janshim After much thought and consideration (won't bore you with the evaluation process that lead to this) I picked up a @Garmin #Fenix3HR two days ago from @Tri-Ultra and logged 5.8 km the next day. In fact I ran my quickest Liang KM4 trail yesterday while testing the @Inov_8 #Terraclaw 250 (the traction is phenomenal on this technical trail that happened to be slightly wet from overnight showers!

  •   janshim The hour (and a half) was for the Inov-8 Terraclaw Would you believe I didn't even take the watch out to see? One of the ladies took the watch out to take note of the serial number. 7d

  •   janshim @get.fit.or.cry.trying I was so close to getting a Suunto Ambit3 Peak and would have kicked myself silly for not reading up on their huge pairing and syncing issues on Android. Can't believe all this time their Android app is in beta. Long story short, Fenix3 pairs and syncs to my Note5 beautifully. 7d

janshim My 4th run at Liang #KM4 trail this week with a 5th one planned for this Sunday! Trail runners that love the challenge of a technical trail with steep gradient should definitely have a go at KM4.

janshim The Liang KM4 trail is completely shaded which means you get a great hike/run on a highly technical trail without getting burned by the scorching sun. The forest, however, gets very humid (worse when there's no wind) and my favourite Buff head gear isn't enough to stop bucket loads of sweat from trickling down my face, irritating the eyes in the process! Back to my favourite #compressport visor from now on so sweat gets redirected to the brim instead.

janshim First trail run after returning from a 17 hour 30 minutes 9km #MountKinabalu2016 climb! Fight a nagging headache from low temperatures, sleep deprivation compounded by high altitiude, it's great to be home in warm and humid surroundings. Some people love the cold, it's just not my thing. It's time I resumed training for #BUTM2016.

janshim Completed one of two planned pre #BUTM2016 #30K trail marathon simulation. Wanted to see I could handle the intense 35-37 deg C heat and distance between Bukit Shahbandar, McFarm and Agro trails. I estimated it would take me up to 7.5 hours to complete (official race cut-off time is 9 hours) if I could survive the heat, distance and elevation. Did it in 6 hrs 56 mins and spending the rest of this week in slow, easy recovery mode. Looking forward to the next 30K in April before the real thing in June.

janshim One steep ascent after another, this technical 4K trail is anything but short and easy. Quite the opposite, it'll quickly leave you short of breath and your heart rate racing when negotiating any one of the big five hills before finally completing the route. It's topographical nature makes this "KM4" trail more intense than Bukit Shahbandar 14 hills which also makes it a perfect location for heart rate and quads training.

janshim Happening this Sunday 20 March 2016: Self-sufficient 30K trail run covering Bukit Shahbandar 14 hills trail to McFarm ending the day with a second 14 hills! I know, it's nuts and it's going to be painful. I am doing this to see if I can survive the distance, the heat and endure everything that comes with it. If this sounds like you, you're welcome to join me and a small number of runners that are training for their 30K, 50K and 100K race at the Borneo Ultra Trail Marathon #BUTM2016

janshim 5.5km of painted trail at KM7 in Labi a favourite location often frequented by hashers. The terrain is highly technical with moderate elevation that's suitable for most people. Surface roots obscured by dry leaves a tripping hazard to watch out for.

janshim Preparation and luck helps but timing is everything when it comes to photography. Four is the highest number of liquid #droplets I have captured to date when photographing delectable #salmon tataki for @excapade #brunei

janshim Had a great #hike that included short bursts of #trailrunning yesterday with like-minded friends at #BukitShahbandar. Weather was gorgeous and unusually windy so that's a bonus which helped make the 6 km route less exhausting. We had several first timers tackling the '14 hills' trail and I'm glad they enjoyed spending 3 hours of their #Sunday inside Brunei's most popular forest.

janshim Taking a short break from our run to catch our breathe and appreciate the picturesque landscape that gives #BukitShahbandar its appeal. Photo taken by @eric_pui shortly after we hiked up the steepest hill in the 3km extended loop.

janshim With my #MountKinabalu2016 climb in April and 30K #BUTM2016 race a mere 3 months away, I'm increasing the frequency of my training on the extended '14 Hills' #BukitShahbandar trails. The 6K route is packed with sufficient elevation and more than enough hilly and rocky ascends to send heart rate through the roof!

Many thanks to @eric_pui for his mastery of the #Samsung Galaxy Note 5 in getting this #moneyshot

janshim On the 3rd day of #ChineseNewYear, while everyone was still recovering from three days of food coma (including reunion dinner), three #trail monkeys assembled at #BukitShahbandar as early as 6.30am for a #halfmarathon 23km trail run. We began the run covering the 6+ km 14 hills route before continuing on at the 16km McFarm-Agro-Empire to finish back at #Shahbandar!

janshim Like a title from one of Ian Fleming's best novels, I received a very surprising postcard ... from Russia, with love!

I received about half a dozen postcards in Q4 of 2015 but this one from #Russia marks the first in 2016 nicely adding to my growing collection of postcards from around the world. Thank you very much to everyone who has sent them! ‪#‎ProjectPostcard

janshim You know you're a #trailrunner when ... it takes you half a day to carefully pack for your next #run compared to just an hour to pick out your clothes for #chinesenewyear
