Much to celebrate on today's Thursday especially after the Malaysian football team outscored the Indonesians in Jakarta, thus securing themselves (ourselves!!) the AFF Suzuki Cup!!!
And in all things 'self-professed greatness', the Prime Minister announced that tomorrow (FRIDAY...last day of 2010) will be a public holiday to commemorate the good job well done by the Malaysian team!!!!
Don't you just love it when the irony of the inner workings of this country, finally does work out to be of some usefulness for its citizens?!
Anyway....on a "heavier" note....I'm day 4 post MR25 Ultra...and feeling a whole lot better in the lower half department.
Went for my first "recovery run/walk" Day-3, on Tuesday...for about 2.6km.
And Day-4, again for a 7km run yesterday.
Did both in my Vibram KSO.....
Anyway....remember the toe-socks I got for cheap in several posts back?
Well....they were of the usual sock thickness and although they worked brilliantly with my Vibram Sprint model, I found it a tad difficult to stuff my foot into the KSO with the socks on.
KSO wearers (and also the Bikila wearers) would appreciate that the inlet to shove your foot in is tiny and takes time and, some moderate amount of difficulty, to get the foot in in place.
(it took quite a while to wear the KSO with the toe-socks....I can imagine how long it might take if I was wearing Bikila as I already take forever to get my naked feet into that model of VFF)
Then, I found THESE:
Really thin material...and it ends below the ankle.
I found them at SoxWorld....and they cost RM9.90......almost double of what I paid for the cheapo toe-socks from the 100-yen shop.
Since they were of the stocking material....they were really sheer, light, airy and thin.
And a little "worrying" to put on. I was careful not to yank them on as I was shit scared they would shear off at the edges.
But with a little dexterity, I got them on in one piece.
And because they come up below the ankle, once in the KSO....you can't really see that you're wearing any 'barrier'.
Also.....it was easier to slip into the KSO in the stockings compared with the socks.
I had some fear that they might slip off while running.....but after the 7km run, I was assured that they did the job of preventing the usual blisters at my arch...and they stay put on my feet!
I wondered if these were the same stockings that Amelia was recommending.
Anyway....tomorrow is the last day of 2010.
I've yet to make any real resolution for 2011.
Gosh I still can't believe 2010 is going to be done and gone once the clock strike 12 midnight tomorrow!!!
I really do need to reflect through my "achievements" for this year.
Oh...and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
