JEROME & TOM DOING THE DU

Jerome and I participated in the JAPAN CALFMAN DUATHLON (MINAMI KANTO STAGE) last Sunday...5km run/ 30km bike/ 5km run...a first-time experience for me but not so for Jerome who is used to mountain-running, triathlons and other excruciating endurance sports. And yes, Jerome naturally beat me with more than 4 minutes!!

Results Under-50 Category:
Jerome 28th 01:44:32
Tom 35th 01:48:37

For next year, I'll certainly add some running to my training program. Highly recommended this Calfman! You'll love the muscle pain!

Let's see...that was out of exactly 70 entrants (including the Under & Over 60 Class). I know, it's not that impressive but still it was a fantastic experience, especially the second 5k run after 30k in the saddle...the leg muscles so confused they refused to listen to any commands from the brain...you become zombie-like!
