Sundown Marathon - more news update

I was checking the website - Adidas Sundown Marathon and come across this newsletter the Sundown hall-of-fame. It is the list of participants for the Ultramarathon - 306 participants altogether and out of that only 2 runners from Brunei. Me and my friend Ahmadzzzz.

Less than 3 weeks to go and dalam kepala ku ani macam macam perkara ku fikirkan. We are given 14.5 hours to finish 84km and I'm worried that I wouldn't be able to finish in time. Training ku paling jauh 21km which is not enough. Tension tension.........

My target is to finish within 12 hours. The first 42km in 5.5 hours and the last 42km around 6.5 hours. I still have an extra 2.5 hours to finish the race if something do happen like I'm getting to slow, cramped or anything which can spoil my run/walk strategy. I hoped I won't fall asleep while running. This is night running from 8:30pm until the next morning.

Some of my friends say I'm crazy doing this. 42km is already far enough and I'm doing the ultra - gila kah?!! Tapi bila lagi kan mencuba - tunggu umur 40 or 50 baru kan mencuba 50 miles.......

Whatever happen, I must finish the race before/after the time limit. Malu kalau DNF (did not finish) - rugi orang sponsor aku kalau inda habis.

Keep on running dude.....................

jgn risau sangat, mesti boleh punya dan tak perlu berlatih sampai 84km, rasanya 60-65km pun dah ok.Pelari marathon pun dia orang tak berlatih hingga 42km tapi hanya buat 30-35km sahaja.
