2008年: 馬拉松丶半馬拉松丶10K賽跑 ∕ 2008: Marathon, Half-marathon, 10K Races



我在10月中跑完了最後一個馬拉松之後,2008年度的賽跑季節又暫告一段落。在過去6個月,我一共跑了兩個全馬拉松(42.2K marathon x 2)丶一個半馬拉松(21.1K half-marathon)丶和一個中程賽(10K race)。根據加拿大賽跑家John Stanton說,通常每一個馬拉松是需要約18個星期和900公里的訓練路程,但我是「火麒麟,週身癮」,那有時間跑那近2250里的長程,所以在春季未溶雪前,我都是以滑雪丶溜冰來代替,到了夏季才真正穿上跑步鞋作戶外訓練運動。

這個冬天,我沒有買alpine/downhill skiing高山滑雪的seasonal pass,所以在未來5個月,我的視線將轉移至越野滑雪cross-country skiing (classic and skating)。如果形勢許可,会再如上一個季節一樣,找團去享受冬天露營滋味。

嘩,你真是為"馬"著了迷,不跑不舒服,
另,我又參加了SCM的10K跑,就當是保健吧,
跟你的比?真是蚊比跟牛比 ...

我們都是人生的長跑手,
每天都不斷的跑着,
只是不知何時是終點!
健壯的體魄也是人生長跑的要素,
你做到了!

Hyacinthus: Ha Ha !! I never thought of myself as 馬迷. That's a pretty good pun :)

As an amateur athlete, I agree with you: 就當是保健吧.

I would suggest the means is the end !!! In another word, it is important to treasure the present and enjoy what life has to offer. I would suggest that people don't wait for retirement. Enjoy and seek meaning in life now !!!

你說得對,
過程一樣好重要,
但香港一心要揾食,
因為社會無乜保障嘛,
但久而久之就忘記了揾錢為什麼,
所以好易變成工作狂,
生活漸漸變得枯燥和無意思,
唉~~~生活逼人,
我們都有點迷糊了!

最近讀明報,話明年的香港馬拉松,
要開始準備,有教練解釋,
要跑前六天專吃肉吸收蛋白質,
前三天改吃殿粉質,加強耐力.

This may also apply to relationships and other aspects of life. There is an old saying among engineers in Canada:

"We are so busy fighting alligators that we have forgotten to drain the swamp."

Lest we forget !!!

Inner Space: I am a follower of the said dietary regime. Carbohydrate overload is supposed to help store fuel in an athlete's body before the race so he/she will not hit the "wall" later (i.e. exhaustion due to complete depletion of glycogen). But, some experts do not subscribe to the idea and suggest that athletes should just eat regular healthy meals right up to the day before the race. However, all agree that energy bars, gel packs, electrolyte, and/or other high energy food and drinks should be consumed before and during an endurance race so the athlete would not "bonk" out.

啤酒花™_J: You are very wise !!! When the risk outweighs the benefits, then it is not worth it.

At the YMCA/YWCA gym here, it is 16 laps to a mile running around the indoor track. So, you can imagine what it is like to train for say 6 miles (10K) - that's going round and round for almost a hundred times !!! To avoid boredom, I usually do cross-training (e.g. swimming, elliptical machines, tread mills, stationary bikes, etc), which is better than not having any exercise.

啤酒花™_J said...

swimming-ok, tread mills-ok, the rest bored! btw, I stopped everything for like months already. Including yoga too! sigh! I really gotta find a way to run as I wished at any where and any time I wanted!

微豆 Haricot said...

啤酒花™_J: You are right. A runner needs only a pair of shoes and a safe environment to do the sport.

If you like yoga, I would suggest you visit the blog of San Wen Ji who is a keener.
