Downtime

I'm feeling a little under the weather today. I have the makings of a major flu, cough and fever coming on. I can feel it in my bones. I hate the feeling but then again, who likes feeling sick.

This is definitely going to put my running in the back seat for a bit which I'm not too happy about. The Energizer Night Race is in about three weeks time and I really do wanna squeeze in as much miles as possible before the event.

I haven't run a competitive 21K in years and though I've been running 21K's during my training runs, it's never the same during a real race. This bout of coming sickness is really going to throw a spanner in my training sessions. Oh well, I just have to cope with it and make up for the loss time once I'm healed.

And Energizer, if you're by any chance reading this, I ain't in a million years going to attach that darned headlight on my head and run!

NTV7 Feel Good Run

I signed up for only my second run this year. NTV7 is organizing a run, their very first run event, mind you and I signed up for it this morning. It's only a 7K run but a run is still a run and besides, seeing as how it's being hosted by NTV7, I'm sure it'll be a carnival like atmosphere, at least I hope it will be :D


The registration is a little on the high side at RM25 though still not as expensive as some of the other runs. I only wished they had a longer distance run or at least a 10K but then, like I said earlier, a run is still a run :D I heard it's only limited to 5000 participants so if you're interested you'd better hurry along and sign up. The run is slated to kick off on the 3rd of July.

Here are the registration details:

1) Feel Good Run – 7 km, aged 13 and above
2) Run with Celebrities – 3 km, aged 13 and above
3) Costume Fun Run – 3 km, aged 13 and above
4) Kids Run – 700 m, aged 12 and below

Registration is open from 19th March and closes on 19th June and can be done online at www.ntv7.com.my/feelgoodrun. Manual registrations can be done at the following:

Adidas King Of The Road 2011

Congrats to all those who ran the Bareno run today. I heard it was a pretty tough hilly challenge. But I'm not surprised, that area itself is littered with some killer hills. I wanted to take part but decided not to cos I'm still only just recovering from my shin splints and do not want to injure myself further. I'm saving my legs for the Energizer Night Race next month. I've been looking forward to that for quite a while. It'll be fun running on the Sepang race track for the first time ever.

I've been going easy with my runs the past week. I'm really afraid to get a recurrence of my shin splint injury that had me sit out of running for 9 days a few weeks back. Though I still have the occasional pain in my shin these days but at least it's not excruciating.

Today is going to be a nice laid back rest day for me. My running resumes tomorrow. Oh, I heard the 'Adidas King Of The Road' is back this year. Once I get more details on registration and stuff, I'll be sure to post it over here. Rumour has it that it's on October 23rd and the venue is Sunway Pyramid. The running vests looks pretty cool, at least the guys one does anyway :D

Guess which one belongs to the men :P
