5th Day Of Puasa

Woke up early today and didn't miss sahur. Well, technically it wasn't waking up because I can't sleep. Must be the adrenaline rush doing a late night run yesterday. That's why I favour early morning runs these days but beggars can't be choosers. And I run whenever I can this Ramadhan!

This marks Raimie's 4th day of puasa. He didn't fast the whole duration yesterday. No problem. At his age, him fasting is more to train him to do this "ibadah". Regardless, I am proud of him for trying.

During school days this Ramadhan month, I was able to wait for him to finish his religious class and do his Asar prayer before both of us go check out the Ramadhan stall nearby FIL's house; which is quite popular with people working at Mid Valley. The poor boy looks exhausted but he was game enough to endure it and usually he'd feel better after having a nice, cooling shower. ^^

For buka puasa today :
Nasi lemak ayam for Raimie
Nasi lemak with beef rendang for Daddy
Murtabak
and laksam for Mommy.

I am in panic mode now...
I have this team run event this Sunday and looking at what I have to go through (see photo below)... I am seriously hyperventilating about the tough route.
Photo credit : Pacemakers Anniversary Run 8 - 2012 (PAR8-2012) FB page.
So, tonight I did (or tried to) a fast loop around the carpark - 2.4K at 13min then ran (and walked & panted) up to 8th floor of my apartment block and finished off with an attempt to do a few 20sec strides. Must climb the stairs all the way up to 10th floor (total stairs : 180) tomorrow and tried to do a below 6min pace 3K run. Good luck me! I'll rest on Friday and Saturday in anticipation of Sunday run. 

By the way, want to know how most runners behave when they see a camera? See this video taken during the Men's Health and Shape Night Run. Sad though that I can't find me in the video. Another bunny was found but not this bunny! Bwahaha

      In 1995 I started appearing on TV everyday as doctor for MOH in Anti-Smoking Campaign! Those days I was still a heavy smoker! LOL
      Then appeared in Putrajaya Development as architect trying to lure foreign investors! Then appeared in several direct selling corporate videos include New Skin... I was hired because I looked like nerd.

    1. thambee thought anay never have problem running because used to chase letchumi around coconut trees for hours and hours, and at the same time singing bollywood's latest hits without even panting a bit!!

      Delete
    2. Run around the trees and climbing up stairs are 2 very different exercise.

      TM is so energetic to chase Letchumi around coconuts tree, that's the courting game. And once caught her in his arm, they'll proceed to 2nd game, ahem ahem ahem.

      Delete
    3. 22 floors??? Crazy ah? I die faster

      Delete
    4. Wakakakaka... Yvonne you cracked me up!
      Kuching - 22 floors is nothing for my wife! She ran up and down X 2 times. The training for Mt Kinabalu is no joke and tough otherwise better not climb... It is climbing and not hiking! Everyone should try lah!

      Delete
    5. Ini Anay Khan should be as fit also lah... wife can do 22 floors, I bet he can do double! Ever climb up KLCC tower or not? kekeke

      Seriously, 22 floors twice. Respect!!!!

      There is this one lady at MV gym, every morning will do the stairmasters like nobody's business. Can go at it for hours and while reading newspaper. The kaki kuat lah. Can do a lot of ahem ahem on top action no problem like that. kekeke

  7. Last year after that big quake most escalators in stations were stopped to save electricity. I usually travel on the Toei Oedo, the deepest Metro line in Tokyo. Oh man. That was a lot of stairs ...

    2. I feel for you, Ru!

      If I ever got stuck in the centre of the earth, or rather the shinkansen platform at Ueno Station... I'd need a paramedic before I even got halfway up! @.@

      I really admire you Japanese (I'm including you too, Ru) and all the steps you have to face in your daily commute. Kids, office workers and obachan alike.

      You know, the reason I used to go to the gym years ago, hired a personal trainer, lift weights and stuff was to make sure I was strong enough to tackle the stairs while giving Raimie a piggyback!

  18. actually I believe that puasa in Malaysia is very tough.. the long hours and hot weather..
    last time I had a friend and he is from Morocco and he had a hard time puasa in Malaysia.
    coz the weather and the long period.
    this is because normally in europe country ramadan is in during winter time so the daytime is less compare to night time
