BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon 2014

Assalamualaikum,

Last Saturday, 11/10/2014, I finally participated in Putrajaya Night Marathon 2014 after months of waiting. I participated in the 5km Fun Run with my good friend, a first actually, as I’ve been joining fun runs/walkathons alone.

The night was full of excitement as there were thousands of runnera. The motto for this year’s marathon was NIGHT RUNNER: NULLI SECUNDUS and the running bib is yellow in colour. Last year’s marathon was QUIT AT NEVER with a flourescent orange running bib. I was also on a personal mission to reduce my weight by 31kg. Yes! I’m obese according to BMI standards.

2 of my brothers also participated in this marathon. Brother no.3 is running the Full Marathon for the 1st time & brother no.5 is also running his 1st ever Half Marathon. Their race started at 8.00pm & 8.30pm respectively. The 10km race & my fun run started at 8.45pm & 9.00pm respectively.

My personal achievement during the fun run was I managed to run 1km non-stop before I continued with brisk walking for the rest of the 4km. Haha. A big achievement I tell you as compared to what I managed 2 weeks ago in the Pink Charity Run 2014.

But still I was sweating, puffing & aching my muscles trying to finish the event. My friend initially had the intentention of crossing over to the other side of the route & give up. But she managed to overcome that feeling & continued to finish the fun run with me. This was her 1st time running & she love it. I think everyone should join marathon even just once in their lifetime.

Yeay! I got my finisher medal & certificate of participation.

Ok now I’m going to tell you what I took that helps me in my fun run. I took Shaklee supplements of course! And the combination is this:

image

1. ESP Soy Protein Isolate Powder – taken 2 hours before the run to fuel me & keep me from feeling hungry. Also it helps to make me feel full & avoid solid food as eating food may cause heartburn as what I experienced last year.

2. Performance Orange – drank during the race to keep me hydrated longer.

3. Omega Guard – taken 3 capsules immediately after I finished the fun run. This helps to subside the swollen muscle & prevent sore muscle the next day.

4. Ostematrix – taken 4 caplets before I went to bed. Magnesium in Ostematrix helps to ‘massage’ our muscle & let it relax.

And Alhamdulillah in 3 days, I don’t suffer from any muscle ache. Usually, it’ll take me about 7 days. And I hate it so much even if I know it means my muscles are functioning. However, the pain is of muscle ache that lingers on, has cut my enthusiasm to execise.

But now no more!
I have found my ‘magic potion’ to exercise and I can’t wait to run some more. I’m targetting that by next year’s Putrajaya Nighr Marathon, I’m going to run the 10km race!

Kisah Viralnya Overnight Oats

Assalamualaikum.

Kali ni saya nak bercerita pasal Overnight Oats yang sedang viral dan trending di kalangan rakan-rakan FB dan ahli keluarga saya. Err..saya la tu yang menghasut diaorang untuk cuba dengan post Instagram saya hari-hari.

Asalnya saya sedang berdiet, dan salah satu pelan makanan adalah snek. Snek dalam pelan diet Mat Saleh ni selalunya muesli, nuts, fruits, yoghurt, etc. Sambil browse health practitioners punya Instagram asyik la nampak pasal Overnight Oats. Tengok senang je buat. Dari situ tergerak la hati untuk buat, dah alang-alang beli barangan makanan diet lain kan.

Bila Google resepi, senang je buat. Saya suka resepi yang sekejap, tak perlu masak & sedap. Saya guna resepi yang ni.

Inilah bahan-bahan yang saya guna.

Dan taraa….ini antara hasil Overnight Oats saya.

Saya menghasilkan 2 jenis overnight oats.
Yang pertama; strawberry, dark chocolate, kismis, apple & ESP Soy Energizing Protein Powder
Yang kedua; pisang, peanut butter & Meal Shake.
Yang saya sebut ni adalah inti Overnight Oats saya. Asasnya saya guna Quaker Quick Cooking oats campur dengan susu, madu, serbuk kayu manis & yoghurt tanpa perisa.

Apabila hari-hari saya update pasal overnight oats di Instagram lama-lama rakan-rakan pun terpengaruh. Ahli keluarga apatah lagi. Semua pakat buat. Alhamdulillah. Benda baik kita kongsi dan sebar-sebarkan supaya orang yang kita sayang dapat hidup dengan sihat insya’Allah.
