Me, Syed 'Adabi' Mahadzir Syed Manshor, RJ Rahman had a bad premonition of the Newton run and decided to run away from the Newton.. The Newton Race was a major & horrible disaster!!! true enough... There were no mileage marker (except for the last 5km), no lighting & everything was in complete darkness at start guided only by passing car headlamps, major lack of water supplies - runners even snatched water from other runners at the water stations. Under the hot weather, water hydration is the most important thing!!! Inexperience organiser? very badly organised!!!

Of the many runners above, we had 2 Virgin-Runners whom ran and completed their first race... Dayang Norrafida and Norliza MOhd Khalid and one Virgin-Medal John Chuah, whom received his first finisher medal after running a few races.

With so many recruits still recovering from the Newton race, Sarge Dann postponed the Benchmark assessment to Wednesday and we had the introduction to the fundamental workout and form today... especially important to the new comers to avoid unnecessary injuries!! Sarge Dann was assisted by Corporal Sandy and LC Nawal. The targeted muscle group was the chest, lower body and abs as well as cardio to start elevating the heart rate for fat-burning.

The circuit comprised five sets of Chest workout & Sprint, five sets of Lower Body & Sprint and another five sets of Abs & Sprint with the Delta starting only with 8 repetitions, 4 reps for Seals and 2 reps for Rangers & new recruits. The repetition was increased by an additional 2 repetitions at each sets.

The first part comprised of the Military pushup & Sprint, Military situps & Sprint and Grunts & Sprint before a short 30 seconds water break. We then continued for Part 2 with Kingkong Pushup & Sprint, Touches de Shoe Crunch & Sprint and Stuter Squat & sprint with similar increasing repetitions.

The last circuit, the newcomers were introduced to the TABATA. TABATA is a workout performed for 8 sets of non-stop 20 seconds workout and only 10 second rest.

As today is the first Day of OBC'S 8-WEEK CHALLENGE, we experiemented Gunny Emily's diet recipe... and ON MY GOD!!!! its YUMMILICIOUS!!!

We had the Turkey Meatballs with Garlic Dipping, Grill Halibut, Gladiator Cup Cakes, Turkey Omellete with no-fat Ricotta Cheese and Salmon Omellete with Oregano leaves. Of course, I did not cook.. I am incharge of the Eating Department... I eat whatever is being served.

Although various attempt to sabotage the First Day Diet by ..... ehem ehem.... but the super kiasu recruit became stricter with their diet... ! Good Luck to all the contestant of the 8-WEEK CHALLENGE.. if there is one friendly advice from me... just eat whatever you want to eat.. life is too short!!!  ......THAT WAY I CAN WIN THE CHALLENGE & RM15,000 HAH!! :-p (JOKING YA!!)

On a serious note.. we can do this!!! lets do it!!! only 8 - WEEK!!!

p/s- 7 days NO-CIGARETTE!!! YAHOO
