CCR Half Marathon Event

From yesterday’s group half marathon run. First time since summer that I managed to get under 2h. While running I also managed to capture quite some fun video footage, including some random revelers and our support people.

Never mind the Rain

It just keeps raining! This morning at least it was more of a drizzle with bouts of showers, but never the level of un-runnable torrential down pours. Actually quite refreshing. Since the rain is barely visible in photos, I always … Continue reading

Run in the Dark

Since I had been busy with that school thing yesterday, I could not get out for a morning run. So, I did the evening instead. Without a real sunset (thanks to clouds) it turned dark quite quickly, and while there … Continue reading

Speed Session at 5AM + another 11K

It’s tricky to get to the early morning speed session on Wednesdays. I.e. last week Ritsu was traveling and I just don’t think Julius is mature enough to get himself out of bed and ready for school in time without … Continue reading

Rain Run Puddle Dance

It just keeps raining. Mornings, evenings … sometimes all day. Tricky to carve out the best time slot for a run. This morning looked like it would get better for a bit, but it started again, just as I started … Continue reading

Sunset Walk with Junior

It’s rare these days that I get him out of the house for a walk. But last night we were rewarded with this very spectacular sunset. (And scores of Chinese tourists taking pictures of it 😉 )

Snake on a trail

And just when I thought I was aware of all potential dangers while running, I come across this SNAKE! Not sure if it was dead or alive, but I was also not too keen on finding out. This was a … Continue reading

Long Z2 run

Yesterday I learnt a lot about how beneficial ‘slow’ runs can be, keeping my heart rate in Z2, roughly under 150BPM in my case. My pride has hindered me from letting my pace drop under 6min/km. Even though I know … Continue reading
