And this one, a 5K on 23rd September

5K Jakarta Marathon 2012

….

And suddenly I feel I’m too lousy and over confidence for taking part in this sucha event.

Gosh. Wish me luck!

Target.

Oh I hate target. I super hate it.

Then I found most of pictures in this tumblr super motivating me 🙂

I super love this pic below:

it was like, a target. or should i say my dream or vision before

 

Then today I found this

 

Jakarta Marathon 2012

 

OMG! OMG! It’s like a dream come true!

Race was in front of me directly. Their twitter account even add me on first. I believe it’s a sign, that I have to join.

Then I sign up. I don’t want to think of anything else.

I think I’m drowning crazy. A super crazy mom. Wtf. I will run for fun. For the sake of the joy of running.

 

I don’t like target. But I will work hard for this.

Posture, Wave of Hand, and Core

Only for running you have to set a posture? Your hand and so on?
I bet when you read that, you’ll be lazy to start one. I was one of them too

Until I get sore in my liver while running. Then I ask someone in twitter @IndoRunners about my problem. He said it was because my breath rhytm was not sync with my pace. He advice me to take 2 short breath & release 2 short breath. Thanks a lot @RezaPuspo it really helps!

Then I browse some more info from http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-238-267-268-8210-0,00.html for posture while running. Keep your bone straight, wave your hand low, tight your core, then run.

I found it really helpful. I feel a light weight while running, low tension on my feet.

Or you can read http://indorunners.blogspot.com/2012_04_01_archive.html for Bahasa version. Points are mostly same.

I need to enriched my brain before doing something. Running has its own trick. I don’t have much time for running. So I have to make my running moment in outstanding quality.

New Addiction

Ok. So now I’m addicted for running.

Running, jogging, whatever you name it.

My main goal for doing this was for reducing my FAT. *sigh*

Yeah that’s true. After my baby turn into 1 year last May. This baby fat still won’t go away. So should I keep pondering & wishing those fat will just go away? Then back doing some fat burner & vitamin C whatever-they-say injection again?

I don’t think it will be good final decision for me. No. It is not healthy & good at all. In the end, all those injection will made me addicted for something instant. And of course will affect my emotional or point of view if  I did it again and again.

Then I came to the moment for oh-so-many-freakin-excuses. God knows how I avoid workout everytime I had chance.

That is true some quote that said: Exercise in the morning before your brain figures out what you’re doing.

One day, I just woke up on 4.50 AM then prepare to start my run. My very first run in my life. I do hate run. I don’t like the sweat that run in my body, I don’t like the tension, I don’t like heat. I don’t like verything.

My first run was only about 0.37KM. Short eh..then in increase into 1.18KM. Into 1.35KM. Now reach 2.44KM. I was suprised by myself.

I never thought that I could do that.

My first goal to shed away those fat already accomplished.

…..

Then who thought I earn more ‘side effect’ from running?

I’m still breastfed my baby. The amount of my pumping breastmilk already reduced a lot. I only got about 2 bottles of @100ml which can fed my baby 2 times. Then it increase into 250ml. And 300ml.

Whoa, super amazing! A mom with 14m daughter still have a lot of that breastmilk to fed??? When they all said that breastmilk after 1 year will reduce & dry? Hell, I can break all of those myths!

Oh. Did I mention that I earn those lots of breastmilk during fasting month? When some moms crying that their breastmilk decrease a lot during fasting month. While I don’t face it at all. I’m still fasting. I keep running. And my breastmilk keep running so well

Workout, any kind of it, will recover your entire blood circulation. That thing; that I believe made my breastmilk produce lot and a lot.

Then why should I stop running after I reach my shed away pounds target?

Running, gave more happiness. Good stamina. I have more power to play with my daughter too every night.

Nail It. For whatever your goal.
