Wow! Didn't know about this! Found my DS. I'd place the order cos the shot is hard to come by.

Thanks for sharing this link!!

You're welcome, kingrascal. In fact, I only found out when I got an email from organisers of the women's 10k event. I dont think the kids' run organisers sent out any emails. I've received the pic of sonny with both feet in the air. Very well taken , I must say.

mathsparks,

I don't know where to post this, also don't want to start new thread unnecessarily... :D Need your advice, please.

I remember you mentioned that you do stair climbing ...

I want to try stair climbing as a form of exercise. Don't have time to go to gym regularly and this is something I can do rain or shine and most importantly, when DS is taking aft nap.

My quest is - are there any specific warm up exercises to do?? Is the warm up ex for jogging and brisk walking applicable for this type of work out??

TIA

I just use the stairs to walk down and sometimes use the stairs to climb up. No warming up at all, hope its ok.

Hi all,

anyone heard of Strongman Sports international? Saw their swimming training at Bishan swimming pool, and was very impressed with the kids over there. Quite a few are between 5yrs old to 12yrs old and they are all swimming very well in all 4 strokes. Spoke to their coach and was told that he is actually the head coach of Triathlon Association of Singapore. He told me that all the kids will be taking part in Osim triathlon very year.

Beside triathlon training, they also conduct competitive swim program too.
Think I will sign up for my kids for their swimming first.

Wonder anyone of you here heard of them? Please comments. Thanks!

Really very impress with the kids there with their swimming technique and their determination.

This is their website http://www.strongmansports.com.sg

Singapore Marathon (Anybody has joined 10K?)

Post by 542la » Tue May 10, 2011 4:18 am

Hello!
Has anybody joined the Marathon or 10K in particular? I need to know whether all participants required to run most of the time or are they also allowed to just walk? I love running and walking but i'm a lousy runner (used to be good gazillion yrs ago in hi school :D).
