Centro Klang Run is one of the few runs which I participate annually. It is a 12km run. You can read my previous experience here.
I did it again this year!
The route was changed to fit the theme which was Klang Heritage Run and all the runners especially those who came from different part of the country experienced many historical places along the run. Good job to the management team for organizing this race, they are constantly improving.
I did some improvements too. 🙂
I am an amateur runner who is constantly battling the enemy within. The biggest learning curve for me this season has been all about consistency. Since May this year I increased my training runs and that helped quite a bit. Stated below is my timing for 2015 & 2016 Centro Klang Run:
2015 – 1:34:09
2016 – 1:21:37
That is almost a 13 minutes improvement!
The timing is nothing compared to all the elite runners, but I am more interested in my tiny improvements. Below is the per km splits breakdown 2016 vs 2015:
If you look close enough, the total distance for this year is actually 12.5km. My average pace was 6.32min/km. There was a small hill at kilometer 10 towards 11 and I slowed down at that part of the race. (Self note: more hill training) Apart from that I intentionally ran at the above pace to complete a steady 12km.
This is just the beginning, I have promised myself to test my so called limits. It was tough but definitely worth it!
Thank you for reading my progress.
