Today, I have some news for you...
First, my training this afternoon, 127' 70kms in static fitness bike...(I still don't have my Cannondale Tribike, hopefully,by next weekend, I will get it from the store!)...it looks boring, but, I have been able to watch the movie "Defiance", quite interesting and good (I recommend it)! After, my 2 hours biking @ 125 heart beats per minute, I have followed Richard Thornton (Dragons Triathlon training tip , to run at least from 10 to 15' to train transition from bike to run and I have done it...11' 2kms (@pace 5'30''/km) and my heart beating below 160 beats/min.
Second, yesterday, I bought my new XXL Dragons Triathlon short and shirt...it looks good...soon, you will have my first pictures wearing it. Still pending to get the Trispeed...hopefully very soon, but, not available, yet. Richard, thanks for your yesterday's tips and to provide me with the clothes!
Third, I will participate on my first triathlon type race on September 27th, (Swim 500m, Bike 27 Km, Run 5 Km) "Above Challenge" in Shatin (website> http://above-challenge.hk/en/events_triathlon.html ), a charity race to raise funds for Hong Kong Red Cross Special Education and Rehabilitation Service. I believe this race will help me to understand and train transition processes and why not ... to measure my training status and strenght for my first challenge 4 weeks before it will happen!!
And last but not least important new, I did buy in Barcelona before leaving to Hong Kong, my new running shoes in RunnersWorld Barcelona store....and, as it happened during my first time there, they took care and record on video my steps to choose the best shoes according to my running style...result: Saucony Triumph 6.
Talk to all of you in my next post!
