of course it’s about me again! This is my blog! hahahaha! How did all these business of running come about? It’s from my beloved Ta Jia! Yes! Ta Jia is definitely a better runner than I am. When we were teenagers, she used to run outside the house, hehe, being the kepo sister, ahem.. I followed her. Then eventually the whole family started running except for Daddy. hahahaa, you guys know his size, so I think I need to explain that. My mummy is a runner too. Last year, we ran 5 km and at the age of 51, her timing was slightly more than me only. Paiseh! Due to her injuries, she can no longer run like she used to be but I am doing my best to get her ankle X-ray and fix the problem so she can run with me again!
Initially, my sis thought, wah! Not bad le this little sis can complete a marathon, until she realised, it is only 10km =))=))=)) Honestly, even though I can proudly say that I completed 10km in 1H 12Min but the training wasn’t easy!
When I run on the treadmill, I need to have my left knee wrapped! When you trained most of the time, running on treadmill becomes a boredom. You need to constantly keep yourself motivated! On a really bad day, you still need to train and normally I will push for 5km walking. When you train so hard and put all your heart into it, treadmill becomes your best friend.
I love this treadmill so much. When I train, it must be at least 1H 30min, so even if I woke up 5 in the morning to jog, it will still be to dark to run outside and I can only run at 4 pm in the afternoon during public holidays and weekends. I must time myself to come home in time before it is too dark! I really dont think I wil be able to complete the 1/4 marathon if not because of my treadmill. The first time I completed on treadmill 1H 45Min, my legs were numb. After each training session, all you could think of is hit the fridge and find something to eat. You just eat and eat non stop! After the meal, I can’t even sit straight and I am just to tired to do anything else. Miow Chin ever told me, needs training! I really understand what she means. I can imagine those people training for full marathon and I saw Miow Chin’s friend completed Singapore Sundown 84km!!!! Wah!!! I really2 salute u!!!
Hehe, Ta Jia said most of the marathoners are in their mid 30s because they run all their lives! This really keeps me motivated! Even though my body can’t push for 1/2 marathon in Novemember but I really2 hope on day, I will be proud to hold my full marathon finisher medal! * yeah*yeah* dancing* dancing
