SCSM 2007

Yeah! I achieve it. My 1st 10km run.. and i complete it within my target of 1.5hr. My Gun time was 1h 27m 3s and my net achievement is 1h 22m 55s! Hurray! Not so bad rite? Esp it my 1st run and my last training was like more than a wk ago.

From the analysis, I'm rank 2560th place (48%) in the entire 10km woman category, 617th place (46%) in the division category (Female age 25 - 29).

Ave time per mile is 13m 21s, ave time per KM is 8m 18s

Ave Speed is 7.2 km per hr, 4.5Mile per hr.

From the map above, i'm not even half way thru my race wen the Overall winner complete her race. When my division winner complete her race at a timing of 01:00:09, i was more than half way thru my race. And the ave timing for the 10km women event was 01:29:07. I fall into the top 50% finishers!

My re-called of event day itself: Hb's colleague's wife, Yvonne drove us to the event. It was a bit difficult to find parking space as raffles city was full n we only managed to find parking space in Funan. Den v hurry over, and lucky we can deposit our belongings at her car, so v skip the long Q at the bag deposit area and proceed straight to the starting point. While strolling over, a lot of the runners fr the earlier race have ran back to the starting pt, and heading towards East Coast. So many motivators ard.. esp at the finish point. Hb and his colleague prepared for their race at 7.15pm. Yvonne and I waited for our race at 8pm. Soon after the 7.15pm race started, i heard ple clapping and cheering.. some runners have already ran back... i tog they were the half-marathon which started at ard 6pm. Only wen i heard the marathon winners took 2hr +, den i realised they r the one who i saw! Wah.. to me they r crazy lor.. 2hrs to complete 42.195 km??? I took 1.5hr to complete 1/4 of their distance. At my pace, i can give up the idea to participate in any marathon or even half-mara in my entire life...

The run was ok.. ran continously till i pass the 4km mark.. den slow down and walk eventually. Run again wen i recover my energy.. Almost stop at every waterpt to recover my thrist, had a few cups of 100plus at the last few waterpt... Though i hate those isotonic drink like 100plus, H-two-O and red bull, i still end up drinking them during my events. Coz i learnt my lesson once.. i suffer from dizziness a few days after my safra run wen i did not drink enuff isotonic drink to recover myself.. end up the doc gave me more isotonic drink to drink. Anyway, all these isotonic drink become tasteless wen i'm too tired or desperate for water.

Overall performance.. I'm happy wif my results.. as all my friends did the run at 1hr+. Hb at 1h 4m, his colleague at 1h 2m, limin at 1h 14min and yvonne at 1h 28m.

Anyway, congras to the winners! And aso congras to everyone who complete the race! C u again next yr!!!
