Day 1: Kinabalu Day Climb Challange

Here is my first day training:

I chose Likas lake which is about 30 minutes away from where I live at the moment. I've just recovered from food poisining for 4 days. Today is a good start for me although i knew i might feel a bit exhausted because i've been resting for days. So I decided to run on a flat ground which is easier with a faster pace. At the beginning I felt good and faster until the 4th KM I started to feel pain in my chest. At the 5th KM I stopped my run and decided to have a slow jog until to the 10th KM. So overall I've covered about 10KM in my first day training. Up to the 5.07 KM I took 26min 30secs although the target is to do it under 25 minutes. Anyway, It doesn't matter because this is my first day training for the challange.

The rest of the KM I decided to have a slow jog! The target is to run for the whole KM. But well, I my chest was uncomfortable and had to stop running. Well, that was okay overall just a little bit dissapointed because of the pain. Otherwise I could have run the whole KM.

For those of you who have just arrived on my page in my previous post I have mentioned that I am currently on my training for Kinabalu Day Climb Challange. This is not an event organised by any company but this is a challange for me as a part of my Training for next year's Kinabalu Climbathon. This is for me and my two brothers in law. Three of us will go for it by the end of Feb. Well we have tried the trial challange up to the 4th kilometer and it took me 1 hour 10 minutes to complete the track. I have another 1 hour 20 minutes with another 4.7KM left ahead and looking at the distance it's almost impossible to reach the top in less than 2 hours 30 minutes. My brother in law took 1 hour 16 minutes which is 6 minutes behind me. So at the moment our initial target is to reach the top in less than 2 hours 30 minutes. Considering our current fitness, most probably it would take 3 hours for us to reach the summit. Or even more! Usual climbers would take 2 days 1 night to climb Kinabalu mountain. Kinabalu Climbathon is the toughest mountain race in the world. Are you tough enough to join the race?
