Steady... steady...

Just some miscellaneous updates...

Had our KPMG mock exam yesterday... to prepare us for our CA exam on 4 September. The turnout was pretty bad... there are more than 20 of us taking the exam but only 8 showed up. And it's mandatory too... well, I guess if they could get partner approval not to attend... The mock was okay... difficult to tell... would find out our results next week.

I also received my EP assignment results... 74%... and I BEAT JIUN! Jiun is the boy who got merit for the last 3 CA modules and top of the state in one of them. But I only beat him by 2 marks... which translate to only 0.5 marks overall...

Training has been progressing steadily... did my 8.5kms yesterday in 37:36 (average 4:26 per km). Was also able to do 16 x 100m swim this morning on 1:30 cycles, clocking between 1:25 to 1:27. The acid test would be my 17km run this evening...

Oh, and ONE of my black toe nails fell off. I felt it during swimming... like something was dangling at the edge of my toe. Didn't hurt at all. Now a soft nail is in its place.

*Edit* I just did my 17km... man, was I slow! 1:25.21 (average 5.01 per km)... I felt some tightness around my left knee area... both above near the quads... and below near the shins... I slowed it down to a jog pace and kept it there until the last 2kms. I hope this is only one-off and not that the City to Surf jinx has come to haunt me AGAIN!

Hahhah... maybe... I don't remember it from the movie though... maybe a tv episode? But it's quite commonly used what...
