Due to my constant procrastination I have not been able to report on the 2 races - OCBC Cycle and the TriFactor race. There is much to learn from both of it but i’ve most probably forgotten about the details. Sigh haha.
I have the video footage of the OCBC CYCLE race so it isn’t that bad. Well basically i crashed in that race and pull down my team in the team classification but it was a good result nonetheless. My heartrate then was fucking insane. I believe it hit 220 at a certain point, i think i could have died. Either that or the HRM being faulty which i highly doubt. I’m too lazy and dont have the time to upload the data and pictures. Sorry readers.
TriFactor Bike race. I wasn’t prepared for the race at all, totally out of form from all the distractions. It was a fucking hard race due to the conditions for that day. The Wind…ohh the wind. It actually blew people off their bikes in tri position. Imagine all those with the 80/90mms wheels hahaha! And after the first lap it started to rain which made the U-turns pretty treacherous. The route was a very simple oval circuit with 2 U-turns. It was a cross head wind in one direction and a cross tail in the other. Everytime we made the U-turn, the acceleration out of the turn was terrible. The wind just smashes into your body and if you’re off the back, you’re out. Wind, Rain, Cold - An extremely touch race but i love tough races! That’s was cycling is about ain’t it? Suffering and pain. Makes you reflect and tests your strengths.
Alright i’m just ranting off trying to complete this training log with a final post which is LONG overdue. And today is the last day to do it. I mentioned in the previous post that i will be enlisting into the military. And yes it is happening tomorrow in less than 24hours.
Thank you all of you followers, this will probably be my last post for quite a long while or maybe forever. Sorry about the poor writing in this post but yea like i said there isn’t time.
Love you all and train hard!
