With just 8 weeks to race day, I have started preparing for this race yesterday. I found out that my form is really out as I struggled to complete 10k in a slow 6min pace. Part of my planned race preparation are three 20k and two 25k LSD runs on Saturdays.
After doing some reading recently, I've come to the conclusion that I need to work on my upper body strength to improve my race form and running economy. This will include some light weight training with high reps and also some cross training in the swimming pool. I found out in Langkawi that my current fitness level allows me to swim much longer than I used to be able to.
Now all I need to do is ensure that all this becomes more than just a plan! Hopefully the haze and rain can stay away as well. I know it's going to be a struggle as it's back to basics again.
