Not to worry spencer, like what Ultra had said to us before, what goes up must come down.....so every up slope there sure will be a down slope.......then when going down, you can relax liao ma....

I recall when I ran RUN NUS.. the down slope caused me suffered from ITBS.. so it's not so relax afterall.. :unsure:

arlo friend, up-slope you can chiong, but down-slope please be easy on your legs.

I agree... down-slope is the most damaging to our legs!!! Eh... expecially Vigilante Drive... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DON'T RUN DOWN!!! *phew*

yah yah.. nowaday i reserved when running down slope.. :Big Grin:

Thanks for the run yesterday.. enjoyed myself but quite siong on the upslope.. not too sure if I could handle GE30K.. :Praying:

Here's some of the pic took: SAFRA MF

u can do the GE30 km slopes :) they are quite fun :D

i quote my old man. "there is no flat at GE 30km. it is either an up slope or a down slope"

hahahaha....

HaHa. Ya I remember he says the same thing to me as well after we all resting there.

But they got free flow food. :P

Just to entice those who're still sitting on the fence (fatbirds can't, unfortunately. They tend to roll to either side..) :

Last i counted, there was..

-Powerbar recovery drink

-Cendol

-Tauhuey

-Pau

-Water

AND of course there's the customary post-run makan.. One year we all went to a hotel for jap buffet. Should we do it again?

Dream! DO! where art thou!

this time I want to try the Chendol....so much food previously that I didn't have a chance to :whistle:

Just heard from someone that Shangri-la international buffet at 90riinggit is even more sedap than the Equatorial Jap....and dress-code is informal too.

Since its informal it makes it even more appealing!

But 90 ringit is slightly more expensive than the equatorial one i think?

The local running calendar in 2009 looks set to be another exciting one, from the 2nd rendition of the Sundown Ultra-Marathon to the SCKL Marathon in June and of course the year-end SCSM, interspersed with many intermediate-distance events like the NewtonActive Run, Shape Run, Human Race Run, AHM, et al.

To prepare runners (esp. the new ones) for some of these events, we are exploring the possibility of getting together for weekly base training workouts of briskwalk-jog-run on weekends eg. Friday evenings, Sat mornings at ECP, Sunday morning LSDs at various locations islandwide. Those who are keen to join in please keep a lookout for announcements and discussions in Team FatBird's facebook or in the BLOG.

Let's look forward to yet another exciting year of runs and fellowship.

Cheers!

Good weather, nice turnout of 22 runners....many were back from SCSM08 to start up again

Met many other groups like David Tay's, too family, sgrunners, wee, all out ramping up their mileage :)

FatBirdz & Frenz were chatting about upcoming Sundown preparations, and egging one another to go for it...seems like we will have to prepare for more regular runs...

this morning was not my day....I was hit so bad by diarrhoea, and lost so much water, that I hit the 'wall' at the 10km mark....my legs felt like jelly, and I was reduced to walking 1km, running 200m....wahsey, the worst feeling I have felt in a long time...

Thanks to the group for waiting for me patiently, and showing concern....apologies I could not join you all for the sumptuous makan, as my stomach was churning real bad...I am feeling slightly better now (at home), but still feeling weak.....it is not any of the CNY cookies/bak kwa as my family all seem fine....hope I recover in time for the big reunion meal tomorrow...

all said, a good run for the whole group....cya all at the River Hong-Bao i-RUN next Thursday (Jan29)...cheers!

    • 💪💪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...
