Few weeks prior to MPIB2014, I only brisk walked. Itu pun pancit mak aiii. Side stitch lah, sengal sana sini, hmmphh toksah cakap la. Then I slowly started to walk/jog/walk. I am generally a slow runner. Post pregnancy, laaaagi la selloww. Takpa mak, jangan gelojoh mak.
Basically I have to build up my stamina, condition my body, right from the start. When 5th Jan arrived, I was still nervous. Risau pun ye, syok pun ye. Dah lama tak join running event weiii...kemaruk weili..My longest distance of walk/jog was 5KM. My concern lies mostly on the niggles around my right inner thigh joint. It normally throbs during and after my walk/jog but thankfully it will be gone the following day. Plank, bridge, clamshell, jane fonda. Sumer lah dok buat to strengthen the pelvic, hip and core.

Major difference this time? I brought along my pump and cooler bag. Along the way to Padang Merbok, sempat mengepam. Dapat la dalam 3oz. Kena la buat pengosongan, kalau idak ada pulak terlebih bounce. And I had to wear double bra. Sports bra dah ketaaaat huhuhu.
The queue to collect medal and food was looong, an area for improvement for year 2015. By the time we got our medals, bergambar satu round, we rushed home. The post race euphoria was there and terasa nak hang around to absorb the post race ambience that I've missed so much. However, since I'm breastfeeding, my tank is filling up and chest started to feel tight ngehehehe..cepat2 lah kami balik. Also, selalunya kami berjimba2 kat kedai mamak mana2 sambil reminiscing funny moments during the race. Huhuhuh..another activity that we had to forego. Wellll, have to pandai2 manage lah kan :)
