Recreational Running


Recommended Posts

Any casual recreational running kakis in Queenstown Strathmore area?

 

Not those who can run 10km under 50mins or half-marathon or full marathon kind. hahaha...

 

I am just an uncle doing casual recreational runs at the Alexandra PCN and end up doing some exercises at Queenstown Stadium to keep my fit and maintain for able to pass my IPPT (not get Gold for IPPT). hahaha...

Wah, really inspiring to read some of the posts here and see how some of you can manage to run such long distances on your own.

 

I've had my fair share of running experience, and truthfully, it's really a chore for me.

 

My most consistent running period was with a number of buddies at MacRitchie reservoir - on Mondays, Weds and Fris. They're really seasoned runners, and they run at least 13-15km each time, and on Fridays, they run much much longer.

 

My vendor introduced me to this running group, and got me running.

 

And after only three weeks, I was able to run 10km within an hour. Which was a real FEAT for me, considering I don't run at all!

 

Now, it's been several years, and I'm trying to run again. I do run at times, alone. Never the same. It's so boring, and I tend to walk and jog, and walk and jog, and then finish my run quickly, after only about 2.5 km.

 

Sigh... looking for something to inspire me.

 

Any running kakis at Kovan?

 

Maybe one tip to prolong your running. Try running a loop that completes 10 km. by the time u feel bored, hopefully you'll find it in you to might as well complete the loop rather than turning back.. That's what I do. From Tiong bahru to Henderson then back.

Ride fast..ride safe..don't crash...

I agree with you.

 

That is what I do...

 

I always run the whole loop of the Alexandra PCN from the old Queenstown cinema all the way straight to near to Great World City and then do a U-turn.

 

This will enable me to complete a loop of 10km. :)

dun think i will recommend barefoot running...

 

very painful for the heels and ankle

 

the whole point of 'barefoot running' (either literally barefoot or wearing very minimalist shoes) is to change your running style such that you land on the mid or fore foot, with your heel taking absolutely none of the impact. the idea here is that this type of running style eliminates pain in the heel, ankle, shin and knees.

 

if you do this properly, then it will do the opposite of wat you claim: really no pain in heel and ankle (and shin and knees).

 

but its not for everyone. whoever wants to try it out must properly know what is midfoot or forefoot strike, by reading or watching videos or having an experienced runner coach you. too many people take it up like its the latest fashion, screw up and get injured, then blame the shoe.

It's true: it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow. Admittedly, though... It is MOST fun to ride a fast bike fast!
