My 10k Mizuno
well, after days of preparing for this race, 8 days actually, all i did was my routine FLAT run.. thinking that it would be enough for this race.. as usual being the cocky guy, thinking this would be a walk in the park wanting to hit 45 min and below.. well this is my journey from the day before the race: (bare with my coherent rambling)
Day before the race:
Went out at 1.30pm to pick up Ellaine to get our bibs and race goodie bag. but we got Picked up instead.. hehe (hi Wendy, i love your batmobile .. really i do) it was Ellaine’s friend Wendy who brought us to padang Merbuk to collect our stuff.. got there , collected out stuff.. scooted out from there and back to PJ, Justin and me was heading down to 1-Utama to meet up with Andrew, had lunch and dessert till late, (Oohh we had yummy desserts at Miss REEDS, so sinful, yet so tempting.. (pictures on the right ok) Russel joined us with Melany later into the evening for dinner, (sorry if i spelt your name wrongly girl) at about 9.pm i headed down to this pub in Hartamas called SODA, what a place.. dont even know where that is actually.. ahah sorry dudes i dont go clubbing or pubbing mah.. went off to SEPANG for this dragrace who i dont even know who was organising, not much of cars but heck.. its a DRAG!! (see pictures) not worth my RM30 bucks.. got caught in the rain as we were leaving Sepang at 1.30am, shit race starts at 7 but i am still awake.. OH NO!! somemore kana rain.. die lor..slept at 3.30am…ZzZZzzzzzZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
RACE DAY, 18th DECEMBER 2005 Mizuno WAVE RUN
would you believe it, got up late.. boo hoo .. managed to pick justin up and drove like a mad man to Padang Merbuk, saw lots of runners chatting up, feel like home.. hehe .. young, old, big, small, all races unite.. called Sam and Ellaine came by later with Wendy.. so the day was chilly and was a good day to run (so i thought) this is my experience ok.. hehe .. i usually train under the hot sun so my body adapts easily to hot sunny days.. GUN STARTED, RACE STARTED, my BODY DIDNT WOR!! skarly like frozen like that .. hehe .. i was like oh no.. this is too cold for me.. my whole body didnt had any blood rushing.. thought i was going to give up the run liao..but i was ahead with the elite pack.. boo hoo .. i had to slow down.. cause this is when i saw the first HILL !! ARGH !! hehe..i thought going up hill was bad.. try going downhill.. i didnt know how to catch my momentum so, i was walking all the way down.. all the time lost walking downhill .. HMPH ! my body didnt warm up till i hit the 6 – 7K mark, thats when i got into sync and happily running.. well finished the race at 156 position out of maybe 1000k ppl or less i dont know , not to say very good for my standard.. not to say very bad.. hoping to know my time soon .. (check my pics out.. really cool)
oh thank you WENDY for being our cheerleader and also our water girl ! you were great ! the race was great, ELLAINE, MANFRED and JUSTIN thanks for showing your support and running with me, you guys were fast !! see you all next year,catch ya all later..
