yo, joegoh, uncle's favourite kids athletics program supporter..yes..uncle supports also, let uncle explains more..

kids of ages 6-10..encourage them to run, jump and throw..because good for physical development overall..and so let them just have fun..and already uncle never encourage "run 6km" with adults for fun..for them, they don't know what is "km"..and so what is "6km"..and they don't know what is hydration point then drink..for them..you try them out at stadium track..first 400m..fast fast..2nd 400m..start to pant and stop completely before reaching 600m..and of course, adults, would say, "come on, you can do it."..to kids of their age..they don't know what is "you can do it"..and as such, if you look at recent kids competitive runs.. SCMS kids run is 750m..and did uncle say something about "fun run at 6km" with kids?

so, if you see kids at play..run, jump, and if given a ball, throw..there is several good development.. run..fast, long..jump..high, long..throw..far, long, low, high.. so how about, run, jump, throw..and everyone wins..including adults..and that where joegoh comes in..a series of programs..

good that Pog has brought out a good topic.. great for papa and mama sgRunners..some whom uncle has suggested..when run, please bring water bottle..and uncle would like also..to do this fun exercise before run

"clench your fist.. and ask kids to clench their fists..compare your hearts..vs. the kids hearts"..so ask yourself if you can run 6km..can the kids hearts run 6km?..imagine the amount of blood and pumping..and sweating with high heart rate..how many times more for kids..and so understand why SCMS 2012 Kid's Run is 750m only..and also this coming Venus Run..kid's run..is 800m..did any race organiser mention of kids running at 6km?..oops, safari zoo family run got one..so remember..go slow slow with kids for that one and bring water bottles, and not wait for hydration points then drink, ok?..for the kids respect you, watch tv, running must be fast and win medals..for you, adults..to please you..that's all.. :turned:

You got my respect kohpapa, I'm amazed with your knowledge in "run, jump, throw"! You are working in the physical training field?

yap..ericx..uncle is a youth athletics coach..certified by IAAF, international coaching license..but that can includes teenager or young adult racewalking, cross-country and marathon running..and thanks for that quick "respect", for uncle earns that, coach uncle also can..uncle specialises in middle and ultra distance running..and field events in long and triple jumps, with special interest in pole vaulting..with secondary sub-knowledge of all throws..including hammer..which uncle now trained to improve upper body power and strength..and latest is uncle's core..peacock stand meridian core or sometimes they call navy seal training.. like this, shoik right, no special effect like jacky chan's movie on parachuting down, but actually bluff one http://2.bp.blogspot...0/navy seal.jpg

    • I think those who want to run better continue to do so when they can. CB is just another word for lockdown. The problem is the govt is so adverse to the word that it try to be creative with its term. Just like we call it 'Safe Distancing' instead of 'Social Distancing' but everyone knows it mean the same thing. Given the current trajectory, I would not be surprised if very soon, you would not even be allowed to go out for exercise or a walk. (Just like over the causeway)   
    • Great to see some sgrunners from Eastern SG and getting the needed workout today.  Good tips from kohpapa on safety distancing during exercise. I chose an industrial area with a park and saw less than five runners during today's morning run. Continue to stay safe and healthy here during this tough times.😷
    • ulu time and ulu routes...make sure don't run 3am - 5am...because "run" on sleep means..you bang to lamp posts while on Sleep mode... and also, encounter wild dogs means you have been "tracked" as food... run strong, and stay CB measures at all time...1m...even you are chased by wild dogs...maintained always at 1m...otherwise...fine or jail or both...😷  
    • Tampines ECo Park...being there..closer to Pasir Ris, further from Tampines Central, therefore...not crowded... Pasir Ris Industrial / Lorong Halus...wild dogs and boars...yes, encounter wild dogs...but wild boars? seen wild boars at lower piece reservior (old thomson road) and Pulau Ubin... maybe if want to see wild animals, surely Eng Neo Ave... this one is close to Turf Club Road...Bukit Timah...
    • yes, ran before... if continue with an overhead bridge (TPE) to pasir ris from Ikea tampines...you can go to pasir ris park...via api api river... uncle is familiar with your route..because Bedok Reservoir >>> Tampines Ave 10 >>> IKEA Tampines >>> Pasir Ris Park is our 10km Pit Stop...for Sundown Ultramarathon 100KM route... of course, Pasir Ris Rark to Changi Village via Loyang, that will be another 10KM Pit Stop... if given you should want a half-marathon route...then you should head to one of the Car Parks at Changi Beach Park... good to explore...but don't let mata Exercise Ambassador catch you...why your breach CB rule that says...run only at near your house...and they want to see your ID with address...then hope you explain why and not kena Fine or Jail or Both...don't play play...😷
