One more weekend coming before November ends.

Just did svm for the first 5th year in a roll i realised.

Svm timing
2010 16:20 mens 20 29
2011 15:29 men open
2012 13:23 men open
2013 13:21 mens 20 to 29
2014 13:12 mens 30 to 39

Meetup with quite a handful of people :) with TLC, and others. Thru the main organiser I found out that one friend whom i just met barely had a bad accident. Fell from 15m wall at onsight... omg luckily no head spinal injuries. Just jaw, right hand and leg hurt. Recovery will be long 1 year min.

Really need to be very careful as he was a frequent climber.

As for the heart, seems like she had gone colder after the gift to me. Is it over already? Cause i was hesitant? Well I really have no idea and just follow the flow and take it as stride.

Another problem coming home too when she even return for awhile. Seeing the fb messages are enuff to piss me off. But i kind of bochup attitude already as i just felt there are ao many things that i haven't do yet.

Penang marathon!

My 2nd overseas marathon! 6:46 timing... a little sad as i didn't perform well. When I reach the turn point it was 3hrs. I knew I was latè. But this time the knee was too painful esp my left.

Pressed on but is reallt far and boring. Only the sunrise was good enough for photo while run.

Solo for travel but luckily during the run i was with imd gang and was able to board bus due to them mainly. Else i think i will still be in penang.

Back home, weridly after my dnd she is kinda cold in the message reply.  Well hope everything is okay.

Agung... so many unhappy incidents but good learning lessons. 1st trek too slow overconfidence nearly cost my life! Wind was so strong that blown me rolling over! About 5m sliding. Glad i stop in time only lost the len cap and the focusing spolit. Not my life! Omg! Grateful! Secondly, i shouldn't hav chiong out in the end got lost and lost my 200 bucks sunglasses... well sad but it's ok. Even spend so much of calls. Bills will be insane! Glad i got in flight still so go home and have a bath and restart! :) 

Climbed Gunung Agung, 3,031m! Wasn't able to summit as the wind was simply too strong!
The wind even caused me to fall and stumble down for couple of seconds! So thankful that I was stopped by force of nature. Nevertheless, the experience was great to have! We started at 12am via the Besakih route.
Thou it led to summit it was a much tougher route than I expected.
We should had started at 11am to ensure more time. Plus being guideless most of the time,
it was a great experience to venture on but would not recommended to do so as I had hard time finding
route up and was lost in the village when I exited the mountain for 2 hours as I didn't take more details into the briefing email. Grateful that the mountain gave me the test first then the lesson thereafter to comprehend!

Brought mother to see doc at polyclinic but en route home after lunch, she couldn't control her bowel... omg... really thankful for the lady who pass me extra tissue. Plus we went on foot not on bus.
We continued to walk slowly and we made it. I really need to think and do something!
Just did my 32k run 3:35. Just couldn't meet the cut. But manage to run as much as I can.

Missing out...
Today felt double missing out. I didn't made it to Pulai climb as I missed the xfer on time... and I didn't go for the MR IMD run. Too tired from the drinking session.

I guess in life we have to gain and lose when we fail to keep up. Well I think is missing great chance to meet more people! adventurers!

TNF 50K!
Completed 50K trail! 8:26! Couldn't finished in sub 8 hour as i was so tired at the last 10k and was super walking speed.
Starting off at 7. Should be 6am or warlier so we can go finished earlier too. Started running from MR and reached rifle range at 7 i think i knew i was going too fast and started to throttle down but just couldn't be too slow. I even walk as much as i can so i don't exhaust myself too fast. Then 1st u turn at buona vista then up again for 20k mark.
Then go up to dairy farm and zheng hua park for 30k mark i think.  Then straight up to mandai reached at ard 4:20 duration. Came back down it get very tiring already. Reaching Zhenghua was so happy! Keep doing my tiger rub ritual to ease my knees. Poles wise not too used to using them on the run.
Coming back to BT then rifle range all my friends caught up and overtake me as i couldn't maintain my pace. Not training enuff!
Then into MR ast u turn point before last 6km out.... it was 3pm already and super empty glad that i completed it within given time!


Came back from Padang, Indonesia from the weekend mountain climb :)
About 14km distance up and down. Kerinci trek 3805m. Here are the lessons learnt and gain so valuable!
Day 1 traveling
If long haul winding driving journey need to have motion sickness meds which i ate.
Day 2 start trek
Rain like crazy. Need to have a summit suit not just dry socks.
Day 3 summit push
Should hav brought up the tripod then the wide angle lens
Need to buy new shells and plus another mini thin shell and thermal pants and shell pant to wear
Chances to hit night hike and rain somemore. Luckily the fall in the night hike out was just any normal fall. Sometimes we need to insist help say not negotiable! Last light at 7pm.
Night packing need to have more trash bag plastic bag zip lock
Thanks to giving me the less bumpy seats for the 7 hrs ride out.
Staying at the back indeed is very tough but i endured and glad A was safe and sound and completed together. 3rd lady i came to mountain with. This time I was rather quiet and decide not too aggressive i guess that's not what i would do usually.

In time...

Well back from India TMC and planned for my ultimate trip like to Iceland. But barely made any progress on it.

Finally going to do my stage 3 guitar performance! Well still far from 3pp but my left fingertips are ouching already. Skipped ST 15K run training as i should give guitar the priority. The ending couldn't do it properly still but just will perform amd complete the whole song! This a stretch since i yet to complete 1 song fully yet. 

Gave dad 500 bucks plus 30 dollars as his oldest brother was hospitalised. But he left before my dad could reach in time. He called home informed his passing. Well can sound the sadness but i also can't do anything.

He asked me for 500 bucks. Hope he knows what he should do with the money. I was like .... he took his bike to buy lottery then went to visit his brother... i was mmm... guess everyone got his or her own priority.  Need to get my ass and do the planning for my future! Else will sure regret!

Post DIY SICK...
National Day. Holiday. Sunny day!

After taking over the colleague software on Friday evening abruptly, the week is over. Didn't meet anyone or went for guitar class cause it's over pending performance which I'm still bad in. Especially the transition. Need to work on it the the coming 3 weeks. NOT MUCH time left!

After meeting with J, realized not that suitable I think. Well I thou so too. I guess who we really are can be interpreted from the things we paste at our work desk! 

Then went to do my own SICK training. 

Warm up. Swing arms and legs. It's seems like the best thing for runner to do. 
Then i warm up slow jog a round. 

Do static push up 30 crunches 30. Sprint 1 round at less 1:30sec. 
Static planks 120 sec. Russian twist. Sprint 1 round as slow as a cheetah lol ben swee always say. 

Static side plank each side 120 sec. Then 2 rounds 3:48sec. 
Static wall squad 2 min then 1 sprint

Static crunches with leg lift push up with one leg bend knee in when going down extend when coming up. Alternating. Then sprint one more rd i cui le 1:43 lol

And guess what I decided to skip 179 to take the train and saw my colleague who I took the software over with his gf. I was so wrong that he was single. I really need to be careful when I make judgement! I'm the one!

" Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now." - Goethe, Johann Wolfgang
