Unfortunately, this is not Fall fall, colourful leaves, nice weather, etc but actually falling …
Silliest thing happened today: I registered my first fall while running in Macritchie 10 m from the finishing point!!:-(
After what felt like a long outward leg to Bt Timah Nature Reserve (10.35k)
& looking forward to a water break, realised that it is (still) closed during weekdays …
Luckily, some shops just along Upp Bt Timah Rd were open and I got to recharge a bit for the run back:
(btw, the 100plus rather ex, costs $2.50, but gell is ok at $3 from bike shop; cheaper if can get from vending machine 2 shops down).
The route via Rifle Range Road connecting Macritchie and Bt Timah is quite shady throughout
and you pass by many army camps along the way, as well as going over BKE
and under PIE
Below is the end of Rifle Range Road, and where the the trail from Macritchie begins/ends..
The return leg route (10.91k) was surprisingly comfortable until the “silliest” thing nearing the end (entrance/exit of trail near Little Sisters Home): I started thinking about eating beef steak or mutton curry after the run.
Next thing (with10 m more to go), I tripped on some root, fell forward, but luckily reacted fast and managed to cushion myself from having my face on the ground. Just got two small abrasions: on right palm and left knee, and a bruised left thumb…
1. It aint over till its over
2. Don’t think abt food (or other thing, or looking at hot babe, haha) on the trails; concentrate 100%, on the moment (which is placing your feet safely at each step)
3.still good for 21k anytime, yay!! 🙂
