Weekly Hike of 20%

Hee.. Heee. It was appraisal time and after getting the hike on pay packet, I just thought of giving myself weekly hike on my running mileage. So far so good.

Week 1 : 27 Km
Week 2 : 33 Km
Week 3 : 40 Km
Week 4 : 48 Km (Planned, Done 18 Km, 5 days left).

Though I took up running as a cross training exercise to improve my cycling performance, I have been addicted to the runner's high which is luring me away from the my short term goal of MTBH 2008. So intend to carve out a plateau at 48 Km and log a weekly biking mileage of 150 Km.

After grazing through few pages of the book titled "Why not". My insanity is tempting me to leap one step forward. I find myself googling for "Half-Ironman". Alas! I do not know swimming and I can't the hit the waters and do that 1.9 Km of swimming stunt. So I ask myself "Why not?". I will learn to swim and make it to the Half-Ironman in Singapore next year Sept 2009.

Will that happen? Time will tell. Till then, its time to lace up & pace up!!
