Said my dad.
Yeah, ok. Rightttt (sarcastically, eyes rolled)
" I'm serious. These things could happen. Who knows," He said again, ironically while handing me a plastic of chocolates he bought from some airport from a recent trip.
Sure. ( more eye rolling)
Wanna know the biggest joke of the year?
Well, somehow I got selected to run for KKM Perak.
I'm in for two events.
1500m and 3000m.
And the big national level event in Sabah is only a month and a half away.
Nak sangat middle distance kan?
All I can say is : Hah. hamik ko.
I have no idea how to go on with this track running business.
Do I need spikes? Can I use my normal shoes?
Pace management? On track training?
" Physiologically, these middle distance events demand that athletes have good aerobic and anaerobic energy producing systems, and also that they have strong speed endurance."

Strong speed endurance?
What the hell, man?
Sure, the free airfare and a 5 day cuti tanpa rekod holiday in Sabah sounds wonderful ( I really need a break from work) but I hate the pressure of expectations that comes with it.
Boss aku siap bagi pantun tak sengaja:
Hang menang, balik naik kapaterbang,
Hang kalah, balik berenang.
I don't really have high hopes of getting a medal. But I do hope I don't get last.
So in short, I will train not to be last.
Sounds like a plan.
Adoi, kena activate balik Dailymile la nampaknya.
