Tomorrow is the Standard Chartered KL International Marathon, the premier running event in Malaysia. About twenty thousand people have registered to run for the various races, 42.2 km, 21.1km, 10km and the fun run 5km. I entered the 10km race which is due to flag off at seven o’clock.
This will be the second 10km event that I have entered, the first being the Larian Bomba where I recorded a time of 93 mins. My target is to first better that 93 mins and then to break the 90min barrier. Going by the pace that I’m running these days I should be able to do it in 80mins (if I don’t walk). This will be a true test of the state of my mind as I would suddenly stop running in the last few races for no reason at all and because of that, my time suffers.
So regardless of pace, I will make sure I don’t suddenly stop running. Tonight’s going to be an interesting night as I want to get an early night sleep which will be real challenge as I don’t sleep easily.
I did another brick bike and run workout today. Nothing to intense, just half an hour for each of the workout. As the day of the triathlon gets nearer, I have to really get used to the transition between the bike and the running.
An interesting thing to note is that I must remember to start if slowly for tomorrow’s race. Whenever I start off strongly I always tire out in the end. Hopefully for this race I can get faster and faster rather than slower and slower.
Wish me luck and keep an eye out for the race report tomorrow.
