So September was about reframing, focusing on what I get to do and appreciating that simple fact 'I get to do this'! Like my previous couple of months it was a tough month, but using the above reframing I actually banked some solid consistent training and racing. If you follow my blog you would already … Continue reading Monthly Reflect & Review – September
So we are 2 weeks into our season and already 2 races down. My first race was the Sunny Coast 70.3 Ironman event held at Mooloolaba, the second race was a sprint distance race held at Raby Bay (my local area) as Round 1 of the Queensland Triathlon Series. I'll try to provide a little … Continue reading 2017 Season kicks off – A Double Race Review!
It's been two years since I raced here at Mooloolaba for the 70.3, due to the simple fact I am nowhere near fast enough to qualify for the World Championships that were held at this venue last year (2016). They made some really cool changes for the WC event and they have kept most of … Continue reading 2017 Sunny Coast 70.3 – Race Preview
So unfortunately August was a similar month to July, it was tough and didn't go to plan. We've all had them, months that nothing seems to be right, the wheels kind of just fell off. Again this month my training was off, still lacking clear direction (even though I have a very thorough race plan … Continue reading Monthly Review & Reflect – August 2017

My training was off, lacking clear direction (even though I have a very thorough race plan for the rest of 2017 & into 2018), life … Continue reading Monthly Review & Reflect – July 2017

Ive competed in NZ Ironman and then backed up to do Cairns Ironman about 12 weeks apart, both amazing races with some great results and even bigger highlights. Following the Ironman in early June the … Continue reading 2017 Half Way Review!

"Training to act in accordance with rules". Consistency. "Constantly adhering to the same principles". I believe this means turning up … Continue reading #disciplinedconsistency
May was a make or break month for me, with my next race in early June, it simply had to be a good solid month. The focus was disciplined consistency. I am now inside the final two weeks to Cairns Ironman (Ironman number 2 for 2017 & number 4 total) and am very excited to … Continue reading Review & reflect – May
This week I had a birthday! It's just like any other birthday and really almost the same as any other day of the year. But this year I ended my 4th decade and started my 5th decade on this planet, yes that's right I turned 40. It is nothing more than a number used to … Continue reading Age is just a number!
Following the Ironman race in March, April was all about maintenance and ensuring I had recovered properly to enable a short build and launch at Ironman Cairns. The focus was to re-build my consistency. I added a power meter to my race bike & am researching and learning how to use this new tool to … Continue reading April 2017 – Review & Reflect
