Working day. 45 mins on the trainer in the morning. Then 49 mins lunch time swim at PADE. They have sorted out the plumbing for now.
Sunday - a funny sort of day.
My motivation for Langkawi is not as strong as for Busselton. Whilst for Busselton, I had no problem training on my own, but Langkawi is a different kettle of fish. I seem to need company to train with. I didn't know what the others were doing but I turned up at Batu 18 at 7.30 am. Many swank cyclists' cars there, a group had left. I was thinking of excuses to tell the wife why I was not cycling (how pathetic I am) but then saw OP IM Shazly. He said the LeTuangers had left 30 mins ago doing the Broga loop. That was enough motivation for me, "I gave chase".
I didn't catch them. They were not at Lenggeng or at Petronas KK. They were not even at the car park by the time I got back. It don't matter, I got my ride in.
137 km. 6hrs 22 min cycling time. 21.9km/hr average. I only stopped for 10 mins at Petronas Kuala Kelawang. I left Batu 18 around 7.38 am and got back at 2.11 pm. No sun, so I didn't faint this time. Wonder what I will do tmw?
Monday - Happy Chinese New Year
HOA to Genting Sempah and back. 30 km thats all I had energy for.
There was Adzim and his friend, Faisal both doing Ironman Langkawi. A couple. Three LeTuangers going to do the Bentong, Gap, Ulu Yam loop I think.
Tuesday - 20 km run Lake Gardens to Hartamas Petronas
The car park was quite empty. The runners that I saw on the road were: Goh Chin Aun and a white lady, Bee Lian and a guy, Wendy Wong running with the top Moroccan (I think), Sam Pritchard and a slim Mun and Kona Carmen, a chinese lady that I drafted until she turned left at the double hill, two other guys ---thats all. So I got the whole road to myself Ha Ha.
- 1 hr 7 mins to Petronas (includes giving directions to a motorist - I hate it when motorists ask for directions.. they think we have nothing to do).
- 4 mins stop at Petronas. That small "Cool Rhino" water costs RM2.80!
- 1 hr 7 min back.
Total 2 hr 18 min. Actually thats a "total" PB. Ha Ha. Previous PB
Wednesday - rest
Thursday - 45 mins trainer
Friday - 41 mins trainer (evening was open house at Joo Ngan's house)
