Why I ended up with triathlon training plan ?

When I first started my swimming session at bukit jalil with my coach peh. I never had an intention to join triathlon event or any running races. I joined the session because of a need to swim in open water as my friend aka lai ma promised to bring me to surf at cherating during monsoon season. Anyway I don't know what happen to his plan.
After 2 weeks of joining the session , I suggested to myself why not give yourself a try in triathlon event. So I started calling ah siong (marathon runners) to tell him my intention to train to run and since then I started running twice a week. That time I planned to joined the first 10 k running event in 2008. Unfortunately the first running event of 2008 is GE 30 K and the minimum mileage to run is 20 k. Anyway I signed up and begin to worry that I might get knee injury. Fortunate enough my knee is okay but I have lower back ache after the race.
Months of training for swimming and running , suddenly I heard Adrian (adholman.blogspot.com) and Coach Peh mention about Chin Woo biathlon that require participant to swim for 800m and run for 7 km. I was so eager to join as I know I need to start somewhere. I start browsing the Internet for it and I found the form. I signed up and I fax the form to Don Khor. I had a good overall finishing time and I'm happy with it.
And now my final destination is bike.
