Now, for starters, actually don't know what I was thinking when I registered. Okay maybe I do and wasn't satisfied with my BIM HM timing but you know how when you run so often that whenever there's a race, you tend to register on impulse? I think that was the case. So I did, exactly on the closing date which was on the 7th May 2015. Registration fee was RM100 for normal fee, cheaper for early bird. I thought my registration didn't get through but surprisingly it did. And I got the confirmation in an instant. Anyways, before I forgot to mention, this race is organized by AsiaXtreme. This particular race, the X3 Challenge is a 3 day event, with a marathon (in this case, a half marathon) on the first day, a duathlon on the second day and triathlon on the third day. Mind you, I have been getting some bad reviews about race organized by this organizer but I am still optimistic. You won't know unless you experience it right?
Training was as usual, but instead of hiking, I would just run loops at Bukit Padang. But I'm not always in a good condition to run. My back pain occasionally will come back to taunt me. I also thought I would just do long runs one the weekends but my car decides to fail on me a couple of times. In this case, 3 times. So, even if I did manage to run, I still think it's not a good enough training.
