TMBT - Qualify status for UTMB

The Most Beautiful Thing : 100KM Ultra trail marathon, single stage ! 36 hours cut off time!
See, isn't beautiful ? Photo taken by tristupe.com who recently went to Mount KK Climbathon!

It's 10 days to The Most Beautiful Thing 100KM ultra marathon. Months of training going to be tested in the ultra.

Physical and mental challenges. No turning back... Just do it.

Received email updates from the Race director of TMBT. I have 10 days to strategies my running strategy and nutrition planning.

In the email updates, we were informed that TMBT 100KM has been given qualifying status for the legendary Ultra-Trail Du Mont Blanc UTMB and competitors who complete 100KM course within 36 hours cut off time stand to gain 2 points !

From the map, it's look simple right? That's the good positive thinking I'm practicing! I CAN DO IT.

Chin Ann is going to complete his 1st ultra trail marathon 100KM.

During the race day over 2 days single stage, 36 hours cut of time, I will be updating my status via SMS to twitter.
Do follow me ( @vin_ann)  if you wish to follow my TMBT race status updates.

KL Metropolis - TTDI Naza

The mega project by TTDI Naza. 

According to a source, 100 storey tower is inside the KL Metropolis plan...

Our beloved PM will officially unveil on 25 Oct 2011. 
Some background on the KL Metropolis back dated on 12/23/2009. 


TTDI KL Metropolis Sdn Bhd and Kumpulan Jetson Bhd Form Joint Venture Called Kumpulan Jetson Bhd
NAZA Group has drafted Kumpulan Jetson Bhd as a partner to develop the country's largest exhibition centre on 62.45 acres of prime federal land off Jalan Duta in Kuala Lumpur. Naza, through wholly-owned TTDI KL Metropolis Sdn Bhd and Kumpulan Jetson Bhd sealed a pact to form a 51:49 joint venture called TTDI Jetson Sdn Bhd. Kumpulan Jetson will eventually get a MYR 628 million job to build the proposed Matrade Centre, which will have a one million sq ft of gross floor area. TTDI Jetson will sign a proper development agreement with TTDI KL Metropolis once Kumpulan Jetson has obtained shareholders' nod for the proposed JV at an extraordinary general meeting to be convened soon. TTDI Jetson will then award Kumpulan Jetson the contract to build the Matrade Centre for MYR 628 million. The project will boast of hotels, offices, residences and shopping malls, with a gross development value of MYR 15 billion over 15-20 years.

TTDI KL Metropolis signs agreement with government of Malaysia to develop Matrade centre. The MYR 628 million Matrade centre is to be developed by TTDI KL Metropolis, a unit of the Naza Group, under a privatisation agreement signed with the government of Malaysia and its agency Syarikat Tanah dan Harta Sdn Bhd. Matrade is the national export promotion agency under the trade ministry. Construction of the centre which is to be built on a 13.1 acre piece of land along Jalan Duta and a stone's throw from the popular Mont Kiara suburb is expected to begin in the second quarter of next year and to be completed in 2014. The project could raise eyebrows as to the need for another exhibition and convention centre in the Klang Valley, which already has at least three well-known ones, plus another under-utilised 1.3 million sq ft centre in Putrajaya. Green building initiatives would also be employed in the building which would be designed with a clear ceiling height of nine to 12 metres, a floor loading maximum of 5 tonnes/sq metre and an auditorium that can hold 1,230 people. Besides the Matrade centre, the government is also reportedly planning to put up a hotel and office building in the adjoining area, with the entire development estimated to amount to MYR 1.5 billion in total.

FRIM - Forest Research Institution Malaysia

 Since the day I signed up The Most Beautiful Thing ( TMBT ) 100KM trail run, I'm venturing into trail run. An unknown new area for me. I know the only place I'm going to train is FRIM.

On early morning of weekend, I can smell the fresh air when entering into FRIM area. I'm enjoyed it.

Trail run up to "helipad" 
It's a forest plantation, you see something different from usual. 

As TMBT is less then 20 days, a different kind of approach on training is needed.

Run Buddy Run Nike+ Challenge - Nov 15, 2011

Since my last post Nov 5, 2011, I was stopped using Nike+ over the weekend.
Just feel something not right in me. I was skipped Nike+ over my high mileages weekend and im only resume back on weekday.

Few day no clocking on mileages, my placing dropped. To be honest, seeing the KM figures in the Nike+ can be really de-motivated and some part its motivated.

I thinks i was demotivated, and i skipped using Nike+ during the last weekend. I really have no idea how people can run 300KM plus within 8 days... this really turn off to me!

Weekend were over, and looking at the figures again, I need turn this de-motivation to motivation as i need mileages for my 100KM The Most Beautiful Thing #TMBT. This week is crucial week, it's high mileage week that i can do so, so does next week last week to do so...

Okay, so i turn this into motivation and i ran Tuesday AM, Tuesday PM, Wednesday AM, Wednesday PM and Thursday PM all were at Lake Garden. Its were a treasure to run so many sessions at 1 single place without getting bored. Thank you runners who run with me.... but most of the time AM sessions i ran alone.

Just in care: Those not aware of TMBT can click here: The Most Beautiful Thing 100KM

By this weekend which end on Sunday for me, i shall break into Top 10. Wish me all the best and good luck!


Putrajaya Night marathon 2011

The movement is arriving soon.
This evening, 8.00pm is the starting time for Putrajaya Night Marathon.

Last year, i have done badly. You can refer to here --> Putrajaya Night Marathon 2010

This year 2011, it's the different me. After completion of Ultra in June this year, I'm not the same Chin Ann as last year anymore.
BSN is the main sponsor. 
In line with their recent aggressive marketing plan on the credit card, they so smart to put BSN CC photo in my race running bib. =.="" 
Good marketing! 

This morning was running with sifu for 10km slow pace double hill route. This evening, i'm intended to start early myself to clock 8km and join the 42km marathon with total mileages of 50KM.

Not forgeting, I will be running The Most Beautiful Thing 100KM ultra trail run in about 2 weeks time, which held on 5 Nov 2011 at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. :)

Putrajaya Night Marathon 2011 where Yim and Karen will be running for Orang Asli after they finished 100KM duo in TNF race in Singapore this morning!
Salute and respect to them!

Nike+ Challenge #WeRunKL, Oct 5, 2011

3 days, its all i need to break into the Top10 of the Run Buddy Run Nike+ challenge by #WeRunKL.

I'm at 9th position today! The real competition is just started.

To be honest, i'm just a newbie to Nike+. Nothing much i know about Nike+ thingy. I know that I'm been running for the past 3 days continuous running everyday morning and evening session for me to reach at 9th position.

I know, running too much and on everyday basis will increase the risk of injury, which is a nightmare to a runner specially I'm preparing for The Most Beautiful Thing 100KM trail run @ KK.

  Hello top10 runners. Let's run.

Let's run, run and run. 
For every KM we clock, @NikeMy will donate RM1.00 to charity.
