Sunday's LSD Run,14/8

Decided to do the YCK-Seletar all road route for my weekend LSD run. As usual, the run started at 6am from Serangoon Stadium. This run has a few new running gadgets namely a new dark ClimaCool Running Hat ( in replacement of the my Favorite White ClimaCool hat which blown away when i left it for drying at the balcony at SAF Yacht Club recently) and a new 6 bottles NB Fuel belt. These new running stuffs and a Response Running Vest were bought on Saturday Shopping Marathon mainly at Suntec Mall, Novena and Raffles City. Guess i must have caught Fd's Shopping Bugs......
Reached the YCK- UTR-OUTR road junction in 56mins in slightly faster time and proceeded to turn into OUTR toward Seletar. Met Leng , Mike and other MR25 runners on their return leg of MR-Seletar 21km run ( they started at 6am as well) Not forgeting Mathew who had recently recovered from Dengue. He is looking fitter and speedier than before....Made my U-Turn at Seletar Entrance in 1hr 25mins.
On my return Leg toward UPR, surprised to see Carine with a Group of MR25 runners ( this group started at 7am) heading to Seletar.... she kept her pace with the other MR25 runners well, i guessed her challenge will be in their return legs when they open up their strides. Carine is a potential future MR25 star Female Runner just like Pauline , J.J if she continues training hard.
On reaching UPR main gates, i continued to tackle the hilly terrain in this stretch of the route to UPR toilet where U turn to AirCON road and back to the Gates/ OUTR. I have intentionally do this tougher and more demanding hilly portions at this late stage of the run to apply a little more stresses and to test my mental. In fact, my calf muscle were so tense to the point of near Cramp situation that i took a short walk break to walk out the muscle'stensions ( lesson here, no more shopping marathon the day before my LSD run ).... Reached my reward finishing point near my Roti Prata place in 2hr 38mins.
