A Ten Hour Workout

Hello Mr azhar (the only person that read my blog)

I did not train much during the weekdays. Just a bit on Saturday too.
Sunday (26 Nov) was the only day available.

202.78km with 9 hrs 15 mins on the meter (including stops it was 10 hrs).
Followed by a 22 min run.

Drove to Hospital Orang Asli. Edwin Ng's group (all going to take part at Langkawi) was there and some others. Edwin thought I was joking when I told them I was heading to Frasers.

We started together, exchanging ideas what to do at Langkawi. At Genting Sempah I told those who had arrived earlier I was proceeding to Frasers (some surprised looks).
Cruised down to Bentong, didn't stop and headed to Frasers through the back way. Just before the Fraser climb, I went to a small Chinese town called TRAS to fill up the water bottle. Eat one power bar already 3 hrs 35 min.
Only reached the rest house after 5 hrs on the meter, about 105km.

The beautiful rest house only sells mee or nasi goreng, no 100 plus even. ALL other shops now closed as its now new two way traffic to Frasers Hill.

The ride back (only one hill) took 4hr 15 mins. The climb from Bentong took 1 hr 42 mins versus 1 hr 32 min normally. I only fill up water bottle at Bentong. It was gel and raisins all the way. The GU Expresso, was really good but cost RM8 each.

There was no sun at wall. Beautiful roads , trees, no cars, simply a beautiful ride.
Started at 8 am and back at the car at 6 pm. Then a 22 min run (scared to leave the bicycle in the car).

I'm very happy I made it without any problems or feeling bad. I hope I can still finish last again at Langkawi.
