SCSM Training - 21/10/09 (KLCC Park)

In my haste to catch up, I went running again this evening. I must remember to drive slow(er) next time, thanks to the better highway network nowadays. However, driving from Puchong into KL is no easy feat. Puchong area is notorious with its 4-lane motorway, and congestion is key. You can never drive beyond 60km/hour here. But I was determined to go running, walau apapun berlaku...

When I arrived at the park, it has just stopped raining, and the weather is perfect. The crowd is less, and offered less opportunity for pacing. Regardless, I was determined to do at least a 6k-er.

O by the way, KLCC Park should do a discount card to regulars, lah... I remember paying for parking burnt a hole in my pocket pre-SCKLM, as sekali masuk sure kena RM3 (and multiply lah berapa kali seminggu...). Oh well, when driven by commercialism ni, susahlah nak upgrade jadi first world country.

The first loop was quite horrible with sudden chest pain, from the mis-weightlifting at the gym in the morning. Tapi memang belasah saja lah... and thankfully the pain subsided after loop 2. The rest of the loops were monotonous, with its predictable hills and valleys.

Managed to do 9k run, and 1k+ walk. So, OK, I have made my peace for today. Boleh balik tido dengan senang hati.

my significant other is having the same woes, tapi if worse comes to worst he'll play the 'belasah je' card. I hope that works.
