UltraHumps: Round Taupo

Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge

Hi blog followers

Welcome to my blog as I continue my journey towards the Cameron Brown Award and IronMaori / Port of Tauranga Legend Series.

This week I have continued with Coach Ray’s training regime to get ready for the third event of eight for the journey.  My arm appears to be all good, well getting there lol, as the week before last I managed to return to swimming with both arms, but wore short training swim fins throughout.  This wasn’t so much for speed, but more for buoyancy.  In the weeks training just gone, I ditched the fins and only used them for Coach Ray’s drill/swim activities.

Lisa’s Journey, Week 27: Marlborough Women’s Tri… tick!

I’ve actually not got too much to report training wise. The last week was a hike and a bike. Yip that was it! Seems even worse now, having just typed it. It’s like saying it out loud. So, I was just putting this event down to the experience since the training for it had eased off.

Mikes Middle Distance Magic: Family First!

I’ve been juggling an awful lot this week.  My daughter Ava is 4 and doing more training than me. I am writing this the day of her dance show and she has been rehearsing her socks off for 4 hours every night this week.  I’m so proud of her! On top of that it’s my eldest sons 6th birthday today. How can I train when there’s more important things like building Lego and eating birthday food? Haha. Continue reading “Mikes Middle Distance Magic: Family First!”

Saturday Swim Session: 150’s Can Test You Like 100’s or 200’s Can’t

Tri Swim Coach

150’s are a challenging distance to swim. As it isn’t often swum in training (nor racing) the body doesn’t know how to pace them properly, so you get challenged differently from normal. This session is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer Ocean Swims.

Rebecca Runs: What a Winner Looks Like

Me. A winner looks just like me.

And it’s not because I won. I didn’t. It’s not because I’m only taking my medal off to shower this week. It’s also not just because I’m one of those damned millennials (“The Trophy Generation”) who think everyone’s winner (even though I most certainly do). I’m a winner because I turned up (Finishing is cool too, but just turning up is enough in my book). Continue reading “Rebecca Runs: What a Winner Looks Like”
