UltraHumps: 1000 Km Challenge

A recent article (blog) I wrote on 23 April 2019 was called ‘UltraHumps – Jacobs Ladder 7 Peaks Challenge‘. This challenge, which I came across in the gym whilst overseas for a number of months, was to simply climb the…

UltraHumps: ANZAC Day Abroad

For this article I have decided to stay away from discussing training, not because I haven’t done any training, because I definitely have. This week I would sooner reflect on my attendance at ANZAC Day, along with the rest of…

UltraHumps: Finding Qwik Kiwi Through Coach Ray

Hello team and welcome to my Blog. Before I get into future plans for myself with Coach Ray I have chosen to write a few blogs with a difference. Last week I wrote about “Can Ya Do An Ironman”, this week I will refer to a period where I lost focus completely and without even being a Client, Coach Ray got me to a finish line when stumbling across me at an Ironman event…

UltraHumps – Can Ya Do An Ironman…My Story!

I discovered Ironman simply by chance which I will describe in this blog, I was intrigued, in my mid-forties, but also over weight, high blood pressure, unfit, couldn’t swim, didn’t know how to use clip in shoes on a bike let alone know where the gears were in the brakes, ate crap food, drank to much alcohol and when I look back I was on a path of self destruction. So when I turned a leaf and signed up for my first Ironman ‘then’ decided to change my ways described above, people even told me or laughed in my face that I was kidding myself and couldn’t do an Ironman… This is my story to hopefully encourage others, Ironman motto after all is “Anything Is Possible”!

UltraHumps switches from the Cameron Brown Award to Erin Baker Award

Hi blog followers and welcome to my final blog of this particular journey before I switch to another journey later that I come up with in consultation with Coach Ray. This seasons journey has seen me focus on the 3 events that make up the Iron Maori / Port of Tauranga Legend Series and the 5 events that make up the Cameron Brown Award. To refresh the memories the Iron Maori / Port of Tauranga Legend Series is made up of the Iron Maori Quarter Ironman in November; the Iron Maori Half Ironman in December; and the Port of Tauranga Enduro Half Ironman in January. These are 3 amazing events about promoting health and wellbeing and a great stepping stone into each other, and a great build into an Ironman if wanting to take that further step.
