Is physical shape really that important?
Wednesday, October 05, 2011
Today I learnt that not everyone is interested in my stories...
I have been torturing people's ears by telling them all sorts of my stories...
I thought I can give them some inspiration in life by sharing what I knew and what I experienced...
But, it is not as I thought..
So naive and stupid of me!
I must always remember to keep my mouth shut!

After so long only I learned,
Sometimes, I must pause in life.
Pause, to think of the next few steps in life.
Pause, to give people some breathing space.
Pause, to understand the problem better.
Pause, to cool the mind... And it did help me to see the whole picture clearer.
Pause, your thought will change within that second.
Pause is not losing, but improving.
I am always busy with activities.... Filling my time pack with all sorts of works and things to do...
I so scared to pause, as I was afraid to lose things that are already in my hands.
Only to realized that it made situation worse.
There is a Chinese saying:
"When a thing reaches its extreme, it reverses its course."
I must really learn to pause in life

What "resultant force" .... "Relativity" ...... "Circular motion"... ?!!
After teaching Physics for so many years, I realize, Physics is very fun and closely related to our daily life....
Of course this post is not so much about Physics, but from all these years of teaching experience, I found out that no matter how difficult is a subject, the more you read it, the more you can understand it.
Our brain is truly amazing....
When you do something repeatedly, you will become expect about it.
The point is,
You have to do it regularly....
Just like you charge your phone, you need to charge your phone every night, to enable your phone to work continuously.
So, you need to plug yourself into the source, to continue building the knowledge and wisdom.
If you want to train yourself to have six pack abs, you just need to do sit-up everyday, continue without stopping....
If you want to be able to cycle fast, you just need to cycle everyday...
If you want to understand a subject, just read it everyday. One day, out of a sudden, you will just be able to understand the topic.
And it will start downloading all the energy and wisdom from the Universe.
Do it day by day...
And increase the intensity and difficulty...
The sky is the limit...
Nothing is impossible.

Haha.... yeah, it's 35 km ride each time, with 5 steep slopes to cycle through....
Just to train up my quadricep....
More hills to climb here....
Other than that, I often train at Guthrie Corridor Expressway, to and fro Rawang from Bukit Jelutong.... round trip about 45 km.
It was so hot that I have to cover my face with cloth... like a terrorist only....

Next I wish to do is mountain bike.... hahah, before I am too old to do it...

I thought, better buy the cheapest bike, in case I don't like the sport, I can just hang it in my storeroom without feeling so heartache...
Never expect myself to get suck into the sport like a drug addict.
I still remember the first time I joined the present cycling group for my first training, quite a number of the cyclists came and lifted my bike up to check what's the weight of my bike...
They didn't say anything after doing so... I was so blurred and know nothing about bicycle. I thought, cycling means buy a bike and ride, that's all. Why did they want to check the weight...
Only later, my cycling gurus, especially Tony and Vincent, started sharing their cycling knowledge with me, then only I woke up from my innocent dream...
Cycling is not that easy!
First of all, you must find a bike with the correct size that suit your height. The frame of the bike has to be perfectly matches your body size, especially the top tube.
Frame that made from carbon is very light. When your bike is light, you can go faster than riding a heavier bike. Every kg count!
My first bike weigh 14.5 kg, and it is super heavy for a road bike~~!! Hahah... what a shame...!
Most of the cyclists' bike is only 5 - 7 kg.... That's so light!
Then we must have good shifter for the gear of the bike...
Some good shifter alone can costs more than RM1500 !!!
After shifter, you need to have a good bicycle crank... The number of teeth of the crank can influence your cycling speed.
There are big crank and small crank, you must know when to use big crank, when to use small crank.
A wrong shift of crank can tear your chain, and even spoil your gear!
There are so much more to learn about cycling.
And I'm so surprise to know that there is a local college offers Bachelor degree in bicycle science~!!!
This is me with my 14.5 kg bike.
I was using this bike to participate in the "Campaign for a line" round Penang island ride in Oct 2010. Total distance was 82 KM, and I was lying flat on the ground after the ride!
This is me with my second bike, which I bought second-hand, and still burnt a big hole in my pocket.
I was riding in the Le Tua 100 KM on 16 Jan 2011.
This time, I wasn't exhausted, but backside so ache during the last 20 KM ride... hahhahah...
Good bike really makes big different....
Anybody wants to ride?
I just love it.
