Scheduled 22.53km run today. I've improved. So happy. But before we get to that, lets rollback for a bit.
The night before, I slept at 10pm. After watching episode 2 of the tv series Touch. This series is nice, it's that dood from 24, right? I don't really like him but somehow this one is good. Woke up at 11pm twice because of nightmare. Trying to recall if I watched any weird horror movies lately. Somehow, it was a creepy weird dream. It's like I was going to a public toilet and the shower in one were on and next thing you know somebody is choking me. Dafuq. I can't brain this. I couldn't sleep after that. My alarm was set at 2am. So for 2 hours I was looking at the ceiling. Sad case of being scared. My sis went to Kundasang with her friend. I would have gone if I don't have scheduled run today.
Finally get off from the bed around 2:05am, you know that feeling when you get extremely hungry that you feel empty inside? That was my morning feeling. So, I thought maybe my final medicine for the rib pain made me hungry. Hey, I had dinner the night before and that doesn't seem to cover the whole emptiness. Showered, ate 3 bananas and drink water. Feel slightly better. Did some browsing till 3:20am. Stomach ache, went to the toilet twice. Oh lord.
Left home at 3:45am, meet up with Daniel, but before that, went to the toilet again. ARGH! WTH!
Then I thought, screw this shit, I'm just gonna run and complete it. I've separated the 2km warm up from the actual mile to cover so I could at least maintain my pace cause it only shows your average pace, if include the 2km, my garmin will keep beeping like crazy from beginning till the end. I wasn't sure how far I should be going and when I should turn but then decide I'll turn once I reach my final 10km countdown. But reaching 11km countdown seems just about right. Tripped on a rock at km 12. FML. I nearly fell but manage to keep my balance and kept going. Doesn't seem to have any problem.
In my head, okay, final 10km. I can do this! Yeah I maange to push through till I started getting a little bit hungry at the final 7km or was it 8km. And I started walking a bit but run again once the twitch is gone. Pass the Yayasan Sabah bridge, a stranger stop and waited for me and ask if he could join me run. I just went pass him cause he gave me this weird creepy vibe. There were other runners around but at the opposite road. So I thought okay, I'm just gonna finish this at below 7 mins pace. Run walk run walk all the way. At my final 4km, I hear somebody behind me. Then when I stopped for a walk, the same fellow was walking and talking to me. Ask if he could be my friend. I said no and tried to catch my breath. I think I said no to most of his questions and finally said "Okay, I'm gonna finish up my run now, bye". And sped all the way back. Who cares if I was tired, that was creepy. FML.
At least he wasn't chasing me.
My final 2km, tripped and sprained the right ankle again when trying to cross the road. I think a bunch of people in cars saw me nearing to fall down. Just keep going! At least, I completed my 20.53km at 6:59 mins pace. Hope I won't encounter the same fellow next week ARGH. Creepy shit. I need bodyguards from now on.
Gonna ice my right ankle later and hot pack for the left rib lol. Not fully healed, but it's getting better.
