Running With A Group
I did something that I've never done before and that's doing my LSD run with a group of people. All these while I do this alone or with Zaini cycling beside me. It's certainly a new experience and an eye-opening one at that.
I went with a group of runners that was introduce to me by fellow lady runners who ran the Engineer's Run for MAKNA last week, doing a Malakoff simulation run around the Malakoff race route that is going to be on next week. All I can say is, thank goodness I'm not running Malakoff. hahaha Hills? And doing it twice as the route has two loops? Blergh. Much respect to you guys who are doing this next week.
Got out from the house at 5.20am and waited for Nannoor who had kindly offered to pick me up, at Petronas Sation. Fairy and the rest of the gang was there and all set to go by 6.30am.
Not wanting to sound ungrateful or anything but I only wanted to do a 7:30pace for this week's LSD but I guess my pace was too slow for the rest of the gang. Actually, I was slower than doing a 7:30 pace as I walked quite a bit along the route too. The runners were quite nice to check on us but I guess me running slow worried them. Ahahaha
Maybe I wasn't cut-out to run in a group since I was the slowest of the bunch?
Though all in all, it was a fun experience and the route was nice, albeit littered with killer hills. The group member were nice to regroup at several pit-stops and waited for us slower ones to arrive and we had plenty of camwhoring session too!
Meet and greet session. heh heh
Going up, for the umpteenth time! On the plus side, it's shady.
Group photos at one of the pit-stops. As always, Lina can't resist looking stupid.
They are going to do another LSD the week after Malakoff. Do I want to join them, if they let me? I'd love too but I think my pace will be too slow for their comfort. Heeeeee......
