Report 10km Time Trial

Seem no form event i thought it was fun ride main-main with junior cyclist until Reza smsed me early that morning..

"PERHATIAN ACARA ITT (individual time trial) & TTT (team time trial) 10KM TERBUKA (Lelaki & Wanita) PADA 22/7/07 AHAD. TEMPAT DI BAKAR KAPOR, PENAGA SPU (seberang perai utara). MASA DAFTAR 2:40 PTG & MULA 3:30PTG. TERBUKA UTK SBG (seberang) PERAI PP (pulau pinang) & DAERAH KULIM. HADIAH UTK (L) ITT MEDAL 1-8. ITT(W) MEDAL 1-5. UTK TTT (L) SHJ TROFI (1 team = 3 pelumba) HADIAH UTK 3 TEAM SHJ"

Woih! sesungguh depa nih! Siap ada medal. Browsing back the message.. i was attracted by number of medals offered.

After Zohor pick-up Reza and 1/2hour drove to Penaga with dark cloud above us. Most of SP Bikers were there.. Fauzi, Brahim and new member Wichan a/l Aun (keturunan siam/thai) plus Reza and me. After jot down my name and no fee registration, less than 10 veteran (>30yrs) cyclists turned up.

More 50 were junior cyclists came from Penang and Seberang Perai - mostly secondary boys and girls. The youngest cyclist probably a primary school kid accompany by his parents.

A kampung race style where paddy fields and sungai Kuala Muda flow along the a small letter 'b' shape course.. i started kecut perut after looking the young riders warming up.

After voted as 2nd in ITT, rain start pouring down and the organizer decide to start immediate. Yikeeess!! - tak sempat nak warm-up. Not even 100m.

The 1st rider gone+pecut, the volunteers urge me to jump/clip on the pedals and will release in 1mins interval. Pfooof!.. in moderate pace. Check my speed..

Oh! Anak Ayam Serama! - Speedometer aku freeze. Kena air hujan. 0km/h and 0km distance. Try buka/pasang balik. Mati jugak. Inside i was ^%@#%^#@#)(*&&!@. Without speedometer.. macam kayuh tak dak arah. I don't know my km/h, i don't know my distance, i don't when to kayuh moderate and i don't know when to kayuh all-out.

Probably <4km i caught the first cyclist. Head bend-down, hand on lower handle.. just maintain the speed. Try asking for speed from marshall's motocycle.. no answer. - Pekak!.

Stopwatch pon lupa nak tekan.. so i was depend on my clock watch. Earlier they said 10k best time last year was 15+mins. Started @3:X6pm (as i remembered) by 3:(X+1)6pm i should cover >6km. Sprint all-out is a must.

But.. was it all-out already? Berapa speed? Berapa km more? That Qs play inside my kepala.

The marshall wanted to left me but i said i don't know the route and he escort me until last junction. Turn right, I saw a bus start to move after drop some passengers, i start to potong but cars came on opposite direction - Mangkuk!

Gave "an asking way" sign to cars on oposite direction and hammered hard to finish line. - Zaaaassss!
But that not hard enough.. because ayeq hidung aku belom meleleh lagik.

Next - Team Time Trial.
The TTT was delay because of heavily rain for half an hour. The organizer warned the cyclist to be extra careful on the wet course.

I was team with Reza and Fauzi as SP1 and we're 2nd last team started before SP2 team. Hujan lebat. Again my speedometer freeze. Once start, i kayuh follow their pace. Fauzi & Reza did very well, they push themself to ligan my speed and drag them at last 2km to finish line.

After result annoucement... luck not on me.
My 10km ITT official result was 17:16. Average speed was 34.74km/h moreover missed a top8 medal. My TTT - 2nd last. 19mins something.

It was great experience and exposure to us in bike racing especially in TimeTrial. None of us experience it before. For Wichan, it was first bike race for him. We did a bike race, We did a TT... eemmm probably next.. a tour - maybe.

But i think Bakar Kapor, Penaga not suitable place/route to organized TT. A lot of public transports and got 2 cornar-maut (had to brake and understand ada budak pompuan jatuh kat cornar-maut). Got policemen.. but main ayeq banyak.

Training: Week3 July07

Mon: Bike @Home <-> Office. 26km
Tue: Bike @Home <-> Office. 26km + Practise swimming @Harvard Hotel
Wed: Rest
Thu: Bike @Home <-> Office. 26km + Practise swimming @Harvard Hotel
Fri: Rest
Sat: Bike @MRSM Merbok. Test time trial. (TTT 10km x 3) + 20km light
Sun: 8km Trail run in morning and bike @Penaga in evening. Individual/Team Time Trial 10km x 2

Long time not doing cost reduction activities between my home to office. Cycling from/to home-office could save some RM but... that saving RM goes into the pool. I had to pay RM5 each before jump into pool for swimming practise.

The instructor had oversea assignment for 2 weeks and he advises me to practice, before he teach next lesson. So after office hour I went to Harvard hotel. A peace and quiet hotel and I swam alone. Nobody in/around the pool. So i'm 'free' to practice my free style stroke. Tengelam tengah kolam kaaa.. Tercungap2 naik capai tebing kaaa.. Ayeq melocak 5-6kaki kaaa… Batuk tertelan ayeq klorin kaaa.. - sapa peduli.

..but not at BLM (Bandar Laguna Merbok) Club House.. segan aku. Bebudak, Amoi, AhSoh, Apek semua macam ikan.. sup-sap-sup-sap. Kolam dah la kecik. Ramai plak tuh.

Saturday – Practice 10k team time trial
Sunday – First time doing a Time Trial Race for individual and team. Only 10km. As a short report… It was kecut perut, tercungap2, keciwa, sejuk, terketaq, teramat-amat-keciwa and best. Heheeee.. Long report will post soon.

Al-Fatihah kepada En. Mohamed Zubir Zainal Abidin – I don’t know him… Moga roh dirahmati olehNya. Al-Fatihah.

Larian Lebuhraya

Konsep Larian Lebuhraya
37 ke 1: Sempena kemerdekaan yang ke-50

Idea untuk mengadakan larian Iebuh raya ini dengan nama 37 ke 1, dicetus dari berita terkini yang tersiar dalam surat khabar mengenai kedudukan negara kita daiam satu tinjauan yang telah dibuat oleh Negara Barat. Tinjauan yang dibuat adalah tentang kedudukan sesebuah negara dari aspek kestabilan, keamanan, dan kedamaian yang terdapat dalam negaranya

Dalam tinjauan yang telah dibuat dalam kalangan 121 buah negara, yang telah mencapai kemajuan dan negara-negara yang sedang membangun, didapati MALAYSIA telah mendapat tempat ke 37!

Malaysia dengan pelbagai agama, ketutrunan, kebudayaan dan bahasa telah mengatasi banyak negara yang maju dalam aspek keamanan dan kesejahteraan. Ini adalah sata perkara yang patut dibanqgakan oleh setiap orang rakyat Malaysia

Kedudukan ini adalah hasil usaha semua mantan pemimpin negara dan pemimpin yang ada sekarang. Kedudukan ini boleh diperbaiki sekiranya semua rakyat sedar tentang perkara ini serta berusaha untuk menyumbang terhadap keharmonian negara seperti yang dihasratkan dalam Falsafah Pendidikan Guru dan Rukun Negara.

Sehubungan dengan itu, Malaysian Masters Athletics Association mengelola larian ini untuk menyedarkan semua rakyat tentang kedudukan negara kita, serta untuk membina tekad untuk memperbaiki kedudukan kita dari 37 ke 1 (pertama)

Fight Back to School - Swimming Class 1

Registered for swimming class at club house - Bandar Laguna Merbok. The intructor named Mr. Goh, a certified swimming instructor with water safety macam CPR and etc. An swimming intructor by evening.. teaching kids and adult too.

After knowing a bit about my background as runner, cyclist.. and know zero about swimming...he laughing.


"I'm sure you will tenggelam"

For intro, before jump into the pool, he told about water safety. Faham pasang-surut air laut, not to camping/night too near the river or water will increaced if rain coming. Knowing the water depth. Different between in-door and open water. No panic in the water - even a pro can drown if panic. And etc.

2nd - Open eyes in the water.
If can't.. that person had a water phobia. That what he said. So he tested by showing the finger number under water and i had show it the same finger number without google. - Passed.

3rd - Hold the breath (in the water)
Nearly 2 minutes. Passed. He said.. average person took less than a minute. Yeah! i used be dived into sungai and tembak ikan after balik mengaji. Buat senapang pakai papan then mata harpon pakai jejari rim taya besikal. Not only ikan.. udang, katak and kaki - Ouch!

4th - Floating.
He ask me dive and hug both knees - like a ball. The theory is that.. bola akan melantun balik once you release it under water. In emergency case, transform(er) into ball and slowly akan timbul atas air.

I hold the breath, turn into ball shape. Do it twice, tierce, fourth and fifth... tengelam. Damn it! tak terapung!.

Another style. Do ultraman.. he said, after ball style not succeed.
Straight both hands and legs on water surface. No kicking. Relax and loose the muscle. Do it once, twice, tierce.. lost count. - kaki & pinggang mula tenggelam.

He said i didn't loose enough my pinggang and legs, packed with muscle. No lemak. If got lemak sure timbul punya and my body.. keras.

"Your body should lembut macam sotong" - he's joking but I take it serious. He advice to train/try/practice again. If could (floating), then i could save some energy for stroking.

5th - Crocodile, slide-down into pool floor and stay under.
Kacang. As my body mudah tenggelam.

6th - Gliding.
Gliding from pool wall and floor. After 3-4 times managed to do it, especially from the floor. I tried more to get right body position for maximum momentum.

Gliding from the pool... couldn't get far as pinggang and kaki start to tenggelam. - Can't float.

End of first of twelve lessons in an hour half.

Jumaat 29Jun - Balik Kampung.

Dulu masa zaman sekolah, tanah keliling rumah aku penuh dengan pokok getah. Kalau ada lagi sure aku dah kaya dah la ni... Jadi penoreh. Biasanya bila lepas habih sekolah dan mengaji aku tolong diaorang mesin getah - buat getah keping. Hari minggu "full force" kutip susu getah sampai habih buat getah keping. Cuma tang part toreh tu.. depa tak kasi aku buat.. takut "luka" kena batang pokok.

7-8tahun lepas, pokok getah pun dah tua dan org tua aku pon dah tak larat dah, depa tanam pokok manggih (mangosteen/manggis). Banyak la jugak. Tu pon 3-4pokok mati babi hutan sondoi... tapi orgtua aku tak putus asa.. tanam balik.

Masuk tahun ni, dah kali ke-2 manggih berbuah. Banyak pokok berbuah serentak. Manggih..memang favorite aku. Seumur hidup aku rasanya aku tak pernah beli kat kedai. Tak best. Kekadang kena tang kematu or isi merah/lebam.. lagi satu berat lebih tang kulit.

Aku suka makan atas pokok. Isi gebu. Hoggag dahan. Baling kulit kat orang bawah. Minggu ni balik lagi jumpa orangtua...
