THE WORLD ATHLETICS CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIP, BATHURST 21 GLOBAL CHALLENGE (1 FEBRUARY - 21 MARCH 2021)

Recommended Posts

@kohpapaI see sgRunner still have 1 Leg 4 unassigned. Can you assigned that leg for me so that I can help complete it?

As for Team sgRunnersUnited, I am OK to take on another leg of 5km or 7.2km. Don't think I want to attempt 10km at a more competitive pace...

Team sgRunner [Mixed], the race has begun...

Leg 1 and Leg 2 have completed...Leg 4 [5K] is not assigned...please register by Monday evening...otherwise, uncle shall register and complete by Tuesday.

Again, even though many Teams have registered, but Complete as Teams are not many...counted so far...less than 100.

As long as we are United and Complete as a Team, we are already top 100.

Team sgRunnersUnited (Mixed) shall start from Thursday. Leg 1: 5K we shall have @Lady Ice [UK Time] to start.

Note: Challenge for 10K for those who have not attempted. Just go for it. Don't worry. We have 3 Teams to be considered for Ranking. 1 of them is already top 50. We just want to have fun and see if all 3 can be at least in top 100 [more or less confirmed by merely Completion]

Any unassigned Legs in Team sgRunnersUnited (Mixed), uncle will gladly take over by latest this coming Saturday night. Nov 22 is the last day. So encourage Friends, if you can do 2 Legs, why not challenge yourself also.

10km Run completed - very wet, very muddy. It has been raining a lot. Shoes very wet. Thank goodness there are holes in my shoes.... though got a little to much mud in them at one pointimage.thumb.jpeg.812b8736693a95801c2bbe807224a10e.jpeg

yes, sotong @Lady Ice, we see water [wet, very muddy]

Weather since yesterday [SG 11am onwards]...

weatherffb6e408c5ed89f2.jpg

every member would expect that, if there should be wet weather for the whole week, there is possibly:

1. Delay your run until a drier day.
2. Run slowly and face the Rain headstrong.
3. No Run if the week is completely wet.

let uncle shared the Sunday yesterday weather...

Hot in the early morning...wet after that...

42.2KM Marathon Virtual Race (Rain or Shine):

Morning great run...

uncle being cheered by...chickens

greeted by otters...

2 hours later...

Run slowly and face the Monsoonal Rain headstrong... 

Uncle's road run shoe sole wet and came off just 10KM away from uncle's home base stn [charging of battery, hydration and nutrition]

uncle's favourite Nike vaporfly next %....carbon-added sole dropped off...

shoe.jpg

and replace with trail running shoes. 

Cut-off time of 8-hour (7am - 3pm). Just Complete.

10KM Ekiden Virtual Race - @Lady Ice sharing....Just Complete.

Team sgRunner2020 [Completed] with Top 50 Ekiden World of Elites.
Team sgRunner [To be Completed soon] because we have a Full Team.
Team sgRunnersUnited - Unassigned Legs are still available. This one has Challenges offered in 10K. Challenge - Longer Distance in 10K [Endurance] and Faster Time in 5K. It is also a Challenge if you can also take 2 Legs and run within 3-day.

Safety: No Run if the week is completely wet. Better be Safe..

During Covid-19, when all run races are cancelled, only virtual races are offered, they are actually real run virtually/globally, if you complete the Challenge. Statistically, 2 out of 3 Virtual Races....Never Complete, the Challenge is To Complete.

The best is - these Virtual Race Challenges are FOC and we are one of the World' Elites Team for Virtual Ekiden Marathon Team Challenge. 😄

Enjoy the fun and Complete the Challenge.

After that...you should be ready for SCSM [Grand Finale] coming next Friday after this week...

yes, @beast , Own Time Own Timing...if @starfinder you decide... you can start anytime anyplace...from now...if you are ready and the weather looks great today...

status.jpg

we have a completed Team sgRunner...so we can have a Team Result soon...

again we must give every Team Member proper time to rest, recover and have their own personal commitments....especially on individual Essential Tasks, Commitments and Issues to be settled on weekdays.

Thursday [UK Evening Time] is actually Friday [Morning]...So we must give @Lady Ice, a priority on herself...that is why...Thursday should be a recommendation...

Weekend is coming and some of us also have SCSM Virtual Race warmups...especially if SCSM [Grand Finale] is starting from next week...yes, there are some here who are doing Double UP! Challenge is [21KM + 10KM].

Quote

Sure. I will do the run tomorrow or wed, when the weather permits.

so just go for the "feel"...if you can do it today...just chong lah!...

for uncle just another 10 KM in next 4 hours is 300 KM for November...and for you are on path to 100 KM monthly achievement...👍

@kohpapa Uncle, I think we may not hit top 100 in overall ranking. But top 10 in teams from Singapore still possible lah.

aiyo.. the race has not ended...

importantly, when Covid-19 when all races are cancelled...we can still talk about to be in top 100 World's Best Ekiden Marathon Challenge today...

remember Covid-19 Challenge months ago...SCSM Virtual Club (mid-Sept)...and now ASICS World Ekiden 2020 (1-week old)

Next week SCSM [Grand Finale]...are you ready to take on SCSM GF [10KM], SCSM GF [21KM] or SCSM GF [Double Up!]..

most of us are preparing for that one... 5KM, 10KM and 7.125KM are just merely warmups...

just have fun lah! bro...Just Complete a Virtual Race. Most of the Other Teams cannot even complete...some cannot even get started...

Attention : Team sgRunner. It seems like after completing 10KM of Leg 5, the Race Roster has refused to update. 

not-counted.jpg

uncle believed that might be an "infringement"...2 days ago, uncle did this Leg 5, and had an incomplete at 7KM. Thinking back, the system may have override the previous one today. So, we may have a DNQ status, sorry Team. So, we may have to call off and suspend further runs to Team sgRunner.

Let's focus on Team sgRunnersUnited (Mixed). Even though we can start anytime anyplace. but, we must not commit any "technical fault" based on uncle's experience on error do not Stop when not completing the required distance.

Rest well, we deserve a Global Top 100 ranking right now and we can even do better.

The weather was very hot and humid today, so Virtual Race is very real, we cannot control time and weather pattern. We just have to complete and Stop only when the Distance is completed.

Uncle will take a recovery Rest on Tuesday and Wednesday. If anyone of you are ready, OTOT.

Run only for Team sgRunnersUnited👍

We shall remain anonymous this time, because The World's Elites are watching us. They are "spying" on our sotong legs especially the speedo sotong one...  @AutumnRunner ...

Uncle, how to have complete when you finished at 10 km? Don't really understand but at least we have 1 team already completed.

Saw SStar Fitness have several teams and their timings are quite good.

    • Uncle shall open up this Challenge to ALL, as Team Captain. Everyone must have read about this Challenge. It is about Individual mileage contributing to Team Total mileage. Simply show uncle your "smugly" monthly mileage. Then at least we will know each team member's contribution to the Team Total mileage. Bronze, Silver or Gold Level You already must have known what's our desired Target. Please read Challenge Terms and Conditions.  As Team Captain, uncle's contribution will be 700KM. What then will be yours? PM uncle if interested. We have until 4 June 2359 for Registration. But, the countdown on the Individual/Team mileage starts from 25 May. Meaning, any running activities from 25 May can be counted as both Individual and Team Mileage. Talk is cheap, so if discussion and sharing can be focussed on you actually have the determination on yourself (both mind and physical) to take up the Challenge, then just reply or contribute positively and constructively, here. @sandy620, do you want to be in this Challenge, since you started this thread? * Virtual Challege is about "Mind" vs "Physical" because you are practically DIY on your journey to say, "Why Not?" 😀   you need to sync your running app or like uncle, a smart watch Garmin already...     Team Name: sgRunners...PM uncle (already smug enough) so when are you "smug" enough to join...just need 25KM to get the tee..we just aim for 1680KM Bronze Level...that's all 😃
    • everyone has their own goal and aspiration... of course, motivation is same as running in a race...how do you feel to run "slower in distance" while many runners chong "faster in distance" than you...they sure feel "smug" of enduring and faster while you will feel "smug" less with fatigue and slowness... uncle admires @autumnrunner because he had injury last year in 2020, and he has shown the interest to pick up where he left off...and we know he wants to make a comeback...and we must respect all who can and those who need to be motivated and comeback in 2021...for 2020 has been a "washout" year for all... from knowing @autumnrunner... he has been always a great endurance runner (talented)...having being overseas marathons (has shared of great experiences from his blogs), and uncle is sure, he can make a comeback during Covid-19 in 2021... running quantity is a great sure way to build the foundation for a better quality in endurance running capability... so @autumrunner... you can make a greater comeback with uncle (sharing with challenges in Virtual Races/Challenges, and some are affordable)...and don't forget, if there should be a Team Relay Marathon Event (virtual or physical run), you should be ready to say "Yes". right? Leaderboard motivation is "not smugly" way to show off... in fact, that is an intrinsic motivation with the "mind" of unlimited distance more than the "physical" of achieving the impossible distance...that is, if everyone can do it, why not, challenge yourself...use "mind over physical".. uncle got to motivate Team sgRunners too..."why not!"...in the Team Events (Ekiden and Global Cross-Country Virtual Race)..."even if we were never be the Elites!"...but we did it!...like the Elites!!...by Just Do Your Very Best!!! Btw, uncle has invited (private chat) Sandy (thread starter) to join us for 10KM Team Relay to see if she is able to join a Team...perhaps, @autumnrunner will you want to join us as Team Member, if are you ready. The Global Cross Country 10KM Team Relay has been extended 31 May. 10KM for Sandy is great enough distance for her...no need what 1680KM challenge...with 100 members...that is what the organizer wants...profit with quantity participation....but you DIY and sponsor in your runs..haha.. Uncle has once (with Lady Ice) invited privately with weeks of running recruitment drives/chat groups to almost ALL in this forum for Global 10KM Virtual Race for Team Members, and respecting why you didn't respond, and accepting reasons why you cannot participate. "Have not been running lately". That was in February. So what is today, May? If you are keen and ready, you are invited. Just PM uncle. When is the best time to pick up running for Physical Run races, because Covid-19 seems to be not over, and already we are moving on to the 2nd Anniversary of Covid-19, with the current knowledge that there is a new variant that is even more infectious. When all races (mass events) are cancelled because of Covid-19 in 2020. Uncle had just received from Singapore Athletics that this month's Local Race (Run Competition) for Pre-SEA Games Selection will have to be cancelled due to tighter Covid-19 measures. First time in 2021. July will be the likely date as announced on their run calendar.  Don't stop your brisk walking, jogging or running activities. Try try any distance...do 1KM..2KM..5km...50km....500km....5000km...clocked them with your running app...daily, weekly or monthly for those who are able...just move on according to your "smugly" ability. "Dubious" running activities are for those who are Riding/Skate Boarding/PMD...just remember to set these activities as "Riding" mode on your Running App and not "Running" records.  All of you, once you were able to do HM and FM during the normal days of Pre Covid-19, so don't stop believing that you can't do these distances during Covid-19. To sgRunnerTeam members who did 10KM Team Relay with Uncle, can you stretch beyond 10KM and run Xtra distance than 10KM...16KM is the great wall of china for HM...Challenge yourself to break it (that took uncle weeks) and surely you will be motivated with a HM Virtual Race/Challenge like the 2XU 21K RUN aka CHALLENGE (6 Max Times Challenge). Otherwise, look for Overseas Virtual "smugly" ones..some come with nice race packs and great medals too...you must earn them as both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. "Smugly", if uncle could do HM, FM or Ultra Challenge, why can't you. 😄 Suely @autumrunner is already a "smug" believer of Virtual Races/Challenges, Just Go for it! Anyone "smug" enough to join uncle for any Virtual Race/Challenge, just PM uncle.  
    • Don't have to compare what you can accomplish with others.  We all lead very different lives, and some people have more time to do what they are passionate about, others not so much. If you only have time to run 50km a month, that's good also. If you can run 500km a month, fantastic, but that's not a bragging right because those who can't clock as much mileage as you do have other more important commitments in life. Life is unfair like that, but that's how the way it goes. Most importantly is to have some time out to stay healthy. Be it 500km or 50km a month. Don't have to feel bad clocking a lower mileage, or feel smug clocking a higher mileage than others.
    • Maybe uncle shares quantity of runs for monthly, weekly and daily in 2021... on the Leaderboard "Challenge"...you shall start to see 10K+ participants joining for end-of-the-month.. 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 "monitor" and expect them if they will be still be competitive in May. They must be consistent, like uncle, otherwise, they are simply "flute" cases...meaning on non-run activities such as biking or boarding... This is a just silly "competitive" daily tasks that uncle enjoys, motivation to why HM and FM efforts are the best runs to remain in Top 10 always. Another one is uncle's calendar for May...besides FM Virtual Races...  now you can see... uncle must chong another 450KM from today to make the challenge "700KM" in May 21 a reality. You say you can do, show the results that you can do, complete and finish the "700KM" Monthly Challenge you can do...and sustain the "3rd Position" in April to be also "3rd Position" in May...because uncle will be disappointed to see "RED -ve" that is all...as motivational "push" factor 😃 Update: uncle just recollected in 2020...reported this on the eve of 2020... consistency...determination....perseverance...nothing is impossible.. so where is the top 3 participants of Dec 2020...especially Deric Lau...1660KM....dubiously, Missing In Action in 2021
