I still remember my first full marathon in Penang last year.
Despite being completely unprepared, I made it within the time cap (if barely by a whisker). There was never any doubt I would cross the finish line. After all, anyone can cover any distance ; the only variable is how long they take.
Isn't that the same with life? As long as you work hard, stay on track, have faith, and never give up -
Success is assured.
It is under unexpected circumstances that I'm finding myself in the Standard Chartered KL Marathon this Sunday. A friend of mine was talking about letting go of their bib, which got me curiously wondering if I still had what it takes.
I quit my crazy chronic cardio routine more than a year ago so this is seriously taking a plunge into the deep end without knowing if I'll sink or sail.
The only form of training I have had over the past year is a mixture of strength and short intense metcon workouts. Will that suffice for me to do justice to 42.2km within the 6-hour time cap?
" Do you think you'll make it? "
A friend of mine queried.
" The worst that could happen is that I don't. "
Was my response.
I can accept failure.
