10K Run

Temperature rose above 20 degrees yesterday afternoon and I decided to go out for a run.  Haven’t ran for weeks, a bit out of shape, I stopped running after 3k.  Thought about giving up and head home, but it was still early, so I found a place to sit, rest, and watch some youngsters play […]

10K Run

Decided to go for a last run this afternoon before the cold weather sets in.  I was finally able to break the 60 mins. barrier, my new unofficial record for 10k run is 56 mins! Thank God!  And I really mean it as I was constantly reminded of this bible verse at times when I […]

10K Run

Allocated time this afternoon to work on a new feature for a custom CRM system, but about 10 minutes into work, I got stuck and couldn’t proceed without further information from client. Took it easy and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon instead.  Went running, still out of shape, had to complete the 10k in 3 separate […]

10K Run

The sun was shining again today after nearly a whole week of gloomy weather.  Went out for a run, the last time I ran was more than 2 weeks ago! I was rather out of shape, had to stop after running 5k.  Was thinking about calling it quit and head home, but I was quite […]

10K Run

Ran another 10k tonight, my 3rd time since last week.  I recall that my legs were tired for close to a week after my 10K run last year, but now I seem to be able to recover in just 2-3 days.  It’s good to see improvements. I can now seem to consistently finish a 10k […]

10K Run

Completed my first 10k run this year (although unofficial), clocked at a little over an hour, 5 minutes less than my record last year.  Still need to cut 5 more minutes in order to achieve my New Year’s resolution of completing a 10k run within 55 minutes. Still hasn’t started work today, instead I’ve received […]

10K Run (Completed!)

Woke up at 6am in the morning to prepare myself for my first ever 10K run, happy to say that “I’ve made it!”.  It was an interesting experience to have so many people running with you, the atmosphere was filled with tremendous energy. My official time is 64’17”, a personal record, but still way below […]

10K Run (Training) – 6

Don’t want my muscles to be too cold entering the 10K run this Sunday, I pushed myself to do one last training tonight.  Ran ~5K, felt ok, and my “injured” left toe didn’t seem to be too bothering me.  A good warm up run. Still not certain that I can complete the run this Sunday, […]

10K Run (Training) – 5

I was determined to complete a 10K run before the training even started today, and I’m glad to say that I’ve made it!  The average pace matched my lowest record, but I can work on that later, finishing the entire course without resting is all I ask for at this stage. This is definitely a […]

10K Run (Training) – 4

Just when I thought I may have the chance to finish a 10k run, my running distance (and consequently my confidence) took a dive for the first time in today’s training.  I could barely finish 5 km, self-doubt was probably the main culprit. The 10k run is next Sunday, would I stand a chance of […]
