A Packed Long Weekend

So how's your weekend?

Great, I hope. :-)

Our weekend started on Saturday with a hike/run on a trail with a group of friends. It took us 9hours plus (with 2 rest stops to eat and a dip) and we got about 33-36K that day. We were lucky that it only rained (it really poured) at the last 2K of our return journey. Ain't easy to run in trail with wet, slippery trails.

The faster runners were spared the rain. I didn't but I do actually enjoy running in the rain and it was such a joy to run even after already putting 30K on my feet. ^^
We actually stopped to have a laksa before finishing our run since the rain was too heavy. Hahaha

Ate laksa then go running again until we reached our car and then lepak at another stall to enjoy some nice hot drinks and maggi goreng. 

Thank goodness we had a family dinner gathering after that so I didn't need to think about preparing anything for dinner. Only needed to show up to my FIL's house and MAKAN!
I just attacked the beef satay and beef rendang that night and ate only 1 piece of nasi impit. Burp. 

While I only managed to sleep for 4 hours before the Saturday run, I enjoyed a blissful 7 hours of sleep before going out for our Sunday excursion.
A trip to Gunung Nuang with another couple. Double date. We didn't plan it but check out the interesting colour combo. Hahaha

The trail was packed with runners/hikers and campers which made it quite "festive". Ditched the plan to hike up to the peak since we got there late, at 10.30am and only got up to Kem Lolo. If we were to do it and hike up to the peak, with its height of 1,493m; we'll probably only finish at night. Not an option, especially after already clocking up 35K of mileage the day before.

G5N was held on both Saturday and Sunday that weekend at Gunung Nuang, and an event of hardcore ultra runners running to summit Gunung Nuang 5 times (that's a total of 105km with total elevation gain of 8200m) so we got to meet and bumped into familiar faces; either running, pacing or helping at the support station. Congrats to the 5 finishers of G5N! And also those who toed the line to attempt this! You are HARDCORE!
What bliss to finish a hike on a hot sunny day and enjoy an ice cream!
and for dinner, a whole chicken for each of us. Ayam golek which we bought from a roadside stall along the road in Ulu Langat. Yummz.

Third day, after a good 6 hours sleep and it's Monday! A public holiday! Yeay!
Had breakfast at the mamak - roti canai for the boys and mommy had roti sardin, with teh tarik. So UNHEALTHY! LOL
We went for a walk, a bit late at around 10.40am but the breeze was nice albeit we were walking under a blazing sun.
Sun play!

Wear sunblock ya! LOL

Ended our walk at around 12.00pm, and the great thing about ending a walk/run at lunch time was that we could just enjoy a good lunch immediately after that.
Sinful lunch!!!

Hubby had fish roe curry while I had sambal prawn. Son in the meantime opted for a fried rice.

Three days of fun - enjoying the outdoors, with family and makan too!
Time to take care of the neglected house! ^^
