Sometimes you have to give it all you've got. You have to dip deep and just let your body run fast. Have fun beating someone. No I didn't win, I placed 2nd instead of 3rd. @mayonnoise Won over 30 seconds before we crossed the finish line. I may have only ran under 17:50 averaging about 5:40 pace but I'm sure I was running well under 5 pace at the very end. ❄️ This pic is from the frozen firefighter 5k in 2010 where I had to sprint almost to my max to finish one place up. Welcome winter!!!! I can't wait to start running soon!!! 🌲❄️🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃❄️🌲 #run#winterrunning#5k#runitfast
W2D2: 6 Miles

Today it is hard to imagine that I’ll ever be this runner again. I want to tell you all how much it hurts to break into the national running scene and then fall hard on my face just as quickly. I don’t mean to do this but I want to tell you all that your support or lack of support doesn’t go unnoticed. I want to tell you that it’s not my intention to make note of those who lost interest because my injury seems to be endless but it still stings. Yet a small handful of friends continue to check in and tell me they believe in me even when I’m not sure I even believe in the possibility of ever getting better. Why do these things matter? Falling from high on the mountain is hard but it’s even harder to do it alone. Having physical pain every day is hard but it’s even harder to do it alone. I need to throw in my towel for a while because getting better is a heavy burden, a financial and time burden to my family, a mental burden for myself, a burden to what I once considered a close-knit running community. I have logged so so many hours to my recovery that it’s time to stop setting the heat in my garage gym so that it’s toasty warm for 5 AM training. It’s time to stay up late reading, eat too many chips, cook something I’ve never made before, get together with local friends (who I always say no to because I “need” to get to bed early) and of course focus on my work. That’s been the bright spot anyway. I can’t help myself but I can help others.
I post this because so many of my followers here are runners, which means you all have a running friend who is injured. I know this because more than 50% of the running community will suffer injury by the end of each year. So go hug your injured running friend today. You don’t know how much they need it. .

Yoga at 6:30 and ran 5 easy miles after! 🏃🏻♀️ one of my goals for this training cycle is to actually keep my easy runs easy 🙈 Feeling good but trying not to push things too much yet post marathon!
Another cool morning. Feels nice to get inside my warm house. Half marathon for breakfast anyone? 😂 Went out form a nice and easy half marathon run this morning. I'm Ready for tomorrow's tough workout. I guess I better do a little hill training since my next race will be a 14 miler trail race😁.
And yes, We are runners and we don't stop when we're tired, we stop when we're done!!! 😀

Yesterday was my favorite kind of day. Spent the morning skiing with my parents, did an afternoon run (with selfies), and some evening/late night work. Wish every day could be like this. So lucky
“Stop worrying how it’s going to happen and start believing that it will.”-unknown
Now, believing in it is the first part. The second part is you have work for it because nothing worth having comes easy. It requires determination, commitment and persistence. Every effort no matter the pace gets you closer to the goal.
So, time to get up and clock those miles!
Well hello there paces I’ve never hit! ⚡️ Learning to love my discomfort zone while I focus on short speed workouts before I start marathon training again. It’s not easy for me because I would rather run long distances at a comfortable pace but this is the time to push the limits and focus on those 2018 goals!
2 mile warm-up
1 min @ 6:58 x 10 w/ 1 min between
Cooldown to 7 total.
That was the definition of a F YES run for me! 🙌🏻 💦 It’s almost the weekend...let’s do this! 👍🏼

Teamwork. Camaraderie. Giving your friendly WTM course designer a lift to thank him for all the pain he inflicted on us. Ain’t nothing more #nationalmudderday than that. (@thearcherproject will never live this down)
Im finally coming down from the emotional mess of my marathon. It was a heartbreaking race but one that has taught me so much and in all honesty has made me more excited, driven, and passionate about this wonderful but sometimes heartbreaking sport! I’ve got some fun things in the works that I’ll be sharing soon but for now I’m on a 10-14 day break 😬 it’s hard but it’s what my body needs! I’m looking forward to refocusing, working harder than ever, and in the future getting my redemption! 💪 It’s coming - maybe not today or even this next cycle but it is COMING! 👟

Minggu lepas sewaktu saya belum membuat keputusan samaada ingin training untuk Half Marathon (HM) atau Full Marathon (FM), ada saya baca beberapa artikel berkenaan training plan untuk sub-2 HM (bermaksud lari HM dibawah 2 jam).
Antara prinsip latihan yang pasti ada dalam setiap artikel yang saya baca adalah Long Run. Long Run dikatakan penting untuk membina kekuatan dan ketahanan badan. Long Run bantu melatih otot, sendi, jantung dan pernafasan untuk persedian kepada race day.
Satu lagi elemen penting yang dapat dilatih dengan Long Run adalah minda kita. Untuk runner yang baru nak cuba HM, Long Run mungkin bukan perkara yang perlu ditekankan. Tak pernah buat HM pun boleh cuba HM masa race day.
Saya dulu pun semasa first time masuk HM (PBIM 2015), memang tak pernah lari pada HM distance dalam training. Paling jauh pun 15km saja. Apa yang terjadi? Dalam kepala asyik fikir berapa km lagi nak habis. Sebelum badan bonk, otak dah bonk dulu.
Tetapi jika ingin buat PB dan tingkatkan pace contohnya dalam HM, adalah penting untuk kita biasakan berlari pada jarak HM atau lebih dengan pace yang selesa atau LSD (Long Slow Distance).
Setiap minggu disarankan perlu ada long run yang lebih dari HM distance atau sekurangnya HM distance untuk latih minda biasakan dengan target distance, jika tidak, distance akan menjadi cabaran pada race day.
Dikatakan ramai runner yang telah cuba FM boleh buat new PB dalam HM, kerana mereka tahu yang mereka boleh habiskan HM tanpa masalah, jadi mereka akan push harder. Harapnya fakta ini benar sebab saya ada join HM soon.
Jadi kenapa perlu training long run atau LSD? Supaya masa race day:
“You don’t want the DISTANCE to be challenging; you want the PACE to be challenging!
Kalau training untuk distance sehingga HM, info di atas boleh digunapakai. Tetapi kalau training untuk FM, lain pula konsepnya.

Slow pace marathoner yang masih mencari route yang sesuai untuk LSD run di bandar KT.
📷 Selesai semalam rutin LSD mingguan di bandar K.Terengganu, menyusuri Jalan Sultan Mahmud, ke Pantai Batu Burok. Agak mencabar nak buat road running di bandar KT ni.

LOVE WORKING ❤
Having a personal goal gives me the passion and motivation to see the positive side in every situation.
Neither trouble, or bad feelings, nor extreme weather conditions can kill my passion and motivation. I love my personal thrill every day!!! 💪
