Melisa Ali  The daily grind of a kid's attempt to recover from her first full marathon >> Kuching Marathon 2015 - 06:04:04

Understandably felt rusty after 3 short runs during Ramadan, which I couldn't have dreamt was possible before. Melisa, you're doomed 🐳 Will need to reassess what training can be achieved now.
.
Btw, I'm running a half which is not a half πŸ™„ #tibatiba #selftortured #whyyyyyyy

Ramadan day 21. πŸ‘±πŸ»β€β™€οΈ <- Melisa, ALWAYS fail and end up running with food sloshing about inside her.
.
I felt bloated, uncomfortable and beached whale-like on getting back at it 🐳. Like seriously, I have to make sure I'm not full beforehand next round! My poor ❀️ is under a bit of strain too - heart rate was soaring all the way 😭😭. Thank you legs for cooperating even with me taking it slow.

Happy Global Running Day guys πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ.

Ramadan day 20. No runs but πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸ˜š.. despite being carless and knowing the route to shah alam was a bit on the brutal side (thank youuuuu host for inviting, but.. is this place even shah alam?!! πŸ˜…) my FOMO got the better of me and there I was on the starting line. #malambersamaidola #newbie Also thank you to tukang kutip and tukang hantar last night!! ☺️

Ramadan day 14. Another go at night run πŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’¨ It felt so messy and had me coming up with ALL the excuses πŸ™ˆ Yes, Melisa is just mentally wimpy. Kesimpulan : session itself was moderately successful. Planned a 15km, executed 9k - running on a fullish tummy is NOT cool! #lessonlearnt #oldhabitsdiehard #thelastoneagain 😫

Ramadan day 12. Plan A was 7km as per schedule. Plan B was whatever I could catch up being the late comer, as usual πŸ™†πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ...
.
Well, 7km turned into 13 and it felt wonderful ☺️😚 (minus the part where I ran solo all the way 😭). Haven't had double digits in a loooong time! I did walked a few times when I felt like I was going to die tho πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ Note to self: must bring water next round!

Well I guess I know where all that pizza from last night went πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ˜‚ Thanks ajak! #runmadhan

So.. this happened last week! β€οΈπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸŽ‰ Road tripping, nonstop eating and silliness mixed with a lot of soreness on the #runcation
.
And well. I did it! That failed run was accomplished. Not perfectly, but the effort was there πŸ™ŒπŸ» I signed up for the run with intentions of breaking 5:30, but the weather (lameeee excuse, Melisa! πŸ™„) made it pretty clear that just making it to the finish line 🏁 was going to be an achievement!
.
Note to self: No matter how many times you zikir-ed to DNF, you should be damn proud that you fought all the way to the line! πŸ‘ŠπŸ» Ok now kids, bila kita nak buat appreciation dinner? Penat tau sis towing uols jauh-jauh 😌 #perlismarathon2018

Recovery run done βœ… No pic of me at race because they are all hideous πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #runcationisover

When you wish to finish strong within cut off time without any injury, imagine #stresslevel 😳😒. Melisa was lucky to have the lads "waited" at KM25 for them all to embark the whole drama together. They really pushed themselves to finish the race, and completed just 5 minutes to COT and felt better for it. (Speaking in the third person helps me to ignore the fact I am going to ache x2 now tomorrow) #pewai #misikejarsweeper #sipisipiCOT

Thank you boys. I really admire people who shine even after all the storms they've been through. Today was a tough one, and revenge claimed πŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ #fullmarathon #finisher #perlismarathon2018
