Relay for (my) Life
This past week Mr.C and I took part in Relay for Life here in Singapore. I talked a bit about it before and I posted about it here! but I want to talk about actually doing it and SMASHING MY GOAL!!
That’s right, I smashed my goal of 100km from March 5 to 13.
Nine days of moving more than I have in a while.
I generally do about 1.5km a day on average just walking around the apartment with some extra steps (therefore kilometers) on weekends or if I have to go out for something like a doctors appointment so I figured I could up that average easily enough.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t even consider the math of how much more it would be.
But going from 1.5km a day to 11.11111111…… a day is a HUGE increase.
I’d be forgiven for thinking I couldn’t do it but (again, honesty) that never even crossed my mind.
I figured I’d get the kilometers up by doing a few bike rides as well as my usual walking around. And it wasn’t that hard to hit 100km. Of course if anyone were looking at my profile page they might have thought I wasn’t going to get there because I took every day to hit my goal of 100km.
(You can still donate until the end of the month, so if you’d like to support me head HERE! or you can google a local to you Relay for Life and support there.)
In the end it doesn’t matter because I got there!!!
It felt good to do all that extra exercise and Mr.C and I took a couple of night rides along East Coast Park and enjoyed them so much we’re continuing to do it.
Full disclosure, I WILL NOT be continuing to hit 100km in 9 days from here on. It’s a little too much of a stretch and I’d rather drop those km so I can get back into daily yoga. But I will continue with the bike rides and extra walks as well as the yoga.
It’s all in my plan to get healthier but also see if I can move some of the weight the hormone treatment has added. I wouldn’t worry about the extra weight except I can’t fit into some of my favorite clothes! I don’t want to get a new wardrobe so I’m going to see what some exercise can do.
If it fails to go away I guess I’ll be going shopping. 🙂
As part of the Relay for Life we were invited to attend the ‘opening’ event at the Singapore National Stadium. One of the things I like the most about the event was the HOPE sign.
Due to Covid it was a limited event (which is why the stand behind the sign is empty) but it was still fun to go and get some of our km up while we did. Hopefully next year we won’t have Covid restrictions and will be able to spend hours walking around the stadium on launch night.
And now, it’s time for another ride. 🙂
