My first motivation for running is just to get fit and loose some baby fats. I've been playing badminton for atmost 4 years, and let me tell you, you won't slim down if you don't cut on the FOODS. Clearly its not working for me. I have to increase my playing time to burn more calories which i can't because I lack the time (being a new father and all the baby stuff to take care of). Or I can stop eating which is a difficult vice to get rid of. Hehe. And of course I can just introduce a new activity to burn additional calories and still have the time (run in the morning when baby is asleep hehe) for some baby stuff. So i thought, what about running? Its all the craze I've been hearing.
So i've started running. With the goal of loosing those baby fats. Last Dec 2012 I did some practice runs and started out with some light jogs. I log my runs using www.mapmyrun.com website and used their android app for tracking my pace, distance and time. After a month, I thought, these darn smartphones are just so heavy in the pocket that I decided to invest in a running watch. I've bought a Garmin FR10 and log my runs using the Garmin Connect site.
I'm planning to post a review in the Garmin FR10...hmmm..maybe..hehe. For now, I'm loving that I can use it for running and just an everyday watch.
Keep running...Next up, 5k Fun Run...
