I happened to see this on Facebook. The “Largest Mass Lion Dance Display” caught my eye because I am very partial to Chinese Dragon Dancing. So, I read more.

Wow. Over the top. What you would expect from mega-rich, ultra-ambitious Singapore. Good for them. They are going for some other records too — e.g., 54 Lamborghinis in a parade. Interestingly, they do not mention the ‘Guinness Book of Records‘. Maybe they don’t take Guinness Records that seriously in Singapore. Could be a cultural thing.

Anywho ….

I am sure we will see videos of this on YouTube. I will try and remember to check.

Just wanted to give you a decent heads up.

Happy New Year.

’29’, My Fitness Age, Per VO2 Max Measured By A Garmin Fenix 6 — 37-Years Below Actual.

by Anura Guruge


OK, I am SORRY.
But, I am, kind of, chuffed —
you can hate me, but you can’t blame me.

I have a daughter who is 30 and a son who will be 28 next year.

So, this is NOT bad for an old codger,
especially since my 19-year old daughter is going around saying “before he dies”.
She MUST know something that I don’t know.

Anywho.

This is per my new Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphire, which I wear 24×7.


My fitness age has gone down 10-years in the last 3-months.

Yes, I am working at it.

This was September 16, 2019.


Yes, I have been working hard on this for the last 8-months, having had knee-surgery 10-months ago, i.e., March 7, 2019. I was on crutches for 6-weeks. Though I climbed stairs on my crutches to stay semi-fit, I couldn’t really get going until I was able to start walking. Then, I really started to walk. I end up walking 6 – 8 miles a day and climb the equivalent of at least 60 floors/day.

 

 


Busting my knee was the best thing that happened to me in a long time.

Wake-up call.

I was NOT as FIT as I had thought. So, had to rectify that.

I am also 30 lbs lighter.


I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.
