I raced Sunshine Coast 70.3 in the middle week of September and since then I have been a little off in my training. Feeling flat, under performing and just generally slower than normal. What I am coming to realise is that the way you feel in training can be completely different to how you race. I was not very happy with my run split at Sunny Coast so I decided to sign up for a half marathon a couple of weeks ago. After the race I had been struggling with my run training and assumed the race would be a disaster. I was wrong, I went out and smashed a PB (previously 1:36) with a 1:25 run. I thought this was pretty random. Then I look at this week. One of my swim sessions included a 1.9km TT. I felt good in the water and was disappointed to find I swam a 33. Then today at my sprint tri I absolutely smoked the swim. I don't know what the time was as the results aren't out yet but my coach, pro triathlete Ben Hammond was leaving T1 as I came in so I know it was a good swim.
Anyway that is just one of my thoughts about successful weight loss. I intend to offer you all my wisdom (for I am very wise) as I move along with this blog.
Anyway this seems long enough. A shout out to everyone who raced this weekend, especially my Team MaccaX friends and also anyone who took their first steps towards a better and healthier life. I know how hard that first step is but I also know how many possibilities are ahead of you.
Happy Training and remember to TRI!
