More October Routines

Two weeks since my last update… Still continuing my Oct. inking routine, but only barely keeping up with the daily Inktober prompts. Pulled a rare all-nighter on 11th (Friday) in the studio to work on a Chinese calligraphy piece for competition, was super tired afterwards and took me a few days and many extra hours […]

2018 Review

My resting heart rate continued to drop from 67 bpm to my normal 60 bpm in the past week, so I ended 2018 and starting 2019 with a healthy body. Before planning for the new year, here are some highlights of 2018 off the top of my head: completed my first full marathon completed my […]

World Cup Craze

Every four years I transform myself into a soccer fan trying to catch the World Cup games at the most inconvenient times (I never seemed to be at the same time zone of the World Cup host countries).  I don’t usually watch soccer games, and it must be more than a year since I stopped […]

Run a Marathon… Check!

I survived my first (and possibly my last) 42.195k run! Nearly bursted into tears when I crossed the finish line! 😭 Received my hard earned medal for finishing the marathon. I had put so much sweat, tears, and blood into it, but it’s all worth it! I’m not sure if I enjoyed the run, just […]

Day Before 1st Marathon

Woke up at 4am, carried out my usual morning routine, and then strolled down to the MTR station. Passed the MTR station and continued my way to the park where I have been training for months. Did some warmup and started my run at 0635 sharp. That’s when I’ll start my 1st ever marathon tomorrow, […]

Longest Running Practice

Completed my longest practice ever this morning!  Ran about 24k, walked for about 10 min at 3/4 of the way and tried taking in a pack of power gel.  My energy level seemed to have replenished somewhat as I didn’t feel the hunger towards the end like last week, but the joints on my left […]

Running Practice

It was a gloomy and cool morning, I slept in and woke up a little late.  Didn’t start my much anticipated long running practice until 11:30am.  Was targeting to run at least a half marathon (21k), but only managed to complete about 18k, and at a disappointing pace despite the good weather (for running). The […]

Running

Continuing my regular marathon training this morning, ran about 12k, just 30k short from an actual marathon 😅. With less than 1 month left till running my first marathon, I have been practicing 3 times a week for the last 3 weeks or so.  That’s probably still insufficient, I doubt that I can complete a […]

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 […]

Running

Ran for the first time since January! Totally out of shape, I could barely finish the ~2.5k run (I actually aimed to run 5k). I think it will take a miracle for me to train up for a half marathon, not to say a full one.
