From uncertainty to maybe to now registered, the three of have signed up for #TMBT2017 and what better time than the first day of Aidilfitri holidays to start our training for 30K and 50K trail marathon. Nothing like an intense cardio traversing 804m of elevation in a technical forest to kick start the morning.

Selamat Hari Raya to all our Muslim family and friends!

So today's 40km trail run didn't quite pan out as planned — and sometimes plans change as did ours this morning. I'm still glad we completed one Shahbandar McFarm Agro loop. Temps peaked 36°C with several mud stricken flats including one where you absolutely cannot pass except to just dive your shoes right in. Completing the 20K loop is still pretty awesome

My favourite piece of Columbia arm sleeves have failed for the second time (just to confirm that the first time it failed wasn't my imagination). Both my arms now got considerably after a previous 10km in Liang and today's 20km both days HOT! The sleeves still work in that they keep my skin cool during activity but their UV-ness has completely evaporated.

Anyhow, my buddy and I had to cut short our 40km training today because he felt unwell just as we were finishing our first loop of 20km. I could continue the second loop solo but he's my ride home (to Seria) so ... I'm absolutely fine with calling it a day earlier. Besides, I got a lot of things done in BSB from the spare time!

Weather at Jerudong was forecast for thunderstorm at 6pm. There was no rain much less thunderstorm and that was a great thing as the 10 of us headed into Mcfarm trail strating from Jerudong Fish Market for a 20km night trail run from a 10K loop.

The night was cool and the air was right to run up each steep uneven climb and power walked the flats, with an additional 1km to complete June's #Strava Half Marathon challenge.

Great night out with family and friends although I didn't really see very much of them other than when our paths crossed on the return route.

Yesterday was #GlobalRunningDay 2017 so I ran. Twice.

Did the first run in Sungai Liang on a hilly mountain bike trail in the morning. Did the second run on road in the evening at OGDC and finished with new V02Max of 50.

When in Vietnam, the only drink more refreshing than iced coffee on a hot day.

Welcome to my small studio where big things happen, sometimes disastrously, I'll admit 🙈

In between numerous commutes to BSB, found time at the end of the week to wrap up a shoot for Mr Baker's Bakeshop's 2017 Hari Raya hampers (gift packs include their spanking new signature mugs), squeeze in a family run and dinner before I fly off to Ho Chi Minh City today.

Some days when you absolutely do not want rice there's premixed Italian salad from Supa Save Brunei. Add cherry tomatoes and chilled honey roasted chicken breast cutlets and that's one meal sorted.

This box of salad was placed under tungsten lighting on my kitchen table. I love how #SamsungGalaxyNote5's Food Mode effortlessly removes the dreaded colour cast and instantly gives this dish the appeal it deserves 😍

It's hard to put plans into action when the morning got so hot unexpectedly. Recorded a max (direct sun) temp of 39°C. Originally targeting to complete 15km with a total ascent of 600m however at numerous segments we came close to giving up due to the heat.

We decided to charge on, and while we covered extra hills earlier on at Bukit Pak Natu we completely by-passed the 1.6km of Keluyoh Hills (sure to yield some nice elevation there) and shortened a return segment at Bukit Segment (more missed elevation). If not for an evening engagement (2.5 hours drive) I might have continued for maximum elevation workout. Regardless the training must go on as countfown to Cameron Ultra nears.

Once a week at Tamu Seria I look out for these delicious fiddlehead ferns called 'bilin' or 'miding'. You have to shop around and quickly too if you want to get your $1 worth. I've seen stores when a $1 sometimes gets you half a bunch and sometimes but very rarely the dollar gets you a whole lot more like today.

On a side note, I don't necessarily buy them every week because thanks to the internet fears these ferns are said to be toxic. I think the internet itself is far more toxic!

I had no idea how sore my calf muscles had gotten following last Sunday's half marathon until this morning when I stopped by Bukit Shahbandar for a solo reverse (clockwise) route run — they were so tight it took about 3km of massaging before they felt relaxed.

By the time I got out at Pondok 4 (remember, reverse route) instead of turning left to exit, I turned right and headed towards Pondok 5 and back tracked all the way to the upper level car park. Today's route included the rock segment up to P9, steps to the Menara including the stairs up to the top of the Menara itself before finally exiting the park.

So the much anticipated race day finally came and we were up at 4.30am to get ready for our 5.30am flag-off. Vests, bladders, gels, the usual stuff to pack for this morning's half marathon distance.

This is the first time Chris, Jamie and Jewel attempted a half marathon distance nevermind their finishing times won't earn them a Finisher Tee or medal in an actual road event with a 3-hour COT window, I'm especially proud of their bravery and determination to go through with it.

Fatigue, knee and ankle pains, blisters, hip flexor tendinitis, ITB were all collectively reported this morning post-run. At the end of the day, shared pains strengthens bonds among family and friends (including Rd Dy not in picture who had leave for another engagement) . Thank you all for making this weekend awesome!
