7.4.15

Of running and eating .... :)

I was to blog about my thoughts on the Ching Ming festival which I just got back from KL but since I gave so many comments to SK's blog on the same topic, I decided to blog on something else. Well, maybe I should talk about my upcoming runs. All is not lost after I skipped yesterday's run due to family duties as my company sponsored me and my interested colleagues for a 10KM charity run, to be scheduled in May. That was so nice as the following Monday is a holiday too. The run was scheduled on a Saturday morning. Thus, I can take a good break after that!

Then, I was contemplating whether to take part in a half marathon in July. One of my ex-colleagues is going for it and he's also a newbie to running. In fact, he struggled for 3 hours for a HM yesterday. Seeing that the Singapore Sundown qualifying time for a medal is 4.5 hours, I think I should be able to achieve it but still I needed to train for it. Nowadays, after a 10 to 11KM run, I was really tired. Not sure if I can last the run ...perhaps walk and run for the rest of the 9KM. LOL....

OK, I was at Pastamania and ordered an Hawaiian pizza for a change. It was nice, crunchy and hot. The small 7" pizza was just nice for me though I needed to run more to burn off the calories.

Earlier of the day, I had a truffle chocolate cake at Hanis restaurant near the National Library. I simply love the dark chocolate but with these food, I really gotta run more.... :(

Have a great week!

  5. Pastamania, I have been to the one in Pavilion once and I guess not long later it closed down, haha!! actually many eateries survived in SG but not in KL, eg: MOS, Long John Silver, Pastamania.. I guess it has to do with the managing team..

    1. lina- Not so good, as I mentioned can last for 10-12KM only. I think I need to up till 15KM to qualify for the HM.

    2. You need to learn how to pace yourself, that's all.

      We can't expect to run at the same pace of a 10K race in a HM... not for our first HM, anyway.

      Start slow and finish strong.

    3. Thanks Lina for the advice. yeah, I need to run at a comfortable pace.

  8. Haha. Could not help laughing at your comments. Need to run hard after all those indulgences.

    I just had pizza last Friday so not so craving for it. But chocolate truffle, could not resist it. I also need to run if I eat that slice. Gained weight faster at this age than when I were in my 20s!!
