42 seconds

March 10, 2013

差點跑不到 8:30 那一組。

醒來已是 7:30,還好早一晚已準備好一切,放在袋中穿衣便跑。幸運地下樓即上了小巴,未到總站有人下車我也跟著下了, 跑了三百米到地鐵站,早點熱身有好処。

在地鉄裡看得出去尖沙咀跑的很多,和我拿一樣顏色袋的一個沒見,心有點慌。在電話不停和我哥哥及朋友 whatsapp 報告位置,希望能及時拍個照才起跑。

到尖沙咀站上了電樓梯又熱身,一個箭步跑去放行李的貨車處,還好有足夠時間拍下這個。

今年比昨年還站得後,要五分鐘才行過起跑線,感覺人數比昨年還多,有幾個窄的跑面是要慢慢前行,跑不得。

前十公里十分努力在邊線超人,看錶用了66分鐘,這和平時練習差不多,追不了什麼時間。其實今年氣溫不錯,有點風,感覺良好。

今年差不多每個水站我都去看熱鬧,到了西隧前的那個還停下來找我做義工的朋友說了句"辛苦晒,努力,加油 "。

過了政總後覺得銅鑼灣好像海市蜃樓,看得見但去不到,如昨年一樣馬師道天橋只能行上去,及後的洛克道又是看不見盡頭似的。

過了終點, 去年的經驗告訴我要邊吃生果邊跟人群到圖書館那邊, 我的胃會舒服一點。。

總結是過往一年沒有練長路程結果是有點力不從心,老了一歲成績比去年退步了四十二秒已是不錯了。

Tung Chung to Mui Wo

September 8, 2012

I discovered this trail accidentally when I ran earlier from Tung Chung. It’s called HONG KONG OLYMPIC TRAIL which is quite new. Today we hike from Tung Chung to Mui Wo.

It’s about 9k with elevation of 180m, good for family hiking.

A “tourist attraction” we didn’t expect to see on the way.

Let’s walk inside to have a look, shall we?

Oh, closed off!

Last “point of interest”.

We took 2 hours, we could have ran it except the steep sections going up hill. The good part of it was that we met no dogs.

Tung Chung

August 13, 2012

I have not tried new route for a long while.

We started off from Tung Chung a large residential development called Caribbean Coast.

I don’t know such a trail exists

The map says we can walk from there to Mui Wo

All the way back from here to those blocks at the far end, there’s no trees no cover

No more catwalk

June 27, 2012

My friend said I ran along a thin line, it’s like catwalk.

My feet and legs hit each other while I run. Now I’m pretty sure how it happened.

  1. My left leg hit the back of my right leg
  2. With right foot as pivot, I fell
  3. Forward momentum turned into spinning to the right
  4. Top part of my left knee hit the ground first, next left hand
  5. Body bounced back after left side hit the ground
  6. Right hand, right forearm, right shoulder then my face on the right hit the ground
  7. Further rolled over lying on the ground facing sky.

Assuming my cadence was 85 per minute then each step should have  taken about 0.35 second.    My left foot refused to go forward in this 0.35 seconds and this may also explain why my hands didn’t response quick enough to land with my palms.

I now have to focus on my run posture such that my feet stay away from each other.
