Fuelling for Ironman 101: Part 4

Jeepers! What a month September was! A combo of intense training, a successful Prelim Final with West Coast and then a trip to Melbourne as part of the GF travel team (and we all know how that finished!) Plus all the end of season events after, including the John Worsfold Medal (Best & Fairest A

Fuelling Ironman 101: Part 2

Well, I HAD made a great start to my Ironman prep. Then I got to my last long ride before my adaptation week (where the training load is much lower and I can recover for the next 3 weeks of hard training) and things went pear shaped. I was riding on Sunday, approaching the half […]

Fuelling for Ironman 101

Well folks, here we are! I said I’d do an Ironman before I turned 40 and on Monday my 20 week training program for Busselton Ironman 2018 begins! Why am I doing an Ironman? Two reasons; 1. I’m compelled to complete the whole set. Triathlon has several distances you can race; sprint (750m

Race day

Race morning I felt good, not nervous, not excited, just ready to race. My carb loading the day before had gone well (see pics here) and felt comfortable, not too full and energy levels were high. I should have been elated about the conditions, it was cool but not freezing, the ocean was beautiful a

Cycling Caper

If you’ve caught up with me recently you’ll probably know that I am training for my first half ironman race! With 8 weeks to go till I compete in Busselton, training is in full swing and, for the moment, I’m enjoying the majority of it! This is mainly due to a SUPER team of professionals. [&he

Busso Ironman 2013

We’d like to firstly congratulate all the awesome athletes who participated in Busselton Ironman earlier this month. I was working in Melbourne (BOO!) but Emily reports that the conditions were fantastic and much more enjoyable than previous years! Well done all and we hope you achieved all your g

Enjoy the Festive Season!

I wrote an article for mind and body in The West Australian recently on the festive season. I’ve included a pic if you missed it. Enjoy the festive season and include those special treats that you only have at this time of year, just be sensible and keep plenty of delicious fruit and veg on [&hell

Congrats to Mandurah 70.3 finishers!

37 degrees and no wind during the run made for a tough race on Sunday! Luckily for us, our favourite spectator spot out at Halls Head has plenty of shade, the beach for the kids to play, and Dome across the road for a spot of brunch while we wait for the runners to start […]

Hydrating in the Heat

Winter in Perth seemed to drag on and on and then just like that, BAM! it’s summer and freaking hot. Mandurah 70.3 is on this weekend and with the forecast currently at 37 degrees, it seems like a good time to post about some key tips for hydrating in the heat . Hydration Checklist Keep […]

Training for Busso 70.3 2013

Well, I must congratulate every 70.3 athlete out there, for just being able to train and prepare for this event! On Saturday I will swim 1.9km and run 21.1km (skipping the 90km bike ride and letting my team mate Chris, do that bit) and the training for these 2 legs has certainly kept me busy. [&hell

5 and 2 diet

April 11th, 2013 FAD. DIETS. *sigh* Fad diets are always popping up and most are generally just a gimick. The bottom line is, people lose weight simply because they have reduced their overall kJ intake, not because they have drunk a glass of apple cider vinegar prior to eating, or kept carbs separat
