And it was just a mere almost 3K race. Tapi okla, because I managed to run a good steady pace despite having major stomach issues which made me almost want to squat and do some unthinkable stuff by the side of the road.
My 8:35 minute/mile pace ( which is considered good by my standards la- orang lain yang think ," Chih, lame" , sila sheddap) got me 2nd place, still unable to beat the same girl who beat me in a KKM run in Manjung 2 years ago. But then, 2 years ago she beat me by a minute. Yesterday, I was just 5 seconds away.
And she has a coach! ( she told me). Saya beg Coach pun tadek.
Seminggu tak payah bagi budak-budak makan
I also got a hamper and cash money. Because of my malas-ness to snap pictures, take out your wallet and fish out an RM 50 note. Ada iras-iras my prize money.
Cukup le bayor balik tol ngan duit minyok ke Ipoh, yeop.
Anyway, after the race, me, the hub and kids went for a major makan-makan fest. Ayam gojeng, nasik lemak, karipap, kuih lapis banana, keria, tea, milo ais, oh my.
Sambung balik dengan lunch at Taiping with Pakcik Ronel Mekdonel. Pastu dessert with the blocks of cheesecake hub got me from his recent trip.
Walaupun nampak lemau, these cheese layer cakes are DELICIOUS!!
Buat penat lari je daaa..
So that evening, while accompanying hubs completing his run at a nearby Rakan Muda complex, I coaxed the kids to complete a 1K run with me around the park's loop. The kids ran and ran but almost halfway, my little girl stopped , having a coughing fit. So yours truly gave her a piggyback ride dan jeng jeng jeng, dengan bijak bistarinya ran all the way with the extra 13kg on my back.
Then genius here decided to impress her children by climbing up the climbing wall at the complex. Konon terer la. Almost halfway up, I remembered suddenly of my fear of heights and almost had a panic attack figuring how to climb down. Turun punya turun, 1 meter from the bottom I lost my footing and had to jump all the way down.
Kedebuk, macam nangka da.
The next day, still delirious from my race, I decided to go for a 10K run. Even though my body was aching from the race + piggyback run + wall climbing gedebuk, I was still sengal for a run.
So I went running.
Until this morning. Wah , aching muscles all over.
Padan muko, sengal.
Sekian cerita saya untuk hari ni.
