Finally, it is 100km

This is the 5th week to Sundown Ultra Marathon.
This is the 20th week since my training began.
It is 101km weekly mileage, for the first time, and perhaps the last.

With Chen the flying pig's advice, it is just a nice timing to hit 100km weekly mileage one month before the race. Then follow by a lower mileage, says 60-70km for next two weeks before actual taper down. It is not recommended to taper down too early because body will get lazy.

This morning's run is just fantastic. I had 26 hours rest (the feeling is just like jet-lag) to let my body recover from 46km finished on 2/5 4am. I woke up later than planned and I reached Bukit Aman at 6.30am on Sunday, 3/5. I started my run at 6.40am which is quite late as I'd ended at 9am.

The weather was superb nice in the morning which is totally different from past few weeks' morning which are hot and humid. The air was so refreshing and the 6.45am sky was clear and as blue as saphhire. My legs were set off with a little heavy move, but all soreness gone after 2km warm up. I did a 21km easy run and returned to Bukit Aman by 8.45am.

Yeah, I logged 86km from 1/5-3/5 three days in a row, but I'm still pretty sure that it going to be painful to run a 84km in one stretch!

Just smile, even it is painful.
