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.

Job Application

With a bit of spontaneity, I’ve sent out my first job application in HK today!  I wasn’t really looking for a job per se, but I came across a part-time research position that seemed like a perfect match for me.  The job nature seemed right (research, part-time), the field (architecture, sustainability) is something I’m really […]

Back To Reality

Slept at around midnight and woke up at around 6am this morning, still jet-lagging a little I suppose.  Decided to pull myself back to the office today.  Cleared up my email inbox and caught up with my news feeds. Spent my yesterday going through the hundreds of photos I took during the Hawaiian trip, gave […]

Marathon

Finally submitted my assignment last night, I’ve spent much of my time this week working on it.  Relief!  I chose one of the buildings for the upcoming Shanghai World Expo 2010 as the case study, so the end of the assignment is actually a new beginning for my research of the much anticipated Expo. While […]
