Hot Bods Special: Fit Then and now

Angelina Then even took part in a 160km marathon in the past. Now, a knee injury has shifted her workouts to MacRitchie trail runs.


Angelina Then was a road-running enthusiast when she was interviewed for The Sunday Times Hot Bods column on Oct 16, 2011.

The 48-year-old aircrew member had even completed a 160km marathon in her heyday.

But an unexpected knee injury has forced her to cut back on her workouts.

Now, she hits the trails around MacRitchie Reservoir three times a week.

"These days, every run is actually a blessing, a mystery," she says.

Besides her regular runs, she also throws in a weekly tennis session with her husband, who doubles as her coach.

She says: "I think it's through sports where we can communicate."

As for her diet, Ms Then says she sticks as far as possible to fresh vegetables and home-cooked food with less salt.
