‘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’.

TECHNIQUE

OK. After my drama during my swimming session on thursday I’ve had a lot to think about. A few people wrote on my facebook wall that I shouldn’t give up and that I’m actually doing ok. Many many thanks for your encouragement and support. Just to clear away any doubts, I am not going to quit and in fact it has spurred me to find new ways and strategies to do better.

Technique is important not only in sports but in all skills that we want to acquire. When I started training for the triathlon, I said to myself that it doesn’t matter if I’m not be the fastest as long as I’m the one with the best technique. At that time, running was my biggest obstacle and the one with the greatest likelihood of injury especially when I consider that I weighed in at 120kg. That’s a lot of pounding on the knees and ankles so my technique better be good.

Me and my heart rate monitor…

Reza about to go for a 5km run at night

Today was the best running day I have ever had.

One of the things I invested in to help me in my exercising was heart rate monitor. I didn’t know such a thing existed until I saw them given to the contestants from the Biggest Loser Asia Season 2. They were all given Polar Heart Rate Monitors. That very night I began to do my research on heart rate monitors. I started looking for them the very next day and finally bought a Polar FT60 from Athlete’s Circle in PJ.
