  1. As I wrote, the swab test requirement can only be impose once the testing infrastructure has increased, the pricing should be reduced by then also. We can't use time and cost structure of precovid situation in current environment. Temperature screening is a standard practice by now.
  2. As long as there aren't vaccine yet, I can see the Race Organizer making it rapid test or swab test(if by then lab testing capability has increased to cater more testing) compulsory for those entering the race venue.
  3. Not really, now need to comply with the guideline. It was issued on Monday and quite a lot of things to prepare the site before work can resume. So most probably will be working from home for another 2-3 weeks.
  4. I bought that exact brand, "Ultra Mask" face mask before the CB period, feels it is thicker than the reusable mask given on the first round of distribution. Tried to run with it and decided against it after half a klick. I prefer to run with a buff, to cover the mouth and nose area when passing other runner or people.
  5. Now even Lorong halus and Pasir RIs Industrial/Farmway are getting bit crowded. Anyway now switching to strength training indoor, need to serve SHN until 4th May as part of the construction sector.
  6. Yesterday I tried running at Tampines Eco park, nearby my place. Not too crowded but still quite a number of people. Back to running at Pasir Ris Industrial and Lorong Halus, just need to avoid the wild dogs and boars...
  7. Anything more than marathon 42.195 km distance.... since most of SCSM runner reported longer than 42.195 km distance they are all ultra marathoner....
  8. 1. Back to running HMish distance. I was focused on Marathon distance for 2017 to early 2019, with mixed results. Really bonked at SCSM 2017 & 2018, best timing at HK 2018 and somehow survived the winter blast of Tokyo 2019. I think I will only try the Marathon distance in temperate climate location. 2. Punggol Waterway, Pasir Ris and Lorong Halus and pipeline trail. This year I has been trying to use my running to explore Singapore. https://www.strava.com/athletes/13890947/heatmaps/56915d74#12/1.36218/103.93066 3. 7 to 10K 3-4 times a week and 15-20k on Sunday. Started to comm
  9. I never seen so many people lined up and cheering a running event, unbroken human chain along the roads from Shinjuku to Tokyo Station. It was 4-5c and raining, miserable for those running but even worse for those just standing and cheering the runners. Japanese race is really something to experience. Oh ok, that is nice first come fist serve instead the balloting system.
  10. Always enjoy your Japan Race review on your blog. After running Tokyo this year, I understand why you have this fondness of Japan Race. Thinking of running Kyoto or Osaka in 2020/2021. Btw is it entry for Yokohama Marathon by ballot too?
  11. By default earlier pen has more time to complete the course than later pen which is somewhat quite ironic. Those Pen G need to run faster than 7:30 finishing time pace if want to clear the checkpoint COT...
  12. When I did my run this year, I stay at Hanzomon area, on the other side of Imperial Palace from the finishing area. I found it quite nice, not too far from either start line or finish line. The marathon started at 9am? at Shinjuku area, so you don't have to really wake up in ungodly hours like in normal SG running event.
  13. Congrats, get ready to book your accommodation. Lookout for PocariSG, normally they will arrange some sort of seminar/sharing session about the Tokyo Marathon
  14. I prefer those rectangle style medals but this one looks quite nice.
  15. Start slow, even when you feel comfortable to increase the pace.
