Long Long Time No See 30km

Hahahah... This has been a very looooong time I did not have any 30km long distance practice. Last Sunday (12/11/2006) just completed the first 30km training for this coming Singapore Full Marathon.

Total Time: 3:26'46
Split Time:
10k - 1:11'38
15k - 1:44'07
20k - 2:12'41
25k - 2:48'12
30k - 3:26'46

I was pushed a little too hard at the last 10km, cause I was started a bit too slow at the beginning and very excited and wanted to finish in 3:30. Legs were so sore and pain the day after running, but now already mostly recovered.

Want to thank the Pacesetters' volunteers in the water stations, road marshalls and registration. Really appreciate their efforts, muak muak :-*


Recall last year this period, I just completed my 1st ever 30km in my life. Wow, time flies...

千斤重、千里路

最近又回到繁忙的吉隆坡都市上班,每一早总得塞车塞到一个小时以上才能抵达办公室。而每一晚就拖着疲累的身子回家,回到家后什么也不想做,只期望洗了澡后就倒头大睡。

体重又减轻几公斤,正如朋友所说的,我连一包灰都不足。

在顾客的公司上班,为公司背上千斤重的负担走上千里路,比跑一个马拉松还要辛苦千倍。下班后卸下负担已经腰酸背痛,对于马拉松的训练实在是有心无力!

而这个星期日,既是我期待的一天,三十公里练习,到时候就知道到底我的能力保留到那里,还能去到那里了。

Gunung Irau

What: Gunung Irau (2110m)
When: 4 Nov 2006 (Saturday)
Where: Cameron Highland
Head Count: 17
Deascription: Gunung Irau is the 9th highest mountain in Peninsula Malaysia. It is very unique mossy forest compare to others because of the moist environment up there. The trail is muddy. Hikers can take 3 - 4 hours to reach summit.


Visited Gunung Irau in Cameron Highland on 4/11/2006 under the lead of Kam Meng, witnessed the very impressive mossy forest. The flora in Gunung Irau is very unique, besides the rich and various mossy plants, I also saw few species of fungi which only seeing them for the first time. One of them is the blue color mushroom, another one is a very tiny red mushroom with only 3mm tall.

According to Kam Meng, the trail is become wider, more routes have been created by human, and hence, the mossy habitat is getting smaller! This suppose a very serious matter, a climber should be responsible to maintain the natural of the forest instead of destroy it, but many climbers just tent to forget the best practices in mountaineering or has limited knowledge about mountaineering, and caused a lost to our dearest flora and fauna in the forest.
