CANCELLED

Yup, the duathlon that I was supposed to do this Sunday was cancelled due to lack of interest. Only 12 participants! Hahhah... the announcement was posted on the Triathlon WA website but NOTHING was mentioned on the organizer's website. In fact, nothing was mentioned about the event AT ALL on the organizer's website before this... the only information was from the entry form which was posted as a link on Triathlon WA.

Anyway, the organizer called me yesterday and mentioned that a refund would be organized via mail. I have also paid in advance the discounted price of AUD80 for two events... another one in end of October. So, I would be getting to take part in that for AUD40... otherwise it's AUD60 per event.

So, back to training then... this morning's run wasn't too good... 38:30 for 8.5km (average 4:32 per km)... which is about 1.5 minutes slower than usual. Felt some slight tightness around my left knee again... also a bit tired, had about 6.5 hours of sleep compared to my usual 8 hours (yes, I believe in sufficient sleep for a healthy body and mind!).

Never mind lah, you know, I was hesitating using the new tri suit for the duathlon, because don't want to wear it out before my the tri races. So that's one less duathlon to wear it out.

12 participants? maybe duathlon is something they aren't used to...maybe they dun see the reason to run, bike and run again.

Ya, the organizer sent out another e-mail confirming that the event has been cancelled. 19 participants actually, I think some must have entered late even after the announcement... but ya, still very few.

We hardly have duathlons here, but I think other Australian states have them quite often. We didn't have ANY duathlons at all last year.
