34 years of endurance sports. At three events I finished absolutely last.
Endured a heart attack and major surgeries, but I'm still at it, only Open Water Swimming now.
Very ably supported by my Thai wife, Tip. We are living back in Malaysia and I swim to stay healthy.

Weekly training round up

Friday: 30 mins trainer

- SUNDAY, BROGA REVERSE LOOP -
I decided to join a group ride bearing in mind what had happened to our hero Yip.
The ride started at the Batu 14 hall. Many different groups were starting their rides there. My group had Bacin (Leader), Azwar (yes), Azhari, Shaki and me.
It was great to see Azwar who was doing his first ride for a long time. I only found out that the King's children no less took part in the Kids Tri organised by Azwar and friends. Good job. Not sure if his come back is permanent.
The ride had so many stops versus one when I do the loop on my own. But I struggled, perhaps due to the late night at Dr Tan's party.
Ride time: 6 hrs 11 mins
Stops: Top of Perez, KK Petronas, Top of Bukit Tangga, Lenggeng, Tekala.
Route: Batu 14, Perez, KK, Broga, Bukit Hantu, Batu 14.
