Update on my 5km run for fun - SCB 2012.

Luckily I'd already prepared all the evening before, woke up late to leave the house at 5.15am..thank you to my friend who made sure I did..hehe..


Went to a friend's house for fajr prayer before the 3 of us left for Tugu Negara where it was supposed to start.


Around 6.30 in the morning.. the marathon runners.



We checked out the starting line before...


...we went to have our breakfast ~ roti canai with teh tarik/coffee..after all our starting time was at 8.45am.. hahaha..





Then we waited..but of course we passed the time posing here and there (nope..no DSLR) all by using handphones, and updated the status in Facebook accounts..hehe



3 of 12 from our Alumni..hehe





Almost time to start..and it was the TPM (Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia) who flagged us off.







Tracking my personal timing using the Apps in my handphone, I was happy to record walking/jogging time to the finished line :


Almost there, yeay....



Broke my own record ~ was surprised with the 8 minutes per km when during training it was normally 11 minutes per km!



Total distance for me from the starting to the finishing lines



Route map



I suppose that if I didn't stop along to way to capture some photos, I could have done better..hahaha...


Opposite Parliament Building


Reached this mark in 30 minutes :-)



@ Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, my tracking Apps had already reached the 5km then, needed to reach the finishing line at Dataran Merdeka.


Sultan Abdul Samad Building, opposite Dataran Merdeka...could see the finished line there, hehe....


But its ok with me..so glad that my friends and I managed to do it..and from the responses that we received from our Alumni members (which hasn't stop yet!), many more are looking forward to next year's!




Yes, glad that that we did it!

No kidding...?!!!!

Was one of the responses that I got from one of my friends when I posted this picture at my FB wall..hahaha...




Yes..went to collect my race pack today at plaza Dataran Merdeka (what a nice place underneath the D.M!)

So with that, I'm seriously going to the race on Sunday..though I haven't done any serious training lately.

But I definitely will try to beat my own estimated registered time (here)...as per another friend's comment..,

"I'm sure u will break your own record. *wink*wink*"



Haha..no, am not kidding mate!

Busybee : Home and Away

There wasn't any mystery really in my making the short break. 

Before the end of May I'd already decided to slow down on writing as we'd already entered the month of Rajaab, with months of Syaaban and Ramadhan coming soon.

Actually I was quite surprised that I was able to do daily entries for the past four months when I had first intended to test myself for only a month.....huh..quite a feat.....though I do admit that once in every few days it was quite difficult to come out with ideas....hehe..

Anyway.....after the 31st May entry, I was thinking of taking one or two days break but instead I lost the mood to write....,




Why?

At the office on morning of 1st June I got the call that mum wasn't feeling well. Really thankful that it was easy for me to request from my boss for immediate leave..and took the noon flight home.


The next few days were spent in my hometown with my mum and family., but on Monday I came back to KL, still worrying about mum and at the same time was not feeling well too.






But by now Alhamdulillah mum is much better than that Friday, and I am too (though the exercises for the coming run make my body ache..haha..)


******************

So no mystery or "forced to" reasons for not writing.......I was around but I was just tired   (i.e between then and now was not on holiday).......hehehe


But thank you all for the kind words.


So, have pleasant days ahead and till the next time then!

Have a great weekend all!
