Team Time Trial organized by Belait Cycling Club (Geotrax) and held at Kg Lumut and Seria ByPass Highway. 25 Teams registered and we managed to get 4th Place. We weren’t actually trying to win the race. The strategy was not to drop any team members and I was the weaker link. I wasn’t performing well on that day. so they have to slow down the speed just for me to keep up.

BIBD CE Alaf Marathon and Half Marathon – 23rd and 24th November 2013
I was selected 1 of the 25 runners to represent the 1st BIBD CE ALAF 42km Marathon NIGHT run. All of us had 8 weeks to prepare for the Marathon and for me I have to put extra work since I didn’t do much of any kind of short or long run.
For the first 4 weeks, my training program was consistent and after that due to my other activities such as BCC Team Time Trial, Powerman Malaysia and Tour de Bintan – my run was somehow affected.
How I ran my marathon. Since it is not a race and I’m planning to do the half marathon run at 5:45am, I’ve decided to take it easy – run/walk strategy.
From the beginning I have planned to do run/walk routine and to finish my race within 5:30 hours and my results are not that far. I believed that I can do sub 5 hours if I just keep on running because I know my fitness is good for sub 5 but since I’m doing the half marathon afterwards, I‘ve decided just to take it easy.
My half marathon time was very slow. I was among the 10 bottom runners. I was still doing the run/walk routine.
Overall I managed to do 42km and 21km with 2 hours break in between. Another ULTRA. 42km + 21km = 63km
