BESRAYA HIGHWAY CHALLENGE 2018 RUNNING CLINIC & RACE DAY PROGRAMME
I’m really looking forward to running on the BESRAYA HIGHWAY for the first time on 29th April 2018 for two main reasons.
First reason is that, from my past experience, any IJM Sporting Event is always conducted professionally, well organised and enjoyable.
Secondly, I love to run on closed highways because it’s devoid of noisy and speeding motorised vehicles.
So, to whet our running appetites, Co-Organisers EC Pixel & Besraya Highway organised a precursor running clinic which was conducted by SMART Running Coach, Edan Syah & Manager Jolene. Here is what transpired….
🤸🏃Pre-Event | BESRAYA HIGHWAY CHALLENGE RUNNING CLINIC
🧑RUN SMART Coach | Edan Syah
Topic | Smart Training Principles
Organisers | BESRAYA HIGHWAY & EC PIXELS
Date | 01 April 2018 (7am~9am)
Venue | Taman Pudu Ulu, Kuala Lumpur
Thank You To Coach Edan, SMART Runners Jolene & Brian, BESRAYA, and EC Pixels for conducting a useful & enjoyable Running Clinic.
At the centre of Taman Pudu Ulu is a huge designer canopy, and it was there that our coach Edan greeted us.
Edan briefed us on the 5 key principles of SMART Running before, he led us through a thorough warm-up stretching session.
🤓What Is SMART Running?
S = Specific (Be specific when setting running goals – What/Where/When/How) ➡️https://youtu.be/wUjnqtu3Rig
M = Measurable (Heart Rate Monitor is an important tool to gauge your fitness progress) ➡️https://youtu.be/O_JA4Lygz-E
A = Attainable (Allow time for recovery) ➡️https://youtu.be/vdmM17dgVnQ
R = Realistic (Know your fitness level) ➡️https://youtu.be/qAaSgtA7gkI
T = Timely (Fix timeline to complete goal) ➡️https://youtu.be/Z2eGqEkjHAY
The finale was a 3km Tempo Run which meant that we should run at a consistent pace each round in line with our individual REALISTIC speed. WATCH IT ➡️https://youtu.be/NUFUqIMHRGE
Follow Your Beat️
In conclusion, it is vital that every runner systematically MONITOR their heart rates during running, as well as resting so that we can measure accurately our current PERFORMANCE and PROGRESS, and run safely within our REALISTIC physical limits, while giving our bodies enough RECOVERY TIME….

To set things in motion, the first race will be happening at Besraya Highway [E9] which offers a 13km challenge run and a 6km run that is happening on 29 April.
