This afternoon while I was tracking and reviewing IM China results a very tough race extremely high humidity and temperature....two of my frineds Steve and Bryan Payne could not finish on their age group 45-49, but, I want to congratulate both of you for your tentative and I am confident that you will have a place in Kona 2010, as you were placed in top atheletes in your age group.
I don't want to forget about Spanish triathelete, Eneko Elosegui 6th place!! Congratulations!!
I attach a review of the race:
Then, I thought, let me try how it feels to swim 4Kms...and that is what I did yesterday afternoon at 5.30 p.m. and is quite hard...just thinking that after swim they do 18 Kms bike and a marathon running....just awesome and for not too many athletes on this earth capable to finish it.
You can check my swim training from yesterday...1h06' for 4.1Kms in Open Water....
Garmin Connect - Activity Details for Repulse Bay x 4 loops...to check how is an IM swim!!
Btw, during this week, I will visit Orthopaedics & Traumatology specialist doctor to see which option is best suiting my right knee after reviewing MRI and medical report.
As I have previously announced, I will not race 70.3 Ironman Singapore next Sunday, but, will cheer from home all Dragons Hong Kong mates racing it....Good luck!!
My next 70.3 Ironman goal for sure will be Phuket and who knows, if I will be ready for Japan mid September...let's cross-fingers!
Talk to you very soon!
