Singapore Marathon

シンガポールに来てから間もなく走り始めた夫、週に何度か走っていますし、年に何度かハーフマラソンに参加しています。今朝はシンガポールマラソンでハーフを走って来ました。朝3時に起きて、5時前の出発です。シンガポールマラソンのルートはこれまで駐車場を走ったりで夫は嫌なコースだったようですが、多くのクレームがあったらしく、今年からルートが変わりました。が、街中を走るのであまり風もなく暑くて大変だったようです。

My husband started runnning soon after we moved to Singapore and he has been running a few times a week since then.  He also runs a half marathon a few times a year every year and he did the Singapore Marathon this morning.  He got up at 3.00am and the race started a little before 5.00am.  He used to hate the course of Singapore Marathon because you ran places like a parking lot on Sentosa but they changed the course from this year I imagine due to attendants’ complaints.  However, this new course was proven to be quite tough – no breeze and very hot as you run in the city.

今年は前半はとても調子が良かったのですが、後半、スコットランドとイギリスに旅行に行った頃から旅行や出張で走るのも筋トレもコンスタントに出来なくなり、調子が狂ったようでした。そんな訳で少し前に参加するのをやめようかなと言っていましたが、結局参加していました。わたしとしては、この暑い国で長距離を走るのが体に良いようには思えないので無理して走らなくても良いのではと思ったりもしますが、無理のない程度に、楽しめる程度にお願いしたいものです。

My husband was doing very well at running earlier this year, I think until we went to Scotland and England in May/June. With holidays and business trips he struggles to run and have gym sessions consistently, which affected his running performance.  Recently he was saying maybe he would not even run this marathon but in the end he did.  I personally don’t believe it’s that good to run in this hot weather in terms of health but as long as he doesn’t push himself too much and he enjoys it….

タイムはあまり良くなかったようですが、完走できて何よりです!お疲れ様〜⭐️

His time apparently wasn’t as good as he wanted it to be, but he completed the half marathon, which is great!
