Beyond the beaten path

For the past 6 years i have generally stuck to the 3.8k loop of the shah alam lake gardens.  that route would take me past the 'popular' spots (mainly the 3 taichi areas and the playgrounds) as well as the lonely stretches.

Theres also the reflexology hut that not only offers a mini path for use but also serves as a meeting place for most of the taichi practitioners. its a popular place and sometimes its quite difficult to find a spot of your own.


Many tend to forget or overlook the fact that there actually is another reflexology path at the extreme end of the tasik (the one beside kedai kopi dua).  its bigger and actually better bcos it consists of 3 separate paths, one of which is specifically catered for the senior citizen.




 

Its where i spend my mornings whenever i'm on a running break.



After about half an hour of walking through the path, its feeding the turtles & fishes then on to my favourite spot for a little stretching and practising my asanas or yoga poses.

A great way to start any day believe me ;D

Wow... you've been running for the past 6 years huh? Assuming that you run twice a week, that works out to 104 times a year, darab dengan 3.8km (darab lagi dgn 2 kalau buat 2 lap), darab dengan 6 tahun... jawapannya, aduh banyak tu! That's Shah Alam to JB, back and forth a few times over.

The only running I do is away from creditors...

Oldstock - u dun hafta run, choose something thts more your thing but one that can also make u sweat hard enough to drain out all the stress.& negative energy.

Go swimming.. its therapeutic, sambil exercise sambil main air hehehe
