1st DNF (IDPM)

When: June 12, 2011
Distance: 21km
Training: DNF at KM 7

I missed my tempo run this week due to flu. It’s been a moody climate these past few days and sudden change of temperature means bad things for us. So I rested instead and changed my planned 39km long run to a fast 21km run. Told myself that I won’t miss the Independence Day Half Marathon as a celebration of our independence. At that point, I was really thinking of breaking the 1:40 barrier for 21k.

The 21k starting line

To break that, I need an average speed of 4:45 pace. So I started at 4:30 pace and was able to maintain it but as soon as I reach km 5, I was already tired and felt dizzy. I still pushed it a little thinking the dizziness might just go away but turned out to be worse. So there, I stopped at KM 7!

My first blood

It was a good call. I won’t have been able to log this post if I didn’t DNF that day. Lol. But seriously, I should’ve listened to my body and should have not ran in the first place.

After the race, we saw Super Alpha 1 masters Chad and Natasha and gave us some advise on the upcoming Milo Marathon Race.
