Fun In The Sun: Stop Being Bored

Salam to all my beautiful ladies.
I pray this blog finds you in your best forms of health and wellness.

Many people are trying to live a healthy lifestyle now more than ever before. Many are looking for that circle of friends that will support this healthy lifestyle. As you know, if we want to build a healthy community and have more health aware circles then we should start with raising healthy children.

As a physical education teacher, I have been searching for the right way to approach my students and encourage them into living a healthy lifestyle and learn how to make healthy choices. The best way I have found is to make fun videos for them and it has done wonders in my teaching so far.

Here is a little fun video I made for my students.
Of course, I never do sports without Nashata being involved. The ultimate meaning if comfort.
In this video I wore the following for the two different characters presented.
– Athleisure and Azza topletics Modest Sports Shirts.
– Hooda Ellipse and Raazglove Sports Hijbs

Finally I’m alive again!

Be prepared….Be very prepared! (I always doubt myself..Am I really prepared for this?)

When Cameron Ultra Trail was announced, I was the extremely excited….until the organizers released the official promotion video,…Then, oh my! Yes! It was no joke!…

The elevation was about 2280 m and the highest elevation that I ever hiked prior to that was only 965 m – the Mount Serapi in Kuching. I did not get to train enough for trail. My daily routine was training on the road after my whole day at the hospital… Yeszz! I thought I would die this time!

I flew from Kuching on Thursday night, after my Sarawak Advanced Life Support In Obstetric (SALSO) examination that evening. It was a busy and hectic week for me. The next morning I went to Cameron Highland for race pack collection and race briefing.

The day before the race, it was raining throughout the day and I was most worried.

Finally the day came. I just wanted to finish strong without injuries, no DNF and if possible, I wanted to arrive the finishing line before Maghrib prayer. I didn’t want to be stuck on the trail in the dark.

We started our crazy 50km at 5 am,..with a hike towards peak Jasar, with an elevation of about 1684m and distance 3.2km. Though the route was slippery, everyone was fast. Everyone started to leave me behind. I feel like a toddler who just learn to walk. I just keep moving at my pace, although slow, I just kept moving and stayed safe.

This pic was taken after I just had my Subuh prayer , 6.30am at the nearby road. Then I continued to run.

The next big challenge was Mount Berembun, with an elevation-1835m, and distance 10.1km. It was a never ending hiking up and I felt like my both legs were going to separate, I feltl tired and I wished to stop for a while but, no! I needed to keep moving, I wanted to arrive at the checkpoint 3 in time which was 6 hours from the start. And yes! I arrived at the checkpoint 3, 40 minutes earlier. Hooray I made it! And…Alive! Yup I was alive!

This is Queeny from Singapore. We ran together start from the Peak Berembun as our pace was not that different, we managed to survive together in the forest.

The next route is the BOH Tea Plantation. And yes, I love green!

The next 27 kilometres was by the hillside of BOH Tea Plantation. I thought it would be easy until…. I realised there were a lots of pebbles along the route, and they hurt the surface of my feet. I was grateful, the surfaces were not slippery like previous route. Oh ya, I like the weather at the run; breezy, not that sunny, less sunburn though. For those who wanna breezy run, you can try here,..and after that you can pick up strawberries with total mileage 30 km to Tanah Rata.

The never ending route!

My tips is..you don’t have to run all the way (if you want to run, go ahead!), but run when it is downhill or less elevation. When you are going uphill, do powerwalk. Am sure you will be arrived every checkpoint in time.

What motivated me to keep going is the view.. How could I stop if they keep follow me all the way 🙂

Along the race, I saw friendly faces. Every participant who passed by, would cheer up one another, or at least they smile. The marshalls were very nice and helpful, they keep motivating us to be strong. A moment I will never forget is when I arrived at the CP 4; one of the uncles made a cup of warm tea for me, and it was so nice to have it after a long, never ending run. I thought it was the best tea I ever had throughout my life.

– Finally I found road! ( and yes! I love road more! )

For every checkpoint that I stopped at, I refilled my hydration pack, drank and fueled up with dates provided. Then I continued my run. I just wanted to save my time and be on time at the next checkpoint.

At 4.30pm, I was on my way go back into the trail route which lead me to last checkpoint – checkpoint 3 at the Robinson Waterfall. It was about 8km towards finishing line. As I entered back the forest, it felt dark. I was feeling very tired, but kept moving. I just wanted to get out from it before dark.

yayy! Finally it almost end 😉

Finally, I reached finishing line at 6.12pm with official timing 13 hours and 12 minutes. Yayy! Mission accomplished! I suffered from no injuries, no DNF, finished strong and arrived before Maghrib prayer. And yes, I was alive. Alhamdullilah!

That happy face with my new favourite medal 😉

I would like to dedicate this longest ultra trail  to my friends, my family especially my mum who keep supporting me and always believe that I’m far more capable more than what I think. And lastly, I would like to say big thanks to my sponsor, Nashata for the event slot, accommodation, transport and of course big support throughout the event. Without you guys, I might not be able to do this.

Never Give Up Running : Dr. Rosmurni Ismail shares her Story

We are grateful to have wonderful customers and because of the support from our sisters and customers, we thrive to do better. We receive many feedback from our customers, and we truly appreciate them.

Here’s a story sent by Dr. Rosmurni who was the FIRST to finish 7 km fun at 38.4mins at the LOVE Subang Run 2014 on 9 November 2014.
To those who have challenges to find time to keep fit; You are not alone and you should not feel despair. Here’s her story, for the ummah.

Dr. Rosmurni @ Subang Jaya 7km fun run

Assalamualaikum,


I would like to share my experience with Nashata. I have been using the Nashata products for a few months back, can’t remember exactly. Oh yes! I purchased for the first time using Nashata coupon when I entered Malaysian Women’s Marathon (MWM) in March 2014. I saw the products displayed at the Dataran Merdeka Shah Alam and felt interested to try it out because of the modest muslimah design and suitable for outdoor activities(which I found rare to find).

 

So,I bought Amin Hijab and Riada Peplum Lite for my first purchase. Later on I repeated my order and bought  Heather Ultra top for more performance & Iman Hijab. I have been wearing them since because they are so light and comfy, and most importantly they cover right. I plan to buy more and I would like to congratulate Nashata for producing quality and innovative products. I hope there will be more interesting products coming soon.


I was a runner in my schooldays and till today, I love running. When I entered University, I just ran for fun and couldn’t do much running due to time constraint. I started having a family upon graduation and work commitment piled up. That was when I stopped running. But after giving birth to my 3rd child  in 2007 (my youngest child was 6 years old then), I saw an advertisement in the paper that there would be a Subang Jaya Run. I took my first attempt and I could run again after stopping for many years. I was very happy. It was a 7 km run and completed with a time of 47 mins. It was an awesome feeling and I started running constantly again and never look back.

 

However, Allah gave me a test, I had a miscarriage in 2008 and after a few months Allah gave me his blessings. I got pregnant with my 4th child and Alhamdulillah, I delivered my 4th child in 2009. Right after my postpartum period I started to be active again. Now, I am a constant runner despite being busy as a career woman, a wife to an excellent husband, a mother of four great children and lastly but not least as a daughter of an amazing mother.

 

So they say, Fit Parents Raise Fit kids. Congratulations to Dr. Rosmurni Ismail & family. 🙂 Here are her medals she collected since 2010. Keep going Dr. Rosmurni .
