Today was Alpha Company's ORD parade and our hand over parade to transfer two platoons to Alpha. So I woke up as Bravo Company, and part of the junior company. I go to sleep tonight as Alpha Company, and part of the batch of seniors in the unit.

It's alarming how fast the cycle goes, and I know it's going to be very soon before it's our turn to do our ORD route march and throw our caps in the air. There's a certain comfort and discomfort all at once as we make this transition.

That said, I'm glad to head to Alpha. The leadership and command structure seems immediately better. I mean, the first order we received was from our OC, that no one was supposed to be in camp by 6pm tomorrow and we were all supposed to go off for nights out. Awesome stuff.

...

I'm very underprepared for Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon at the end of the year. I'm supposed to be clocking 16km distances but I felt rather wasted during yesterday's 2km run already. 9:19 is horrifying, it just screams that I've wasted my registration fee x.x.

Except that for now, I've no juniors. And well plenty of nights off, I'd agree I guess. Hopefully we'll get our twice weekly ones soon.

I think I'm screwed for fitness, very very unfit now.

Yes mother. And as of today, I'm officially going to cut my food intake and watch my diet, plus run more. I've been too lazy and snacked too much.

What happened to your fitness? Doesn't your unit give you PT? If not, you ought to be squeezing out time to exercise.

We get a bit of exercise but lately I've been excused from a lot of them because they clash with something. So my monthly mileage is somewhere like 4km for October, especially after counting the week that I was at home and unable to run for fear of popping my blood clot.

I'm going to try squeeze a 8km this Friday evening somehow, before I go back for confinement on Saturday morning.
