I know I can do it!!!

Whoaaa.. It has been a long time since the last post I made….

Anyway at last… finaly!!!! I did the 10K run in Jakarta Marathon 2016… yeeeeaaayyy!!!!

Berbekal latihan intensif selama 2 bulan di tempat fitness dan track lari GOR Soemantri, diselingi dengan yoga sebagai bagian dari cross training, akhirnya saya berhasil finish lari marathon 10K pada 23 Oktober 2016.

Hasilnya menggembirakan sekali untuk saya, karena target saya setidaknya 90 menit sampai finish, tapi hasilnya really unexpected!!! I did it in less than 90 minutes!!

Tapi selalu ada cerita di balik semua hasil. Mulai dari pagi berangkat dengan Go-Jek pakai acara handphone si bapak error, sampai di lokasi start sudah mepet, kurang pemanasan, hingga lari sambil hujan-hujanan di tengah jalan saat baru sampai di KM 2,5. Tapi hujan sepertinya tidak membuat para peserta menyerah. Saya jadi ikutan semangat melihat peserta lain yang tetap semangat sampai finish. Even someone with Rheumatoid Arthritis like can do the 10K without any problem. I’m proud of my self that day!

Belum lagi teman-teman saya yang mau ikut lari bareng sampai finish, ternyata semuanya telat karena hujan dan akhirnya kita muter-muter Monas hanya untuk janjian ketemu karena hari itu tidak semua pintu dibuka. Thank you yah guys…

Dare to run again??

Being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis last year is the worst thing I’ve ever heard. The fact is that I can’t do any physical work too much for months, just laying down on bed, being fatigue and flare on my joints.

But with determination and keep in my mind that I am strong, finally I can comeback to my normal life and start again what I like ><. And now, what a miracle, I can do anything without being in pain. That’s why I decided to run again!!

My target this year is 10K Jakarta marathon on 23rd October 2016. What a luck, I registered in promo price IDR 180K when normal price is IDR 600K 😀

That is not an easy target because if I begin to stop my medication (which are methotrexate and sulfasalazine) then I feel again any little pain on my joints, I have to stop any hard exercise and start another medication. But I have no worry for that. I’ve designed my training plan clearly until I reach my 10K target under supervision of my doctor.

First step, I started to do yoga to strengthen my muscle and joints. Then I’ll try to run in small distance. Step by step until I reach 10 K in about 8 months. Do you think that is impossible?? Dare to run again??
