Income Eco Run 2019 - 28 Apr (Sun)

Recommended Posts

What I was trying to highlight is, there are many ways to plot. Following the middle of road/lane tends to give a longer distance than what most runners will run. Most of the numbers I see in Strava fall within 20.4 to 20.8km. I guess it's quite reasonable the official one is very close to 21km.

Lots of comments on the distance.

sure there were some spots where gps signal will be blocked due to roads or roof overhead. But the route last year similar. That’s why Inposted what my watch measured last year and this.

I am certain the distance was shorter because I started walking earlier this year and I finished 16 mins faster. Since I walked a fair bit due to straining and injuring my ITB before Sunday, I didn’t go left and right much and stayed close to the side of the route. Rightfully, I should clock more than 21.1km but didn’t. 

Anyway, majority are not using the results for overseas race qualification but even if you do, faster finishing times for ystd HM may mean you start at earlier start pen. LOL


Let’s be thankful for quick release of official results and also Running Shots who uploaded the photos to FB already. On to next race.......

    • Reports from the field: Did three more runs this week. I reconfirm that as long as I keep the pace easy, I have no problems whether I use the buff mask or the one I crafted out of moisture wicking technical fabric (old race shirt). Jogging pace just seems frustratingly slow as molasses though, but given the data posted by the others here, I'm convinced there's really a danger of getting a collapsed lung or a heart attack if you insist on pushing too hard with a mask on, so be warned! If races do ever push through this Nov or Dec, I'll still wear a buff mask (for whatever its worth), even if it you're not required to wear one. I won't be breaking any PRs anytime soon, but that can wait for better times. Long run planned this weekend...

    • Better check.... That brownish stained color plus description is most likely metal strip rust. Probably design fault didn't expect user to soak overnight and then starts to rust. Of course, if you need to use it urgently for "washroom with no toilet paper" (a premium item now during covid-19)... then use it with no other choice, staining it with the real stuff...discard better...no need to rewash...for it has served the purpose...what a relief! Really when nature calls, you may never know your when you "ultra (layered) mask" may come by useful...btw, please bring a backup mask, just in case, for you still need to Wear Mask Always after using the washroom.... next time toilet-train during Exercise (Run)....endure and stoppage all nature calls..like beyond 1km...3km...5km... then next time you can endure this route for 16km for just 1 "ultra mask"...for Exercise (Run Ultra!)..😷
