So our school PE teachers have to be at least certified Level 1? Great Uncle is working doing what you enjoy.

PE teacher does not need to be certified as Coach....just need to attend NIE course in PE...and PE teachers are not coaches...but some that uncle knew were ex-SAF IPPT Instructor...which uncle only recognise in SAF, but never in IAAF World Athletics..."aiyoh, you can run better than my grandmother"... uncle doesn't know what running school is that from...maybe their grandmothers teach all SAF IPPT Instructors how to run like "grandmothers"... 

uncle is a passionate recreation sports club tri/running coach free lah!...but full time..no need to say...anything Codes and Techy...uncle say...so so lah...

defintely, ALL SG Coach [Run] must be Certified at Least Level 1...

because all you call...Coach like this one...

coache818636df6465d26.md.jpg

if not certified from Level 1, 2 or 3... job title is Coach, but in uncle's IAAF's List of National Affliates [such as Singapore Athletics], we don't recognize the title...and National Registry of Coaches [SG - Coach] will never even qualify him as one...

Of course, in many forum threads...call this Coach A, call that Coach B...is just a respectful title..

SG - Coach [NROC] and IAAF-certified Coach all have respective Code of Conduct, Sports Ethics and Must always stay relevant to Sports Science. 

Hence, you are right to say SG Coach is a licensed coach because if the person is a Running Coach, the person must be certified with at least IAAF [World Athletic] Level 1 and be a SG Coach.

Yes, uncle aka ex-SG Coach because cheapskate uncle no money to renew with the conditions uncle also attend courses recommended by NROC and pay $$$....so uncle "broke"...no money to renew...and besides Covid-19...those who coach...how to make income with social distancing especially during CB 1...uncle knows of many...eat grass..but luckily Gov. subsidy of for the next 9 months....got some grass to feed their families..[Read Covid 19 and Its impact on Races) 

Holding an IAAF level 1 Coaching Certificate...uncle can register with any National Affliates of the World Athletics...countries like USA, Australia, Canada and others... upon approval...uncle will get title Coach uncle...not for respect, but as an honourable certified one, internationally recognised Sports Coaching Professional for Run.

Aiyah, got so many titles for uncle for what? simply uncle will do...

Please don't after uncle's sharing...challenge running coaches...are you qualified and certified like uncle or not?...let them who are passion, good and if that is income making for them...call them coach respectfully and pay $$$ for their services lah...everyone needs to earn a living...right?

No problem. Glad our efforts for sgRunner team were not wasted after all. Sorry my 7+min/km pacing means we couldn't get a sub 5 hr timing.

Now that this Ekiden experience is coming to a close, it's time to focus on the 19km run this weekend and 31km double down finale next weekend.

Any run is a good run, bro and thanks, we shall be going to SCSM [Grand Finale] and show our results at SCSM [Grand Finale] forum thread.

As Team Captain of sgRunner2020, sgRunner and sgRunnersUnited, we say Thank You to @beast and @starfinder for completing their best efforts in 2020 of World's Ekiden Marathon Challenge vs The Rest of the World's Best Elites.

Because of Covid-19, when all races are cancelled, we could still race as One United sgRunners, it is really unbelievable many months ago but it is very true, we did it like in place run, remotely, but, remained contactable in Runkeeper apps.

btw, @beast, seeing the way you prepare your race, a thorough Preparation of Tasks in marking out your Course Distance of Race Route, Practice the Runs, and Completing the Distance with Real Best Efforts...

 appd76b30a490b62b1e.jpg

uncle thinks you can easily reach beyond 150KM by next week...

Maybe, you can consider SHIOK! 200 KM VIRTUAL CHALLENGE and beyond...

If uncle worked as hard as you...from 300KM on Monday...should be inspired to attempt reaching sebei shiok! Half-Thousand by end of December.

Let's move on, the Virtual Races ahead are longer, more endured and challenging.¬†ūüĎƬ†

I only ran the required mileage as per SCSM's virtual run challenges. That means a 10km on weekday, and both the VR runs on weekends. That's about 30km average per week.

After the SCSM Finale I am going to decrease my mileage to about just 10 to 20km a week. Want to devote some time to going back for some casual swimming and gym.

AR ones, not interested...if can do VR 10KM and VR21KM again, because last time VR9 [Bonus Up!] even if you do VR9 [9KM] and VR {11KM], they took the timing and updated at VR [Bonus Up!] only...

Anyway, good luck to those...93KM..

uncle registered and is ready for 88.88KM...

    • 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.¬†ūüėĄ¬†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¬†ūüėÉ 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¬†
    • that OSIM chair for SOH's use as gaming chair.. Well-Being Chair...SOH's for healthy lifestyle...gaming. ¬†
