阔别六年后的第一枚奖牌

这是我阔别体坛整整六年多的第一枚奖牌。六年,那六年,除了空手道,我几乎没有活跃在其他的运动比赛。中学时期,校内运动会就是我最期待的日子。当时其他女同学一听到运动会都会皱起眉头,想到每星期有一天要牺牲午觉到操场练习就会想尽办法‘逃课’。我却偏偏和她们相反,好享受整个运动会的过程。

有些友情,就是在比赛中建立的。尤记得当年为队友拔河赛打气,大喊One-Two-Push, One-Two-Push… 还有当队友参加1500米时,就在圈外陪着他们跑完最后的400米。

这一次IOI Community Run,5.5公里,就是那六年后第一次出赛。开始报名参加时并没抱着参赛的感觉,反而只是想借此机会鼓励身边一些朋友参与跑步。反正只是5.5km,大概可以吸引一些初跑着,就这样,成功为六人报名参加。
第一次参加路跑,感觉蛮好的,冲锋的时候总特别紧张,身边还有一位很贴近的竞争者,使尽全力,冲到终点去。费时00:30:05,排名第八,得了阔别六年后的第一枚奖牌。。。


While waiting for the lucky draw, my sifu took a photo for me and khin. What a wonderful time to catch up with my ex-colleagues, khin was my teammate and loon was(is) my sifu. Since he is not in the picture, let me describe how he looked like... my sifu is the eldest in the Men Open category, he has a pair of legs which specially designed for running but having an obstacle at his belly :P Though he always claims himself as leng chai, but i think 'leng lou' is more precise lo...

阿美巴:

都說妳有潛能,嘿嘿,不知要如何慶祝才好?要筵開數席吧? 嘛嘛檔啦,不用怕,最多是十多令吉!(或者找贊助商??嘿嘿)

其實比賽,若只是抱著比賽的目標而參賽,始終會感覺缺少什麼,妳排名第八,一定會鼓勵妳接下來的其他比賽。

好好享受跑步的樂趣,不論是單練、團練或比賽,誠心誠意歡迎妳重返體壇哦!

On Saturday, I went to shop for books in Petaling Street. It has been so long I don't come to Popular Book Store and Da Jiang Book Store. Stayed there and become a book worm for 2 hours. Then, walked to Chin Woo Stadium and swam. This was my first time there. The pool is so deep!!! It is quite old but well-maintained. After swimming, went for my favorite noodle :D and walked back to Popular Book Store and had another round of reading for few hours. At night, attended Ah May's wedding party with Ting Tong, Boon Keat, Chong Wah and Ai Ling.

On Sunday, I ran to UM campus. Along the way to college 9, I saw a wallet. Scared that someone would take it. So, just hold it and ran along. My pace was very slow. I didn't bring water. So, felt very thirsty after 10 km. Met up the owner of the wallet at night and returned it to her. My knee was still ok after 16.5 km run, so, I will be going to Singapore Marathon.

UM campus is quite nice for jogging. Safe and there are a lot of outdoor sport facilities over there. I always run from Section 17 --> Section 16 --> Jalan University --> UM campus. There is a hill at the back of UM campus. Sometime, you can see people train for cycling there as well. The distance for the biggest round is 5.5 km.

This Tuesday, I have to skip the track training because I am working in Shah Alam. I will do some weight training and swimming in the hotel. I will try to make it on Thursday. Hopefully, I can rush back. Try not to miss any track training, otherwise, it is quite difficult to catch up again.

How was the IOI run? I read frm pm1 website that something went wrong with the run. Ill-organized, is it?

blueameba 提到...

May be he meant the organiser was not professional enough especially how they worked at the finishing point.

There was only one person in charge at one lane per category to record the winners' timing and position.

See, how come his timing will at the 21th place? This is serious man, medals only up to 20th.

Congratulation to Blue Ameba. Kambateh!

Last saturday i manage to make 3 rounds in UM campus (16.5km). When come to the third round at the uphill part, My godness! my quaricep muscle shaking unusually when i try to speed up my pace. This is not good, it mean my muscle and stamina still can't perform well in long distance run. Was wondering how to get through the 42k... :-(

Btw, I can only aim for finish within 5hrs, sub-4 can't dream already...
