All three of us agreed that Raimie needs to "train" with Mommy in anticipation of any upcoming races that Mommy might have wanted to register for him. He is already registered for a 700m kids dash in June at Standard Chartered KL Marathon. The starting time of the kids dash should motivate Mommy into running a sub 2:30 timing for the half-marathon, to make sure that Mommy can be there when he start his run. Too idealistic? We'll just have to train for it and try! ^^
I procrastinate long enough to be too late to register him for a 5K fun run at Energizer Night Race. But we'll see what other races there will be for kids his age that don't need school participation in the future. Maybe run a 3K costumed fun run during NTV7 Feel Good Run? ＼(~o~)／
On Sunday we went to Taman Tasik Cempaka in Bangi for the "training". We thought we might as well travel there, get some fresh air, sweat a little bit and then head to a nearby Pasar Tani (farmer's market) and buy Nasi Ambeng.
Ready, Set, Go!
I used this park to calibrate my new Nike+ Sportband that I got as a replacement for my old, faulty one. I had been worried that it might not register the correct distance, but after comparing it against the distance markers here, I'm happy to note I got nothing to worry about. My Nike+ Sportband registered the correct distance after all.
Raimie and I ran side-by-side for 1K before we stopped. He was such a trooper. Next week, we'll try a bit farther, OK?
Then, to finish off I made another loop alone while Raimie rested with Daddy.
Overall, the park there is nice. Plenty of shades. Plenty of flat spaces (grass and concrete), nice pavements. There is even a futsal court there and a skate ramp. It is clean too. But general amenities are lacking. There are buildings where the toilets should be, but they were rundown and neglected. The only toilet I can find was near the PKNS building. 30sen an entry! @.@ But there is a shower facility there, if you need that.
Other options for toilets would be going to the PKNS building or McD.
As a reward for Raimie and motivate him to train again with Mommy next week, we went to McD. Two visits in a week! He got his doctor Spongebob on Friday and today he got dessert chef Spongebob.
After breakfast, we're off to Pasar Tani! Nope, weren't looking for fresh fish, fresh meat or veges but we were there for Nasi Ambeng.
Raimie whispered to his Dad about wanting a football jersey, a Harimau Muda jersey to be exact. But somehow, he chose this instead after browsing through some jerseys for sale at the Pasar Tani.
A 1K non-stop run, another Spongebob toy (plus another McD visit of course!) and a new set of clothes. Great Sunday for the boy, don't you agree? (゜o゜)
