A new perspective of life.

Year 2014 is an eventful year and I must admit that I have learnt a lot about life through HIM.

Matthew 7:7
Ask, Seek, Knock
7"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
8"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.…

It's a year where I have lost something but I have gained even more through HIM and especially from the guidance from my beloved wife. She has been encouraging me through the hard times since year 2013.

I hope this year, next year and so on, I will look into life more positively and most importantly to put my trust and everything to HIM.

I remembered how I started running barefooted since 2008, I was filled with hope and enthusiastic about my barefoot running journey even though I was very busy with work and family commitment. I was then not very active in seeking the journey with HIM. I spent time with HIM only during Sunday services. Deep down inside my heart, I believed that HE has given me the strength and determination to achieve what I have achieved so far in my barefoot running. I did ASKed for HIS blessing but I didn't continue to SEEK and KNOCK then.

Last year and this year, I began to SEEK. I have been given answers from HIM and I am very glad all things turn out fine. When shall I KNOCK ? I am currently at this cross road on doing the KNOCK.

The person who has inspired me the most is Barefoot Rick , I must say thanks to him and HIM.

I have started training seriously from May 2013 onwards and so far I have seen quite an improvement.

In May 2013, my 10km timing was 49min and now it's 44:38. Isn't this a significant improvement? I am aiming for 40min in 3 months time.

What did I do? Basically I runs 3 times a week. That is Tuesday - 10km, Thursday - Interval (6~10 x 1km), Saturday (LSD > 21km)

I will try to put my training in RunKeeper, here is the link.

Sign up as a form of commitment.

I have just signed for U Run Premium Package 2013

There will be five runs altogether for a price of $180. I have decided to take part in
1. U Run 15km @ 24 Feb 2013
2. 2XU Compression Run 21km @ 31 Mar 2013
3. Sundown Marathon 42km @ 1 Jun 2013
4. Army Half Marathon 21km @ XX Sept 2013
5. Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 42km @ XX Dec 2013

That's quite a saving, it's worthwhile if you take part in the longer distances.

Ran at 21:45hrs on 2012-12-2

40 minutes run - 20:20 and 20:00 ~ 7km. From Traffic Light to Waterway Park Bridge.

The route is almost deserted because SCSM was held in the morning, I guessed all the runners had ran in the morning and were resting at home.

I ran breathing through nose only.

New Beginning

I am making a come back in year 2013.

I have started training starting from today (29 Nov 2012) with a running duration of 35 minutes, about 6.5km.

My focus : -

1. Just next year AHM and Standard Chartered Marathon 2013.

2. Timing aim - Maybe just sub 1hr 50 min for AHM and Sub 4hr for SCM.

I have not been running seriously for 2 years, so I am starting from zero level.

Anyone wanted to join me?
