Ever since I started long distance running, my normal running ground is from Kiara to Hartamas and Masjid Wilayah and then turnaround, which I normally run with my running buddy, Kash. On some other little occasions, I would start my run from Bukit Aman, heading towards Hartamas and then turnaround to Bukit Aman.
Combining those two routes, I always had the intention to run between both extreme ends, i.e. to start from Kiara Park and turnaround at Bukit Aman, heading back to Kiara Park., or vice versa.
I mentioned once or twice about this idea, but some friends said the distance would be close to 40km, which would be a little bit too much to attempt, furthermore with a full marathon race coming up in two weeks time.
Not sure why, the temptation was so high today that I worked up the distance with MapMyRun (www.mapmyrun.com), for a running route from Kiara Park, going pass Hartamas, Taman Tunku, towards Bukit Aman parking lot, and make a turnaround there to get back on the same route to Kiara Park.
Surprisingly, I feel that this is very doable.
I think I want to run this route during this weekend, either on Saturday or Sunday, it depends. I’m so looking forward for it. This is weird, because normally I don’t really look forward for any LSD runs.
The only problem I’m seeing here is that, the hydration plan.
Normally if starting from Kiara Park, the normal hydration point is at Petronas Hartamas. However, will there be any other hydration points in between Hartamas and Bukit Aman? I know I can top up my fuel belt bottles at the food stalls at Bukit Aman parking area during the turnaround, but I don’t think my fully loaded fuel belt can last for 10km from Hartamas to Bukit Aman.
Hey, hang on a minute. I think can lah!
Have to struggle a bit though.
