Putrajaya Triathlon 2012

Managed to clock 2:13:++ for putrajaya triathlon just now. (TQ to the big finishing digital clock). Rank #4 out of 9 participants in my category :D

Swim: i call it as SNAKE swim. I had the tendency to get astray to the left. Then i had to swim back to the right to get back in line. And then freestyle went back to left again..If u were one of spectators and saw somebody in d middle of the swim area, that was absolutely me.

Bike: meter didn't working. So funny it was working fine the morning before start. Cycled blindly without speedometer / distance meter.Managed to finish the bike portion within 1 hr 5min (27km they say). No sesat2..luckily..

Run: first 1-2km felt like every organ in the body shook. After that could maintain rather slow pace. Within 40min completed the run loop of 6km++. In great need to improve!

Overall i had so much fun and looking forward for next event : penang duathlon 2013 in march :)
