Blogger's guilt: The gnawing feeling that grows stronger over time for those who have been neglecting their blogs.
Hiya everyone, It's been an outrageously long time since the last post. I've been interning in KL and this is an update about the feasibility of training and working in KL. Been working at Chulan Tower which takes around 60mins to walk-LRT-walk from my place, my job starts at 8am and ends at 5:30pm after which I usually train at KLCC park. Many people have complained that KLCC park is far too crowded with runners and sightseers to do any quality running, but I find that the other park users usually do not hinder me due to my running on the grass... yes there's a perfectly good running track (albeit rather hard) but I've been super-paranoid about getting re-injured since my 4 month injury.
Overall, KLCC park is a great place, there are drinking fountains to be found in abundance, I have a secret place to stash my bag before I go running and most people are actually there to run. Besides, how many parks have a marked, 3000m track surrounding it's perimeter?
Contrary to all the stories that I have heard about the difficulties of training during internship, I haven't found it difficult or troublesome at all. This could be due to the fact that my job is an office job, my benign office hours and the abundance of potential running spots between my office and home. The only thing that has been forcing me to train inconsistently is my right calf's habit of flirting with injury. Due to that, I have not trained more than 4 days a week since I came home.
P.S Tareef bro, u asked what do i think about compression calf guards? I've never tried them before although many people have lauded their benefits. Maybe because I hate wearing lots of extra stuff when running.
