Damn! really busy week. All of those were stress. Ride a motobike stress.. drive a car.. stress.. get in to office.. lagi la. Still thinking..

"Where do you want to go run today?".

Running to Gurun.. naaah!, running.. to Semeling.. naah!, running to back to Bedong naahh!..

i need new route, new track, new PR.

Next week, one big batu coming. Kena jadi Project Manager for one of projects valued hundred thousands over. Hopefully my boss not Donald Trump and said "You're fired!"
Ya..yaaaa..yaap.. will kick..-off after KLIM..

So lega.. my wife already came back from P.Langkawi. Alauddin, start making weird things when his mom around.. naik lemak, teasing Jasmin, make both of us naik angin.. Last night, he sip a perfume!. Luckily he is OK today.

Tomorrow, Padang Besar on the way!. So excited can cross border, like crossing finish line. We will go by van with Alex & geng harimau bintang (Bukit Mertajam Leopard). Paid RM 80++ pax, hotel, transport arranged (to hotel, ground zero, makan angin around Padang Besar) except soru and registeration. after that, RUN!

Half Marathon Training @ Lake Garden

Wednesday 09/02,

Accidentally i tersinggah Taiping after drove back from Ipoh for outstation works on tuesday, though i want to straight away drove back to Bedong.. coz tomorrow got my officemate wedding kenduri. but.. badan too tired already.. hate long distance drive. but not on claim heheeee..

So.. pepagi buta after subuh, went to Lake Garden (LG). Plan to meet with Zul to run together around Lake Garden. Waited him came down from Bukit Larut (his family spend 2D/1N at Bukit Larut).. 15mins.. no batang hidung.. 7:30am, ran with slow pace around big loop of LG.

LG, 7am, already alot of people, though today public holiday & CNY.. LG sunyi.. but i'm wrong. Chinese.. pun ramai. Tak pi raya ka? Semalam main bunga api sikit punya hebat pong pang pong pang.. tak letih ka?.

LG, never sunyi punya.. even late night pun riuh rendah.. with tiger, elephant, cipan, monyet.. that is in the Zoo but if outside, pun riuh rendah... i don't know la..

Did 3.5km x 6 laps.. fuh! half marathon!
1 - 18.39
2 - 18.18
3 - 18.14
4 - 18.20
5 - 6.25 + 18.06
6 - 18.37
Distance: 21km (1:56.41) - Personal best training run

5th lap, kena jawap panggilan alam. Before, while at 4th lap, already received a ringing tone and toilet still close... huh! mampus! celah mana tak simpan nih.. Luckily it's open after i pass by at 5th lap. First customer..

Nowadays, my in-laws also sudah rajin join me for jogging. They came with my wife & kids at 8:15am. Both of them did a slow jog and my wife played with kids at playground.

Actually, on Monday night we plan to balik Taiping, easy for me to drive to Ipoh for outstation work on next day... My wife call them to prepare some dinner upon reach and they ask my wife to pack also kids shoes & track bottom.
"Kita pi jogging dengan atuk dan opah pagi esok" said my in-law to cucu kesayangan dia.. Alauddin. So shock to hear that.. betoi ka? Usually they continue sleep after Subuh.

But, suddenly ada big batu coming and we postpone to next day morning (Tuesday) to Taiping & Ipoh.

27 February..

Ada larian 3 serangkai.. Semua best2 and also got pro & con. Mostly the con is $$$. Looking on my Marathon training schedule, that week i should cover 32k. Daripada training run without medal.. so decide to run a race on 27 February. Where?..

Option 1
1. Padang Besar
a. My first international run.
b. Go with Alex, car pool..
c. 21km
d. Finisher medals... i heard laa.. but reading on brochure.. like rat looking at tongkoi kayu.
a. Kena buat border pass.
b. Register/lodging - pakai nasib.
c. $$ but convert to baht.. $$$$$

2. Nilai 3 Half Marathon
a. Lucky draw.. Shop lot/ car.. if lucky laaa..
b. Domestic run
c. 21km
a. Too far
b. $$
c. No transport.. harap kawan.
d. Medal 300.. but tak boleh harap, banyak geng kilat.

3. Tamirin Run
a. Zul & Najib maybe will join
b. Nearest @ Bukit Mertajam
a. 10km - too short to cover my Marathon training schedule
b. Medal 1-10th.. sure no medal for me.

Think, will run at Padang Besar.

Yesterday, (tuesday) satu family kena diarrhoea. After went for dinner at one of stalls near Sungai Petani clock tower. Opposite Klinik Pergigian.. Both of us took an MC yesterday and flat a whole day. Damn!!

Lesson learn: Later for KLIM, won't try having dinner outside, 1-2 weeks before...

For long distance run this weekend, probably will run alone after subuh, from my home (Taman Semeling Indah - TSI) to Pekan Bedong, u-turn go up to Tupah, u-turn to TSI. It takes more than 24km. 30km.. i think.
