woke up at 4 this morning, feeling the rush of Malakoff, down all my breakfast and banana, packed all my bags and bike into the car, did a last minute check on everything, well everything was good,
went over to pick jason up at 5.45am, called him at 5.15 still asleep ler.. aha .. well its ok, reach Dataran Merdeka at around 6.15am, no cars yet, as you can see the pics my car is parked near the square ler.. hehe, unpacked all my stuff as seeing Jason still tired .. jason jason, (aka coach cum photographer cum busboy) well if it wasnt for him most of these photos wont be here,
anyway . parked my bike at the designated slot and it was 026, ahah .. somehow i feel that all my race numbers have to have 6 in it, ahha .. my singapore marathon, my Northface, my Axn, guess its fated to be 666 (i am the devil) well cute little devil la, not those big bulky ugly red ass dude showing his forking skills with that big over sized table fork.
met a couple of my friends there, Don,Cecil and Jasmine, straight up before the race starts at around 7am, i got this feeling that i wanna pee, but no toilet around. so nah .. kept it in, (WRONG MOVE) ahha .. Gunned off at 7.30am, and yipee we are off, i took my slow stride as usual, i think even slower, cause i had this pain on my right side of my abdomen, so many people passing me, 😦 so sad.. BARGER must be the cheese na’an and Mee goreng plus the Milo Ais and Coke i down at 10pm last night.. shit.. should be la.. i am not sure.. the stomach has this sharp pain poking on me, guess i wont know what food i ate wrong.. but defintly no more mamak for me before race days. past my 5k, i am beggining to burp out excess air, feels good.. now i can run faster.i did my 50min 10k, i know i would, running into transition 1,
then off on my bike, sped off like a demon as i know i reserved my energy for this and my last 5k, moving moving, the sharp pain in turn becomes AIR, i kept burping air out from my mouth, must be the powergel mixed with my water and whatsevers inside my stomach, felt abit better now, moving even faster, (MISTAKE NUMBER 2) DONT MOVE FASTER (MAINTAIN) there is where i got my cramp on my calf, shit.. aRGH ! loss about 5min stretching out my calves.. agony of wasted time, the whole 45k i took it easy cause i worry a bigger CRAMP will gnaw my calves and thats it for my ride.. ahah .. so i maintain my speed about 20 – 25kph, good slopes and hills. i love it. i was downing my powergel at one point i nearly mistaken my route, ahaha .. skidded my backtire like some stunt dude.. ahah..ya la .. keep pyschoing myself, say this aint fun .. this aint good, quit ler.. ahah .. CECIL pass me on my lap2, he lap 3 liao lor.. 😦
came into last transition, change into my running shoe’s got out from the transition wanna take some yummy looking 100+, grabbed the can’s but shit .. it was only half filled ler.. so i accidentally knocked like 5 cans down.. sorry la, i want attention ma.. 😦 why they didnt give water? 100+ aiyo .. so gassy ..
Last 5k to run, running and running, but i felt so so slow, i over took some guys who OVER TOOK ME at the bike section thinking they king of the hills.. hmph .. kasi i chance la.. my first dualathon ler.. haha .. it felt good that my running legs are more power, into the 3km , i got into the swing of my run.. ahah .. got even faster.. at the finish line i passed two more dudes.. then at the near finish line the sache was waiting for me ler.. UNTIL !!
until one fella, macha, where is you number? what is your number.. i told him .. 026..026.. i showed him then he .. oh ok .. SHIT ! the other guy nearly over took me.. so i ran infront .. and we both landed on the timing mat together ! GERAM !! suppose to be me faster ler.. until that MACHA LA ! dang .. dont worry .. i still have the MMDS2 coming up in putrajaya. this time i did 3hrs 01min, i promise everyone that i will hit 2.50min below. i will train for the putrajaya second leg more properly now.
