Two Taman Back In The Hometown

So I got itchy feet and needing to run a bit when we went back to my hometown for Raya.

I had packed a set (just ONE set) of running clothes but not really sure I'd be "rajin" enough to do any runs while I was in Raub but hubby was nice enough to accompany me not only for the short stop/run at two parks in my hometown, he accompanied me for a walk on the evening of the first day of Raya too. Up and down Bukit Ceria which is adjacent to the Taman where my parents' house is.
My sisters said it was far and I actually scoffed at them. It was just a 30min walk anyway. (Son whispered to me however not to judge his aunts badly as I walk 42K for fun. Love that boy. LOL)
First park : a very small park in front of Hospital Besar Raub. A loop here barely reach 400m. But hilly so can do 100m hill repeats here. LOL
 Running on the path between the lotus ponds.
Approaching the park's fitness area.

A slightly bigger park would be Taman Tasik Raub which is a few hundred meters away.
I ran around it and can confirm a full loop is about 800m. Perfect to do Yasso 800s. Miahaha
I started my run late at 9.00am and a staff there hollered at me that the sprinkler will be turned on soon. 
Gazing into the lake. Tired la. Hehehe

Hubby opined the next time we return to my hometown, I can just run from my Dad's house straight to the lake. Yeahhhhh... see lah if I rajin or not the next time we're back to my hometown. LOL

  9. Looks like Taman Tasik Raub is so much greener than Taman Tasik Taiping. Most of the kolam here sudah kering kontang. Kesian...

    2. Taiping one is HUGE!

      My hometown one is small only. They install sprinklers every 10m so trees and grasses all have ample water. :P
