Day 2: Kinabalu day trip challange Training

Today is my second day training. I don't know why I was so sleepy and tired today. My watch showed 4.30 PM and in an hour time I should be running but instead of running I was fallen asleep with my laptop. It was my first time fallen asleep in the evening since i was on holiday back in June last year. Luckily, I had my half training in the afternoon about 1PM. The sky was cloudy, dark and it looked like it was going to rain. Then, I quickly picked up my Dunlop shoes and started my stratching. Cloudy weather is the best temperature to run because it's not too hot. About 10 minutes later I started the first 2.7KM with a quick sprint and managed to finished it in 13minutes 17seconds. Not too bad but slower than my personal best record which is 12minutes 50seconds about c couple of months ago. I knew I didn't do well because my start wasn't fast enough.

Anyway, after the first 2.7KM I had a rest for about 15 minutes and later I started again with a slower pace. I managed to finish the second 2.7KM in 16minutes 14minutes. I finished the training with a recover run of slow jog. I did enjoy the runs except the rain caught me a few minutes before I managed to finish my second run.

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?
