In a nutshell, this morning's run was humbling. I started out feeling strong with @garyfong just a few steps ahead of me. We both started at a pretty fast pace, then I guess I made a rookie mistake of wanting to chase up on a fellow competitor as early as 4 km into the race. I went a bit too fast, and left Gary a little behind me. But eventually I came to my senses and at the 10km mark, Gary caught up with me and helped pace me at a much more realistic pace. However, at about 17km in I slowly felt my breathing get more laboured, and had to slow down quite a bit. I think I almost hit the wall, and at 18km started to walk to catch my breath. Gary urged me to carry on, and I started to pick my pace up again. The last 2km, I managed to bring my pace back to race pace, so Gary ran ahead, while I gave it everything I had to finish in 1:45 hours and 3rd Malaysian Woman. On paper, this is not a PB as the last Score Run had me doing 1:43, with average pace 4:59 minutes. But a quick check on my Garmin showed that this morning's race was longer in distance and my average pace was 4:55 minutes so this makes it a PB, technically. ✌️ Thank u Hubby for the push! This is as much your win as it is mine!
