Not A Quiet Weekend This Saturday!

Saturday.

Putrajaya Night Marathon.

Gonna be fun.

An anniversary run of sorts.
The blue bibs were the one Zaini and I did in 2012.

The one with the yellow background are the ones for 2013. 19 October 2013. An upgrade in category too. Plus we plan to start and finish together this time. 

We did a trial run/walk last Sunday and while he was walking, I had to jog to keep pace. Who walks at his slowest, a 9min/km pace anyway? I jog at that pace!!! He said he needs me to push him when I'm running ahead of him and I will need him to ensure that when I do walk, I don't do it too slow. 

Give and take. Push and pull. Knowing each other strengths and weaknesses. What a partnership is all about. Good compromise not only for running buddies, but for a marriage too.

But despite all the excitement for this Saturday run, I am also very aware that I am seriously undertrained. With two months of no running (I tried to keep fit by walking and cycling) and the long runs I did prior to Oct 19th was the half-marathon at SCKLM 2013, a 19K two weeks ago and 21K last week which was mostly power-walking as we did it to strategise our race-plan. 

Let's hope I finish in one piece! I have absolute trust that hubby will finish his! :-)

    1. Doing things together does need both of us to put aside some of our selfishness and encourage the partner.

      I like to keep my to remind myself of the trainings and hardwork I did to achieve it. They have a story to tell. Each & every single one of them.

      Yes, I don't run to collect medals, but I sure as hell won't throw them too!
