Thunderstorm Training 2014: Tai Mei Tuk -> Sam A Tsuen -> Yung Shue O -> Luk Kung -> Tai Mei Tuk The skies looked ominous at 8.30am in the morning. Vic, Marcia and I were keen to start our run but there was this slight concern about heading straight into a thunderstorm which looked increasingly…..
Cloudy Hill, Pat Sin Leng, Plover Cove plus plenty of sunshine A poolside Corona or a 37km run? 35 degrees centigrade. 90% humidity. Zero cloud cover. Scorching heat. This is the kind of weather an average Joe would spend relaxing, lying on a poolside bench and sipping an ice-cold Corona. But, us? No, not the…..
HKTR’s Annual Plover Cove Championships Battle for love We’ve seen this so many times in the movies — the classic love story plot. Two guys fall for the same beauty and, after an arduous fight, only one of them emerges victorious and the disappears forever into the sunset! Well, that’s just the movies. Real life…..
Two (clean) Trails Are Better Than One Choosing is a lot easier than you think Do you want a delicious slice of pizza with some extra cheese on it OR do you want a cup of mouth melting ice cream with some extra dark chocolate on it? I know what you’re thinking — do you…..
Post-Trailwalker recovery run on Plover Cove When I was running Stage 10 of the Maclehose trail during the Trailwalker, I realized (yet again) how boring it was. In fact, almost all of the reservoir trails in Hong Kong are dead boring except for the reservoir I personally own — Plover Cove. You don’t realize how…..
Back to my Plover Cove It is, of course, a well known fact that I own Plover Cove. Not that I need to prove anything regarding ownership, but I wanted to see what it would take for me to do a Sub 2 hours Plover Cove circuit. Again, having run Plover Cove eight times this…..
Recovery Run/Hike – Cloudy Hill, Pat Sin Leng and Plover Cove 112 – that’s the magic number. My total mileage for last week. Two words to summarize it – “too much!” So, after having already run 44kms this week, I wanted to do a lazy 37km recovery run to give my legs a chance to…..
Fulfilling responsibilities + admiring the beauty of Plover Cove The Webster dictionary defines “responsibility” as “moral, legal or mental accountability”. Shirking responsibility is defined as “evading the performance of an obligation”. As one of the owners of Plover Cove, I have assumed full responsibility of ensuring that the trail is free of litter and well…..
Cloudy Hill, Pat Sing Leng and a SUPER HOT Plover Cove One of the hardest 37km courses in Hong Kong has to be Tai Wo MTR to Tai Mei Tuk via Cloudy Hill, Pat Sin Leng and Plover Cove. And when it is HOT, I promise you – you ain’t gonna love this course! It’s…..
Sunday was officially supposed to be rest day. But during the “resting” moments, glimpses of Plover Cove kept flashing in my mind. Like a responsible owner who matches words with not only action, but also with a lot of love and dedication, I instinctively decided to go on a spin around my reservoir. For the…..
Cloudy Hill, Pat Sin Leng AND Plover Cove We were supposed to have heavy thunderstorms yesterday. So, I conveniently used Hong Kong Observatory’s weather forecast as an excuse to sleep in, instead of getting up early in the morning to do a trail run. When I finally awoke from my slumber, I was full of…..
The d-day Call it the d-day or the moment of reckoning or the ultimate test of time. It was THE BIG DAY and it finally arrived. It was going to be the day I would be settling the Plover Cove dispute once and for all. It was going to be the day I was hoping…..
There are some who simply talk the talk. And, there are others who talk the talk and walk the walk. I don’t belong to either category. Instead, I belong to a special category that I like to call “Talk the talk and run the run”. This category is exclusive to trail runners who have successfully…..
It looks like my Plover Cove has unintentionally become the target of acquisition for many unqualified Hong Kong trail runners. If you do not know what I am talking about, you’ve probably been living under a rock on Mars for the longest time. But, as a refresher, let me tell you what makes my Plover…..
