Weekly Summary (3 Oct - 9 Oct)

Reached East Coast at 6.30am and joined J, SK and G at 6.45am. We did a light stretch and started our half marathon at 7am. I not sure whether is a good idea for me as my longest run so far for the past 2 weeks is only 10km. So is a big Question mark on my endurance. We started at a comfortable pace until 7km mark at NSRCC entrance when G stomach giving him problem and he dropped out from the group. After about 8.5km. SK started to pick up and he went way ahead of J and myself. So J sticked with me all the way to ford road end and after U-turned at 17.5km, we started to pick up out pace for the last 3.5km. The sky started to turn dark at about 2km, the damn wind pickup its strength and went against us. We pushed on and struggled the strong headwind and finished at 2hrs 11min. A very good timing for me considering my first serious long run >10km after a long layoff. I was acually surprised that today's timing is faster than my last half marathon run (2hr 12min 20sec) at east coast 3 months back before i got my 2 months bronchitis... After the run, we met up the SgRunners(supposed to have gathering today but we wanted to run earlier and went our way). Had breakfast at MacD and went separate ways...Hope next time I have a chance to chat more with the SgRunners....
