Welcoming the 30s

Honestly, I am psyching myself up for this NB30k this Sunday. It will be a pure lie if I say that it is not intimidating, because it is. What's not to? It is close enough, it's grappling next to a mere distance of a full marathon. We train/exercise lots and lots of runs for a full marathon, and yet I treat this 30k like a joke. 3 days to go, unfortunately, there is nothing much to do except DNS.
But I won't.
Got a map from PM1, and 30k route is nothing short of challenge. Although I have become more accustomed to the many snaky roads of Bukit Aman - Hartamas route, but there lies some mentally challenging turns, especially the Double Hills on the 20th km, and the proceeds from 27th km along Jalan Parlimen, pass the hypes at the Padang Merbok towards Bank Negara and Jalan Dato' Onn again etc.

Perhaps I'll dream the route these coming few nights and simulate it in my mind (*zing*).

There are many doubts and, err... concerns in many blogs about this 30k mini-marathon, and I surely echo the same tune. I think it will be easier to think of this as a LSD training with friends, and take the pressure off. Hopefully I could re-group with the GBS gang and pace togedergeder, and catch up on gossips (Dato Siti baru dapat a RM40,000 LV handbag - the effort to bermegah-megah di situ memang banyak point untuk dibualkan).

Just finish the race, just finish the race, just finish the race, just finish the race... zzzzzzzzzzzz

Now who wants a 40k LV handbag?

I carry a RM50 FOS bag to work. But because it has a big logo that says "I HEART MY BIKE". I tengok strap LV bag tu macam bike chain je. OK, gosip save for later.

Anyone carrying a hydration back pack ala Northface run?

Diket : ok bro, cerita sekali pasal a RM800K Mercedes birthday present for her last year hehehe. kene beli majalah mangga nih

Yim : I am scared to bring something beyond 100RM on me, takut kena ragut... the bigger the bait, the bigger the catch, ka?
amsyah said…
Kash : Go Green! anyway, am thinking of just to bring the hydration belt. Takut overkill pulak.

Tapi thinking about Malaysia's lack of water during races, I think I might bring my blowfish for a lot of Nuun-infused drink

uh uh, nak join gosip jugak. dapat bag lv pun nak masuk surattkabar. And I think she needs to loose some lbs, baju macam tak muat muat gitu....ok ok save some for sunday

Knowing PACM, water stations shoud be ok. Last year at every 5km. Unless it's OTAKGONE, then I'm worries.

Diket : betul ka? kalau cukup air for all runners memang chantekk!
Shaq said…

Boleh tahan jugak orang lelaki bergosip ye. CT pun jadi bahan.

Anyway good luck ye bro. Bailamosssss

*Tak lawa pun beg 40k tu.Tapi yg 800k tu memang cun habis
amsyah said…
hehe gerb, owner blog ni sikit lagi, masuk la ketegori junior veteren ahahah

gossip banyak membantu melupakan kaki yg terpaksa berlari berpuluh batu. boleh juga menajamkan minda dalam pengetahuan am, kan? :P

tapi yang benda alah rm800k tu memang le cun abis... I googled tadi (cari bahan eheheh), ada ke dlm interview Fuhh(??, Siti kata kat reporter bahawasanya beg Chanel dia untuk basahan saja? Saya sebagai golongan bawahan terasa sungguh hina hahah
