When The Sun Is Shining

brightly and relentlessly, one can't but wish for a cooler day and maybe a bit of rain. Not too much, else KL will have flash flooding! But enough to make the day cooler. Don't you agree?

Last Saturday's weather was nice. Grey overcast sky in the morning, perfect for me to do my last long run before the big day on June 24th (managed to do almost 21K, running alone in Putrajaya while Zaini patiently waited for me & snap lots of photos. Woot! Woot!).

    1. I'm having a bit of problem fitting time to do my runs too lately, that I have no choice but do it at 4.30am! Finish by 5.30am, shower wait for son to get ready for school, send to school and nap until it's time to head to office. huhuhu

  4. It's been blessedly cool in Fujiland, too, and not unbearably humid either. Maybe I'm just getting acclimatized? ;)

    I'm keeping 'em crossed that you'll have cool weather for the marathon.

    PS: When I think of what awaits us after our rainy season ... alamak! (+_+)

    1. You have been in Japan far too long. ;p

      What comes after rainy season? I thought it's autumn. No?

    2. August. Impossibly unbearably insufferably hot. No rain. Just hot and humid and 35+ degrees and damp and sticky and sweaty, and you have to wear formal clothes in this blessed land, and you have to travel in packed trains, and you have to accept that maybe we'll have power cuts. AAARGH! ~(>_<~)

    3. I forgot about that... and yet I've been to Japan in Aug - early Sep 2 years ago!

      Definitely not a good month to walk around Tokyo. @.@

      hang in there! Stay tough! Autumn is but a couple of months away... ^^

  6. I hope you carry a baton when you run alone. Even Putrajaya also have Mat Rempits cruising. They are like parasites everywhere. Just beware ok.

    1. The place I run is relatively rempit free. The only rempits I encountered were the cyclists and most of the serious ones are a pretty friendly bunch. ;)

  12. But nowadays it's HOT!

    Wake up - already sweating when walk the first step.
    Breakfast - feel hot and double hot from the hot coffee.
    Toilet trip - return and find both my feet are sweating.
    Lunch - don't even dare to go out, hide inside the office for biscuits and milo.
    Office ends - cannot avoid the heat, need to pick my girl from school.
    Reach home - smelling like dead fish.

    And the HOT case does not end when I reach home. It continues until I crawl onto my bed.

    1. Some more you put up Raimie pic above with umbrella and rain drops....I miss the rain so much, wuu wuu~

      Delete
    2. But raining in Japan now comes also with humidity. I'd feel sticky all over and my hair would frizz up. :(

      Delete
    3. BTW, I should mention this to Rurousha.

      That umbrella Raimie was holding - we picked it up in front of a konbini late one evening. It was either a discarded umbrella or someone forgot to took it back. We're too stingy to buy the colourful umbrellas in the background! ;p

    1. You tough man you. 5.30pm or 6.30pm, I still don't dare to go out because the sun is still so bright (plus no shady trees).

      Now, I resorted to 4.30am runs on weekdays and 6.00am long runs on weekends + the possibility of getting roasted by the 8.00am sun.

      You coming down for SCKLM?

      Delete
  16. yeah, so hot, i just came back from outside and i am sweat soaked wet!!
