My 1st Ironman Journey at Langkawi.
It all started in Mini Trialthon at Surabaya, then it all went up to registering FIM (Full Ironman Distance). I had no idea what i was doing here but i only knew that i was going to do it finish or no. I will fight till i die. My partner @mario_christian_manurip will be joining here.
During the Swim start i was all excited i can't stop jumping around. And it all start with a single horn. Ironman has begun. I swim for the first 1.9K it look great but the water taste like petrol and salty fish. I wanted to puke. But the real deal is the 2nd loop when we still got 600 meter left. A storm came and clash the waves together. Many athlete went inside the boat. While the rest just went straight to the finish gate.
The Bike Leg is full of rolling hills and steep turn. I don't know what to say but you climb with speed 10 Km/H and turn back down with 50 - 64 Km/H. It was really crazy ride putting our safety in term of speed. But we have to take the risk to conserve energy and time. Many of the guys got flat tires and fall down. It's no ordinary sports. It's a bloody one.. finished it at 7.24.
Running Leg is a disaster where everything goes black. I can't run. I puked 3 times. Got nausea dizzyness, almost black out. But more importantly i can't eat that night. Every time i tried to eat. I will throw it out eventually.. i walked myself pace 9 from 1km till 35km. And sprint the last 7 because of how little time we have. But disaster happen though i lost my timing chip during the last section i don't know how but all i know is that i finished under tge CoT. With Chaidir making e live IG story while i'm running my last 2 km.. when i look back up my chip stopped at 40.6 it must near the village and the end line where it must got dropped.
But beside all of that i manage to cross the finish line and cried on that place.
