‘REACTIVATE YOUR LIFE – HOW TO MAKE CHANGES AND ACHIEVE ANYTHING YOU WANT IN YOUR LIFE’

I am writing a book. There, I said it. I’ve been mulling the idea of penning down what I’ve learnt over the years that has enabled to me to make some major and extra-ordinary changes in my life. I began to write about 2 weeks ago and frankly speaking I didn’t know what to write and how to write it. There’s been days wen I would sit down and stare at the monitor without a clue of what to write about. Recently, the ideas just kept flowing in and them more I write, the more the ideas would come.

I don’t want this to be a conventional book and I am striving to make it different, if not in thee way it is written then in the way I write it. So I’ve decided to start releasing excerpts from the book. The first one can be found on the ReActivate Your Life Facebook Fan Page for the book. Have a read of it. It’s called, ‘Why some changes are doomed to fail’.

Over the next few weeks I’m going to be doing lot’s of writing and recording and video taping as part of my promotion and marketing strategy which is basically give people unbelievable value at no cost to them. Sure, I do want them to buy the book and attend the seminars that I’ll be conducting. For me even if they don’t, it’s ok as long as they get value from it. If I can help them make some real changes that will make them successful, then that’s all that matter.

BRICK BIKE/RUN

I did another brick workout this evening, the second one in a row but this time, it’s more intense than last night’s workout as it involved interval runs.

BIKE

I pushed the bike to the max I can push and my heart rate was in the high 70% and I know I am capable of more speed. I just need to make sure my legs can handle the run after. It doesn’t make sense to be speedy on the bike if I’m left suffering on the run. Which is why I am doing these brick workouts. The bike workout lasted 30 minutes and I managed about 11km despite the 8 corners I have to maneuver at the home park. By the time I got to the run, my legs were burning.

RUN

Tonight’s interval workout was as follows:

  • 10 mins warm up
  • 8 mins moderate
  • 14 mins easy
  • 21 mins hard
  • 10 mins cool down
The 21 mins hard was a real test for me as I was running at about a 2:35 pace per lap a my home park (my normal easy pace is about 3 mins). I’m quite pleased (actually very pleased) with myself as I was able to sustain the pace for 9 laps. If I had run another 5 at the same pace then I would have broken the 35 min barrier for the 5km and the fact that it was after an intense bike workout makes it even better.. I’m not in a hurry to do a personal best tonight though as I have to make sure I can run in the Standard Chartered 10km run this weekend.
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. I need to fit in another brick bike/run workout and a swim workout as well as continue writing my book and record an audio piece.
But you know. I’m having the time of my life and I feel so blessed and lucky to be able to do what I do.
