Training for Excellence, with Excellent Training

How Mark Got Ironman Success

When I started to look for a coach for finishing an Ironman I looked Ray as I had already experienced his coaching and training style. We started with a phone consult where we discussed what my goals were how he ran his training for an event like this and what coaching package would best suit what I wanted to achieve so I went with the Team Qwik Kiwi. Ray understands the needs of life and can tailor your training around your individual needs, I work shift work on an 8 day week so training was written to suit this. As it is a long process to train for an Ironman Ray uploaded my training week by week and could tailor it to suit changes in my roster, fatigue levels, or if I had any injuries/or niggles. My intention was to do it once but I decided to carry on training for another year to complete Ironman twice along with a number of other events along the way including the Taupo 70.3 Half Ironman in 2017 and 2018.

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.
