves. Takes away the soreness the next day, esp if it is a harder than normal run.

But I never stretch my upper body like she did since my upper body never do much in a run. Maybe I should start.

Not all outdoor fitness corners closed. My side still open this round and the last P2HA. It was only closed during last year's CB.

@Ender 's SK side is a bit siao on. Not representative of the whole country.

since I WFH now, I take the opportunity to do static or stretching exercises every hour or so if I can remember. Just maybe 5 min away from the desk. Nothing strenuous but just don't want the glutes to turn lazy.
