Breaking thru

I usually have so much on my hands that i seldom venture out of my comfort zone. spread myself too thin and i might just disappear so i'm very careful with over committing. a wrong move and everything would grind to a complete halt. like it or not the family depends on me to keep my act together.

I have to be very careful not to get 'too' sick.  or injure any limb. or worse still break any bone.

So i end up being your proverbial katak bawah tempurung lol.. i keep to myself & stay well within my boundaries.

Except on rare occasions, the once-in-a-blue-moon kind :D

No one was more surprised than me when i suddenly decided to go for my 3rd loop (12km) round the tasik.  i've been running for close to 6 years now and never have i even once, had the inclination of breaking the 2 loop barrier (8km) i'd set on myself.  cukup2 la kan, its not like i run for races or anything lol.

But the thought of my running buddies juney & azza huffing & puffing away in sunny hatyai kinda spurred me on lol and before i knew it, there i was into my 3rd loop :p  such is the power of motivation heheheh.

So, i braved the unknown (cewah drama skit ekekekeh) & ventured out of my comfort zone.

And no, i did not suffer a gruesome fate ;p

Just a sharp pain on the underside of my forefoot towards the last km.  maybe its the adizero. maybe i actually need the cushioning towards the front of my shoes. dunno. need to experiment summore.

Turned out to be a weekend with everyone going for their own 'thang' (just ask golfman & cikgu lol). a last fling perhaps before we settle down to the business of  embracing Ramadhan

Hope yours was as enjoyable as mine and i leave you with some recent pics of nicolei.

Lording over his domain but..

 ..looks like miso the young upstart is having other ideas lol.

Finding every chance to be with missy's things

 ..his way of dealing with her absence i guess.
