Yes, without a pacer like me, we will probably be alone running for a large portion of the route. I was at the familiarisation run from CP1 to CP3 last Sunday. In the morning at 7.50am, it started off as a good run along Upper Thomson Road but as we approached Yishun Ave 6, the sun started to torture us. Needless to say, the run from CP2 to CP3(Sembawang Park) was hot but good as there were many pedestrians on the pavement. This time, we were not alone. There is a fountain park just outside the Northpoint City where we can cool ourselves down. There were several construction along this avenue that we need to be careful. Along Sembawang Road towards the park, it was nice and shaddy. Overall, we took around 2.5 hours for the run (minus the short break at CP2). Unlike others, a new-found jogging friend and I decided to jog back to MacRitchie Reservoir. It was a walk-and-run experience as my calves were giving up. I ended up walking the whole stretch of Upper Thomson Road to MacRitchie!! I think I should train more next few weeks.
