Metro Run target

Almost 4days my right leg still hurts. Because of running over distance without proper mileage increase after long shutdown in bulan puasa. So regret betul.. i should not follow the SP runner doing marathon training.

Not that i don't like them, but doing 24km after a month shutdown is not wise planning. Running distance should increase in 10% rate to avoid injury or cramps. aduihh!! sakitnye jiwa raga ku.. Last Tuesday.. after 15mins warm-up.. try slow jog.. about 100m.. aduih! can not go la! walk around sport complex for 10mins then go back home.

This week got local run event (Metro Run), thought want to give my best try since i did in Larian Perbandaran. No distance mention in registeration form. Prize, medals, lucky draw also not mention. They waiting for sponsor contribution before announce the prize. Yesterday got pick-up bib# only, t'shirt not arrive yet. Should be, late evening baru sampai.. said Hospital Metro admin clerk.

My target to finish <15th in men open category, but for veteran category may be very competitive. As i see, in SP youth runners are less, most of runners i passby during training run were more than >40. For men open category open from age 26 to 37.. so ada peluang if my kaki in tiptop condition before Saturday.

Penang Relay,
After dicussion on Sunday long run.. Penang Relay was divided in 12 stages. Each team must provide 15 runners, 3 runners as reserved. The race start/finish at GeorgeTown. The route cover Jelutong - Bayan Lepas - Teluk Kumbar - Balik Pulau - sg Pinang - Batu Ferringgi. So the first time dicussion, we were free to choose which stage we want to run. I will run for stage 7 probably 6km, from Sg. Rusa to Sg. Pinang. Hopefully the route not too sunny and as i know Balik Pulau roads got lot of trees on both side. So ok lah if run on 9am - 11am. Second meeting and further diccussion, will held after Metro Run.
