Singapore Triathlon Swim Trials
Eddy had his first swim trials today, Benny and myself kinda pressured him into signing up his first triathlon knowing he could definitely blast through an Olympic Distance (OD) with ease, and registered he did, BUT… he signed up for a sprint instead. .. anyway its better than not signing up !! +1 for you buddy. Singapore Triathlon here we come.
The assurance of knowing he can do a full OD was because he came along with us on our Ironman training, laps after laps he followed albeit not fast he finished it all.. its the spirit that keep us going is it not?
Knowing very well of his timing, where he is able to run a sub 1hr 10k, swim a good 40min 1.5k it’s the bike equation that was missing because he never tag along (and silly me asking him to buy a bike to train with us).. little did I know he already had a bike, sneaky sneaky , I was even shocked when I was told he was a group cyclist with the Joyriderz before, not a member but he tagged along.. really sneaky dude..
So yup today was his swim trials and I met up with him at Kallang Basin swimming complex in Geylang Bahru to give some morale support,not that he needed it but I could get some time in the pool as well.
It started at 7.45am with a short brief and then theswim starts, the trials is to test first time participant on their efficiency in the pool before going to the open water swim next week. 30 mins after, he finished..little did he know I was actually swimming along side him lap after lap.
His time…. well He did his 750m in 22mins (sneaky again as he was drafting behind a
swim for me done today and then ready for my run/bike tomorrow.
WOD 2X100m warm-up 3x200m sprint 2x100m warm down.
If you are planning to come down to this swimming complex please do so as I feel that it is a good place for a training ground as I heard there is not much people there on weekdays, No doubt this swimming complex is a bit dated, I felt its well equipped enough for a good training and workout. See you around guys.
