Race Report - River Jungle Marathon 2013

Korang ada satu.. Kmi ada dua.
Plan asal aku mmg xnak turun game ni for 2013 edition. Sebab MarathonShop (MS) buat combo event. Satu kat Langkawi dan satu dekat Ulu Langat. Disebabkan kekangan kerja aku xregister. But things happen, agaknya permintaan untuk event Ulu Langat agak tinggi jadi dorang bukak lagi slot untuk game Ulu Langat je. At 1st place aku tgk fee dia agak mahal untuk satu event marathon. With that fee actually boleh register satu event ultra. But disebabkan aku xpernah buat dan mmg nak cover all marathon event yg ada dalam negara ni jadi aku buy the slot and it worth it.

Pre-Game
So lepas balik dari BIM with minimum issue aku agak confident to go a bit hard in this game. Agakterlebih confident, aku layan main futsal on Thursday dengan budak2 office. Nak jadi hal hamstring aku sudah tangkap. Friday aku dah berkira2 mcm mana nak handle RJM ni sbb aku yakin it will give me a problem with hamstring issue. So everyday aku layan mandi ais. Tido awal, makan nasi byk2 and amek skit protien. Hari Sabtu, aku turun Sabun Breakfast Run kat Precint 11. Saja berjalan ngan Zinov 3KM and i still can feel the pain at my right hamstring. Actually aku xkasi tau Suzi on this until the morning nak ke race venue.
Sabun Breakfast Run
Aku just kasi tau hamstring aku sakit and aku xleh push to much for RJM. Sbb aku xnak cause more serius injury and kacau plak plan untk event lain.  Jadi pagi tu kami plan to walk all the way route. Disebabkan game ni xda cut off time so kami plan to have 5KM/hour or 12 minute pace/KM. So boleh cover 9 hours for 43KM. Futher kami nak dptkan cuaca panas so we can simulate again the real game in this next 2 weeks. 

0KM - 10KM
So we are ready with the same objective. Nak jadi hal, masa kat starting line, we meet Fath, our partner in crime for Craze Ultra nanti. Dia pon nak join kami in this plan. So masa game start, kami just walk for the past 5 KM with 10minute/KM pace. Agak laju sebenarnya. Cuaca amat sejuk dan boleh nampak embun turun. Very nice. 
Still look fresh

With Sifu
After 5KM, aku rasa badan dah sedap and we start running. We run and walk for next 6KM seblum jumpa left turn to proceed fo the next 11KM. Actually route tahun ni route baru. It Y shape which ada 2 u-turn. 

11KM - 20KM
At this marking we just walk sbb dia naik bukit all the way up to 5KM. Masa ni dah nampak kaki2 laju dah u turn dan datang dari arah bertentangan. At this point aku kuar kamera and snap a lot of photo. At this point Suzi and Fath dah jalan dlu. So aku snap and kejar. 

All the way we keep cheering. Aku kuarkan wisel and buat bising all the way. At u-turn lagi kerap aku tiup wisel sbb dah nampak muka2 "Hatiku hancur diGenting Perez". Keep asking them to smile. Masa ni aku terjumpa Mohan my wisel sifu
 and we make more noise. 
Orang Emas?

Budak ni berlari sekali dengan yg lelain.. patut bagi bip nih..
Lepas u-turn is downhill. So masa ni Suzi and Fath jauh tinggalkan aku. Downhill mmg favorite so all the way non stop aku lari sampai 21KM marker. At this point we reach there about 2 minutes before 3 hours. So it a bit fast and 
far ahead from our plan. Masa ni aku, Suzi and Fath xface any issue. Still bertenaga dan masih bergumbira.

21KM - 30KM
At this point aku and Suzi plan to go a bit slow sebab aku rasa xselesa dengan hamstring aku. So Fath decide to go a bit faster. Dia pace and talk with each person yg dia jumpa all the way. Masa ni Jeff Ooi inform aku ada durian dkt u-turn dpn and ask me to go faster. Actually aku xminat sgt durian so we just enjoy cheering and taking photo. 
Lai.. Lai..

Overdose Gatorade dorang ni..

Masa ni jumpa ramai kawan2. Abg Zack pace Gloaria, Ijam pace Milli and we meet up with a lot of running couple at this point. We still din't face any issue sampai la ke marking 31KM.

31KM - 42KM
Dekat sini kmi gather balik with Fath. Suzi face some blister dengan kaki dia and we decide to threat the blister 1st. At this point we lost about 30 minutes, toilet, treating blister and refuiling. Timing masih dalam range. With this kind of pace kami akan reach in 6 to 7 hours. Which still find dimana plan asal is 9 hours by walking. All plan screw up and we decide just go with this pace and having fun.

So we keep run and walk. Selalu after 30KM Suzi selalu dah start ada simtom zombie kg pisang emas but this time she looks very strong. Jadi we maintain with our pace. Kalau dia dah start slow aku akan hold her hand and talk or buat lawak bongok. Else aku lari dan berada di depan. At 35KM, Fath start slow and help to pace one friends. Dia dah start down so aku just ask fath to drag him to finishing line.

Azmil pacer pakai basikal..

Budak2 nakal..
Me and Suzi keep run and walk. Sampai dkt 40KM we already reach 6hour 25 minutes. So at this point kami decide to walk up to the last bridge which is 100 meter from finishing and continue running from there. Masa ni we still strong and feel want to continue running sampai Nuang. But as a plan, this is only LSD, futher i still can feel uneasy with my hamstring. 

We reach finishing dalam 6jam 50minutes and pada aku still ok dengan method byk berjalan dari berlari. 

Post Game
Balik ja, kami terus ke kedai siam untuk dptkan urutan siam. It just to make sure we can recover faster then usuall sebab aku kne ke Temasek for some job related on Tuesday for the whole week. So xnak plak ada issue on recovery kat sana. Futher, lepas urut, hamstring aku terus ok. 
Finally..
In this game, again aku implimentkan method yg sama mcm BIM. No gel, only kismis dan madu. Futher aku makan buah lebih skit for some solid food intake. 

Now we are ready for the bigger one. TMBT (100KM Trail) and Craze Ultra (100KM Road) in 5 days gap. Hopefully semua berjalan lancar.
