Grrrrr my legs are really aching more than they ever did in my entire three years of running marathons.
I attribute it to the my goal this year of running without walking…..Anyway even though everyone seems to do thhat effortlessly, I maintain that it is detrimental to me. At the 32km, my legs were so sore from the repetitive action of striding and pounding that they felt like a different part of me if I lifted it too high or strided further than what I ad been doing…..that was when I had this thought…Maybe I should stretch…but thhen I struggled internally since stretching involved stopping which was against my goal this year.
SO anyway I went and did it anyways. It felt so good to stretch. But sadly I was not much faster after….and then at the 39km mark, I walkedfor like 150m….yes I am so ashamed of myself for not keeping to my goal of the day…but i just needed my legs to bedoing something different after so long…and that was when I concluded that I cannot make it back before 5hrs…..so disappointing.
I was hoping to be one of those who never train and yet clock a FOURhrs something….GRRRRR so annyway my timing was about 5hrs and 10min…lousylousylousy..
the upside is I met quite a lot of pp….Chenyu, Mike, Xavier, Joyce, Colleen, Ronghui
But I din get to see Seeling and Weibin =(
and I wanna complain!!!!! they wouldn’t give me 2 powergels….I was kinda irritated cos it’s not like I was intending to store them at home for future use. and I mean they could jjust donate more powergels in future if they wanted to have a station giving out powergels. I don’t even care if its near expiry…GRRRRR
and the few things which tickled me
1. man on left: arrow pointing to right, she had one briight idea
woman on right: I had one lousy idea
2. I am running so I hhave a valid reason to take mc tomorrow.
3. Man in straw hat and jjap wraparound top says I am japannese and i ran marathons 304 times
4. Man with a keep running, chase me if u can message on his bib and he was WALKING.
6. balloon woman
and i had this sudden epiphany…maybe i should go and pierce my nose. yes yes yes,….despite my veryy flat and non flattering chinese nose.
