What’s better than having an ice-cream cone under such a wonderful weather and scenery, right after jogging?

Shing Mun Reservoir, jog and hike

In My Appreciation,My Art,My Hiking,My Long Run on 26/10/2013 by catherineyylam

 

 

The sustaining rainfall this summer contributed high level of water reserve for this dry season.   The wonderful sunlight not only brought out vivid colour, but also initiated shadows and reflections to symphonize with each other, delivering such an amazing and beautiful scenery.

Though I have been running along Tolo countless times, this is my first time to discover the wavy mural…

 

More and more texts on running are issued: –

Running With the Pack by Mark Rowlands; Running Like a Girl by Alexandra Heminsley – review

Two books on the joy of running are equally inspirational but in very different ways

“But most runners seek more than the finish line, or the end of a training run. Many also take running to be an important way to arrive at some truth about themselves and the things in life that they care about. for many of us, running is a path to self-discovery, a part of our pursuit of happiness, and provides a time of solitude within which we are able to reflect on our lives and some of the bigger questions in life. And it is here that the goals of the runner and the philosopher overlap. Both running and philosophy, at their best, help us to learn something about ourselves, what is really valuable in life, and perhaps even something about the nature of reality itself. “ Michael Austin @ “Running & Philosophy,  a marathon for the mind”

渣打馬拉松另類結果公布 (1)

In My Concern,My Long Run on 03/03/2013 by catherineyylam

 

健康空氣行動破天荒發起「馬拉松一路跑、一路度」行動,邀得四位不介意成績的跑手 (兩位全馬、兩位十公里),於比賽日全程揹住監測器沿路量度空氣污染(微細懸浮粒子、PM 2.5)水平。

結果出左啦!先講全馬賽事:

  1. 「三隧三橋」雖是香港特色,但就算封哂路,西隧及長青隧道之 PM 2.5 平均濃度,均高於全馬賽事平均水平(見圖)。

  2. 西九龍公路其中一點污染特別高。綜合跑手觀察加上我們估計,這可能與對面路面有車經過排出廢氣有關。

  3. 綜合環保署監測站數據,及設於青馬大橋 U Turn 位之定點監測水平,比賽日之 PM 2.5 背景濃度約為每立方米30微克,空氣質素可謂不過不失。

健康空氣行動評語:

兩條隧道污染物濃度高出平均水平每立方米5微克,但各位千萬別少看這5微克的上升!

研究*發現,當空氣中的 PM 2.5每立方米增加10微克,心臟病患者死亡率會升至兩成!而且,運動期間跑手肺部特別活躍。而且,運動時「肺通氣量」是平常的10至16倍,所以,跑手比普通人多吸入10倍污染物。

如果比賽日背景污染偏高,隧道污染情況將更嚴重;特別是西隧,暗斜而且設於比賽較後段,西隧將成為高危路段,隨時誘發跑手的心臟病或其他隱疾!

以跑手健康着想,主辦單位可否考慮隧道以外的路線呢?隧道外空氣質素更好,而且跑隧道也較沉悶吧。

下集將續談十公里賽事結果。http://thehousenews.com/nature/%E6%B8%A3%E6%89%93%E9%A6%AC%E6%8B%89%E6%9D%BE%E5%8F%A6%E9%A1%9E%E7%B5%90%E6%9E%9C%E5%85%AC%E5%B8%83-2/

*註:二月英國《歐洲心臟期刊》(European Heart Journal)刊載空氣污染研究。研究追蹤十五萬四千名在04至07年因心臟病發入院的病人,並跟進他們出院後三年零七個月的健康情況。

This is one of my concerns which keep me from joining this event.   Referring to the article, it is essential for the organizer to re-design the route.
