TMBT 2018 - 50km category

Image
We signed up the race early this year in February, hoping to be fully prepared for it when the time comes. But a month later Fiza was hospitalized with the back problem and then she was busy with her classes & a new career. I also was buried with tons of workload, I always came home late and had to do my office works at home. It left us with almost no training. We only started training a month before the race with 3 times running a week for about 8-15km mileage without trail running. Yes, we didn't do any trail running at all this year. TMBT is well known as the most grueling trail course comparing to any other trail events in Malaysia. There are many people DNF even for 50km and 30km category and we regret we signed up 50km, we think we will be DNFed. To make it worse I left my 20 packets of power gel given by Laif at home. Then Fiza's water bladder was leaking. And I brought the wrong shoes for the race. All recipes for disaster. We wished we had signed up 30km.... ohhh…

Fiza took part in relay team for swimming leg. However, it was an unfortunate event when we lost 2 triathletes including one of our dear friends Cupido Kelvin who drowned during the race. RIP.

Family Trip to Melaka on motorcycles

Image
One day we decided to go ride to Melaka together with Auni & Harraz as pillions. It was a spontaneous decision. It seems they enjoy the ride and a little bit of heat actually...haha. In Melaka we checked-in to a budget apartment belong to Fiza's friend. At night we strolled along Jonker Street and Kampung Morten. The next day, we went to several museums and historical landmarks around Bandar Hilir. Later that day, my in-laws joined us and we went for more jalan-jalan & makan-makan. A great small weekend gateway. Should try to do it more often. 



Kapas Marang 2018 and Jalan2 in Terengganu

This year I didn't take part because as usual, I don't want to get bitten by sea lice again like last year. I also need to take care of Fiza because she insisted to participate despite her back problem. So, I borrow an inflatable canoe from OP Dr Syed Dollah to accompany her in the sea in case anything wrong happens. Luckily, there was nothing bad happened. Fiza managed to complete her swim within the cut off time. 







After the event, we went jalan-jalan around Kuala Terengganu. We sleep over in a relative's house for one night before heading back to Kuala Lumpur the next day.

SCKLM

This year I was decided to run a full marathon, probably the one and only marathon this year...


Probably I will race in SCKLM again and make it my annual event many more years to come

Bicycle Ride Sg. Koyan - Cameron Highland

Image
After one of the running session at Seri Hartamas with Harum's group, we were lepaking, enjoying roti canai & teh tarik while discussing about organizing a ride trip on bicycle to somewhere. Then Fiza & me mentioned about how nice the route Sg. Koyan - Ringlet on motorbike. Suddenly, they kinda agreed to do this route which I think it will be quite challenging because the last 40km near to Ringlet, it will be uphill all the way. But since many of them are avid cyclists if not Ironman, they said sap sap sui la... I think it means kacang jer ni.
Fiza & me went to Sg Koyan on motorcycle, before that we stopped at Janda Baik to eat durian kampung at OP Doc Shah's orchard and follow with lunch. Then we waited for the rest of the group at pekan Bentong. Radzy helped transport Fiza's bicycle while I'm volunteering to drive a support car... am I clever or what? Actually, my butts still swollen from Audax 200km ride 2 weeks before. I don't think I can sit on se…

AUDAX 200

It was the first time I rode the longest distance in a day just slightly more than 200km. We started from Kapar early in the morning towards Kuala Selangor, passing by Sekinchan then turned right at Sungai Besar heading to Felda Soeharto for lunch break. After 30 minutes break, we continue cycling to Bestari Jaya and then back to the start line after 12 hours of cycling. I consider it quite an achievement with sore butts after the event. Btw, on the way back Fiza was so tired while riding, she hits the divider. Luckily the damage wasn't so bad. A reminder to have a good rest before continuing the journey.
