3R International Run 2015

Hi Sorry for the super late post. I’ve been busy with my work and training, couldn’t find time to “mengelat” and write about this race 😛

I arrived a bit late, around 6:15am to the race venue which was late. The race starts at 6:30am, and I couldn’t see the luggage area and I can see a familiar face at the medical test. It was Dr Laila, UM team doctor during Masum 2011 at UPM. So I asked her favor to keep my beg at the medical tent and proceed to warm up. While I was warming the MC said the race will be flagged off at 6:45am, I felt very lucky at that time. I have an additional 15 minutes to warm up.

With Dr Laila


I didn’t see much familiar faces at the starting line, once flagged off I saw one lean muscled (Rosnizam) runner blazing in front, he got this very long high kick stride. I know I can’t follow that fella, so I stick to my pace. As we are running there’s a pack formed around 6-7 runners, and the pack tried to hold me by staying in front of me and slow down the pace. When we reach the bridge before PICC, I pushed my self on the downhill and stayed in front of the pack. After we passed PICC, I broke away from the pack and ran my on own.

I could still see Rosnizam in ahead of me, but I cant keep up with him. I was waiting for him to get tired slow down as his stride is still long and high kicking, oh man I was wrong he’s still running a lon stride with that high kick. Reaching 6km+, Neo Shun Jie came from behind, I was tired already and I followed him. Neo was running a very a good pace, I managed to follow him till 8km++. After enough recovery, I increased my pace and tried catch up with Rosnizam, as I can feel I’m closing the gap. The race ended as Rosnizam came first, I was second, and Neo was third.

Men Open 10km result

Overall, I’m satisfied myself improved my PB by 19 seconds, from 36:15 (Shape Night Run 2015) to 35:56, but its not good enough, I was hoping to shave more. Hopefully I can do much better in my next 10km race.

My 10th KM Split, the race was 10.10km in my gps watch
