A 3-Day Weekend Ahead

TGIF! Wooohoooo!

And double woohooo because it's Hari Raya Aidil Adha (a.k.a. Hari Raya Haji) on Sunday and we get Monday off!

Of course, we are excited to celebrate the Hari Raya Haji and we'll most likely spend it over at my father-in-law's house instead of going back to my hometown. My siblings are planning to go to Cameron Highlands after the qurban and Zaini isn't keen going back there and spent the weekend in an empty house.

Other than the Sunday, we don't have anything planned out for the weekend but I've already lined up my "training" schedule and passed it over to Zaini. Funny how I changed the terms of my workout from jogging to running to training now. Am I being a tad pretentious?
Saturday would see me (and Zaini on his foldie) at Presint 3 Putrajaya. I'm hoping to do a minimum of 13K tomorrow (and move on to 15K next Sunday).

For Sunday; on the Raya morning, I plan to do just 5-6K slow run before we set off to my FIL's home. Anyway, you know I managed to do a 12K run on Raya Puasa morning?

And Monday, I'm hoping to do a tempo run to prepare myself for the upcoming 7.7K IOI Community Run.

Let's hope the weather co-operates with my plan! Not to mention other runners' plan too! LOL

p.s. funny how everything I plan and think now would inevitably lead me to me and my running shoes.

SELAMAT HARY RAYA AIDILADHA.

p.s. I did my 13K run today, as planned. Very happy that despite the rain, Zaini still drove me over to Putrajaya at 6.00am and rain decided to stop by 6.30am. Great weather this morning! And equally great that Zaini accompanied me (riding on his foldie) all through the run.

  12. @SK,
    So syiok ah, no need to care whether got long weekend, holiday or whatever now. ;p

    Going to Cameron Highlands with the rest of the clan? Don't really relish the idea of braving the jam going up there. Sure jam during the long holiday, right?

    I'm hoping to do a nice long run. We'll see how I do though! ;)

    BTW, I told Zaini about my intention to enter two race in January because the second one is near to our home. He told me to just run to UPM as a warm up! You two are the same lah! LOL

  13. LOL! You really caught the running bug big time. It's good that he accompanied you for the run. I was too lazy to even wake up ... hahaha!

    Good on you for completing the planned 13K.

    Here's wishing you and your family a lovely Hari Raya Aidil Adha.

  14. @Nick,
    Nice cool morning, what with the early morning run. ;)

    I think Zaini feels he need to accompany me now. If left alone, I tend to have too many distractions while running - I wonder why? xD

    Anyway, I think I run better and faster when I know he's somewhere in front of me of behind me. :)

    Thanks for the wish. Have a great weekend!
