20 years ago, if you told me, an infamous ‘putera lilin’ who would tear up at the slightest contact with sunlight, who had considered sports and fitness a jock-y pipe dream, that in the future, I’d cycle more than 200km within the span of two weekends, I would think you have gone off your rocker and ran off crying somewhere.
Flash forward to today......well........funny how things turned out eh?
Playing waterboy for the star of the show. ☀️🌡Razin has been training me off & on in various disciplines e.g. muay thai, cardio, core etc for around 5 years; over the years I've met a lot of "talkers" in the fitness industry but what I can say is that he is highly qualified from his sports science degree & various other fitness qualifications & 100% lives for what he does; he really can walk the talk in all of those disciplines.. and that's why he's the head for training & development of the Peak training team! But. . his riding is uber-ridiculous! 😂😂 Join one of his Peak cycling club rides.. ask him (not me!) when it's happening next! 😉😎 #MEXHighwayRide2018#TeamPeak#QualityTraining#PFCC#SOGO#CittaMall#SubangJaya#AraDamansara#Penang#Malaysia#StrongerTogether#MEXRide2018#Cycling#Fitness
THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON

Mind was unfocused,not determined & lots of things going on in my head last weekend.
Body should get ready for my 1st cycling event TeamTimeTrial (TTT) at Mex Ride BUT needed my mileage in running as well. So was thinking to run 100KM or 70KM at TMMT on Friday/Saturday night & cycling race on Sunday.. crazy much? Yeap!
Courage myself to starting line of 100KM, BUT my mind was all over the place as I already made a promise & commitment to the TimeTrialTeam..heart felt heavy & effect my running & even breathing too...fuh!
So,decided to DNF TMMT’2018 Race at CP2.
I believe, I don’t want to jeopardise the team with my weak performances & I should keep my word. ✊🏼
It goes along to a wise man said ;
“..if you have made a commitment & if people rely on you..you should always honour your word & your promise.. - Allahyarham Ishak Nengah,quoted by his son @flizzow .
Such a strong word & inspiration.
Takziah Joe for your lost & I believe, he is a proud FATHER. إنَّا ِللهِ وإنَّا إلَيْهِ رَاجِعُوْن
Innalillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'un
اَللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لَها وَارْحَمْها وَعَافِهِ وَاعْفُ
Allahumma firlahu warhamhu wa`afihi wa`fu`anhu

Took the challenge today to conquer MEX Highway
Have been driving pass this highway, but today is the first time pedal through it, TWICE! 🤣
Missed the official COT for 15mins+, but thank you for the chance to let me finish it.
只在startline很finishline跟大队 😜 在uturn附近看到你们在对路，这么近那么远! 不好意思让 @vongvongvong 担心了😌
还有好多方面要改进! 💪🏼 #我也戴上袖套了#mexride2018#nnjriders#maketeamproud
Tahukah anda kenapa Lebuhraya Maju Expressway (MEX) ditutup kepada semua kenderaan hari ini?
Ia bagi memberi laluan kepada Kejohanan Berbasikal MEX Ride 2018 dengan laluan sejauh hingga 95 km.
Team 7Cafe Rider turut tidak ketinggalan mengambil bahagian dalam MEX Ride 2018 kali ini.
Kejohanan sekaligus membuktikan khasiat kopi premium 7Cafe mampu memberi tenaga untuk bersukan.
Event kira OK la....tapi tak byk photographer la. Tu yg hilang motivasi tu. Utk rider2 tak kuat mcm aku, tujuan ride mmg utk posing depan camera je. Ye lah, asyik gambar selfie je masa ride, bila event la nak berharap ada org lain tolong ambikkan gambar kita. Tapi tak byk pulak event ni..aduhh!!..kalau ada photographer, bukit-bukau pun rasa flat...nak kasi gambar cun.
Kepada organiser Mex Ride, tahun depan kasi byk sikit photographer. Baru boleh kasi 5 bintang. Tahun ni 3 bintang ajer.
It's not what we have, but who we have.
Good friends @matthew.khorsandi @surush_a7 @sajadjafarnasab1372 don't let you do things... alone.
1st race in Malaysia @sajadjafarnasab1372
Done, MEX Ride 2018, 90km. The course was a killer, too many hill climbs! The last 10km was the toughest and mentally challenging episode. My time was very close to the cut off time, I need to work on my hill legs, next time.
