With the OSIM Olympic Distance Triathlon just over 3 months away, perhaps it is time to set some goals. I have never done a Olympic Distance Triathlon before, so I am thinking of just doubling my last Sprint Triathlon timings as a goal...
Sprint (750m) 00:21:36
Target for Olympic (1500m) 43 mins?
Sprint (20km) 00:41:56
Target for Olympic (40km) 1 hr 20 mins?
Sprint (5km) 00:32:22
Target for Olympic (10km) 1 hr 5 mins?
Next week I am going to be in India, so it may affect my recent spate of good training weeks (see my training log side bar) - will be limited to only 5km or shorter runs in the gym. Things are just going CRAZY in India nowadays - huge growth in the economy means lots of fly-in business men and professionals trying to get a piece of the pie. Hotel prices have doubled AGAIN, and I will be spending USD$300 a night in New Delhi - which is probably more than what the majority in India will live on for a whole month! The sheer contrast in India between the haves and have nots never ceases to amaze me!!
- Updated my weekly training log in the side bar. Off to New Delhi this evening - will try to take and post some photos if I get the chance. Was planning to do my kicking drills for this week before the flight, but as you can see from my training log I have missed that [Sorry
Keithmy mysterious swim guru buddy - not feeling too good after the run last night (feels a bit like indigestion - burping and all)].
- What this also means is that it has been 2 weeks since I decided to try to get in 2 swims, 2 runs and a bike per week, and I have yet to be able to squeeze in the fifth training session somehow. With the India trip, this looks impossible for this week too. :( Will just do what I can and leave the outcome in God's hands.
