Completed a pair of events over the weekend. I accomplished both events with average pace of 5:5X mins/KM and I marked it as my new achievement & best record so far.
The first event for 5K #LarianSukanSea2017 (no timing chip) was easier with quite a flat route, but the flag off / starting point was too small to release a number of ~20K runners. Made it with average pace 05:48 mins/KM.
The second event was the 10K #MerdekaMyBuddiesRun2017. At the beginning point, it was very hard to pass ~2K runners and i ended up with 6:29 mins at the first KM. The hardest part was the hilly route & it even harder with the transparent route (you can clearly see the hill from quite a distance) which can cause a 'major mental breakdown' to the runners (like it did to me & I cursed a lot 😂). Completed the run with gun time 00:57:56, average pace of 05:54 mins/KM & chip time 00:56:46, average pace of 05:41 mins/KM.
Despite of my new personal time recorded, sungguh terasa kerdil lari dgn otai otai malaya 😂😆. Nevertheless, completing all the run is my top priority.
