One Long Run A Month

This post is about celebrating our effort (hubby and mine) in trying to achieve one long run (50K and above) a month. Gotta celebrate and be proud of ourselves lah... If we are not proud of us, who else will? Right? Hihihi
 
We don't aim to finish fast. We just aim to go a bit far. Just to test ourselves.
 
So here's to that awesome long runs done so far and am sure looking forward to more in future. :-)
 
JANUARY
We did a 10-hours session, just the two of us on the second week of January, covering part of the Putrajaya 100 route. Didn't know the actual distance as I didn't wear my watch (because it died on me already) and Hubby's endomondo stopped reading after we reached 21K and we only realised it after we reached Taman Rimba Alam. Huhuhu. Anyways...
Watergate 16-hours. January 1- 11th, 2015.
He did 60K.
She did 80K.
^^
 
FEBRUARY
I was invited to join the Patriot 200 which was under the Saltfish Series, 200K within 48 hours that was held from February 13 - 15th, 2015.
 
While we didn't officially join as we had other commitments on Saturday, we attempted the same route as the other participants on Friday night and on Sunday and the organiser was generous enough to share their rations with us.
 
Thank you Team PACat!
 
We managed to do a 40K on Friday night, then 21K on Saturday night and finished off with another 20K on Sunday. A mere 80K done during that weekend in total but we were happy with what we did.
 
MARCH
I did Gunung Nuang Ultra on March 1st, 2015. A solo run this time while hubby waited and supported me at the event.
 
I was very conservative and pretty much just walked the whole 50K and of course, being a slow poke, it took me 12 hours to complete my 50K minimum. Hahaha
 
A good run(walk) nevertheless and while there were hard moments, I enjoyed this a lot. :-)
 
APRIL
 
We DNS an event due to an unforeseen circumstances in the early month of April and we just decided to do our own session for April and chose the long Labour Day/Wesak weekend for it.
A 50K couple run along Putrajaya, covering the Core Island, Pullman, Presint 16 and 17. We started on Friday, April 30th at 10.30pm and finished the next day at 10.00am.
 
No medal. No glory. Complete satisfaction.
 
MAY
A week plus after of Labour Day session; on May 10th, we joined the Route 68 Challenge, and we did 50K together, Hubby and I.
 
JUNE 
June was an anticipated month for me. I joined Back 2 Endurance in June. Hubby decided to support and crew for me for this one instead.
 
With his assistance, I managed to get 71.3K that day on June 14th, 2015. ^^
 
Thank you Hubby. *muaks*

A few shorter distance runs and races and this, I think we did pretty good for our first half of the year. The most important thing is we both enjoyed the time spent together.
 
Looking forward to the 2nd half of 2015!

p.s. I'll write about food in the next post. Promise! HEHEHE
