You bring a whole new definition to the term "Relative".

Really leh. "Too much" is definitely relative here.

Our Road runner is a different league of gifted runner beyond any typical marathoner. Very fit and strong! :smilie_daumen1:

I'm grateful to have the advices from the sifus like ultra. That still alot for me to learn and improve on, and hopefully i can achieve my dream PB in 5 years time.

sub 3 hours.

I am just an old bone sharing my limited knowledge and tips and hopefully it can help to add value to the running community. Other runners such as Dreamrunner and DO etc have done more than I in other aspects and they are more committed. :smilie_daumen1:

It was a nice run with you guys. Too bad I have to rush off to work and only managed to complete about 14km. Will try to join more runs in future.

For those who are joining the run, please eat and drink adequately to prevent any malfunction during the run. Avoid any unnecessarily hiccup or malfunction continuously from now till next few weeks as it can affect not only your physical self but also your psychological mind to run well on the actual day.

From now on, be alert to prevent injury and malfunction in your training.

Cheers.

Hi msmurf,

I typically have a net like belt or fuel belt. Get the smaller box or pour it in the plastic bag, whichever is handy and easy for you to carry. Remember to sip some water after eating.

I am not a fast runner, I am just adopting constant pace. One day you shall be better and stronger than I if your passion of running is with you. Running is not just about run blindly...its a whole school of knowledge covering food, lifestyle, postures, techniques, humble character, techno attires etc etc. And I am still learning from one another.

Cheers.

Just put in your best effort and come race day, you should be prepared, not to worry too much. Sometimes it's good to take a short break and come back fresh to run stronger and harder.

Just a random note:

The "battle" in a marathon begins after the 21km mark i.e. the 1st 21k should feel pretty easy and comfortable.

All the best to all in yr training in the run-up to SCSM.... 6 weeks to go!!!

what? i thought they say the race starts at 30k?

For some of us mortals, it starts at 21km mah...

I think I am nearer to Earth... started after abt 15km for me...

It's basically another source of energy. Rasins are just more natural, with some vitamins, and its real food, and easy to carry around. I've known people to use chocolate bars, too.

Personally for my long rides i use figs. (:

yeah i like them because they are dry and taste like sugar (which is my second favourite food)

but i normally take with cereal (frootloops)

oh and raisins contain iron and improve bloody count, which is a good thing for runners..

If I am not mistaken, there is a monthly promotion at NTUC (valid till 31 Oct) which can last you for a few LSD training for just the price of 1 packet of power gel. :)

I can foresee the sales of raisins going up. I bought the white box yellow raisins. The raisins not only contains sugar, but sodium and potassium as well.

    • 💪💪POWER~~~~ I salute you sir~~ 👍👍👍
    • Was looking forward to the actual run as I've never participated in this event before. Completed the 21km virtual run yesterday. Initially thought was only given 2 weeks to upload result which would be unfairly difficult given the short notice if one has not been running regularly. Fortunately, I've been running 21km every weekend since March. First time did 2x 21km within 4 days. Thankfully my Plantar Fasciitis is still holding up.
    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done 👍   Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong, can apply.    I scare scare, should I call? 
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why??? 🤔 Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of 27-33C, his jaw dropped...
