I can borrow an elliptical machine. Not quite the same as a treadmill but will be my backup

once you have the elliptical machine...Zwift Academy Tri: Run Workout 4 on Strava app...

and make sure you are in a super-cool facility or room...

and get a mop to wipe your pool of sweat...and need to sanitize your equipments...because of covid-19...

After seeing all these AR requirement which I can't meet, I decide to forgo all their VR runs..  I have already stop participating any of their events since last weeks,

The only way to do the AR run here in Singapore is to book the proper equipment at ActiveSG gyms, which they have set up at selected gyms and booking of timings is required. Otherwise nobody would bother to get the complicated gear on their own just to do this AR run. In the end, it is just a overhyped gimmick which only a handful of people will get to experience.

Well, this VR thing is an interesting twist... wasn't there an exhibit booth like this at one SCSM expo some time back?

Frankly however, I shun all the apps, etc.

I stick to the basics (running shoes+ shorts+ technical fabric top + put one foot in front of the other & repeat) and that's all I need!

Oh, alright, I'll concede one technological compromise though, and that's a GPS watch that can last at least 12 hrs in run mode. 😜 No MP3 players, bluetooth, or touchscreen features either, just time + distance reading's fine.

for us who are Triathletes in IM Virtual Race...this setup is a must during pandemic period...home-based...

ZWIFT.jpg

for runners who during the cold and harsh winter months...Left...and bikers...Right..

IM Virtual Race Series 1 - XX...Run <Swim> - Bike - Run (Triathlon/Biathlon)...Global...

Eg...

Bike Leg of IM VR32 South Africa...

those in Oceania/Asia... you must sign up for this ride on ROUVY 7am..because Virtual Ride Race (competition)...starts 7am

must.jpg

actually, uncle already said...what's the AR Run big deal experience actually for Local Tropical Climate all-season which is hot-sun-wet-humid all year round....do you know that...you need super cool freezing temperature to keep you cool during the workouts..."cleaned and sanitzed".... 

If Full IM 42KM on Run... Full 180.25 km on Bike...how much of your sweat do you think enough to "flood" your home-based AR Run/Bike...on Local Indoor Temperature without a proper cooling system...

The only way to do the AR run here in Singapore is to book the proper equipment at ActiveSG gyms, which they have set up at selected gyms and booking of timings is required.

Please excuse uncle...no need AR run to go 42K Run...STGR Virtual Marathon starts soon...7am..Rain or Shine...always Humid..JustRunLah!...Anytime Anyplace...👌

Ok. I did a slow 5k yesterday (00:36:04) but just used an ordinary digital watch, so without a recording, I guess that doesn't count! 😓

Then I followed it up with a 21km jog today, also at a gentle pace:

1776906800_21kmeasyjog.thumb.jpg.cf20cc71f66fe99ea2b8d20ec65b12e4.jpg

The Soleus Turbo's display was set on chrono, km distance and split (i.e. "Lap 01").

I'd like to enourage everyone here in SG runners to join in also. Don't worry iabout being fast or slow, or whether you run a mile, a marathon or an ultra. As far as I'm concerned, we're ALL runners. There are no races for the time being anyway, so simply enjoy the journey, and share your joy of running. 🥰

Sure bro, uncle also will be ending 2020 with Virtual Races with Medals...rest and recover well heading to 2021 [we are still in Covid-19 pandemic]...

Now are you convinced, because of Covid-19 in 2020, why everyone has become Virtual Race Runner or Virtual Challenge Runner or *AR (Rouvy) Runner

*AR (Rouvy) Run is an alternative to Swim Leg in IM Virtual Race...(Run) - Bike - Run...that is an IM Virtual Race format.

Uncle wishes all, the very best to 2020 SCSM [Grand Finale], Happy Thanksgiving Week also.

Announcement: This will also be uncle's farewell from this Forum, as explained, uncle shall cease to have any Social Media contact while returning to SA to serve as National Technical Official for Singapore Athletics. Because when the next SCSM comes next year, if it is no longer a VR Edition, uncle shall serve as SA (World Athletics) Road Race Official/Umpire instead. 

Thank you for the all the memories of once We were One sgRunners United.

Goodbye.

    • that is good.... a goal setting right from the start of 2021 and chiong for it...
    • maybe from uncle's perspectives on virtual events (locally and globally)... yes, must agree with @beast, this Virtual Event is very much for those who are newbie runners (who may want to upgrade from brisk walk to run)...21KM in 1 month (very generous)...depends on individuals... given that the race is virtual, again agree with @beast, the organizer must bear the cost (inclusive as participation fee)...if this is covid-19 social distancing measures, participants have the rights to have "items as specified to be delivered"... and if the shipping cost (add-on) is not preferred, it is as good as user will consider if participation is necessary... from uncle's observation, the reason why if the organizer wants you to pick up is "shopping" at their stores...marketing gimmicks...in most virtual races uncle had participated, uncle browse "Store/Shop" online, and if want add-ons, just top-up and find out, what will be the reasonable "shipment cost"...of course, expect FOC lah...again if not satisfy..then no need to "buy" online or even register "online" for the event. Example for JustRunLah!Connect Virtual Race event...$18.88 2 months to complete 18.88KM or 88.88KM (very generous)... the only difference is the participation fee included Shipping..which will expect the organizer to inform participants (from 5 February 2021...expect to deliver and to receive...otherwise email...) because 2021 is still "covid-19 pandemic" like 2020.. better to stay home, stay safe, stay strong, and remain "Virtual Run" in Run (Exercise) program...👌
