Due to my foot injury (plantar fasciitis ~足底肌膜炎), I am still not in full training mode.  I don't have to work this weekend.  The weather was pretty nice when I woke up this morning (sunny and 9C) so I decided to go outside for a short run.  No pain or discomfort but still tried to take it easy.  I ended up doing a 10K around my neighbourhood in 55 minutes.  It will be hot next week (30Cs).  And it won't be long before the temperature goes up to the 40Cs.  We only have two seasons here Summer ->Winter->Summer!!

I don't have anything line up until the end of August ~ 3rd Annual Disneyland 1/2 Marathon (nicknamed The Happiest Race on Earth).  I hope I have enough time to heal up for this fun race.

Right, that is why it won't be long before I go outside to run in pitch dark at 4am .  Have to wear reflective vest and put a headlamp on the forehead.

It was sunny 11C this morning when I got out of bed, not a single cloud in the sky.  I had plan on doing intervals today.  So I headed out and went across the street from my house to the new junior high school the city built last year.  There is a huge parking lot at the back of the school.  I measured it once and it is an exact 400m for one loop (See pictures below).  As I mentioned before, there is no public open training tracks here in Las Vegas.  What's good about it?  Not a single soul there on the weekends and it is asphalt surface not concrete.

I usually do one mile intervals and rest till my HR go back down below 120 (usually 90 seconds for me).  Studies have shown that it takes at least 2 minutes to reach V02max.  It was 25C by the time I finished my intervals.  I think I need my sunblock lotion next time.  As I am typing, it is a hot 29C.  Boy, summer is here while other part of the country is still snowing.  I am off work for a few more days and plan on doing a 15K before I go back to work if time permits.

It was 沙塵滾滾this morning, almost like 十號風球(do they still have that in HK?),planned on doing a 10 miler but had to cancel all outdoor activites.  Stayed home clean house instead and spent one hour on the elliptical watching CNN at the same time.  Today it wasn't as hot as yesterday.  23C outside as I am typing now.  See if I can make up my 10 miler tomorrow before I go back to work on Thursday.

蜜蜂C姐,

有呀!!  You get to see all the Disney characters, the runners will stop and take pictures with them.  You get to run inside Disneyland and under the Sleeping Beauty Castle, very cool!  And Mickey and Minnie will wave at all the runners at the start line and greet runners at the finish line.  Don’t expect to get a PB though because it is a fun race with lots to see and photo-ops.  The race is 50% full now and it will be sold out by July.  I think the cap (limit) is 15,000 runners for this year.

If California and Florida (Disneyworld Marathon and the Goofy Challenge) able to do it, why can’t Hong Kong do it?  Isn’t it all managed by the same corperation?  This will be the 3rd year I am doing it and after the 5th time I will get a special medal for doing it 5 times in a row.  Disney is planning to add a full marathon to it in a near future.


乜香港都有CSI睇呀?

Bee姐,

I am used to the surrounding already but definitely not the weather!!  Running in the heat is the biggest obstacle I have to face every summer.

其實另一個角度看,如果Keep住係沙漠有練跑(多多少少都好),習慣了個種恐怖的環境,即超熱同一望無際等,去到冬天係香港跑大賽,可能會舒服好多,成績也會有進步。

不過,大前提是身體必須頂得住,唔好中暑同受傷。

awyh兄,

I doubt that I can run better in HK.  I tried many times, it was just too humid and moist.  I am used to running in dry climate and low humidity.  I don't even have to wear 衫. The sweat doesn't stay on the shirt, it evaporates right away.

其實係架,香港天氣實在幾濕,我係前年去過北京跑半馬,因為個道好乾,而且唔熱,路既平又闊,所以幾好跑。

無論如何,我始終覺得習慣唔同的環境跑步,假以時日,一定會有進步的。

I missed my run last week because of the wind.  Well, it was nice this morning and 13C when I left the house.  I was planning to do 10 miles but ended up doing 13 miles (medium-long run) around my neighbourhood instead.  Should have done another 0.1mile to complete a half marathon course.  My left heel held up pretty good.  Tomorrow, I am going to relax, may be do a 6 miles recovery run after finish watching the Boston Marathon in early morning.  It should give me some excitment to run faster.
