About my ITBS...a very slow and desperate recovery, I will try to reinforce with physio sessions during this week in Hong Kong, as just my strecthing is not working too well...anyway, I will keep focus on just core strength and swimming during March's month at least...NO RUN, NO BIKE...
But, despite of that not so good new...I have selected 2 new challenges for my next months, especially close to the end of the year, to be really recovered from ITBS injury by that time.
First one, Garmin Barcelona Olympic triathlon, October 17th, 2010, with 6 of my Finance Checkpoint Systems colleagues, as Nicolas, Steve, Sergio, Patrik, Omar and myself...and who knows, may be more by this date joining for the first triathlon! I am extremely happy about this race because I will be cheered by all my family and friends, as Barcelona is my city!!
Second one...and may be my first 70.3 Ironman race, I have registered for Ironman 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship in Phuket Thailand, December 5th...as for almost all triathletes in Asia, best spot to race a triathlon, in all senses!!
Finally, I don't know, if I will be ready for 70.3 Ironman Phillipines, August 22nd or Japan, September 19th...but at least, I have my 70.3 Ironman target set-up, if injuries allow me, let's cross-fingers!
Last but not least, I attach my "injured" Half Marathon Hong Kong last Sunday February 28th...first 6Kms, quite good result...then, ITBS, killed my pace (+1'30''/km)!
