Endomondo Running Workout: was out running 14.94 km in 2h:05m:38s using Endomondo

Second times running barefoot, and this times was 15Km. in fact it was bad idea for newton run as there are too many small rock along the road. Anyhow, still a very good experience.

Date : 16-November-2014
Endomondo Running Workout: was out running 42.89 km in 7h:03m:56s using Endomondo

Personal Worst timing on Full Marathon so far, in fact I crossed 42.195 below 7 hours accordingly to my Garmin, and the route seen to be over distance, and finished in slightly more than 7 hours.
A lot of people complaints about the events, anyway below are mine,
1. lack to distance markers, there are distance markers, but just not enough. some runner ask around how many more Km to go.
2. Over distance, expecting U turn while my Garmin clock 21km, but still have another 300m to go...
3. Finishing line, same finishing line for 42K, 21K, and 10K. Crowded while FM runner coming back, and those 10K runner slow walk to the finishing line.

Tropicana Nite Race 2014 - 3.8Km @ Tropicana Golf and Country Resorts

Date : 06-September-2014
Endomondo Running Workout: was out running 3.75 km in 34m:13s using Endomondo.

There are 7,8Km category for normal runner, while I run on the family category, and therefore only the 1st 9 holes of the golf course. The event did not attract many runner due to clash with other better run events. For those who run 7.8Km, they run the whole 18 holes golf course.

Did not expect on the podium, and got 2nd runner up at last. It was due to the actual 2nd runner up having only 3 runners, which have been dis-qualified. This category require 2 adults and 2 kids, otherwise dis-qualified.

Endomondo Running Workout: was out running 23.40 km in 3h:53m:47s using Endomondo.

I thought my leg had recovered, it is not. Compared it to the newton 25Km, I thought again I should doing it ok. I was wrong, and in fact I walk almost 8-9Km. My stomach already felling well the day before, and I have to put down some weight half way during the run, it was so embarrassing. Took off my shoe at Km15, and hope my leg can do better with bare foot, in fact it is. But, it does not last long, and I have to put back my shoe after barefoot for 4-5Km. At last, cheer from a frequent runner while coming down from the last hill at the junction back to the finishing line, and managed to run-walk the last 2Km.

Endomondo Running Workout was out running 11.53Km km in 1h:37m:55s
Run after CNY, in fact did a run 1 week before in 18Km. Thinking 12Km (already expected under mileage) should be fine for me, and it is not OK at all. My knee started gave me problem after 2Km, and end up walk and run the rest of the 10Km. The good thing I'm running on the most busiest road in KL, and the view was awesome.
