I guess I'll just put the standards of the B'div 100m up. 11 seconds. Terrifying speed. Coach only say I 12 seconds... D:

the harsh reality
I just went to http://www.schoolsports.sg/ and see the timings that I have to aim for year 2011 as I will be in the B'division competing with boys older than me by a year. This is what I found, it came down on me like a nightmare.
In order to qualify to the finals: 11.12 s to 11.70 s
Record: 10.80 s
In order to qualify to the finals: 22.59 s to 23.55 s
Record: 21.88 s
Furthermore, cross country distance is 4.6 km and my best timing is only 22 mins. Need at least 18 mins to get top 5. Worst case - it is a team event, your position determines your points. My teammates... I don't know what, not just me but the team is DOOMED!
HAIZXC... I dunno! It's only 3 to 4 months away!! I am stressed. I want to pause my other activities first. If not 2011 is another Armageddon for me.

200m ++ NR
Haha! Guess what? I broke my "Park Connector" 200m PB. Yea, I've being trying hard to break the 30 second barrier and I did it yesterday!
AWESOME! I feel so proud of myself because like 2009 my best was only 30 + something. So before the year 2010 ends, I want to beat my old record and I did it although on that day I was kinda tried.
The first 150m was lightning fast for me as I didn't care about my stride length, I just went full repetition as fast as possible. In the last 50m I think I slowed down a lot lah, but still under 30 seconds!
PS. The park connector 200m have a tarmac surface and it's 200m ++ to 210m? My champion New Balance shoes were quite worn out (2 years if harsh running okay?) so 25 seconds should not be a problem if I'm wearing spikes. :P

Welcome to my 2nd of my 4 blogs. The 1st one is my personal one (original but dead), the 3rd is also a personal one but it's So Nyuh Shi Dae! I am currently working on my 4th one, about piano compositions. ^_^
I want to mark this blog as my athlete's diary or something like that. Every athlete need some motivation right? So I need to put everything into place, my facts, my tips and all the competition experiences into this blog. While this blog is still quite an empty shell, the layout is done but where are all my photos? I'll upload them into a slideshow on Flikr or Picasa soon. I need to put the encyclopedia full of advices, not only it will be easier for me to read if it's classified but also serves as a morale booster for me before competition day.
2010 is almost over and 2011, I am participating in two different events! In March there's cross country, that's alright, I've been training for long distance for close to a year but what I am worried the most is the 52nd National Track & Field Championships in April. Boo! I am in B'division, competing against people a year older than me. I want to qualify! Very soon, I will put up my schedule for training and this blog will be my "digital coach" for me. [:
perspiration & teardrops. those are the athletes who inspire me.
Greetings all people!
Kaixuan here with his athlete's autobiography.
I want to input every experience I've achieved into this blog because
every time I go for competition I always didn't perform as 100% on the track. ):
I wanna learn from my mistakes and run my best and hopefully others can benefit from this blog. Cheers!
PS. Cbox is always on your bottom right corner of the screen.
