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!

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

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

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.

Running and building blocks the hard way with Robbo

A build run with Robbo and Grant Giles (coach) at the helm. This is great Kona prep. We’d ridden 180 clicks this morning and now onto a build run down starting at Ironman Pace 3:50min/km down to 3:08 / 3:04 over 4 sections of build.

Back in Gods country

Nothing like being home and getting the job done with the boys.

Today, 190km on the bike. Tough set given my travels back from Canada was so long.

28 days to Kona 2014

Or if you are into your specifics, then it’s

  • 2,419,200 seconds
  • 40,320 minutes
  • 672 hours

I’ve decided to keep a fairly consistent update as I make final preparations leading into the 2014 Ironman World Championship.

What will I do during this time?

So stayed tuned to my road to Kona.

Didn’t set the World on fire
