Tarp (Goldilocks run)

When: May 15, 2011
Distance: 21km
Training: 30km @ 5:40 pace

1st month had past since my Milo training started. Goldilocks run would be my 5th long run and I needed to hit a 30km with atleast 5:40 pace. Started running around Lawton Avenue around 4am to do a fast 9km run. It was really dark and I kept so focus on the road thinking a running vehicle might hit me or worst, fall into an unknown hole. haha! As I’m going back to BGC proper, I saw some fireworks from the starting line area. It was nice and I know I wasn’t lost. LOL.

As I reached the starting area, I was amazed with the huge 21k runners preparing for the race. Checked clock and I still have around 4mins to spare, thank God I was on time. As soon as we heard the gunstart, a stream of runners wearing a bright yellow singlet started to fill up the road. Plan is to maintain my target pace and not to burn me out.

Still ok. ๐Ÿ™‚

Nah! It was really really hot. The race started at 5:15am but humidity and heat strucked us as early as 6am. I was really struggling to maintain a 5:30-5:45pace. Maybe because of the speed and tempo trainings during weekdays, the additional 9kms(@5:15pace) prior and the HEAT OF SUMMER! Oo na, ako na!

Not ok. Near death. haha!

Finished atlast! I clocked in 1:58:18 and giving me a total average pace of 5:35 on my 30km training run. Still on my target pace. Woohoo! Thank you, thank you Lord! ๐Ÿ™‚

After being fried under the sun, a good buffet breakfast at Paul Calvin’s Deli was a good reward!
