no stamina?

change strategy.....

run to the next water point....

the water pts prolly abt 2.5km apart?

when u reach there....take a sip n walk 2-3 lamp posts....

u r able to lower ur HR n rest ur legs a little...

when u run again.... ur legs will feel fresh...

go try it out during ur training run...

liddat.... i m sure u can easily complete ur 10km within 1hr 30mins :)

Ah, dont worry abt it... 99% of us are there for the fun and to challenge ourselves. Realistically, not many can win the prizes up for grabs, so just relax and enjoy your run.

Also, if you're coming in at about 1.5 hrs, that's not really going to be the slowest in the race, so you're confirmed not to come in last. There are still going to be folks coming in after 2 hours (just check previous race results for 10k)

i oni, so far, ran about 2.2km (according to mapmyrun) at about...... 15mins. but speed will definitely drop from then onwards.

i'm gona try to run 5km tonight.

I totally understand how you feel, as i felt the same for my first 10K run.

Don't worry, you won't be the last to reach the finishing line.

Even if you do, at least you made it to the finishing line! :Big Grin:

Most prob i'll be around you during the GE10K race, as my timing is also around 1.5hr. Haha!!

Don't worry, just go and enjoy the run. :rolleyes:

You can do it. :)

When starting to jog, just take it easy. resist the urge to run too fast too soon. If you can do 2.2km in 15 minutes, aim for 2km in 15 minutes, and this translates to 7.5min/km which is a comfortable jog. You will complete comfortably within 1.5 hours.

If you can, find a pacer or some to run with you.

All the best. with more jogs/runnings, you will be able to find your pace and from there do better.

the human body is very robust. it can take a beating of 10k. so dun worry at all. moreover, you are not a couch potato.

on that day, do whatever to have fun. run, jog, forwards, backwards, sideways, bounce, hop, skip........ remember to smile. have happy thoughts. before you know it, 10k will be over. oh... dun forget to dress up. look stylo, you feel better and faster as well. :cool_grin:

longest timing for 10km run ??? forever !!!

achievement is view in ( a ) training for race, ( b ) toe-ing the starting line, ( c ) good running along race route, ( d ) crossing finishline, ( e ) having to earn good timing ...

belief you are achieving ( a ) and soon ( b ) confidently ...

fast = relative, finishline = absolute

so run the fast that you enjoy - belief you me ... there will be instances whre you will overtake other runners

then when see the finishline - run across that wit joy and remember to smile looking strong for the camera !!!

dont worri bout timing - itz just like $$$ always no end to it !!!?!?!!!

hi there,

my 1st 10km run after years w/o running is 1hr 30 mins...

for me it is not embarassing cuz it is an effort at my end and i accomplish it. u dun like the timing you achieved, then train up 4 it..... n u achieved ur PB

as u run more, u timing will improve dude..

its the satisfaction of the run and being able to completed it made me happy... rest is history dude. we are all different. some pp run fast. some pp run slow. and i am a slow runner.

run your own race n be proud tat u complete it dude

    • Totally agree with your point. Who did free up this person from Mars? GPS watch is not always accurate, especially when running through the high building area, for example Raffles Place/CBD area.
    • I agree. This reminds me of the cartoon about the man and the mule. Here's the SCSM 2019 edition! 
    • Hi Guys, we cannot pleased everybody. Last year when SCSM was held in the morning, there were alot KPKB at FB about JAM in Spore. I rebutted them that this was only 1 year once so why can't they bear with it? In my opinion whether day or night, they will still complain. Since Spore sporting culture is not there, their mindset will always be negative. So simply don't bother to explain.
    • S’pore SEA Games men’s marathon gold medal streak broken.  The marathoners came in 7th and 9th place. Singapore long-distance runners Gordon Lim and Loh Yu Ting came in seventh and ninth place on Dec. 6 morning at the Southeast Asian Games marathon event, marking the end of Singapore’s gold medal streak at the men’s marathon event. It was the first time since 2011 that Singapore failed to obtain a gold medal from the event, nor make it to the podium. Marathoner Mok Ying Ren first struck gold in 2013 at the SEA Games, while athlete Soh Rui Yong continued the gold medal streak in 2015 and 2017. Soh, 27, was not selected to be part of the SEA Games 2019 team in August, despite making up 50 per cent of Singapore’s gold medal haul at track and field events in 2017.         Uncle was proud to be associate with the SA in 2015, as SEA Games Official, on behalf of Asian Athletics Association. Uncle officiated some of the memories of the best efforts of these athletes (due to home ground advantage), included 28th SEA Games Marathon. "At the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore, Liew suddenly found himself leading the 12-strong field in the men’s marathon by about 50m after his rivals missed a U-turn and took the wrong path. He said then that he slowed down to almost a crawl in order to wait for them to catchup. https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/marathoner-ashley-liews-account-act-sportsmanship-2015-sea-games-untrue-claims-gold "Soh eventually claimed the gold medal in 2hr 34min 56sec, while Thailand’s Srisung Boonthung and Hoang Nguyen Thanh of Vietnam finished second and third respectively. Liew’s actions were widely publicised and earned him kudos from many Singaporeans, including a mention by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the National Day Rally two months later. He was recognised by the SNOC in 2016 with a special award for sportsmanship at the Singapore Sports Awards. In October that year, he was awarded the accolade in the category of “Act of Fair Play” by the International Committee for Fairplay, which recognises acts of fair play by athletes or sports teams. However, Soh alleged that Liew’s account of the race — and his act of sportsmanship — was “untrue” in a Facebook post on Sunday. He made the comment after an Oct 13 post by the International Fair Play Committee on their Facebook page, which called Liew a role model for fair play. He wrote: “I was third place in that race when we took the wrong turn. When we turned around perhaps 50m into the wrong turn, Ashley was already running in the other direction. We took quite a while to catch up to him (at least one to two minutes), he certainly did not stop or slow down to wait for us." Uncle officiated some of the best field events also, included High jump women sensation, Michelle Sng - 2015 SEA Games (Bronze), and later 2017 SEA Games ( historic Gold). Any athlete who wins Gold medal, and to stand on the Podium, emotionally, when the National Anthem is played and everyone stands with attention, it is a proud moment for the Country.   Of course, saga of SA and Michelle Sng remained... With Soh out of the 2019 SEA Games, high jumper Michelle Sng is the only defending gold medallist among the athletics squad, who took home eight medals at the last Games (2017). SA, what will be your KIP (we want nothing but Gold Medal) at SEA Games 2019? RunSohFast is definitely a missed "Gold" medalist, based on Soh's PB if show up at SEA Games 2019. Uncle shall update all until of 10 Dec, 2019. Yes, uncle had been with SA for more than 5 years since 2011 - involve in IAAF Level 1 Youth Coach (Athletics) and IAAF Level 1 Technical Official. Aiya, who's who in SA, uncle knows all, saga...Uncle did once talked to Mok Ying Ren (aka Dr Mok, married), he laughed with me that he also got saga with SA (uncle cannot reveal why )...SA is saga-able...uncle also got saga with SA (cannot reveal why also)... RunSohFast....SohRunFaster...SA, you KPI hangs by Sea Games 2019...ahah...how many Medals (minus 1 Gold Medal already)...hopefully not zero!
    • More criticisms - taken from the TODAY’s Facebook page or sent to Voices (TODAY forum page) ‘Selfish’ and ‘ridiculous’: Response from Singapore Marathon organisers on traffic gridlock draws ire I know my opinions may be biased but I find it a little ironical when the comments posted are just as 'selfish and ridiculous' eg. "Suggest Lim Chu Kang or Pulau Ubin", "this boils down to chest-thumping and prestige, without caring for the inconvenience it causes non-participating Singaporeans", "The right thing would be to never hold it again",
