Finally.. we did it

This is it! The unexpected result of Belacak’s performance. Generally, they are good in swimming; average in cycling (must to do with cap ayam bike!) and poor in running (must to do with lack of long distance training)! Happy? As a manager, I’m more than please with these results as majority of them were still young at age and proven their ability to finish the first IM in their life.

Haikal ... Looking forward for Kona slot next year....

Whatever the result is, they are the future Malaysian Triathlete; they will dominate the Ironman Malaysian category and Malaysian International Triathlon events as well.

See you at finishing line someday!!

There are another 2 cap ayam athlete were not in the list since they are joining for fun. However they manage to finish within 16 hrs.

I did it! Badrul was very exited finishing below 12hrs.

It is sad to report that one of them was hospitalize at 14km to finish due to dehydration. He joined another 8 Singaporean and 1 Japanese in Langkawi Hospital. He lost 10kg of body fluid and fortunately he did not lose his determination to defy the limits.

Visiting Ijat at hospital

1. You don’t have to be a good swimmer! Look at above table and I think it explain you enough.

2. You must be good in running! The biggest sin we made was, we did not go for long distance training. As a result, most of them were unable to run and walk because of cramp. That’s what happens to my Ayam Tambatan, Rahman.

3. You need to have a good bike to be the best but cap ayam bike is not a very good excuse if you want to beat Wong Ah Thiam’s 25K bike. I did notice Frankie was leading Ah Thiam more than 4 minutes in the first loop and 50 seconds in the second loop but later was 45 minutes behind. The result may be different if they are armed with good bike and strong legs.

4. Too much time wasted at TT. Overall spending more than 5 minutes for make-up.

Rahman wasted 7 minutes at TT2. 2 minutes for this!!

Running along Mej K. Just 10 metre

The Champs is Landed

I must admit that the bike route is chalenging. I did count the first 10 but I lost count after I found it I just waste my energy counting them. We did one loop and in the afternoon, we went for swimming.

For the first 3 days we meet many ironman. Not to mention Faris Al Sultan. He joining us for a swimming. I meet Dr Hans from Germany, don't be surprise, he will be in IM 08!

Someone was doomed by dehydration

I was being informed by coach that Ijat the Mamak was sick due to lack of body fluid in his body. He suppossed to be hospitalized but he refused to do so. The doctor called the coach to explain his condition and advise him to take 3 days off and drink 3 bottle of 100plus everyday. The doctor thought he was underwent hard training over the week as he lost substantial amount of body fat and body fluid (He did actually, last week was a hard one... he lost some weight and look skinny!) Hope this training pays in IM!

Well, I would accept his condition but will not tolerate if he fail to finish! Hu hu

Final Threesome Training Result

This is the reading for today's training. Bike time does not calculate 5 traffic lights elapse time. Some were good in swimming but poor in running and bla bla.... some pancit also. Tomorrow will be recovery 80k ride, Friday we will pack our stuff and Saturday we will proceed to Langkawi.

I'm still struggling organising the ticket as there are red-tape issues with the authority.... Someone with no brain but more power screwed me! I had enought of challenges in bringging those telented athletes to acheive their dream... we are poor, broke and no sponsor!! But as an IM wannabe, I will go beyond my limits to make things happen....
