PD International Triathlon 2016

After 3 years of absent, this year I took part again in PDIT. No training and due to heart problem, I take it easy in the race.

Race kit pick-up and carbo-loading

Challenge Iskandar Puteri

This is the first time Challenge organized an event in Malaysia. The race equivalent to half Ironman Distance.
Carbo loading dinner 

Swimming in Puteri Harbour was nice. Salt water but no current at all.

Cycling route around Iskandar Puteri was almost flat

But during running it was terribly hot. I could feel my brain was boiling.

Flying near the finish line

Yes, done my second half ironman distance this year

After the race

Surprisingly, without much training my timing much better than Desaru and I managed to clock sub 8 but got beaten by Fiza & Diana. Isk isk....

StandChart KL Marathon 2016

My first marathon this year, a 42km at 42 years old of me. No proper training prior to the race. It was long break since puasa. In average I ran 3km per week on the treadmill for about 2 months before the race. My target was sub 6 and managed to get it in the very nick of time after playing catch-up with 6 hours pacers during the last 12km...hehehe

Nervous?? Nope!

Yeay!! 2km Swim.

Bike 90km

Run 21km

Finished in 8 hours... bloody slow!

PD Isla A Isla Swim (Bagan Pinang Island - Batu Arang island)

I have not done open water swim since Kapas-Marang in 2008 and I only swam 5 times this year. Pretty tough event for off seasoned like me. Although the course only 3.5km but most of us swam around 4km and being pushed backward by the current in the middle of the sea.
