Aihhh... Leceh siod

A lot of things have happened for the past 3 weeks. Cuma aku je takde masa nak blog them out. Tapikan, perlu ke blog semua benda? Hehe.

Firstly, the training plan is up, tapi after thorough re-consideration, I have to revise it, again. Maybe I'm aiming to high. After following the first week regime, terasa la amat sangat kepenatannya. I've missed few morning classes because I was too tired. Takleh la macam ni selalu.

I even had some left hip pain after one run. Tapi nothing serious kot. Because that particular time, I went to toilet immediately after running. Probably the muscle relaxed while I was sitting on a hard surface. Haha. No more pain the next day. Tapi bertambah malaslah aku nak run. Chit podah!

Great Eastern 30K went well last Sunday, for those running lah. I went there to take pictures, as usual. Ada la dekat 30 gambar aku amik. And only 1 had my face on it. Hahaha. Badi cameraman. But I had a great time. Ada jugak rasa menyesal tak join 20K run. Takpe, KLIM is in 8 weeks time.

Met a few people. I met Adrian Holman in person for the first time. Really nice guy, and very tall too. Saw Simon Cross for the second time, but still hadn't had the chance to talk to him because I couldn't abandon the photo spot, runners are still coming in and I can't afford to miss the photo opportunity (amanah orang beb). More importantly, the pipot primates finally met Harina in flesh and bones. Hehe. Actually I wouldn't use the word flesh and bones to describe her. Those words sound too, plain. And she's more than just plain.

Pictures? Go here: Bacin, Azwar, Faie, Intan, Jamil.

Note to Bacin: Beb, aku ada gambar close-up sorang awek. Ada tak dalam camera ngko? Send kat aku raw copy weih. Kasi besau-besau. Hihihi.

Pre-2007 Post-2006

My fiscal year for Ironman 2008 starts a week later than the 2007 New Year. What the heck lah. Re-starting classes after being away for 2 months is no easy task. There were a lot of reconfiguration needed to be done. Sleeping pattern, diet, co-ordinating training, classes and leisure, $$$. Mampuih la ini machiam.

2006 in review? Haih, it was a bad year lah, enough said. I didn't progress as an individual. Although there were no standards set at the beginning of the year, I don't need a set of targets to determine how the year went. It was bad. I felt it. The only thing I'm proud of in 2006 was that I made A LOT of new friends. You guys know who you are. :-)

2007? My gut feeling tells me it's going to be another flat-line year. Lepak ah. As long as I'm alive, I'd be grateful.

2007 resolutions in a picture:

Train to become an Ironman. Train to become a 'ward king'.

Simple je. Takyah nak complicated-complicated.

p.s: My batchmate, Chee Yoong, has improved his 10K time from 1:05 to 0:55 in 3 months. Cilaka betui. Aku jugak yang ketinggalan [ehem, diri sendiri yang malas training]. Wei buddy, update your blog lah. I want to learn your secrets.

p.p.s: I've spent a good few days in the basement, mapping out the Ironman 2008 plan. Will blog about it in a few days, and when I do, all annotations are welcomed.
