Half Marathon

Completed my half marathon run, 2hr 18min, my personal record! ✌🏻 The half marathon was not the main reason for this trip, I hesitated to register when my friend told me about it after I booked my flight because I stopped my running practice for 3 months due to the hot weather in HK. With […]

Childhood Neighborhood Visit

Got up really early and made a rehearsal drive to the bus station where I’ll be taking the bus downtown to the half-marathon starting point tomorrow morning. Still very early afterwards, I decided to go visit my childhood neighborhood. Started a long walk in the nature trail at around the time I’ll be starting the […]

Procrastination Before Vacation

In preparation for my upcoming long vacation, I have been procrastinating in the last couple of weeks trying to get things done so that I could have a worry-free break.  Managed to finish up work and head home for mid-autumn dinner with my parents tonight.  Rested a little and napped a couple of hours before […]

2nd Half-Marathon Completed!

Completed my 2nd half-marathon with an improvement of ~15 mins (unofficially) compared to last year!  Thankful.  Building upon experience from last year, this year’s run seemed more pleasurable and less exhaustive, it felt like I can run an extra 1 or 2k after passing the finish line!  Perhaps I can attempt to run a full marathon […]

Running

Managed to complete my longest running practice (~16.5k) before the upcoming half-marathon on Sunday.  Logged in my time and distance and did some rough estimations using my running records.  Comparing with last year, my accumulated practice run in terms of distance is ~20km less this year, but my average pace is considerably faster (improved ~0.3m/s). […]

Running

After going to a seminar last weekend and learning a little bit about the science of long run, I slightly adjusted my running practices.  I went for a practice on Monday and Wednesday and ran at a slightly quicker pace for a shorter distance (~6k).  And after resting a couple of days, I did a practice […]

Keep Your Legs Moving…

The 10k streetathon last Sunday was a bit of a disappointment, poor planning and preparation of the organiser had many runners including me stop way too often for way too long along the way.  Hot weather and street side air pollution were a couple of other disappointing aspects of the run. Perhaps due to adequate practice, […]

1st Half Marathon Completed!!

I’ve MADE IT!!  I’ve completed my 1st half marathon!!  Though slow (2h43min), I’m happy that I was able to complete the full 21K without stopping (I did stop briefly once to tie my shoelace). Although the weather didn’t cooperate (it rained throughout most of the run), it was a wonderful experience to run with so […]

Half Marathon Preparation

Last and shortest practice before the actual run on Sunday… Have been practicing on this same track since mid-Oct for 2-3 times a week, one of the nice thing about it is that I can see the Lion Rock towards the end of each lap! “我要向高山舉目,你的幫助從何而來?”

Half Marathon Preparation

Didn’t realize before how small HK is… A half-marathon (21K) already covers part of New Territories, Kowloon, and Hong Kong Island! Feeling anxious about my run on Sunday… p.s. Still can’t get my head around the CE address yesterday… While silly Mr. 689 has his grand but awfully vague mainland-centric agenda, I have my own […]
