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 […]

2017 Review

Took a quick look at the 7 New Year’s resolutions I made as year 2017 started, I’ve completed absolutely zero items, a couple were even left untouched, but I did make good progress on a few of them, so it’s not entirely futile. Looking back on some of the major events that happened to me […]

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 […]

Loving Vincent

Finally watched Loving Vincent this early morning (9am)!  I actually woke up at around 4:30am and couldn’t fall back to sleep, too excited?  I was able to finish my regular morning routine (i.e. breakfast & newspaper & devotion (sometimes)), then running practice and shower at home before heading out for the cinema.  A very productive […]

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 […]

Last Running Practice

Had my last running practice this morning before the half-marathon on Sunday. Ran 10K, took just a little over 60min, a personal record! Have been disciplined enough to regularly practice while vacationing. Practiced about 5 times, but doubt that it’s enough for the coming half-marathon, will try my best and enjoy the run on Sunday!

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 […]
