I did a trial run of the 10k route last weekend,
I was running relaxed with my wife, her pace not mine. But we did quite well. I used endomondo to track my run, unfortunately the app crashed in the last 10k. Looking at the lap times, we definitely could have done better.
I’m hoping on the day the huge amount of ppl will get us pushing ourselves faster a bit more.
The Brunei National Day Run was done in all Districts of Brunei-muara, Tutong, Belait and Temburong. I did the one in Tutong.
There was a 3km fun run, 5km run for under 18, 10km for 18 years and above.
I did the 10km run. My training followed guideline from the book entitled 4 hour body. which is basically a high intensity run of 2.4km, for 3-4 times a week. Added with the POSE technique. I did well for about 5km… then I had to run (i actually walked) up a freaking hill (DAMN that Hill to HAYELL!!!). I’m targetting my peak state in 2007 when I could run 10km/hour, or 6minutes/km.. Sounds fast to some, but pros do it almost half the time or twice that speed. I’ll get there once i reach my peak state first.
Considering the Hill was my weakness, I’m tempted to train running up that hill.. or any other hill for that matter..
Here’s my endomondo map with my lap times
There are more pics on my facebook
I compiled a video that I took and upload it on youtube.
