Triathlon helps in keeping me grounded. It is such a demanding sport in terms of time and effort that you can never get too high or too low after a race. There is hardly any time to bask in the afterglow of a good race or dwell on the disappointment after a bad one as the demands of training beckon.
Yup, it’s back to the training grounds for me after Subic 🙂
This time though I’m happy that I’ve managed to work my schedule around so that I’ll be able to go to the ULTRA track oval for speed workouts and join a long bike ride during the week. I’ve been wanting to do incorporate long bike rides in the training regimen, but it was just so difficult to fit it in my schedule. With the wifey’s blessings, that is no longer a problem now 🙂
Thanks to Czar, I was able to visit Morong once again and do the Jalajala route today. The last time I did it was last year 😦 See, how long ago that was? 80 kms out and back in the beautiful Rizal countryside. The lowlight of which is that I almost had an accident when dogs that wanted to hump each other came onto the road and I wasn’t able to avoid one of them and I bumped the dog. Don’t worry, the dog wasn’t hurt bad probably took a blow to the stomach. I’m sorry dog, but you shouldn’t be humping in the streets, keep it inside, hehehe. Here are the stats of this morning’s ride:
Distance: 80kms.; Time: 2:49; Average speed: 28.1km/hr; AHR: 125; Peak: 152
Can’t wait for next week’s ride.
