1. You will need to accept that you will finish your ultra in extremely terrible condition. All runners including elite and injured runners will finish in shitty condition, and that is very normal.
2. Everyone vomits and hit the wall somewhere in the race, even the elites. Remember that SK and Yim also vomited and bonked but they push on and even try to run thereafter. Vomits and bonking will pass soon and it is cyclical. Look for positive signs of recovery than to dwell on negatives.
3. Your speed should be the speed that let you arrive the next checkpoint before the cut off. Don’t aim to arrive any earlier. Push too fast will bonk you out sooner.
4. Ultra is 90% mental! The mentally strong will prevail.
5. Run with someone rather than alone. Let someone push you for a while. You did it in HK100 2013 with a Malaysian and HK runner successfully, and in Dalian 100. You never succeed by running alone.
6. Force to eat and drink every 2 hours. Take salt pills every 2 hours.
7. Your job is to cross the finish line in whatever conditions. Think about that sprinter who staggered through to finish line crying hard with his father when he sprained his legs. Look at how emotional and fulfilling for everyone if you can cross that finish line despite being is the worst conditions!
8. Remember that ultra for me is more of a mental game than a physical game. You cannot be the strongest and fastest runner but you must prove to yourself that you are the mentally fittest. Quitting is not an option.
I need to start setting a daily ritual that get some positive order into my life.
1. Wake up at specified time.
2. Push up 50, plank 2 times to failure, wall sit 2 times to failure.
3. Meditation 30 mins
5. Bath and wash and dress
6. Positive reinforcement
7. Revise day plan
I had a coffee discussion with Mr Zhang last Saturday morning and I ran through with him some of my current projects.
As usual, I am to get a eager listening ear from him, but more importantly I can see the difference in how different we think through issues. Zhang is able to listen and immediate cut through the gist of the matter to identify what is key and what are not. On the other hand, I am not able to do this. Zhang’s background in Mathematics and statistics contribute to his ability look at issues very objectively and his management skills and experiences further helped him in his judgement and decisions.
For me, I have always attribute my weakness to not able to think through ideas widely, deeply and clearly enough. I think I hate the entire thinking process itself and maybe due to my nature, prefer to get things moving and done and leave thinking to later or to someone else.
This has got to change.
I love and hate this evening light. When I was in elementary and secondary schools, this light means I have so much homework and not enough time, or there is a test tomorrow and I have not covered enough. Now, I love the tranquility and warmth this light gives me. This is my 15 minutes of fear and comfort.
Completed 15km on thread mill in gym in 93min. Running on thread mill is relatively more difficult than on the road outdoor for some unknown reasons. Maybe it is the lack of wind, or the different muscles used. I stopped to do walking and slow jogging 3 times to recover. I do not feel tired but just too bored to do that same motion over and over.
I was sitting in a cab when another car from my right side was turning right and cutting into our lane abruptly. In normal circumstance, turning car must give way to cars moving straight.
The cab driver swore at this driver loudly and I was angered by this incident. The immediate thoughts that entered my mind are:
Beijing is full of reckless drivers
This is one inconsiderate driver
This driver must have paid his way to his driving license
However I momentarily stopped this though process and ask the question:
Am I stereotyping or over generalizing again?
