Sengkang > UPR > Sengkang 22km........longest with VFF




It was 5am in the morning......a week before my half marathon in K....I finally decided to do this route again.....a challenging one....becos the whole route are slopes.......The last time I did this route was in 2006.....i finished in 2hr 8min

This morning was much earlier....temperature was low...lower than normal here....i thought i not in Singapore......probably 23-24 degree

I started smoothly and control my pace....becos of last the 2 weeks of illness has drained quite a bit of energy and i dropped 3kg in 2 weeks

It was a peaceful run.......my mind just think of the wonderful things in life....legs are not tired at all....reached OUTR....it was 6am.....still dark.....a few group of cyclist zoom past...

reached UPR gate and it was darkness inside...I went in bravely.....visibility was low....at least I cannot see how steep was the slopes...so I just went on and on until I reached the end....11km done in 1hr 5min

I decided not to stop and U-turned immediately....it was me and the tarmac road and the vegetations....the sound of birds and the rustling of leaves

It was cool..very cool..aircon road....probably low 20s degree....nvr ran in such cool ambiance.....still cannot see slopes as the sun still not up............i just went on and on and very soon...all slopes done and back to flatter OUTR......

more cyclist came...and a group of runners went by.....the sky started to brighten...temperature still cool...so I just went on and on......my hard panting, no screaming legs.....and i realised I din drink much

came back to CTE and reached Singtel centre....a think layer of morning mist was formed....beautiful as the sun rays shine thru.......back to sengkang fernvale.....left 2km.......i maintained my breathing but quicken my steps.....

finished in 2hr 5min......2nd half of 11km was an hour and my last 2km was done in 10min...

Still breathing normally and my tights are still fine....except for the slight strain on both calves.....my longest run in VFF...and my most comfortable and peaceful one
