A month after I fucked up my back, I was at it again. Testing my limits, defying it, enduring the pain, finishing what everybody though was a crazy idea to begin with.
Swam 2km in open water in 53 mins. Biked 60km along the roads of SBMA, Tipo, and SCTEX and finished it in 2:12. A preview of IM Philippines? Ran 15km (well, walked most of the time) and got it in 2:02. Gun time: 5:33:40. Chip time: 5:23:37. :) Upon consultation, the reason why I had minimal back pains when I competed here, was that I was doing linear movements. No twisting, all forward motion. Pain is minimized. We are now addressing the pain brought about by positional stress. Hoping that this issue will be fixed after Ironman 70.3 Cebu. Still longing for my comeback in dragonboat. :) Thank you to everyone. Family, friends, Philippine Titans Dragonboat Team, FitPH Triathlon Team, TBR batches 2015 and 2016, and of course to the Lord for the gift of fitness.
See you guys in Cebu for Cobra Ironman 70.3! :) #TriUnited2 #TriathlonNeverStops #RoadToIronman703Cebu #RoadToIMPhilippines #PhilippineTitans #FitPH ##BumalikSaSimula #KalabaninAndSariliBagoAngMundo
