  1. Thanks @Kohpapa - unable to say if things are instated until I actually see it on the registration
  2. Perhaps shoe discussions should be in the Shoe category of the forum: http://www.sgrunners.com/forum/index.php?/forum/132-shoes/
  3. Have already put this in their heads when met with the team after in December. Have a meeting with them in mid-February and will push this harder and if I succeed, you will see this within registration
  4. I do like that Income Eco highlights some aspects but really wish they would do far more. Whilst the stats might sound impressive - the truth is there is a lack of transparency down the line. There is very little demand for PET bottles and would be interested with whom they are selling the bottles to as we export our plastic abroad and that currently sits at 4% with the majority of that coming from Industrial plastic waste. Talked to a couple of the resellers and they would not take the plastic bottles from SCSM as they said it will be incinerated and we would therefore have to pay them to take them!!! I even said I would take off the labels and caps to give them a pure product (different plastics to the bottles). They still refused to take the bottles. The Waste Management companies we have worked with at both Sundown and SCSM both said the plastic bottles were not worth it!!! We did manage to repurpose about 4,500 plastic caps in 2019. In 2018 we did manage to find 2 companies to take about 10,000 plastic bottles to use in art! As for the paper cups - have noted they have a waxy lining which could be plastic or a petroleum based wax lining. If they are "recycled" they will be exported to most likely Malaysia as China wants the waste paper to be 99.5% pure paper! Hence there is still a carbon pollution element. Really want the Eco side to be much more. But have given up with them as had deaf ears.
  5. There is a saying: But in this case for SCSM, you can't please all of the people all of the time. The govt agencies and SCSM will just need to make sure there is plenty of notification about the event on social media, newspapers, TV and radio + STB and LTA need ensure it is on their calendar and other relevant calendars. At least most people will know about it even if they're not happy about it.

    Ultra Runs!

    How about run along East Coast to Changi Point, swim to Ubin and then run around Ubin, swim back to mainland. Awesome

    Cycling

    Cycling is great cross training as it trains muscles in your leg that you don' use for running and keeps you fit. I cycled for a month to a marathon event in Geneva and beat my PB by 15 minutes! I felt really strong. Also using your bicycle more means a win for the environment, a win for your fitness and a win for your pocket as you save money from having to use your car or public transportation and sometimes saves you time. Additionally it is easy to integrate into your routine. Just need cycling paths to improve in Singapore and would be grateful for your help in writing to LTA to improve the cycling commute. Here is my blog post to explain what is wrong with the cycle paths: https://tyrelady.wordpress.com/2020/01/01/get-on-your-bike-for-the-new-decade/

    Ultra Runs!

    @trailblazer - totally agree. Once good technique has been understood, one can run in any shoe as well as extend the miles on those same shoes

    Ultra Runs!

    What's your favourite Ultra so far?

    Ultra Runs!

    The first time I did MR25 (after doing SCSM), had a buddy and we did one lap running, one lap skipping, one lap side ways, one lap tied together, and the last lap backwards..... also had Tiger Bear and was drunk on the side ways lap!!

    Ultra Runs!

    Strangely my favourite ultra was 135 miles in -40 to - 50 and has 3 check points along the route. There are regular snow mobiles to check if you're alive. Took me 3 attempts to complete. The first time had too much gear, the second time had frost bite and the third time was sweet success: Posts about my first 2 attempts: https://tyregirl.com/the-adventures-of-tyre-girl/category/arrowhead

    Ultra Runs!

    Have found that ensuring you have eaten well days before matters more than what you eat the night before an event. Simple sugars found in gels is for fast release but also causes sugar spikes. In ultras and those who require 5 hours or more in marathons, are better with stable blood sugar. Gels will spike the blood sugar hence you go thru highs and lows. Far better to train your body to work with stable blood sugar. We've talked about ketosis in past threads, and @trailblazer can tell you a lot about MAF diets to help with endurance. @starfinder - knee pain will be from poor running technique which @kohpapa has written about in other threads in the past and @trailblazer can coach you on. Once you have good technique, shoes are merely a covering to protect your feet.

    Ultra Runs!

    I do not recommend gels for nutrition unless you will be running fast. Have seen too many people bonk from gel overload. Far better you eat real food for an ultra and for endurance. The gels are good for a short term burst - like at the end. Too much simple sugar in your system will overload your liver function ..... hence bonking etc. Fat and complex carbs are far better like buttered bread.
