I had intended to go at 6:30 min/km and had sent out an “SOS for pacer” message via Facebook. Lai had initially suggested I pace with his wife but we eventually ran with Kei Ming who had earlier completed 14km; Lai was in recovery mode after his previous day’s 31km LSD. Our 6:30 min/km pace was thrown out of the window in the first lap; actually for the entire run! We averaged 6:15 min/km for 4 laps or 57:04 min in total. I did not want to push it since it has only been 4.5 weeks since my fracture; perhaps we will aim for sub 6 min next week.
