PRE RACE PREP – HOOHATHLON
Tomorrow is the Hoohathlon which is a mini sprint triathlon organised by hooha.asia. It’s got all the trimming of a proper triathlon and it’s touted as a fun triathlon. This will be my first ever triathlon and regardless of how short it is, it gives me a chance to put all these months of hard work to a test.
The Hoohathlon comprises of a 150m swim, a 10km bike and ends with a 5km run. I am used to doing brick workouts of 20km and 5km so I am not expecting any drama for those 2. The swim though only 150m is something I;m really looking forward to. Since the triathlon clinic earlier in the month I have really put in a lot of attention on swimming and despite the numerous setbacks in my swimming, I know that I will be able to get through it. I am not really putting any time for the swim portion though I would be happy to get it done in under 10 minutes. If I face significant challenges in the freestyle I can always revert to the breastroke.
We have checked in at the Putrajaya Pullman Hotel which is fantastic as the race venue is literally 1 3 minute walk away.
