My 4th 10KM run after, Siemens, Adidas and Putrajaya Night Run.
All I can conclude ; you need to train at least a week before, after what had happened to me during Putrajaya night run, I really make sure I train this time around.
The whole of last week I trained at least 4 times..of total 17KM a week. Even with that I still couldn't get my target timing of 1 hr 15 mins. I only managed to complete in 1 hr 17 or 18 (haven't received the official timing from the organizer) according to my RUNKEEPER app it's 1hr 18.
Good thing, I received my finisher medal.!
I hope to beat this timing during Penang bridge, fingers crossed!!
Hubby did his first half marathon yesterday, completed his race in 2 hours 13 mins. Even with this timing he missed the finisher medal..so you can imagine those who joined half marathon...mostly the hardcore runners..they can easily complete in less than 2 hours..like crazzeeeeee!!, hubby a bit dissapointed yesterday. He said by 18KM, he was totally drained..he reached 12KM in 1 hour but took him 1 hour 13 mins to complete another 9KM.
Since I plan to do my first half marathon next year, I definitely need to train hard..really hard!!! but errr..my target timing is just 3 hours..perhaps not so hard aa?? well..Im not ambitious..but I need to tell my cucu in future that their nenek once ran for half marathon but i dont think I will ever ready for full marathon...like everrr!
