I LOVE DNF
DNF or Did Not Finish ; a terms that may shake your ego & gives u mix feeling which either break you or MAKE you.
and I face my first DNF last weekend,at Brunei Beach Bunch,on my fav kind kind of race, ultra-trail 100km.
From that day,it determines who I am TODAY. Finishing my PowerMan 2017 Duathlon of 10kmRun-60kmBike-10kmRun.
After the DNF.. it's contemplating & confusing. Wether to start or DNS (Did Not Start),can i finish this,am I going to face cramp or injuries like last weekend? I DON'T KNOW.
As I mentioned,the DNF is A LESSON LEARNED. I learned,I compute,I adapt & I execute.
Alhamdulillah. EVERYTHING WENT EFFORTLESSLY.
Plus,I manage to finish the course within 4hours/Sub4 & it's a PB for me for the whole course & each leg.
I was calm,no rush,stick to the strategy,take it easy & put on effort on certain point as I plan.. IT WORKS! No stressed Duathlon of Sub4 I've ever felt. Looking at my condition,I feel happy-sufferfest.. yet,was with @nevespugly time to time on each leg. At that moment,I choose to finish this with him. We manage to maintain & even sprint last 500m. Timing? NOT MY CONCERN AT ALL. "..if u want finish fast,u finish alone. If u want finish strong,we finish together.." #TeamWeekdays
So,if u experience DNF..don't let it break you.. you determined who YOU are. MAKE IT OR BREAK IT.
Learned from it.. & you will grow.
LOVE YOUR DNF.
