The Singapore Marathon 2007

(Click on title above, “Life Skills and Service Excellence” to view the entire site.)

With a coundown to 74 days before the run, my knee cap injuries seem to be acting upon me again… sigh… 😦

I took a complete break from jogging last week due to the injuries, and religiously took the Procosa II (USANA’s brand of Glaucosamin. This supplement would have been effective if not for my over-zealous practice for those few weeks. So, my friends said, “John, acknowledge and accept your age…”; well, I have to, I suppose.

Anyways, for the many of us who are jogging (or running fast) for the marathon, do remember to build up to it. Generally, the doctor has given the advice that in our jogs, we must not exceed the 170-heartbeat mark. It’s wise to heed the advice. To know your heartbeat rate, perhaps, it’s good to get a watch that tells your heartbeat as you jog. the known brand that has this – oregon scientific. If you carry a DBS credit card, you could even purchase it online. Check this up – DBSMe Singapore

If you are not running for that day, but would like to help up those who are, you may want to become a volunteer. I understand they open registration for volunteers from 18 September 2007. check the site – Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2007 (Volunteers Needed).

If you are running, it may be good to check up the route, perhap seven to jog through it, and get a feel of the distance you are going for – 10-km, 21-km or the full marathon of 42-km. The website for the marathon lists suggestions of venues that we could go to for the training. Check this up – The Training Spots.

Above all, let us all have fun… and I hope to recover fast from my knee-cap injuries and start my practice again.
