Lost Mojo

I need to find my mojo.
I've lost it unfortunately in these last 3 weeks.
Betul cakap.
My Ramadhan running plans went down the drain.
First week went well, 2nd week I faced extreme fatigue and cut down on my mileage, 3rd week my runs deteriorated to 3 times a week, and 4th week?
Only once dengan alasan cuti awal nak balik beraya.

A week after raya and I'm still starting slow.  Yesterday's 3 miles run pun macam bercinta.
And to think my next race is 2-3 weeks away.
If this goes on, I'll just run at my easy pace taim Taiping Run nanti.
Huh, macam lama la pulak nak habis.

And I wonder where the 10K route will take me.
(Yes, all that drama for a 10K race) .
Taiping has changed a bit this month. Some roads are closed down and new detours are forming due to some recent construction. My 3 minute journey to the mall has extended to more than 10 minutes, 15 to 20 if you count getting lost.
Last year's 21K route was ok but they could improve more on road marshals and water stations. Tapi last year, only a handful of us were in the race. The girls pun tak sampai 20 orang in the half marathon category  and the women category in the full marathon had to be canceled because only 1 girl signed up for it.
This year I expect more runners participating due to the absence of Bidor Half Marathon and Taiping Heritage Run.
Katanya almost all major hotels here are fully booked on the 15-16th of September.
So I really hope the organizers improve on what needs to be improved.
If you're taking part in the FM or HM, try to bring your own water, you know, just in case.

But that is, like I said 2-3 weeks away. And like I said before, in the mean time :
Mari mencari semangat yang hilang ( suara sengau Mael XPDC in the background)

Mungkin perut berat sangat kot?
Mungkin cuti lama sangat kot?
Mungkin I've been refraining myself from the Internet for too long kot?
(Kurang motivasi dari dailymile orang lain kot?) mojoooooo.
Hang pi mana?
