Ironman 101: Race Day

What a day. Bloody hell I did it. And I wouldn’t change a thing. My Ironman adventure is complete and I had a total blast (yep, even during the run). Why has it taken me so long to post a race report? Probably because I’ve been regrouping since! I’ve been soaking up lots of time [&

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 3

I’m so glad I waited till today to write this blog – the last few days have left me completely refreshed and energised, ready to tackle the next training block. Maybe it’s the sunshine, or the 24 second PB on my 5km TT run (22:37), or that we (West Coast Eagles) won on Saturday nig

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 […]

Rachel checks out what fuels Tour Down Under

With the Giro d’Italia in full swing and The Tour De France just around the corner we very much have cycling on our mind! I was fortunate enough to attend and assist at the 2015 Tour Down Under in Adelaide where some of the world’s greatest cyclists took on the largest cycling event in the [&hel

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
