KL International Marathon 2008 Race Report

My training for this race started way back in November '07. My training goal was to keep my training as consistent as possible with 5 to 6 days of running a week plus a little more focus on building core strength. That was it - very simple. And at the end of the 4 months, I found out that I'd just put in my best ever training. I said "best", not "perfect". There's the usual fight with illness and work but I'd say that this one had to be the best to-date considering the work-family juggling routine. My tracking had been accurate (no more guessing game of the mileage and pace!) thanks to the Garmin and in the asics Kayano 12 and 2120, I was blessed by being injury free, not even a case of ITB hit me.

  • Hi Carboman,
    I am the guy who greets you right before the start. Congrat on your great timing! I didn't do that well myself, a dismaying 30 mins more than my previous 4h:51m in the PBIM 2007.
    I am preparing for the PBIM 2008, hopefully will meet you and some of the fellow runners there as well.
    Have a good and safe training for the Sundown marathon.
    Regards,
    KY Chow

    Kum Yein: Welcome. Thanks for introducing yourself! Great achievement nevertheless for you. I'm not running PBM opting Sundown instead.

    Rabbit: You did well too! A few more halves and you'll be tempted to try the full. Or has the temptation set in already??? ;)

    Haza: Thanks. Is Running Mom a new Stan Lee superhero? You were amazing too! I guess I did but not entirely happy. Will try to do better. All in the pacing. See you at Sundown!

    Frank: Lets ROCK Sundown kaukaulat!

  • As usual an excellent race report and congratulations on yet another marathon PR. Will this be an annual (getting PR) event? Looking at your 1km split times, up to 30km, they were consistently below 6 min. Over the last 12 km, your 1 km splits were on average 40 seconds slower. So about 8 minutes time was "lost". Would weight training to strengthen the core muscles help?
