9 April, Sunday, Bike Ride To Titi
2nd ride to Titi for the year. Rode with Don again and started from his home at Jade Hills Kajang. Felt unfit throughout the ride and Don had to wait for me after 2 big climbs.
Suffered big time on the return leg, particularly on the climb over Peres from Titi side of the ride. Was about 10 minutes slower than my usual 43 minutes over this climb. Was very hard and sunny throughout. Logged 145km by the time we finished riding.
Felt like Ironman training is well underway!!
12 April, Wednesday, Night Run at Putrajaya
Back at swimming pool in Putrajaya for another dose of solo night run. Last done on 21 February 2017 (pre-Powerman 2017).
Happy to be back and logged another 16km run.
14 April, Friday, Run (Tmill) + Swim (at Clubhouse)
Original plan was a swim. But a thunderstorm was brewing. So, switched to a 1km EZ + 10km (Hard)(55:52) + 1km EZ on the Treadmill.
Then, the thunderstorm was blown away. So, the session ended up as a run - swim brick, with a straight forward 1 x 1,000 Paddles with Pull Buoy.
15 April, Saturday, Run
1st long run since Ironman 2015.
Ran from home to Cyberjaya via MEX Highway - Pulau Meranti - Bandar Bukit Puchong 2 - LDP - Giant Seri Kembangan - Home.
Extremely tired, logged 28km by the end of the run and the timing was simply too embarrassing to be published here.
16 April, Sunday, Long Ride
Another 3 x Putrajaya - Cyberjaya loops 100km with Lee, Bey & Meng. The stiffness on the body vanished the minute I got onto my bike.
1st back to back long distance since last Ironman in 2015. Glad to finish the ride strongly despite the tired mind and body. Now, a 100km on the bike felt like a short ride.
