2nd simulation for Bendang and Century Ride. Doing 19km from home - Tmn Sinar Mentari (TSM) - pekan - Thye Eng Plantation - AIMST and back home.

An easy run started at 7:15am. Placed a water bottle at Thye Eng junction, by time i return from TSM to Thye Eng junction i will cover 10km. Enough for me to basah my rengkong for another 9km more.

Just an easy run, enjoy the morning scenery in pekan, main road, taman houses, hutan kelapa barli and bendang.

Finished in 1:33mins. Kaki - OK.

The menu was kayuh from Dewan Kenangan, Sungai Petani to Taman Rimba, Alor Star. Will be cover 100km+. There were 6 of us. Reza, Rafee, Art, Fauzi and Brahim the tok ketua, preparing for Century Ride, Ipoh on 6th May.

Target.. must be >100km

After 4km just to exit from SP town, meet-up with 4 young cyclists age 14-17 from Bagan/Butterworth. They escort with their trainer. Kitaorg racun depa suruh ikut kita pi Alor Star. Depa agreed. So 10 of us kayuh together..

fuh! best betul kayuh ramai. Yang slow jadi laju.

But that last only for 20km. Can't tahan. Aku cabut while climbing the hill at Pewaja Steel and speeding for 10km, 20km and reach Taman Rimba, Alor Star in 2:06.

Taman Rimba - The drop zone.
Tutuh breakfast and refreshment. The young cyclists not familiar with A.Star town, they got lost when searching for Taman Rimba. Luckily Reza went for rescue.

Balik.. using same route. Aku ride behind the group. Follow their pace.

Reaching SP, Art was hit by a Police lorry. - Hantu betul! Loklak punya drebar. Polisss tuu.. Nasib baik cuma cedera ringan. A bit scratches on hand. But the bike's gear had problem.

<500metre to end point, my rear tyre got puncture, Malaih nak tukar tube.. just pushing the bike to the car.

It was noon that time. Aku lapaq nasik.

Next week.. easy ride to Gunung Inas, Baling. - Merangkak..
Meh.. ikut kitaorg.

Mon: X
Tue: X
Wed: X
Thu: X
Fri: Run. 6km. Trail route. Easy.
Sat: Run. 19km. 1:31mins
Sun: Bike. 120km

No workouts on weekdays. Pi mesin & racun rumput at piece of land that i bought 4 years ago. Tanah lot kampung. Almost 4 months not visit and the lalang tinggi paras pinggang. Maybe i should put a sign there "Hutan Simpanan Kekal - Penceroboh akan di dakwa" with a gun-man shooting at intruder. Took me four days. Mesin with in-law - 2days, Another 2, cakar2 + bakar + racun.

Initialy i was planning to build house on it. I love living in kampung style. Panjat pokok nyior, bela ayam, lastik burung, main konda-kondi... primary and secondary school are walking distance.

But suddenly our current home loan approved - duh!. Aku ingat/jangka kena reject and I bought that land as plan B. Anyway i kept that as investment.

Test new trail route. Passing hutan kelapa sawit, getah, remote kampung. Only can be reach via jalan tanah merah. Some kids waving to to me and said hi to old folks. Actually i'm looking for shady area/route that far from traffic. But not too deep into the jungle.. Kang babi ligan aku.

Saturday & Sunday
As a simulation. Thinking to take part in 21km Larian Bendang and 160km in Century Ride on 5th-6th May - Testing.. whether my kaki could tahan or not or kaput.

Using my normal running route Home - Tmn Sinar Mentari - Thye Eng - Semeling - home. Last 2km was hell to me. May be no long distance training since KLIM. Finished in 1:31 @19km.

Bike. With Riza.
Start from Sg Layar - Eastern bypass - JPJ - Sidam - Padang Serai - Pongsu Seribu - Kepala Batas - Ptg Sintok - Ptg Bendahari - Kota Kuala Muda - Pantai Merdeka.

@75km we join >30 riders from Kulim at Pantai Merdeka. 28 of them already registered for Century Ride while wakil from SP - 5, including me.

Join a group ride until main road, then they heading back to Kulim and we turn left to Sungai Petani. Thru Tikam Batu, Sg Pasir and Sg. Layar.

Again.. tertirap lagi aku bawah garaj. Hopefully i could tekan another 40km later @Ipoh.

Need to strategies and plan properly. I'm trying to kayuh non-stop without pit-stop, having energy bar and drinks on bike. Puhh..puff.. puuuhh JANGAN CRAMP!!

Cerita lari..

TONIGHT! - Prison Break
Season: 2, Episode 1: "Manhunt"
Channel 8, 9 April @10:30pm.

As night turns into day over Fox River Penitentiary, a hand meticulously works over a crypto-quote. Off-screen, FBI Agent Alexander Mahone asks, "The escapees -- who were they?"

Another agent tells us; "Michael Scofield, structural engineer, five years for armed robbery. Benjamin Miles Franklin, former U.S. Army, eight years for possession of stolen goods. John Abruzzi, don of the crime family of the same name. Life without parole for conspiracy to commit murder. Charles "Haywire" Patoshik, sixty years for 2nd degree murder. Fernando Sucre, five years for aggravated robbery. David "Tweener" Apolskis, five years for grand larceny. Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell. Life for six counts of kidnapping and murder. Lincoln Burrows. Scheduled to die next week for the murder of President Reynold’s brother."

Mahone asks how long it’s been since they went over the wall? "8:00 p.m. last night." Scofield and Burrows are brothers. And Scofield’s the mastermind of this thing? I want everything they have on him.

Full review.. can read at official website.

Ceh! can't wait for tonight. Everything will be in silent mode between that hour except the TV.

Training: Week4 March07

Mon: Run. Home <-> Thye Eng. 9k. 41.37. Training-PR.
Tue: X
Wed: Brick. Home <-> Office. Bike-47km (15km TimeTrial 26.55mins) and TrailRun-3.5km.
Thu: X
Fri: Run. Home <-> Thye Eng. 9k. 41.28. Training-PR.
Sat: X
Sun: Bike. Home <-> Alor Star. 117km. Group ride.

The Kaki felt don't want to run. The Kepala-Hotak said "you must go out and run". @6pm Office. I delayed myself from going back home, sudah kena racun from Kaki. Kaki really want to pull-out. Reach home @6:30. Too late already to go out and run, by the time you reach home almost magrib dah.. said The Kaki.

Kepala-Hotak said.. "Plug-in the mp3 player increased the volume. Shut-up and being deaf to Kaki. Just serelom your pegasus."

Half-way @3km. Kaki almost surrender and request me to u-turn.

Kepala-Hotak said "Heard any voice?... Keep on running."

Tekak mencelah "Woit.. lapaq ayeq gila babi. U-turn laa.."

"Keep on running" said Kepala-Hotak again.

..And finally i did a training PB (TPB). Erased a 3 months old timing.
Guess, i doing best when in pain.

After read PCC 15km Time Trial 2007 result from boladuaapi.. i challenge myself for 15km time trial. Start from Office using 33km long-cut route to Home-Bedong.

Did a warm-up cycling for 1km. Start my stopwatch and slowly increased the pace kilobyte-by-kilobyte until at Gurun. Palat! keretapi lalu pulak. Had to stop. Lost 1-2mins. Then continue with fast pace until reach 15km mark @Bedong. Tertunduk aku.. meleleh ayeq idung. From Bedong, continue to Bandar Laguna Merbok, Semeling and back to Bedong with easy pace.

15km Time trial = 26.55

Reach home at 6pm. Weather cantek ala-ala redup nak hujan + berangin. Still early to stop workout. Parked the Trek and changed to running shoes. Trying new trail route thru ladang kelapa barli (sawit), ladang getah, kampong estate and jalan tanah merah. Only 3.5km. I guess.

Again, i erased Monday TPB timing on same situation.

Long ride with Riza and new friend - Mie. Working as bicycle mechanic, Mie said almost 3 months not kayuh. The menu was Sungai Petani <-> Alor Star thru old/main road. 117km.. We kayuh together until reach Taman Hutan Rimba, Alor Star. After that we took so long for breakfast and chat (1:20mins) and by the time want to kayuh back... matahari sudah tinggi. It was really hot day although there were trees on both sides of the road but matahari dok atas kepala.

Nearly to 1pm. Panas. Reached home.. and teruih tidoq bawah garaj. Petang - demam until next day.

..jom mai Kedah

Received Larian Bendang last week, convert it to pdf and post in this blog to share with others. Did not take a look the form until one of my friends ask for detail.

Surprisingly the organizer really take note and accepted my ideas, they really want to improve this annual event. I felt glad and honored that the organizer really concern/respect to all the runners.

They still maintain my previous ideas and kept on continue apply improvements to get as much of the participation from elite and recreation runners like i am.

I believe a successful event not because of prizes offer but a well organized and understand the runner needs, that will be remembered and return again.

Hopefully this year Larian Bendang akan penuh satu Stadium Darulaman and they will enjoy the scenic view of paddy field.
