The Year So Far

Only three weeks left till we get to the new year of 2013.

Running wise, it's been a fun year so far. I have only one race left to do for 2012 and that's the Newton Challenge on Dec 30th. One more and we're done for the year. ^^

12 months and 15 races so far. I've been rather good and picked and chose my races for the first half of the year as a part of my Half-Marathon training for SCKLM in June so I entered only 5 races from Jan - May. Such discipline and restraint. Hahaha
See, once (well, almost) a month race.

Then, after that I kinda went crazy...
Up to this point, I have been joining races for a full year. One year from entering my first road race ever to this.
  • We went to Setia Alam in November for me to do another half-marathon there at CICM Responsible Care Run and we also traveled to Penang for me to run in the Penang Bridge International Marathon (another half-marathon for me) using a donated bib. I guess race fatigue caught up with me as I've been having slower and slower timing for my half marathons. That, and the fact I haven't been properly following any training plans to prepare for my subsequent half-marathons after SCKLM. My bad... 
  • The 1st day of December and I met a few lady runners when I joined the supposedly 7.8km turned into a 5km run at Engineers' for MAKNA Run at UNITEN.
After the Newton Challenge on Dec 30th, I have the Multi-Purpose Insurans Run on Jan 6th. Nothing yet for Feb. Brooks Half-marathon in March and Borneo International Marathon in May. I need to pick and choose my races in 2013 so it'll match my training plan and so that I don't get burned out.

Can't wait for 2013! :)

  14. why is that run on 30/12?? should have it on the night of 31/12 so that you will be running from 2012 till 2013, now that's more exciting right??

    ReplyDelete

    1. It was held on 1st Jan this year already. Maybe they don't want to do it further into the month of January?

      Acrually there is a run called Ambang 2013 being held in Shah Alam. Short distance only. You wanna join? Can burn calories, celebrate new year and get a medal. :)

  17. Good idea on picking races that suit your training plans. Quality over quantity, I say. I'm doing the same thing but it's going to be hard trying to resist not signing up for too many races ... LOL!

    1. Same here, Nick! It's gonna be tough to stay away from joining a race for too long! Hahaha

      Hmm... now who do I always blame for my race addiction again? Yeah... YOU! LOL
