But first, Sundown updates:
1) I think I'll probably stay at the hostel in Joo Chiat Rd since it's reallllly cheap (RM 36) eventhough the MRT is quite far and the area is a bit rowdy. I'm quite spent this month so can't really splurge on a decent hotel.
2) I'm left to figure out the transportation. Where would the race kit pickup place be again? Need to figure out transportation from bus stop-race kit place-hostel-race venue-hotel. Hoping that the taxis are in abundance after midnight. (I think I'd probably finish in 3hrs)
Today I went for a recovery run. Wanted to run a normal 5k loop but since ankle is still painful and calves are sore I figured a slow relaxing short run would be more beneficial. So I forgo my normal 5k route and decided to explore my neighbourhood. For areas that are gated, I cheerfully asked the guards if I could pass through and run inside and all of them were okay with it, even passed me the thumbs up as if I'm running in a race!
It was a nice run. I think I ran for 30 minutes, distance not measured, but roughly around 5k, not more. Came back and stretched for a long period, concentrating on my legs and calves. Ankle still is painful and I have no idea why. Oh well.
I really miss the passion I have for running. It used to be the sole reason I was totally grounded and happy, and I felt strong and healthy and invincible after a nice run. Now I seem to rely on something else. I was glad that I enjoyed this run, however short, for the awesome feeling, o pressure, just me, my feet, my breathing, and the nice view.
