Ironman World Championships Race Report – Part 2...

Kona 2019 – World Ironman Championships – continued So with the swim and transition 1 done and dusted its time to get out on the bike. If you missed part 1 – have a catch up here. Bike The bike route starts off pretty technical, 7 miles around town up and down Palani Hill before we get out onto the Queen K highway, once I exited the chute it was a short climb up the lower part of Palani and turn left for the first town loop, I got into my aero position early to make sure everything was working. Immediately I was in panic mode, my gears weren’t working, or more specifically my rear derailleur wasn’t working...

Ironman World Championships Race Report – Part 1...

Kona 2019 – World Ironman Championships The road to Kona has been well planned in our house for the last few years but as explained below the best laid plans don’t always conform to your expectations when racing an Ironman. In 2016 we decided as a family (yes, really !) that if I could qualify for the 2017 championships we would go for Kelly’s 40th birthday year. The plan was to combine the race in Hawaii and then spend time in Disney afterwards and make it a holiday to remember. I chose Mallorca as the qualification race, after doing so well in UK earlier in the year I was confident, I had also turned down a slot at...

Kona baby – Its almost race day !!...

Quickly before I ramble on about the next last few days, if there is anyone who wants to watch the race and know anything about it, please go here to check out TRI247 round up of the GB athletes and the timings in the UK for the race. OK. here we go. There is so much going on in race week that we have probably missed more than we have done, however, I am here essentially to race so its not about tiring yourself out chasing around town for experiences. The flip side to this is that by the Wednesday in race week most of the orientation is done and as Friday is the most important day for...

Kona baby – T minus 10 days !

I make no apologies for popping up for my first blog in nearly 10 months with 10 days to go to Kona, I have tried to pen a few times in the last few months but there has always been something in the way, work, family, zoning out in front of the TV. Even now I am in bed after a 9pm turbo session and trying to eek the last hour out of the day. What is keeping me going is the thought that in 10 days I will be on the pier in Kona (below), lining up for the start of one of the most important races in the triathlon calendar. With nearly 1800 of the worlds...

IM Mallorca 2016 – Race Report

Ironman Mallorca 2016 – A tale of two races. After a great result at IMUK I reminded myself that a consistent build up and training was the key to a solid race, with this in mind I settled into the week before Mallorca with a different mindset. The buzz after UK was amazing, a few were baffled that I declined my Kona slot but my year had been mapped out long before IMUK and the aim was just to win the AG, then aim for Mallorca, whatever happened, I was at peace with the journey I had chosen to take for 2016. At the start of the year I knew I had to have the best race of...
