Triathlon and Hollywood...together at last.
I picked this up from Commodore's facebook comment this morning. Did a search on the net. Lo and behold. J-Lo did her first triathlon.
Is this good for the sport? Will triathlon goes mainstream? I guess if J-Lo can do it..you can do it too :)
On the training front, last week has been a killer week. Did awesome on my tempo and hill runs. My long run I was dehydrated. Feel like crap. Glad to get it done.
I did have an interesting experience on my hill run. I picked the highest hill I can find around my neighborhood. I have been training at this hill for the past three years. It is 500 m long for 6%. For the past three weeks, I slowly increase the reps from 6 times to 10 times. Just amazing at seeing how my body adapt to the hill.
Last two weeks, a female runner started to join me on the hill repeats. Every time we run pass each other, I will ask a question. How many reps are you doing? What are you training for?
It turned out she is training for Ironman USA. I told her I did it last year and it was a beautiful course (and sometimes brutal..but I didn't told her that part :P). There were an elder couple doing hill repeats. They are walking instead.
As you can imagine, the hill became quite busy. Great to see I ain't the only one suffering out there =D
This week is my recovery week. I have one more week to build before taper starts.
