I'm very sure he was boosted by girlfriend Dinah Chan's triumph yesterday. Considering his personal best 2:26 was done in 14 degrees, today's 2:28 is a fantastic achievement under a different weather. A far cry from his SCM time 2:58 two weeks ago. Maybe he purposely did so to throw his rivals off guard.

    • Maybe uncle can share monthly quantity of runs daily, weekly and daily in 2021... on the Leaderboard "Challenge"... you will notice... uncle is "catching" the top participants...mere HM and FM efforts to catch them...while almost 7,000 are "chasing" uncle... since uncle was previously ranked 3rd in April, so you will notice that for the month of May, uncle will be ranked negatively or postively from the absolute "3rd" position... Those that has sudden risen to the Top 10, look at the +1K or +308, uncle shall place these participants as "dubious", and will expect them if they will be still be competitive in May, they must be consistent, like uncle. This is a just silly "competitive" daily tasks that uncle enjoys, motivation to why HM and FM efforts are the runs to remain in Top 10 always. Another one is uncle's calendar for May...  now you can see... uncle must chong another 450KM to make the challenge "700KM" in May a reality, say you can do, show that you can do, complete and finish the "700KM"...to sustain the "3rd Position" in April to be "3rd Position" in May...because uncle hates to see "RED -ve" that is all...😃
    • that OSIM chair for SOH's use as gaming chair.. Well-Being Chair...SOH's for healthy lifestyle...gaming.  
    • what a photo that you managed to find after i mentioned on the gaming chair,.... hahaha
    • siong... it will take me a while to complete what u can complete in a month... hahah
    • uncle happened to come across this event...150KM or if closer to 160KM (100 miles)...     open till end of 2021...😄 same theme with Round Singapore or Around Singapore or Singapore Round Island.. As long as this is Virtual, Anytime Anyplace, realistically, can you even cover 10KM Challenge or more per day? uncle can. 50KM/160KM is 100 Miles, can you cover in 2 weeks? uncle can. 500KM, can you cover in 2 months? uncle can cover in 1 month. 2,021KM in 1 year? uncle can cover 6,000KM in 1 year. This is just Quantity in Distance Challenge lah...simply if you are registered in SCSM Virtual Club, simply participate in these weekly challenges and virtual races for free, you are motivated to be in the Leaderboard Ranking for free. like what uncle did in April with other 10K VR members who started to accummulate their distances and points...till the last day of the month.. Whether Team Challenge for 100 members or more to do 1680KM...you just need 3 Koh Papa <FOC> to achieve and accomplish...Bronze level. Aiya, uncle already rewarded self with this one... because this is achievable in 2021...and wish there was a Medal for 7,000KM. Now that will be a Real Challenge for uncle. That Challenge will be good enough for GOLD level for this event, right? 🤣
