Quote of the Day

I love the feeling you get after a workout. You know that you've done something great for yourself, with a little effort. There's no cost, but the payoff—feeling good about the way I look—is huge.

Report: Nestle - World Walking Day 2011

By Aiman Cheah

Venue: Water Sport Centre, Precint 6, Putrajaya
Date: 20 November 2011 | 8.00 am
Distance: 5km (5 000 steps)
Time: 1hr 15mins
Organizer: Nestle

A non-competition event. I took the opportunity to walk with my children. The route is similar with Tesco Walk For Children earlier of the year.

At the start

1Malaysia drum. Also similar to the performance during the Tesco Walk For Children.

Photos courtesy of

My timing was good as while 'filling' up the stomach with drinks and food - Milo, breakfast cereal and noodles, it was the lucky draw sessions. Only 26 prizes so it was a remote chance to strike.

It was a well organized event and followed the programme closely. Well done Nestle... truly Good Food, Good Life.

LunarGlide+2 review

Penang Bridge Marathon result is out now. Click here.

I finished half marathon distance in 1:55:27.53. Nearly 3 minute earlier compare to recent PJ Half Marathon 2011 - 1:58.08. I'm not setting any timing except target to cross finish line without walking. Glad I could make it.

I wore my rusty Nike LunarGlide+ last Sunday. Initially I was thinking to retire that pair of shoes. Buat pakai pi jalan-jalan and going to office. But my new Nike LunarGlide+2 really troublesome. My legs hurts after did 3~4 long run training and racing @PJ Half. I had to do run-walk-run after reach 10k.

The LunarGlide+2 design abit different compare to LunarGlide+. They tight together lidah dengan kasut (I don't know technical term for that) so dia kasi problem bila nak bengkokkan kaki ke betis. Buat pakai jalan2 takpa, tapi after 10k run...peeeh sakit.

So I did minor surgery on that pair of shoes.

Test ran less 10km with modified LunarGlide2+ shoes is fine. But I need a long run test with it. Maybe in couple of weeks, before back to racing.

@APBIM, surprisingly first time my LunarGlide+ kasi sebijik blister on my feet after the run. I don't know why... Maybe because of socks, shoes got no absorber or kaki structure aku dah berubah? But after this I'm thinking about my trusted Nike Pegasus.

I don't want to try-test-try. Running shoes are expensive. Mau pakai Bata boleh tapi terima lar side-effect dia. For me, LunarGlide+2 is not suitable on the run... bawa pakai jalan2 memang dapat byk attraction :P

I have to bear with it for couple of years or maybe I put for auction. Anyone? Start with RM250.. Retail price was RM399.

Report: CICM Responsible Care Run

By Aiman Cheah

Venue: Setia Alam Welcome Centre, Shah Alam
Date: 13 November 2011 | 6.15 am
Category: B Men Veteran
Distance: 21km
Time: 2hrs 12mins 08secs (own sweet time)
Position: 98th
Organizer: Pacers Sports Enterprise

It was a nice feeling to complete a 21km race after a long break. I only 'train' for a week after a long rest due to sickness after the Perhentian Island Challenge. That challenge literally 'hentikan' my good form and I had to start from scratch 3 weeks of rest!

I reached Setia Alam Welcome Centre 10 minutes before the start. Unfortunately, I could not find a spot for parking and took a wrong turn to go to the building from behind. That was it. Any way, since my target was just to complete and not compete I just walked slowly to keep my luggage after parking along the road which was about half a kilometres away!

I took about 30 minutes to catch up with those tail end runners. There I found out that I was about 12 minutes late!

I started to walk and run with 9km to go. Not really due to out of breadth but more of a bad habit.

Anyway, to complete in less than 2hrs 30mins is good enough... the standard cut off time for finishing medals for the distance.

4th Betong - Tanoamaeroa Minimarathon 2011

Date: 03 December 2011 | 7:00am (Thailand time)
Venue: Clock Tower in Betong town, Thailand.
Distance 7~10km

I been following this event since 3 years ago. In 2009, I found it, a month after the event date. Last year we went for 3D2N family trip and I found it schedule the following week...duh! $$$ sudah yilek.. malas mau pi lagik.

For 2 years I notice this event held on Saturday on first week of December. So last Friday 18Nov, I did a family day trip. Purposely check on this event.

Yeah! right.. ada. The banner hang at Betong Stadium.

Betong, Thailand can be access thru Pengkalan Hulu, Perak. Less 20km from Baling. It nice kampong town. Their main commodity is rubber. You could see getah keping there. But in Malaysia no more already. Kita jual dlm bentuk skerap or cecair.

Those never been Betong. 3D2N is enough to visit interesting places such as, Betong Hot Spring, terowong komunis, Flower Winter Resort, Wat, tallest post box in world and enjoy thai foods.

For muslim, no worries there are alot muslim stalls and restaurant around. Even before you reach Betong town, you will passing Masjid Biru and got a few kedai makan Islam.

Masjid Biru

On last Friday, I took opportunity sembahyang Jumaat in Masjid Biru.. emm menarik, khutbah baca dalam bahasa melayu. At least I know what happening in Muslim community @Betong.

For muslim who are thinking to take part in the event, post-race meals are also halal - Confirm! Because while having our lunch at Hantana Restaurant, I asked the owner to translate the banner from my camera and she said she will prepare 500 packing of nasi for the event.

..and lastly buying car insurance is optional then entering via Betong. Just show the border-pass or passport and be extra careful when driving around Betong.

See ya!

New shoes - Brooks Cascadia 5

Bought another running shoes - Brooks Cascadia5. Recommend by saudara Rozmi Yunus. Actually he recommend new model of Cascadia6 but I prefer Cascadia5 because of color. Another reason is Cascadia5 received a lot of positive comments from the net prior to Cascadia4 which won "Editor's Choice" award from Runners' World magazine

Almost a month I could not do test run because of busy weekend.. raya, raining, racing, tight working schedule. So just walk with it to office. It is fine pair of shoes for daily routine. Comfortable. But quite slippery when walking on tiles. Other surface like road, carpet, grass problem. Sedap pakai.

Last saturday, I did a test run on trail route. 10% pavement road and 90% jalan tanah merah. Pusing Bukit Air Nasi near to my house. Exactly behind AIMST university. Base on my motocycle odometer, total distance is 13km. The route passing kampung houses, ladang kelapa sawit and bukit2.

Bukit Air Nasi, covered by morning mist... nice weather that day.

Between 1~10km of running, I having no difficulty. Legs ok. Still mau lari lagi. Feet still comfortable. Stamina... fine. So far no need to walk. But somewhere after 11km, both my feet rasa macam mau develop blisters. My feet request a little bit of room. Mungkin pasai stokin?

I would like to do more test.. but I running-out of trail track - Sudah sampai rumah. Teh-O limau suam dok tunggu.

Belek kaki...emmm belom ada blister. Think, i need to test more distance on this shoes. Maybe >20k... after Penang Bridge Run.

Quote of the Day

There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul.

- Kristin Armstrong, Mile Markers blog at Runner's
