Newton 15km - Time To Taper
Rain stopped when I left home but then it rained again when I reach Puchong. The race was still carried on though. Took my bib and warm up a little then the race started. Knowing that my form wasn't great and the route was hilly, I set my target pace to 4:40. It should be moderate hard effort but I think I over estimated myself, the last 4km wasn't as "easy" as what I expected. I just wanted to maintain the even pace but it wasn't as easy. I had to run close to my max. HR spiked up to 92~94% of my max! Finally I reach the finish line with the time of 1:06:06, GPS was 14.38km, under distance a little bit. But not too bad, I'm quite satisfied.
|Bud, hope I can keep up with him in the SCKLM!|
|Vincent, long time no see! Welcome back to the running community!|
|Wind Runnres, we have quite a number of podium runners today!|
It was a smart decision that the organizer changed the race to 2 weeks before the SCKLM, it used to be held in December. So this time many runners took this as the last chance for the long run training. Most of the runners was in superb form and did very well! OK, that's it, last race for me before the SCKLM, see you guys again 2 week later!
