In fact it better be completely healed by tomorrow cos wifey and me are running the New Balance Pacesetters 15K run at 6.30am in Putrajaya and I really don't want to miss it. Wifey has also warned me that if my heel isn't healed (pun intended) then I'm banned from taking part and will have to don my cheerleader outfit and just cheer her on instead ... LOL!
So it's a good thing that the injury is healing just nicely and I'm definitely going to be able to run tomorrow, though I won't be pushing myself for any personal best timing this time round. I'll just be out to have some fun :D The race is in Putrajaya and the route itself is pretty flat with one or two tiny inclines. It's always good to know your route beforehand so you know how to pace yourself during the race.
I used to just run like a maniac and find myself losing steam halfway through but not anymore. I've gone more technical (a little too much sometimes, wifey would say) and tend to take all factors into account when I run these days like route elevations, road surfaces, hydration stations and all that. Trust me, they really do make a huge difference during a race, especially for old fogeys like me :D
I haven't even put out my running attire yet and it's something of a ritual for me to have my running gear all decked out and ready a day before any race event. Call it a runners superstition or whatever but I feel that if I do it at the last minute, my race will end up being an awful one. And it also helps so that you won't be rushing like some maniac looking for your stuff the next day ... LOL!

Ok, gotta go grab some food and carbo load for my race tomorrow. You all have a wonderful weekend, ya :D
