Fun-Filled Saturday

Who would've thought I'd wake up at 4.30am on a non-race day on a weekend to go out running? With the boys waking up without my prodding too! This must be my lucky day!
Jamie's eleven.

The reason we went out at such ungodly hours to go to Lake Garden : joining the GCAM 2013 - Team My in Training. Session #4.

Followed speedsters Jamie, Nick and the lovely PifflesInc doing two loops around the lake before the 7.00am session. Thank goodness they were doing a "tok kok" pace run otherwise I wouldn't have been able to follow them! huhuhu

At 7.05am, the group run started. We did a loop around the lake before tackling the deer park incline, pass the Bird Park then to the foot of planetarium hill and the mosque before heading back to the lake for another loop.
Hopping like a bunny. Hahaha
While waiting for Mommy, Raimie & Zaini did a loop around the lake too. Raimie needs to train because his mommy had registered him to run with her and daddy in the Pisang Relay in May and the 2.5km kids dash in Standard Chartered KL Marathon in June.
He was good enough to run with mommy who was at her final few metres before finishing too.
Piffles Inc aka Yvonne had nicely made a bunny tail for me so I was trying it out while wearing her very cute, handmade bunny ears. Did this in full view of some secondary school kids who passed by us while doing their cross-country run. Whatever lah this auntie is doing? Bwahaha
Met up with Karen afterwards, got a couple to Malaysia Women Marathon t-shirts from her and simply cannot resist a photo with her.

Karen is the race director of Malaysia Women Marathon. Met and talked to her earlier in my sweaty running gear. Went to shower at the nearby toilet before taking this photo. Must look nice and smell good la... right? Hahaha
Then, off we went to The Curve.

I forgot to bring my deodorant along, so had a stop at Watson's and used one of Rexona's spray-on deodorant tester. LOL

Picked up my race kit for the half-marathon I'll be doing next week at Brooks Half Marathon.
Then, makan!

The boys had a hotdog each and mommy had TWO! Hungry lah, after running that 13km earlier in the morning.

Did a bit of shopping - "accidentally" bought something at Adidas store. Ahahaha
and two hours later, had this for lunch. Nasi kunyit with chicken curry at Nyonya Colors.
Me and hubby in couple Malaysia Women Marathon tees.

Noticed my different hair style? Had a haircut too, today.

Posted some photos at FB, replied to comments on my blog (I'll comment on yours soon, I promise. You know who you are ^^) then pretty soon it was dinner time.

After dinner, went to Carrefour errr... AEON Big or whatever it is called now. Some shopping and got this too
It may not be Haagen-Dazs but still satisfying.

It's 11.00pm now and I am still not yet sleepy. Need to sleep soon. Need to wake up early tomorrow for a nice 16K run at target HM pace. 

Nite, peeps!

  8. Hmmm...nice kah the food at this kind of place. I usually find them good...but not the best e.g. chicken rice at the Chicken Rice Shop - would have to go to the authentic places for the real thing.

    1. Aiyah, I feel that if you want the best, definitely don't go to these frnachised type of places lah...

      Authentic taste for me means homecooked. ;)

    2. haha.... glad I am sane.

      You participate in the throwing of mandarin oranges on Chap Goh Meh too!? That's awesome.

      If I throw a mandarin orange into our Singapore River, I will be fined for 'littering'. Malaysia boleh.

      Have a fruitful Chap Goh Meh!

      Delete
    3. No lah. I don't. But I have some friends who do. ^^ Know some who did the catching too. ;)

      We don't simply throw them into any old river lah, ECL.

      There are events held for this. :)

      Happy Chap Goh Meh!

  10. Love the new hairstyle!
    and yes, ice-cream is a great way to wind down the hectic day you had from wee hours of the morning til late night. :)

    1. I wish I had Belgian choc ice cream though. But majority wins. :(

      Thanks!

      Will look for you to pose for a butt shot next Sunday. Where are you going to be again? On top of some inclines just as we runners ran out of steam at the final km? ;p

  11. These bunny photos should be enlarged and framed, and you and Zaini are a Very Nice Couple, but (of course) my favourite photo in this particular collection is mommy and Raimie running together. ^^

    PS: You do realize that one day soon he's probably going to leave you in the dust? He's growing up so fast.

    1. I don't like going without them.

      Anyway, as they follow me, they also will end up getting fresh air and do a bit of exercise while waiting. Otherwise, just lepak at home. Not healthy also. ;-)

  15. Oh I love that word "accidental" shopping cos I do that always and I told wifey it was unplanned shopping. Next time I will blame it to accidental.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I also have a lot of unintentional and unplanned purchases >.<

      Now Minah Rempinator taught me another noun for this kind of shopping, "accidental" :D

      Delete
    2. Soli, not noun but adjective.

      *later kena corrected by English teacher :p

      Delete
    3. Yvonne,
      I don't even know what is a noun and what is an adjective. :-D

      Delete
  16. Have exercise, have good food, have family activity, have "accidental" shopping and have a hair cut - a really fun filled Saturday.
