Daddy Duties

Filed under: Training — levyang @ 3:53 am

While the whole triathlon community was at Whiterock last Saturday, I was at my son’s school for the yearly sportsfest.  Not quite the adrenalin rush found in a triathlon race, but it was fun just the same🙂  For the first time, my son didn’t whine nor cry during the whole event (Yehey!!) even though it was quite hot that morning.  I heard conditions were quite difficult for the Whiterock participants as well😦  I send my loudest cheers to those who finished WRT!! You guys rock!!

As for me, I did a 14K run last Saturday afternoon.  I tried to simulate the conditions at Whiterock by running at around 1:30pm.  Whew, it was hot.  After 5K, I already knew it was going to be a difficult run even though I was going at a snail’s pace, about 6:30 – 6:45 min/km.  Finished in 1 hour 34 minutes.  And judging from the color of my urine (dark yellow, almost brown) afterwards, I guess I was really dehydrated.

The following day, I did the Ocho-Ocho route again in Alabang.  Like I said in a previous post, training in Alabang is fun because you can start your workout any time of the day.  No traffic, shady trees.  I started to bike around 2:30pm and did 8 loops of the Ocho-Ocho.  Wrapped up the long bike ride in a little less than 3 hours🙂  Good thing, I was able to squeeze in the workouts in between the intermittent rains over the weekend🙂

Cheers!

  3. Whay do I hear of these trainings afterwards? Anyway, I hardly train these days and eat a lot and just relax and do nothing, sleep a lot and just enjoy live. When is the triathlon again????

  4. Dapat pala tumakbo ka muna sunday morning e di nagkikita kita pa tayo. Alabang looks like a nice place to bike nga with all the trees and the bike friendly road conditions. See you at the races!

  5. Marga,
    Why? Were you grossed out?🙂

    Javy,
    Thing is, you’ll be ahead of me going into transition 1, what now?🙂 Don’t worry, I’m sure there’ll be marshalls to point you in the proper direction.

    Philip,
    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Like your 28K run at a 4:30min/km pace, I’d love to laze around just like that🙂

    Jay,
    So when are you going to do your first TRI? 🙂

  8. Levy,

    How the hell will I be ahead of you in the swim leg? Maybe if I drown you first then speed away…or if I wear fins!

  9. Levy, sounds like you had a great weekend. Added to that was the Dodgers sweep of the Cubs. See you soon!
