Back in Perth for a week now... Eric's birthday dinner at FAB Burgers, Subiaco was a nice get-together. Thanks Eric for the treat!
As I spent the rest of the week on my own. Saturday's 30km run was so-so. Did it in 2:27.19 (average 4.54 per km). Found myself running slower and slower as the sun became hotter and hotter. My 10km splits were 47.47, 48.35 and 50.57.
Sunday's supposedly 160km bike ride became a discounted 130km distance. Temperature was a scorching 37 degrees. I only carried 2 bottles of plain water. Had to take several breaks under the shade. I was getting hungry and my legs were feeling weak towards the last 20kms. Learnt a valuable lesson - next time, I'll schedule a meal break during the ride and BRING SOME MONEY! Completed the 130.5km distance in 4:47.57 (average 27.2 kph)
Training on your own is hard work. No ice cream cendol at Bentong to look forward to. No social chit chat at the Sri Hartamas Petronas station. Just me, myself and the sun.
Looking forward to the day darling returns...
