Thanks Simon! Actually mine too...so i told her that i'm running 100km instead :lol:, and i took so long to complete because i was 'pacing' a friend. 

LOL smart hahaha.

Already that time, back in 2015 when I told my parents I'm running 101km, they were like, siao ah and eh why you want to do this to yourself. For the marathon distance they're still ok with it, but anything further than that is insane to them. Haha.

Oops....then you better behave here hahaha. Anyway, i don't really have a specific training plan for my 100 miles. I just had been running about 3 times a week. The 2 runs on weekdays after work will be alternated between hills sessions, and speed training, while the weekends are reserved for LSDs.

To get my mind and body prepared, i signed up for a long distance race each month from March onward leading towards race day to keep my momentum going. I had Sundown FM in March, 50 Hours Non-Stop Run in April, Garang Warrior Ultra in May and MSIG 50 in July. Training for and participating at these races were all part of my overall preparations for my 100 miles.

For the months which i don't have races, i did my own LSD. The longest distance i've trained on my own before the race was only 40km at a go. But i gradually increased my weekly total mileage until i peaked at almost 100km a week, before i start tapering. Your back-to-back LSDs over weekends will also be very useful!

74km for you in 2018?? Very unlikely. I'll see you at the starting line, B2!! :spiteful:
