Virgin New Balance MT101 Minimalist shoe on trail run @ FRIM

It's weekend. It's was Saturday. Everyone was busy preparing for their races. No one to date with.  I'm got nothing to do and I'm just went to run solo on trail which I'm wanted to do it since I got my New Balance MT101 minimalist shoe on Monday.

I'm been tweeting #NewBalance MT101 and I finally received it together with LineBreak compression from Singapore via stopover in Thailand. A very long story & complex things yet faith brought both item to me! hehe...


FRIM - Forest Research Institue Malaysia 
The last time i was here when I'm running with CariRunners. Our Taikor from Penang were in KL, and we brought him to FRIM here for running! I remember that day was Sunday, after we done running in FRIM, we went to Batu Caves famous frog porridge for breakfast. 
After that, we went to Batu Caves temples and climb up. hehe... 


I'm arrived at FRIM around 7:00am and the walking path were cleaned ! I'm loving it! Well maintained. 

From the bottom, starting from the "Masjid Jamek" I start to run up ! It's trail. It's uphill... Lucky I got the energy to run up... slowly... hehe... 
On the half way, I was overtake by some runners! Horey! I was thinking, my trail run today wont be boring anymore! I got someone to pace with. Waits, It's not just someone, but some two, three, four and fifth runners continue to overtake me! Wow... 
I keep hard pushing and keep my pace to catch up with them! It's so hard! Running trail Vs running on road are totally different games! But Im love it! 


The trail. Im loving the FRIM's trail route... 


Running with my virgin New Balance MT101 Minimalist trail shoe at FRIM trail.
Pairing NB MT101 with my injinji toe sock!  Since it's minimalist, it's totally no cushioning. The 14.5 KM trail running were taxing on my calf muscles. I feel the pain for rest of the day! 


Self cam-whoring @ one the pit-stop! hehe... 


My newly meet friends! They are fast!! Nice to meet you all! 


After the pit-stop, there's a very hilly uphill... I give up on half way! Revert back to walking. Wait I'm well train in the trail running, I'm going to run up all the way this hill !!! 


After the hill, it's a nice view with 3 routes to choose ! Which one you would like to take? 
Oh yeah, on other hand, Im running with my Linebreak "no nonsense compression" ! hehe... 


Another self cam-whoring! Im really enjoy the nice surrounding going up hill... It's a very nice forest farm.
"Ladang Hutan" the trees are planned. First time running here and just discover such a nice view!


Feel like running in oversea right? The trees, the trails... It's just awesome! 

Finally reached on the top part of the FRIM !


This video, it's downhill and I can't believed I can run downhill this fast on trail with camera in hand ! The NB MT101 really gives me confidence on the downhill... That's why I got the confidence with just its a try and downhill as fast as i can...
On the last part of the video, it's show my NB shoe and Linebreak compression tight! I'm just loving it! Next week going to run again!


Ah! I likes my New Balance MT101 minimalist shoe on trail run! This MT101 going to accompany me for The Most Beautiful Thing  (#TMBT) : Sabah Adventure Challenge 100 KM Trail Ultra Marathon in November 2011. 



Running on trail....

Lastly, thank you Azrul for the ice-cream. It's just awesome! hehe...

FRIM is going to be my another training ground for trail running. I'm shall be reporting to FRIM on every weekend without fail unless something urgent. If you thinks you can catch up with us, welcome to join us on every Saturday morning 7:00am, that's if you able to wake up. haha...
