Quote of the Day

It was being a runner that mattered, not how fast or how far I could run. The joy was in the act of running and in the journey, not in the destination. We have a better chance of seeing where we are when we stop trying to get somewhere else.

Report: 26th Malaysian Open Masters Athletics Championsips

By Aiman Cheah

Date: 2-3 J une2012
Venue: National Sports Council Stadium, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur

Time: about 10.00 a.m
Event: 5 000m Walk
Category M40 | Position: 1st | Time:37mins 38secs

First competitive walk after stroke. Gold medal? Yes… a complimentary medal. I was the only walker in my age group. My wife was a little worried but I convinced her that I was not going for the timing nor the positions. My target was just to complete the walk in 45 minutes.

I must thanked my family for their support. My son had walked with me thrice... 2.1km prior to the event. My daughter did once… Just a leisurely walk of about 25 minutes.

I swam for 30 minutes on Wednesday and 45 minutes on Thursday. It was a leisurely pace. I felt good and did not have problems. That was why I was confident to complete the walk. On Friday I walked 4.2km with my son.

Time: 4.00 p.m
Event: 5 000m
Category M40 | Position: 3rd | Time:27mins 33secs

Bronze medal for my first competitive run? Yes… like the day before it was also a complimentary medal.

Unlike the walk, I was not as confident as running is more competitive me.  I told my wife that I would give up if I was left too far behind after two laps. Mr Jesmail Singh wished me luck before the race and I told him the same...

I may stop if other runners were too fast. He made it a point that completing the race is far more important than competiting in the race. I certainly agree with him but then I was too slow, it would affect the programme for the following events.

I was lucky because I could keep pace with the second last runner. Completed the first 200m about 30m behind. The distance went to about 50m going into the second lap. I made up my mind not to abandon the race as I could cope with the pace. Let it be even if I finish close to two laps behind.

I guessed before I could complete the 1,000m I was already lapped by Cpl Shaharuddin, my student's 'sifu'. I think I avoided the last position with 6 laps to go.

Ekspedisi Menawan Gunung Kinabalu

I'm going to Kota Kinabalu again. This time, I will lead 4 office colleagues hiking up to Low's Peak. A 4D3N trip start from Thursday 21 June and return on 24 June Sunday.

Base on schedule, if weather kind enough and team members in good condition we should reach Laban Rata via Mesilau route on Friday evening. Continue to top of Mt.Kinabalu on Saturday morning - waiting for sunrise. And return to Timpohon Gate.

Preparation for this trip almost completed. Climbing permit from Taman Negara received, flight tickets, lodging in Mesilau and Kota Kinabalu paid. Except transportation. I still negotiate with 2~3 company for best rate for 3 days of rental. Should be finalize by this week.

Initially my team, aged between 32~56, working with the company more than 10 years, decide to give some token by flagged the company banner on top of Mt.Kinabalu. Luckily couple of weeks ago company and sport club agree to provide some cash in this Ekspedisi - Thanks.
