As if you have read my blog, I am going for vacation to Spain during several weeks tomorrow and want to invite you to join me for a 10 K run trying to beat my PB, as of today 46´30´´!
What, Where, When, Why, and Who?
What? 10 K run
Where? Carretera de les Aigües (Barcelona) (my preferred place to run in Barcelona...)
When? June 30th, 7.00 P.M.
Why? I would like to meet, as much as many bloggers, but, this time ¨face to face¨to hsare with you one training and, if you help and support to try to achieve my PB in 10K, achieved in Hong Kong " 46´30´´.
Who? Everyone who wants to join!!!
Por favor, todos aquellos que os queráis apuntar a la misma....pues, colocar un comentario abajo para saber más o menos cuantos seremos...y no colapsar el parking de la Carretera de les Aigües!! (jaja es broma)
Btw, about the logo on the top, I was looking for a 10K logo and I found this one...I did this race in 2008 and was impressive, 11,449 finishers! it really remembered me Cursa de Bombers 2005, 2006...
I hope to see some bloggers on that date! Thanks in advance!
P.D: Per cert, no em vull oblidar de felicitar als meus nebots: MOLTES FELICITATS! Ariana i Xavi....fan 15 anys avui! Per cert, excel.lents jugadors de basket...el Xavi Assalit, és el actual base del DKV Joventut Cadet B (per mi un futur ¨Ricky¨però evidentment que ha de dir el seu tiet!!!) i la Ari millor base del St. Adrià, on juga la meva fillola i germana gran d´ells, la Blanca de 3 al equip Senior Copa del St. Adrià!...i per cert, els seus papis fan avui també 21 anys de casats! Felicitats per tots!
Spanish tapas in Hong Kong, everybody loves...best places! and new Tapas bar in Taste Pacific Place...I don't know the name of the bar...but I met Emilio the Chef...and of course, best Chefs, Alex (Fofo) and David (Uno Más)!! Thanks guys, good job!!
Let me just make a brief summary about my weekend...Friday tapas, Saturday morning, 3 half-sprint race training, then,3 cosmopolitans, more tapas and, as of result, no swim race on Sunday...hangover!
Now is time for farewells and dinners in Hong Kong, Hammes family are coming back to the US, that is the reason we had a wonderful "in-house" tapas dinner on Friday night and we share a wonderful time with Lori, Ellie, Max and "super-baby" Eden!! We will miss all of you ... also you Eric! ;-)
Saturday morning 6.30 am, I had Summer Training Series 2 with our Dragons mate...and I had quite fun during my racing...my swim was OK...usually on Top 5, bike much better than my first Series...indoor bike training helped a me a little?? ...no clue and my run average of 4'35''/km for 2 Km x 3...so, so!
I attach the link to our Triathlon Club website and of course any suggestion to improve it, I will take it to our President Richard!!...youc an check my results on there, too.
Then, same Saturday night, Peter (my bike mentor, over 30 years riding road bike!)and Justine, invited us to have a drink at their home before going to Fofo restaurant to have more Spanish tapas!...we had 2 or 3 glasess...and then, you can imagine how the night went on...late to the restaurant, after dinner, another drink, then, one vodka in a fridge bar Balalaika...and afterwards, Elaine, wanted to dance...but we stopped here...as I was supposed to race next day on my Open Water 1.4km swim race...
Cosmopolitans...2 or 3?!?Balalaika fridge Vodka bar...
...and you can imagine, my Sunday morning...DNF...or better DNS (Do Not Start)!!
Last but not least, RAFA....THANKS FOR SHARING WITH ALL SPORT LOVERS THE WAY OF FEELING AND LOVING COMPETITIVE SPORT! CONGRATULATIONS...YOU ARE GREAT!
1. Faster training, as usually, I do intense one over 85 RPM in 1 hour.
2. I stay at home and can watch a movie or just look at my kids and spend time indoor with my family...
3. No potential accidents...or at least till now! lol
4. Don't need helmet...
5. I get used to OSIM saddle...hard to get used to it...but more confortable than Cannondale Slice 5 Hi-Mod original one!
1. Not feeling the real race conditions, road uphills and downhills...
2. Not really improving my bike technical skills (avoid zig-zag move, arms in correct position)
3. Dinner is usually getting ready and smelling, then, looking forward to finish fast my bike training to quickly enjoy dinner!
Btw, I have tried GSC-10 from Garmin synchronized with my Garmin 310-XT and is working perfectly, as suggested by Mr. Lee (Flying Ball Cycle) store owner! Thanks! ;-)
I attach some pics of my first indoor bike trainer Pro Fluid...I hope you enjoy!
