My last run for 2011-Malakoff 7KM &12KM 2011

Finally after series of runs we had since after raya, almost every weekends, Malakoff was the last one for 2011..somehow I feel that I have lost my momentum..I stopped going to the gym at all now.

It's like my obsession towards running is finally over.

The week before, my sister was admitted to the hospital, she has prolapse disc (disc dekat her tulang belakang) and it got worse last week, she couldn't move her leg and in excruciating pain, according to the doctor, the disc yang rosak tu poked her nerves..she couldnt walk and kena baring je all the time..nerves tu made her kaki in pain...she just had a baby 2 months ago, and years back she fell down kena snatched so I guess it had something to with that la kot?
She had to go for surgery to remove the small part of that particular disc, the one disturbing her nerves..we were quite scared to let he to do it, but I talked to the doctor and seek his opinion..and finally she went for surgey after few days in the hospital..Alhamdulillah everything went well..she can walk few hours after the surgery..

So, while my sister was in the hospital..I was't in the mood for exercise at all..keep going back and forth from my house to Sime Darby medical centre..took turn with her husband and my mom to be in the hospital with her...I thought of not running for Malakoff run, luckily after looking at how fine she was after the surgery, I decided to run..

This time of the worst run ever..even Penang Run was better, I felt like vomitting after running for 1KM so I had to walk..and record breaking that I actually choose to walk most of the time..I only speed when I came down the hill..I ended up finishing 7KM in 58 minutes..I dont remember this bad when I did my Malakoff run last year...I guess, it's time for me to retire from running.
To make it worse..I actually took part in 7KM not even 12KM. However hubby did his 12KM but injured his knee quite badly and now he had to rest for a while.

Both of us ended our 2011 run badly:( I dont know how hubby plan to do with his 25Km this coming new year, Newton run 2012..most probably he wont be running looking at his injury this time..luckily I didnt sign up..

MPSJ run

This time..after 2 weeks break and patah semangat..I need to depend on the power gel...I didnt train at fact I told my husband to wait for me at the finishing line when it closed to 2 hours.
BTW, I just discovered, Chocolate flavor under GU brand and it is so yummy!! you can find it at GNC. It's a bit too sweet but taste like a real chocolate so I had no problem to finish it..but you need to drink with water to wash off the sweet taste in ur throat.
It helps,...I finished the run in 1 hr 21, better than my Penang Run, thanks to my Chocolate Outrage gel ..hubby finished his in 55 mins.

my saviour guys should helps to sustain the energy

My next run..Malakoff..I plan to cut down on numbers of RUNs and very selective next year..this year a bit crazy as we run in all races that comes our way..too much I must say.

until then..take care peeps!

Penang Bridge Run

The view from the balcony at Equatorial Penang

The girls are having good time at the pool @Equatorial

Our finisher medals

When we finally finalized all the Run registration and hotels..we got to know our girls' school concert falls on the same day as our travelling date to Penang for our Penang Bridge International Marathon 2011, on top of that, my office team-building was also scheduled on that saturday 19th November...365 days a year..suddenly on that fateful day...everything nak kena buat same date...*sigh*

Office matters...I had to slow talk to my boss on the condition, and managed to escape..Alhamdulillah.

So we had to plan the trip carefully..called the Penang Bridge Run's organizer, we will be really late to pick up the race pack..(we registered late so the mail delivery service for race pack was no longer available)..called the hotel on our late check-in. All nearby hotel especially Eastin was the only nearby hotel available was Equatorial..thank god it's part of the event's hotel so they provided shuttle bus.

Btw..I love the hotel..we stayed at the new wing..and the view from the balcony was really breath-taking.

Rushed from Putrajaya (where the girls' concert was held) to Penang...reached there almost 7pm rushed to the Queensbay mall picked up the race pack. Me, being clumsy..didnt realize left my IC there, until the organizer called me after I came back to KL and posted it the next day..fuhhhhhh nasib baik betul..

Overall race...according to hubby who ran 21KM, easy breazy..not to me..eventhough it was windy and scenic (sunrise on the bridge was breath-taking)
I was sick, down with flu and cough after raya didnt get to train at all plus I was on antibiotic.
On that race day I was not quite fit to run, being me I pushed myself hard. I refused to run more than 1 hour 30...through-out the race I kept thinking "why do I torture myself...!" "I dont want to run anymore...this should be the last or at least finished what I have registered" At around 2Km after the race started, I felt like I want to stop running and turn back...but I pujuk myself..try 1 more KM...luckily it gets easier eventhough I was really burnt out:( was not a good run for me:( hubby also injured his toe..finished his 21km in 2 hours 20mins..while I did my 10km in 1 hour 26mins, thought I exceeded 1 hour 30, thank god!!!

Unfortunately, unlike other races, hubby missed my finishing as he fell asleep in the car waiting. We checked-out at noon and headed to Hard Rock hotel where the kids were so excited..since Monday was their school's day off, we extended our stay 1 day to be at Batu Feringgi.

Until the next update..take care peeps!
