tokyo running days

A marathoner / newbie triathlete's training blog.

Thursday, June 8

2days to go.

Only 2 days to go before my first tri race. A bit nervous, but since I position it as a "holiday race", I am not so nervous about the race itself. I am rather anxious about packing so many triathlon equipments, as I am extremely disorganised person. I think I have to make triple check before I leave home...Weather seems to be rain. I am OK as long as it won't get windy.

My target times and strategies.

Swim: 40min. Try to survive. Never mind even if I become the last one.
Bike: 80-90min. Just go and go and go. Never worry about the run part, never try to save energy for the run part. Just go flat out!
Run: 45-50min. Do the best I can do as a runner.

At the Namban dinner yesterday, Gary gave me these words to encourage me.

"Mika, do not die."

Thanks, I'll try my best.



スイム1.5km: 40分(とにかくサバイブ。ビリでも気にしない)
