Easy like a Monday afternoon

swim session

Today is a little easier than the last few.

Heading out for a swim.

Week in review #1, Grant Giles

Here’s the first in a series of weekly reviews of my training sessions from my coach Grant Giles from Aeromax.

Solider down, I repeat, solider down

man down

Another big day in the saddle with the Aeromax crew with a 200km ride now under the belt. A small run off the bike to finish the day.

We did have a casualty though. Robbo now has a broken clavicle, but you wouldn’t notice by this photo.

Swimming with the lads


Wetsuit on and putting in some good sets with the lads.





More challenging in Shepparton

Challenge Australia Ironman - Melbourne

Several months ago I was approached from the Challenge Family to see if I’d like to race the now named Challenge Shepparton.

With the revamped and much improved course how could I not say “yes.”

Earlier this year I took the win at Challenge Melbourne against a very fast field and it would be great to take out the double this year in Shepparton.

I’m really excited to come back to Shepparton to race again.

See you there!

Sleeping in a little is good


A little later start today. Mitchy and I started with hills reps and the afternoon I did a fairly easy 4.5km swim.

Nothing sweeter than running with Mitch


Track set in the cane fields and great to be back training with my mate Mitchy.

Shuffle time in Ballina

The Cape Byron Lighthouse, Byron Bay, Australia

My poor legs are stuffed after that. Rest is needed. Ohh no, no chance…. Next up, a quick swim.

Looking forward to a brew


Morning brew ride with the fellas. Missed these while being in Boulder. Nothing tastes as good as coffee here in Aus.

Hills again

Early Morning Sun, Ballina, NSW, Australia

Doesn’t seem like I left Boulder at all with these hills. Hello good friends.
