Kona post race mini report

Goooood morning all, just waking up from a slightly uncomfortable sleep, sun burn and chafing all rolled into one made for a bit of a disturbed sleep. So by all accounts that was one of the toughest days on the island, searing heat, brutal winds and very high humidity, it’s hard to comprehend this during the race, you really just think you are having a bad day, and towards the mid point on the run I really was. Swim – this went as planned but boy, it was PHYSICAL this year, I know people are out there to win and place well but it was another level, animal like, no patience for the odd clash of arms or...

Welcome to Kona

What a buzz, its been a lot to take in in 2 days, in the last 48 hours I have dragged Kelly round to swim, rushed around to register, built bike, shopped, ate, slept, attended the welcome party, slept some more, done a swim/bike/run shake down, shopped a lot more and then finally racked all of my kit for the race. The town was already in full swing when we arrived Wednesday night, in fact the expo started Tuesday and by the time I left Kona this evening it was pretty much packed away, not much chance for us to shop but we got what we needed and a few more bits.

New season, new coach, new plans.

New Season – Winter ! Its the time of year a lot of athletes dread, getting out of bed early in the morning, cold, wet, snow, ice and darkness. Getting your head around the fact that you are going to wake up to this for the next 2 months will make it easier to train, I find it so much easier to get everything ready the night before, no excuses when you are tired if your bag is packed and ready for the pool. Just keep telling yourself, the athletes that you are trying to compete against are probably already up and you just lost an hour, see how that plays with your mind 🙂 It doesn’t help...

New season, new coach, new plans.
