My First Ever 20km Run

I just made my first ever 20km run.
Unbelievable! Even I can’t believe that I can ever make it.
I just did that without enough mental preparation in advanced, but full of motivation and determination during running.
It was tough at the last 5km, muscles were so tired, and foot was getting pain. At the moment where I almost wanted to give up running, I told myself to keep running, just keep running, don’t stop, the destination is right in front of the corner.
20km isn’t a matter for most of you, but it is a good start for me.

Any idea what philosophy had I applied?
As long as you keep living, the hope is there.
As long as you keep running, the hope is there.
(只要还活着就有希望。只要还跑着就有希望)

It looks like your legs are not ready yet for 20 km. I suggest you run step by step. Go for 10 km for few times first. Then, move to 15 km more frequently and then 20 km. If you push yourself too much now, you might feel tired after few long distance run. Go slow and steady. Enjoy the long distance run and at this moment, try not to set any target first. Just need to get yourself comfortable. When you feel ok, then, go for longer distance run like 30 km.

Yup. This 20km run was a bonus for me. Actually i'm still praticing for better performance in 10km run.
Strongly agreed that i need a lot of training in order to maintain my passion and to go further.

路途中
天空飘着细雨
尽管我们没有同一样的步伐与速度
却有着同一个方向与终点
我深信
我们最终会在终点相遇
就像当初我们在起点相遇一样

以過來人的經驗讓妳參考。

以前缺少練,不真正投入跑步,跑至十五公里就撞牆至滿天星斗,痛苦得很,八打靈半馬常在二一零至二一五之間完成,緊張得很,心臟都快跳出來,當然最後數公里是邊走邊慢跑。

不過,自從參與喜愛跑步的大圈子後,隨著哩數的累積,當然,十公里練多幾次,就可以嚐試二十公里,當然是要用慢跑的速度,嚐試找有經驗的人配速,不好太快,一旦撞牆,可能讓妳心生恐懼。

不過,從妳的情況來看,二十五公里、三十公里和三十五公里,妳遲早都會去嚐嚐箇中滋味。

多練一些二十公里吧,妳肯定會發覺妳的潛能哦!

加油!
