Well, training has taken a break this week, as we’ve been on holidays in Singapore.


Some of the deficit has been made up in walking – including one day with over 22 000 steps! We walked from Robertson Quay to Gardens by the Bay and back again.

My plan is to do an aerobic zone week this coming week before getting back into any intervals, just to minimise risks of injuries.

The City of Armadale Duathlon was today, so I was unable to compete, but it’s a sign the season it getting nearer


City to Surf – Perth – 12km – Tomorrow

Well, it’s race day tomorrow, and training has been mixed. About 4 or 5 solid weeks followed by 3 less than stellar weeks. Average of 3.5 hrs training per week, dropped to under 2 per week.

I’m going into this race at my heaviest weight – I’ll need to focus on getting to race weight over the 3 month build phase to the first triathlon.

I had a sever calf cramp this morning, getting out of bed, and I can still feel the strain now, so I’m a bit concerned how it will go on the race.

So, let’s see what tomorrow brings.
