Sorry for the lack of updates. Just has been too tired from work related issues, that training is down the drain. Even the spinning session didn't go as plan, and the only workout I have is only on the weekends. How I wish a day is longer than 24 hours. Sigh...
Anyway, as of last weekend, the discomfort on my left ankle is still bothering me. Running distances above 15KM will initiate the pain. And during the usual 20KM run over at Kinrara, I was forced to walk back at the last 5KM. It was then that Jamie had told me to think about my upcoming adventure. Sadly, I have to agree with him and that brought me to the realm of thinking. The chance for a 50% refund in case of pulling out has just ended just last week. Though I have yet to make up my mind, I was lucky enough that I had not purchase any transportation tickets nor accommodation. Just in case I really am forced to pull out, the damage won't be that great.
A few days ago, I did a 10KM and a 15KM run. Pace was reasonable and I was glad that there weren't any pain. I hope it will stay this way, but honestly speaking, I need longer distances to justify it. I really want to run the century distance whether if I'm fully prepared for it or not. Timing is no longer an issue, I simply just want to complete it. And if training isn't enough, I still believe I can managed it through the experiences gained the previous attempts. Last year's 84KM adventure was done with minimal training and although I know an extra 16KM will make a huge difference, I simply believe I can. Just allow me to run this, as after it, running time will be extremely hard to find.
I simply just want to run it. But I won't be afraid nor be shameful to pull out if I'm really forced to. I just probably be sad but that will heal with time. To pull out or to push forward, that is something that should be revealed at the end of this month. I will really have to dig deep this time.
