6 more weeks... and counting...
Finally completed my 160.7km bike ride! In a time of 5:48.37 - average 27.66kph. Took a brunch break at McDs for 2 Big Macs and 2 soft serve ice cream cones at the 110km mark.
Was maintaining above 28kph up until 120km but the 2 ice cream cones must have made my stomach felt a bit upset, and my legs were beginning to fatigue. Had to slow down after that.
Weather wasn't as hot as last week but there was a bit of haze due to bush fire from the day before. Total time taken including the break was 6.5 hours.
Was planning to do a 30km run, with the intention of improving on last week's time of 2:27.19. But that went up in smoke when I suffered a stitch somewhere around the 7km mark.
Stopped for a couple of minutes to nurse the stitch. I did the remainder of the distance in a slow, jogging pace.
I got so bored with the pace that I abandoned the run after 20km. Time taken for 20km was 1:43.45, average 5.11 per km.
In the afternoon, I went for a swim. Even that was much slower than my usual pace. Maybe the 160km ride has taken a toll on me. But good thing I was still able to meet my interval times. Swam 3.7km comprising of various sets in 1 hour.
It is in times like this where one needs the most motivation...
