RACE REPORTS

Below are my race accounts since 2003. I've been running for more than 10 years but have only been recording down my experiences since 2003, the year I ran my first marathon. These files are in PDF format, so you'll need to have the Acrobat Reader to view. Please note that most links within the reports (especially those in the banner and the left/right frames) are no longer valid as they're pointing to outdated sources. I simply didn't have the time to cleanup the links and just converted the content lock, stock and barrel.

Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon

Training: 18 weeks | 16 weeks | D-Minus 22hrs
You can see that there wasn't much training even though there were the usual schedules. Adherence to the program was so poor that I didn't both to include the other weeks' reports. In retrospect, I'm not sure why I was hit by so much illness. In any case this experience is a classic case of what NOT to do in a marathon training. You've been warned!
