Penang Bridge Marathon 2010

Obviously not enough time for me to recover from Powerman on the previous Sunday. My body just refused to increase the pace. To make it worse, I didn’t have enough sleep and proper carbo-loading as I took a bus from KL at 3:30pm on Saturday and arrived in Queensbay Mall 5 hours just before the race. Even the weather was not on our side, we were struck by tropical thunderstorm at the middle of the bridge. Imagine you have to run against the wind and I couldn’t look forward to see where am I going. Despite all these I crossed finish line in 5:38hrs. Not my PB though, I’m happy with the timing :)BibNameCountryOfficialNet3722m18679m21137m32988m37789mA00857KAM KASTURIEMALAYSIA05:39:1305:38:310:23:152:14:532:38:414:18:295:02:31Race started at 2:00am.

My first Powerman race (14th Nov 2010)

During my last Powerman two years in 2008, I was in Manjung to race but I was DNS (Did Not Start) after experienced very bad diarrhea only 5 hours before the race start at 7:30am. So, technically this my first Powerman, I was very happy to be able to complete it within cut off time and I got a medal together with finisher T-shirt.Run 11km: 1:01 hrs (T1 – 5 min)Bike 64km: 2:09 hrs (T2 – 5 min)Run 10km: 1:18 hrsTOTAL: 4:39 hrs (Cut-off 5 hrs)I haven’t ride my bike since Desaru and only focused on running has taken a toll on 3rd leg. My last 10km run took a lot longer when both my tights cramped up due to lack of bike training. Hope I would be able to recover before Penang Bridge Marathon this coming Sunday.Travelling with Kay & LaifThe weather was nice & hotWe stopped for lunch at Bidor Banana Leaf Curry HouseMy lucky number With fellow friendsTransition area So many participants this year.
