I have been very selective on running these days due to work schedule and also the worthiness of the runs (cost for each run registration has escalated and the even the goody bags and medals are not up to standard).
In addition, I have not been running as much as I want to due to extreme exhaustion from work and it has definitely affected my running performance (another form of stress).
After the Standard Chartered KL Marathon, this was the only short distance run I participated. I wanted a to perform a sub 50mins but unfortunately I had to settle with 53:02 mins with a position of 48. I gathered there were more than one thousand runners in my category and an overall of above two thousand runners (which included a 5km run). The actual distance from my GPS watch was 10.61km instead of 10km.
