Training With Soon-To-Be-(God willing)-IronMan
I was inspired by Upiq's Triathlon achievements.. who wasn't? And now I have such a strong urge to get off my butt and do something..
First thing's first.. I'm going to shop!! Yup, some people go to Seremban to by curtain/carpet/ wedding stuffs, I am going to Seremban tomorrow to buy a secondhand compact crank from this Mat Salleh who stays there.. (ye-lah, aku ni kan lembik sikit, mana tahan pakai gear yang besar, so kenalah cari gearing yang compact sikit!- FYI, the ride starts with a ride up to Genting Sepah!!). I'll be back in KL by noon, then I'll be setting up the crank and tuning my bike for Saturday..
coze on Saturdayyyy... I'm gonna be training/riding with IronMan 2009 hopeful, Kam Kasturie!
FYI, the IronMan consist of 3 disciplines- 4km swim, 180km bicycle and 42km run. Kam will be doing all this on 28/2/2009.. that said, he has another 9 months to train..
Back on our ride this Saturday.. we will taking part in the Malakoff Charity Ride.. the ride consist of 3 stages-
stage/day one- KL to Temerloh (150km).
stage/day two (Sunday) Temerloh to Kemaman (160km).
stage/day three (Monday) Kemaman to Kuala Terengganu (170km)
A lesser mortal like myself will only be doing the KL- Temerloh section. But our IronMan hopeful will be riding ALL THE WAY to Kuala Terengganu. (ohhh speaking of Terengganu, just in case you missed it, Kam also swam 6 km from Marang to Pulau Kapas a few weeks ago). And next month, he'll most probably be going to Kenyir for Kenyir Triathlon.. (wehhh Kam.. mungkin ni hint engkau nak berjodoh dgn orang Terengganu!!)
YESSIR!! KAM KASTURIE, WE SALUTE YOUR IRONMAN SPIRIT, DETERMINATION AND DEDICATION. YOU HAVE THE BALLS OF BRASS TO TAKE ON SUCH CHALLENGE.
(p/s OP Shazly Khan (IronMan 2008), OP Fadzil (Cheif Kutu) and OP Ahmad Jauhari (multiple IronMan) will also be riding)
