Over the last weekend, I decided to take the Saturday off from work as I had an extremely long week working throughout the Haji Holidays. It has kinda affected my training runs and I was telling the DR gang that I desperately need to do some running outdoors. To be honest, I'm sick of treadmills since it has been always raining in the evening.
Saturday morning both me and Vons headed to Bukit Aman to attend the weekly MPIM (Multi Purpose Insurance Run) My First Run Clinic catered to beginners and intermediate runners alike.
Mark Williams was the guest speaker for that week and covered on some basic topics of fitness and performances. But before that, we had to do a 7km run first.

As we came back, we bumped into Sharon and Michael after their morning run. I admire both their dedication on training. They do pack loads of mileage per week.

Mark Williams covered topics on fitness and performances as the participants listened attentively. I've known Mark since last year's SCKLM running clinics. He is the official Head Coach for SCKLM and also by day he is a teacher at the Alice Smith School. Currently he holds an impressive record of podium finishing in major races and is currently also the Champion of the last MPIB Run for Men's Veteran Category.
His advice and sharing is very resourceful and the participants were in good hands.
