Road To IM Instagram Posts #roadtoIM

These are some of my Instagram posts prior to Ironman Philippines to motivate myself during training.


26K morning ride - photo taken on Heros’ Lane. Felt some tightness at the back of my left knee but generally felt good on my way to #NAGT except for the swimmmm of course #notoswimming #triathlon #roadtoIM #day8


I wouldn’t normally swim in cold waters but #NAGT is fast approaching and ME 😅 scared of the first leg, something’s got to give 🧜‍♀️🚴‍♀️🏃‍♂️ #triathlon #notoswimming #roadtoIM #day11


Blessed with a light drizzle, am wearing 3 layers and a bonnet running at a community park. Next week will be the #start of my 20 week training program for #IMsubic but first lezgetiton #NAGT #notoswimming #triathlon #purotri


Getting my feet wet....... again brrrrr #notoswimming #triathlon #roadtoIM #day15 🧜‍♀️🚴‍♀️🏃‍♀️💪🏻


When you only have time for a late night run 🌙 it took me almost 2 hours what most normal runners would finish in 1 hour 😅 at least I’m glad to have a workout... a very slow workout... 😊🏃‍♂️ #notoswimming #triathlon #pinoytriathlon #roadtoIM


As I was doing my usual long ride 10 days before an event something bizarre happened... I got hit by a truck and ended in a hospital 🚴‍♀️😰 the bike isn’t ok but the x rays are negative #triathlon #notoswimming #DNS


National Age Group Triathlon medal #triathlon #finisher


First training ride since the accident. I’m still pedaling, mileage would probably be around 55K. Just admiring the rice field in today’s route. 🚴‍♀️ #notorunning #roadtoim #triathlon


Friday training ride: my supposed 120K ride was cut short to 65K by a sudden lack of interest due to laziness 😅 but still a very fruitful morning ride #hello #triathlon #roadtoim #notorunning #notoswimming


Felt more comfortable in the water than last month. No intervals yet but I’m getting there 🤗 ... hoping for a much better swim in April #triathlon #subit #roadtoim #notoswimming


Today’s turn around point; a church in a remote village. #triathlon #roadtoim #notoswimming #subit


90K ride on a sunny day outside the city. Prepping for an IM makes my skin DRY 😅 happy training! 🚴‍♂️ #triathlon #notoswimming #roadtoim #pinoytriathlon


One sunny morning - view from my swim training venue. My pink bike deserves a ‘color’ post 😅 #triathlon #notoswimming #roadtoim #pinoytriathlon


Having an upset stomach throughout the week meant I have to change my workout goals and alter my bike routes to a shorter distance from home or TOILET 😅 #triathlon #notoswimming #roadtoironman #pinoytriathlon


A short and relaxing ride still within the bounds of my city. Recovering happily from yesterday’s long run 😊 #triathlon #roadtoironman #pinoytriathlon


Red Soil Sauna - having aching muscles on my chest and upper back means 😉 some spa time #triathlon #roadtoironman #recovery #pinoytriathlon


Back on the saddle - just happy to have my neck 🤣 back in its healthy state, I’ve ridden my roadie for just 40K as a precaution #triathlon #roadtoironman #stiffneck #pinoytriathlon #cityride



This happened on Good Friday - visited 7 churches with my roadie as part of an annual tradition 🤗 #roadtoironman #triathlon #pinoytriathlon


Off the beaten path - as I took a rest on my 90K ride I stumbled upon this nice looking pathway 😊 #roadtoironman #triathlon #pinoytriathlon #mtbcourse #hardpack


Biking near the seaport is such a relaxing ride. Fresh air of the sea breeze await. Four days before Subic International Triathlon and I’m just excited to test my gains in training for an IM. #roadtoironman #triathlon #bike #pinoytriathlon


Transition 1 - bike check in at T1, wasn’t expecting it to be a short line but I guess the timing of IM Subic this coming June has to do with it #triathlon #roadtoironman#t1 #enjoytherace #pinoytriathlon


Almost but not quite... 2:39 is all I got after a horrific swim, just seconds off of a podium finish actually but gained some knowledge on the bike leg which I can use in future races. Exceeded my expectations and happy to have raced here 😉 #SuBIT #roadtoironman #triathlon


Short morning stroll with my Brompton - checking the riverside where a new bridge is being built... I just finished most of my training goals with still a month before Ironman Subic Bay #brompton #roadtoironman #triathlon #chillax


Morning run on a really hot day 😅 saw this on kilometer 7, can’t wait for IM day June 3 MOOOO #roadtoironman #triathlon #jogging


2 weeks before Ironman PH 😊 I think I could rest now and wait for race day with less mileage and more foooood... and of course fewer super hot days like this #roadtoIRONMAN #triathlon


Final workout for Ironman PH, a 1.2K swim before packing my gears and stuff. I think IMready 😊 #ironman #raceweek #triathlon

Not Bad But I Was Expecting A Better Swim And Run Splits

I always have trouble with sighting especially on a counter clockwise route.
This is a rolling start and is potentially a problem for those who 
are racing for a podium finish. 

This is an easy and scenic route but the rain made the 
turnaround point near Transition 2 slippery,
too slippery in fact for some participants.

This is a flat course and I'm thinking I could run at least 46 minutes for the 10K 
but thinking is so much overrated ;) it's always way faster than reality.
