A Week To Becoming A King (or Queen) Of Bukit Larut

Just a week more to the "King of Bukit Larut" 21K event and I as usual, haven't done much training.

It was just that hike that Zaini and I did together last week. Nothing this week until today. *asking for trouble*

We'll make our way to Taiping next Saturday very early in the morning. 

Probably after Subuh and spent a night in Taiping.

Collect our race kit, kepoh-kepoh and help out, if our assistance is needed.
 
Otherwise, just mooch around Taiping town and enjoy some nice cendol and rojak? Hihihi

Can't wait! Seems like the hubby has been whatsapping with some runners (you know who you are ^^) about makan plans when we get to Taiping. Hahaha

Apr 20th is a busy Sunday... All the best and hope everyone have fun running : King of Bukit Larut, Milo Breakfast Run, Be A Runner, I'm Free From Corruption Run, Jogathon Warisan...

Apr 27th will be another busy Sunday, race wise. The family will be running as a team in the Pisang Relay in Bukit Jalil. There'll also be Hospital Sg Long Fun Run, LOTS Run Uniten, Run For Peace, Run For Future and there's also AVEDA Walk For Water. 

Isn't it a good sign for us that we're spoilt for choice in terms of running events now? 

Anyway, today is the day of Ironman 70.3 in Putrajaya. Happening right at our own backyard, this international event sees 1,400 international and local athletes compete in Putrajaya. Swim 1.9K, Bike 90K and run 21.1K. An Ironman 70.3 refers to the total distance in miles and is also called a "half-Ironman". Yes, folks... there is a full version of this with of course, longer distance.

All the best Ironman! The kaki besi lads and ladies. :-)

Oh! In case anyone is wondering... there is also an Ultraman event. Not the Japanese Superhero but an event where athletes join by invitation only;  so only select athletes get to do this - where they swim 10K in the open ocean, 421K cross-country bike ride and then complete it with a 84K (a double marathon) run.

    1. I tend to suffer if the foot strike is heavy during the downhill but feels it easy on the knee if I just run with a total abandon. :P

      Thanks Neoh. Any race for you this / next week?

    2. My next race will be the Kuala Kangsar 15k, then I am thinking of joining the Ipoh Half Marathon in mid June. This is just to gauge my training progress and fix my racing pace before I get into round 2 of the 18 weeks Hansons Method for SCKLM.

      After that, still planning for Chiang Mai... tentatively a family trip too.
