It's about a week into the fourth month of the year and also the fourth month of my Comrades training for year 2014. And with all the positive vibes and progress, I am absolutely proud and happy to myself that I've managed to hit the 1,000KM running distance milestone.
Hitting 1,000KM distance isn't exactly a priority in the regime, but to hit the magic 4 digit distance within the given short span of time is certainly something I can pat my own shoulders on. 4 months seems and sounds short, but the journey has been a long tiring one. But at the end of each session, the feeling is just absolutely great knowing that my effort will be justified on race day itself.
I didn't recover very well from the recent Twilight Ultra Challenge 2014. Probably due to the travelling and also the bad timing of the company's audit period. A bit behind schedule now but that's fine as I do not intend to add back any lost session in the next. Am just moving forward with each day.
Another which isn't exactly a good news will be after battling haze back in March, April "welcomed" another challenge in the form of water rationing. With the critical level of water in our local dams, my residence has been put under Phase 4 of the rationing period with water only flowing in every alternate 2 days. After a sweaty run, clothes are screaming for a wash. And with no water, they will pile up and certainly will smell. In the mind, I was telling myself not to train because of this, but certainly, that isn't the answer. Therefore, the show must still go on while I await things to turn for the better. In the meantime, I will just have to find my own way to prevent the smell from spreading.
