It was raining the entire day but weather forecast said it would be sunny at 7pm. It wasn’t sunny but the rain stopped and the weather held. The run was on. The turnout wasn’t huge but i suppose it wasn’t suppose to be anyway. The race kicked off at 6.40pm with the team runners going […]

Got Legs, No Heart?

Returned to Minicing Lake Valley Park for my long run just now. Wanted to do 3-hrs of around 4 rounds. The weather was cloudy with strong wind. Everything seem to be going fine but I wasn’t in the zone. Into the 2nd lap, going up a relatively short and gentle slope, I stopped and decided […]

The weather has been pretty good recently, averaging in the high tens with some sunny days. The Cornwall pool is open and I have been doing a bit of swimming. It’s a small 25m pool with heating. While a little crowded at times, the pool is warm and reasonably clean. Did a short 20 min […]

Did some hill runs just now. Ran up uni hill 8 times. Felt like dying but truly satisfied. In fact I enjoyed the feeling of thrashing my lactate threshold and fighting with my mind to keep going. And rightfully, I should enjoy my runs. If I wasn’t, why am I doing it again and again? […]

Woke up early today for a quick workout. Had a quick cuppa of milo and Kellogg’s bar for energy. The weather was cooling yet sunny. The ideal spring morning. Did a longer warm-up run, about 1km, as I wanted to really warm up the Achilles tendon and calves. Found a quiet spot away from cyclists […]
