Route: Lap around Taman Desa
Distance: 6km (Garmin: 5.76km – definitely something went off because I usually see 5.90-5.95km)
Timing: 30:46 for 5:20 min/km pace
No game plan per say for this morning – basically something short or maybe even long but the overriding factor would be SLOW. Something to shake out the legs after Sunday’s event. Did it happen? Not sure…it was short…the pace seemed “slower” for the distance recorded but if this was the usual distance…maybe it was a tad too fast. And no, please do not tell me that this is the “new” SLOW!
House to turn off at Jalan Desa via Old Klang Road (2.839km; 15:17)
Felt good because it was flat and there were tailwinds along the highway. Yeah enjoy it while it lasts, BEFORE the 1.8-2km climb in Taman Desa.
Long continuous climb on Jalan Desa (1.784km; 9:48)
Whoa…now regret sets in…should I done the flattish Desa Waterpark route. Why didn’t anyone knock any sense into me?!?!?!?!?! Whatever. I. Am. Finishing. After. This.
Back to the house (1.138km; 5:37)
Wee! My favourite section – downhill, downhill and downhill. Did I mention downhill? So that gave me a bit of a momentum to push the pace on the flat straight road back to the house.
Bento Box Lunch: definitely very Japanese today – got these candy for dessert from one of the ladies from the gym
