Races in May,June,July 2016

Perlis Marathon 2016

A race which offer highest cash payout in Malaysia history...
naturally all the elites are joining it...
both i and 10 joining 10km...

due to day before we join Gunung jerai run...
luckily both of us can recover in time...
the route is flat all the way...

and supposedly is a good way to do PB...
my condition is ok which i sustain the early race pace...
its become faded after 3km mark...

5km mark i was doing some 19mins...
which is just a so so performance...
i try very hard to push for the last few km...

managed to overtake 2 guys...
and initially was thinking chances to make it top 10 is out of reach...
yet to my real surprise i make it to this last spot...

well...very very thank god is what i can say...
hope this will spur me do better in future race...

Gunung Jerai Run

Very Long didnt run any race in gunung jerai...
this hill is famous of it long distance route while the gradient wasnt that steep...
10 has her maiden run over here...

all the strategy which told her,she fully utilized it...
and she managed to grab 1st spot...
i was actually in sight of 3rd spot which is fighting with a malay guy...

my strategy of maintaining the pace is quite well covered throughout whole race...
yet a feel of minor cramp over my leg muscle has slowed me down frm sprinting to finishing which is down hill...
and this malay tall guy take the advantage by passing me and got his rm300...

i knew that its not my day which next day i still need to race in perlis run...
so no choice but need to make sure recovery is my priority mission...

______________________________________________________________________________

Komtar Tower Run

A run which i joined few years in row...
yet podium wise still out of my reached...
just dont know why...

training wise we wasnt really have chance to climb any staircase since staying in terrace house...
hill slope here also scarce...
only having 1 chance of climb up Mengkuang Dam new staircase...

yet after that climb its was close up frm entering which still in construction...
as usual elites frm penang and kedah are coming...
first 1.5km on road they really sprint very fast till i think gap in btw is around 30 secs...
this has make it hard for me to close up to them when in staircase...

this time around i learn frm experience...
though feeling tough on both leg and breathing...
yet i keep pushing...

and managed to maintain top 10 which timing has improved frm previous year...
i cant ask more about it due to lack of training...
10 though slowed down yet was lucky to maintain in top 5...

Strait Quay Ultimate Rope Run

A run which need couple to run together with rope tied to each other...
its organised in my working area...
so i am very familiar with route along here...

trying to push 10 throughout the race though we were back from my ex-colleague wedding dinner in perak which alot of beer been drunk...
think almost 10 cups been inside my stomach...
thank god that i can recover in time and run in the morning...

time wasnt that good for 10 yet she has tried her best...
so its a bonus to both of us...


___________________________________________________________________________________

Chung Ling Chinese Cross Country Run

i joined it almost every year...
which this year i know that my condition wasnt that good...
a change of race strategy definitely a need to cover up this...

hence i was trying to follow a fast forward club veteran run most of time...
its actually help me while he keep on trying to pull away from me...
till to last 4km few runners are catching up both of us...

this is intense...
and the 2 runners who overtook me is same category with me as well...
no choice...in order to help my bm leopard team i try my very hard to follow them...

they actually gt some 10m apart frm me...
till the last 300m my sudden sprint has caught them a surprise...
1 of the cant react in time while another which i wasnt realized that he is chasing was just few steps behind me...

i knew i cant get better 2 of them...
yet my last 1 secs of burst release was cross over by this guy half a body over me...
well...lesson learnt after this...

10 gt her maiden women open champ...
this is very good new to her and her women team has got champ for first time as well...

Races after i back to Penang

January 2016

 i still in Genting...
Which my last race in KL is MPI Generali Run aka Multipurpose Run...
Run through most of the race with Casey...

Performance wasnt really bad...
yet alot of strong fler...
managed to get into top 10...

hardly recall whats exactly goes on through out the race...
but i can this is very popular race every year...
hence you really have to fight till ur last drop of sweat for the position...

February 2016

I started my new work in 15th Feb 2016...
life is getting tougher by changing this new environment...
i dunno whether this changes is worthwhile...

but i do sure i need to get some exposure and challenge out there...
races in Penang wasnt many...
thus i can really train on my own and focus on what i need to race...

yet its wasnt as easy of what i talk right now...
imagine i need wake up 6.30am...
rush through Jammed Penang Bridge 7.30am..
reach work place 8.30am...
5.30pm is time whr i really hope to rush back...
yet...
HOD is still in office...
#%%#!@&...
how to go back and reach home by 7pm o...???
basically i cant really reach at per time above...
sky getting dark...
time for training is reduced to around 30mins...
far lesser than my normal 40mins training time in genting treadmill...
so my training programme has become irregular...
Performance sure drop lo...
i really hope all these can get better soon...

then come a small race...
larian perpaduan...
though started well...

but finished in a wrong turn which cost me a place drop...
my penang runners have become better and stronger...
no easy meat to beat them nowaday...

most likely is my condition at this moment...
and they have improved as well...
MSSPP is a very synonym word during my schooling time.i got to represent my penang school council for few times of the national level cross country event which up till today few of the road running elite are the product from this programm...

April 2016 

No race for me in March...
What a boring month...
Now come April...

I must thanks Aunt Moey for being generously assist me in getting this race ticket...
After my birthdate and special proposed date with 10...
so these 2 women have really bring me auspicious lady luck...

The race is initially not in my list of participation...
too expensive...
by paying rm98...

u are getting those crap voucher...
sample of shampoo...
apart from an ultron shirt...

Races route wasnt really marked properly...
no signages,no arrow,no marshals,no street light....
basically u r running like a headless chicken...

God bless that we front packed runner didnt go into Holland road...
thanks to 2nd placing indian chick head identify and guess right the direction...

Then come another race which i missed quite few years...
if not mistaken more than 10 years i missed it...
Nibong Tebal Race...

They have lengthened the race distance...
making it more than 22km...
quite scare of the distance at first...

looking at my training programmed...
which hardly i hit 1hour training workout...
how am i really can perform in this race...

i really doubt my body condition...
i guess pre-race preparation is something that can overcome some 10% of my whole performance...
and it is true that it has really work out for me...

with lil bit of race experience in this half-marathon...
i started the race in quite a slow pace...
get myself to immerse into race pace...

maintain it over till around 18km...
there i come and keep increase my pace for last 3km...
it has really work and i keep pushing till finishing line...

though i wasnt really pulling far a way from 3rd runner but i have getting closer to the champs guy...
what a satisfaction after so long...
work pressure has all taken into my mind toll...

and now i can say getting more and more confident of myself coming back to normal condition...

Multipurpose run,Larian TTJ

Multipurpose Run... 

a run that become popular in these few years...
and i estimated its a well organised event...

but it turn out to be other ways...
not for those who run for podium...
a race organised by malaysia popular running club...

consider experience enough...
even thay are asking those so call potential winner to wear extra chip...
whats a well organised procedure imposed by organiser toward any unwanted cheating case like PBIM...

but whats matters the most is the race itself was totally not i want to see...
as a runner you should know whats the basic requirement to fulfill in a race...
and yet u still fail into it...

from the start along the road there were not enough marshall through out the whole road...
well this i can forgive...
but not the road signage which matter the MOST!

u should know that those front runner can easily getting lost especially whn go into double hill area...
theres alot of junction which people can mistakenly run into...
sorry ya...i wasnt a frequent runner in that area so imagine that i can run wrongly when in hilly area for few times...

my front runner was penang fast veteran Khir saller...
he himself will definately agree on what i said...
even himself turn back to yell at me regarding which way to run into...

u can see how terrible it is...
and i was imagine those who behind me and cant see me definately will go into wrong way...
all these were not enough with the final part which when we 12km runner suppose to turn left into finishing line was asked to go straight...

which make me even frust! i was thinking how can it be so far...
thinking it was something wrong...
 i run across another check point which got marshall and ask them,they themself also know nothing(common sense) so i was like a mad dog run toward finish line...
well i can see i'm not alone...

so many elite there were running wrong route...
even i heart like venugopal was treated like hes a disqualified runner...
come on organiser... u r putting a grey image into our running world... u r not like those college or government organiser...
if u r them i will definately nothing to say... 

as for the below a TTJ run i can say they are definately better than u though organiser just a secondary school students...
i and 10 went for TTJ run in seremban last week...
they actually open the race till last minute saign up...

i think it was not enough quota required...
and they are very helpful to call me confirm to the bib no. taken during race day...
race start at 7.30am...
through out the race were enough marshals,road signage...

prize giving was very fast some 9.30am...
lucky draw was quick.. race finish in within some 10.30am...
well a quick n simple race...

i cant say much but a kudos to those newbie organisers...
i was 5th while 10 in 2nd behind a kenyan woman n beat another strong local lady...

Then going into another small running event,Thirsty Run in Pj...
May be coz of small runners joining...
i consider the organisers were doing well of their job...

along the race i am trying to catch up with a botak guy...
he seem very fast and i never see he race before...
after all i lost to him...

while 10 wasnt in good shape lost to her season enemy...haha...
we earn some tupperware bottle and container which is my mum favourite as well...

Salomon X Trail Run,Penang Bridge Run 2013

More than half a year i didnt update this blog d...
so i just simply wrap up my 2013 year end 2 races which i had joined...
races name as per above...

every time when joining salomon sure will meet up with affindi and his army runners...
there r very strong with all these cross country route...
i like about cross country route since secondary...

but eversince i started working i lost all my touch to this mother natural sense...
this race was held in maeps,mardi which i never been there...
consider quite a southern part of klang valley...

the race wasnt really that hard after all...
mostly is the red soil with up and down slope route...
my luck was out of top 5 and managed to get 6th which exactly same with 10...

Then went into Pg bridge run which initially mentioned by organisers that this year gonna be in new bridge...
but it went into smoke...
old bridge as usual still out of my luck as well...

i try very hard to train for this race...
manage to achieve my pb for half in this race...
yet i was 2 place out of top 15...

top 10 ad have 8 kenyan...haiz...
meanwhile 10 had achieved her pb in half and managed a 13th placing...
what an achievement for her!

this race was actually came out alot of news which published those runners cheated for the sake of its prizes...
all these need to be curb with proper race rules and control...

BSN Night Run,Adidas KOTR 2013

think it was my 1st half marathon of the year...
i wasnt that good at half actually...
to be excel in half u have to really put extra effort during training...

long training period is 1 of the factor u must fulfill...
which i seldom follow this rule...
also my training area wasnt really allow me to go for longer distance...

though another strong guy from my company,casey is doing really good in hes racing...
his determination is just extraordinary...
ok lets talk back about the bsn night run...

its also my 1st participation of this big race...
i would say that its organised better than scklm...
though the participants who joined i heart were around 12k compare to scklm around 36k...

the weather at that night was quite nice...
during half way theres some mild rainy drop...
i would say the route through out the whole journey was quite nice n balance...

my 20km was in a satisfaction condition whereas...
my last 1km+ was such a miserable run...
overtook by a lot of guys...

its such a weak point that i need to buck up...
yet i'm quite satisfied with my pb in my half...
i hope to improve it further in coming pg half...





lets go to Adidas KOTR which held to the next day of BSN...
i was running at 10km while 10 in her 2nd 10k outing...
for the 1st 5km i was in quite good position...

some 7th placing if not mistaken...
anyhow i know that to get into top5 wasnt that easy...
and during the u turn i can really saw myself in which position...

then i decided to stay back...
of which 10 to catch up with me...
she was strong enough to hold on her position...

i'm proud that she managed to landed her maiden kotr podium finished...
its a good learning stage for her for stronger challenge in future...

shape run is one of the race that i aim to do well...
since the prizes offered quite attractive...
yet this year just out of my reach...

even be4 the start i can already seen so many strong fler out there...
nvmd i just tried my best to push...

also saw few strong fler...

after 1st km...

then come the night we go makan at the restaurant...
and sleep in chau's mosquito house again...

around 3am + we wake up need to use lrt to masjid jamek...
and we reach they before 5am...
i would say the team who joined around 100+ gua...

then saw our competitor...
being 1st runner for 1st time wasnt really help much...
and i lost almost 2mins to the front team...wtf...

luckily 10 help to catch back...
anyhow the rest wasnt good enough to fight back...
and we lost to the 3rd team some 4mins...

anyhow we still satisfied with it...
would like to thanks everyone for our sacrifice n contribution...
